Michael Holliday – The Story of My Life, 1958 7” Columbia DB 4058.
This is a nice example of The Story of My Life / Keep Your Heart by Michael Holliday. It was released on the Columbia label in 1958 – DB 4058 – and is in NEX condition. (An annoying scratch on the b-side means a 'pop' for about four revolutions and it grades as around VG there). The record will be supplied in an original Columbia company cover.
It is impossible to be an expert in all realms of collecting, and I am honestly representing this item to the best of my knowledge and ability. If the item has a fault then I have mentioned it. I ask that you read the description and examine the photos carefully. I also encourage you to ask any questions you may have during the auction to help clarify identification or condition, as I may inadvertently omit information that you as a collector feel is important.
I never use reproduction company covers - only genuine / vintage ones. As such - these may not be original to the record and only rarely will they be stunning, as - usually - they are between 40-60 years old. They may have writing or stickers on them, but will grade at least VG and upwards. And just occasionally - they are perfect! If by chance this is important to you - please ask about the specific sleeve pictured. Where I am not able to provide an original cover I use brand new plain paper covers.
If after you receive the item there is any problem at all please let me know BEFORE leaving feedback or leaving a low Item As Described rating. If you do not let me know of a problem I have no way of knowing what may have been wrong and I really do want to sort it out. Please note that I am not able to provide scans of paper items and I have no facility to record / copy any records.
Rather than click on the See Other Items link, if you click on either the blue Door symbol or the words Oldvan's Shop you will see my auction items and my Buy It Now items split into various categories which will make browsing easier! e.g. 7" single records, LP's, Books, Toys etc etc. You will not have to wade through hundreds of items that you are perhaps not interested in.
CONDITION. The majority of items that I list are between forty and sixty years old. Some are older and some may be a few years younger. I have described the condition of the item in my text but where applicable I have also ticked the 'used' box as even where an item is 'perfect', it is very old and logic says it must have been handled and probably used at some time over the decades!
POSTAGE in the UK.
Although I list many of my items with free postage in the UK please note that with my Buy It Now / Fixed Price LP and Single Records I do state a price for postage of a single item. This is because people often purchase more than one item and if I included the cost of postage in the price that would be unfair. My postage price for one 7" record is £1.45.
For my Buy It Now records 15p for each extra purchase will be added up to a total of 11 items. So, for example, the postage cost for two records = £1.60, four records = £1.90, seven records = £2.35 etc. In many cases this is a REDUCTION on the prices I have been charging previously. Also............... IF YOU PURCHASE 12 OR MORE OF MY BUY IT NOW 7" SINGLES I WILL POST FOR FREE IN THE UK - ANY AMOUNT.
DELIVERY TIMES. Although I have ticked the Royal Mail 2nd Class Standard option, please note that this service is reliable and often is unexpectedly fast.
I have also listed other faster options for UK postage (First Class Recorded Delivery + Special Delivery is available).
Worldwide Postage / Shipping.
Various options for overseas buyers that are stated when you click on the P&P Tab.
Upate - April 2014 - the new Royal Mail Air Mail rates have come into effect. After absorbing the increase last year. I have been forced to increase my postage rates for 7" Records / 45s slightly. It is annoyingly expesive to post just one record. BUT - PLEASE LOOK AT MY COMBINED SHIPPING RATES IF YOU ARE THINKING OF PURCHASING MORE THAN ONE ITEM AS IT REALLY HELPS TO SPREAD THE COST.
IF YOU PURCHASE 2-4 OF MY BUY IT NOW 7" RECORDS, THE PRICE TO EUROPE IS £4 AND TO ANY OTHER COUNTRY THE PRICE IS £5.
IF YOU PURCHASE 5-10 OF MY BUY IT NOW 7" RECORDS, THE PRICE TO EUROPE IS £5.50 AND TO ANY OTHER COUNTRY THE PRICE IS £8.
IF YOU PURCHASE 11-16 OF MY BUY IT NOW 7" RECORDS, THE PRICE TO EUROPE IS £7 AND TO ANY OTHER COUNTRY THE PRICE IS £11.
I AM ALSO HAPPY TO QUOTE DISCOUNTS FOR LARGER AMOUNTS. Just click to send me a message / question.
Please wait for my invoice so I can combine the postage charge.
PACKAGING. Please note that all of my items are well-packed in thick card or in boxes, and then wrapped in good quality brown paper. I do not make any separate charge for packaging materials. Many of my feedback comments mention my good packaging and I will of course continue to meet my own standards.
