Thanks very much for doing this Stu.
Top man!


Great Job Stu!

Any CDs? :wink:


Couple more things before I forget.
If you could delete your choice if that specific album has already gone,not a deal breaker,but will help me.

Please put your choice in each thread and not by pm.

I will automatically start a pile for you if you buy any album.

I will be sourcing suitable packaging at the end as will have a better idea of what’s required for the safety of the albums,so please be patient.

If you buy a large pile that is to risky to post,I’m happy to drive around to deliver for price of my fuel.

I have lots of mailers if that helps, can shove them in a large box and send them to you?

Are you going to remove the hundreds of unplayed records in them first? :nail_care:t2:



Thanks for taking-on this hero-tier Cat Herding exercise Stu.

The mod team should give you a ban-hammer for all the brain-donors who will ignore or derp-out every word you’ve just posted :hammer: :hammer_and_pick: :hammer:


If there is enough interest in the cds,I’m happy to go back to Dave’s flat and pick them up. I brought one box back,but didn’t have the room for them all. Let me know.

There are hundreds,possibly a thousand.


I would be interested in the CD’s, as well.


Also CD interest here


Yeah cd interest here too.


Myself and Guy viewed the collection and made a few films for the sale. Be prepared for a golden hearted bargain.


May as well mention it now as I know no one will read what I post on Monday :smiley:

There looks to be 2 of one of the mobile fidelity albums,but it is in fact just one,we think Dave got a new cover sent out as there is very slight damage on the corner of one. Will post out the spare cover to the winner.

Also will be checking all of batch A over the weekend to make sure there are no obvious visual flaws.

Miles Davis double album will be withdrawn as there is a one inch scratch on one of the sides.
