This is Recollections
Select LPs page. The records offered here are 93 grade and above.
Most of the records are visually mint and all have been play-graded-new
records are an exception. The records offered on Select list are
$20.00 or less a disq-with a few exceptions-and as such are
a good value. This page will be updated regularly .
All offerings on this list are LP records.
Many of the records are exceptional.
All of my favorite offerings are highlighted-just how favorite is indicated by *s. One * means "kind of favorite" and ***** means "very, very favorite." I evaluated each record as a whole, for, in fact, the music and recording are inseparable. Records may be ordered by email at email@example.com
Records may be returned within two weeks if you are not happy with them. You will receive credit toward other records.
Shipping within the U.S, is $8.00 for the first record and $4.00 a record for additional records. People ordering from overseas should call or write for shipping information. All records are subject to prior sale.
I am now taking select records for money or trade. You will receive one-half my sale price in money or three-quarters in trade. I am also taking select records on consignment. Write or call before sending anything.
