Getting back into the swing of things, after a busy summer. I’m getting more enquiries from discogs now, so the cooler evenings seem to be encouraging everybody to retreat indoors and listen to more vinyl. There’s an interesting documentary on BBC4 at the moment about the rave scene, “Can You Feel It – How Dance… Continue reading Back in the House
Getting back into the swing of things after a summer break, plus the weather has been really hot here in the UK for the past few weeks. Not really the weather for digging out the vinyl, as I’d be a bit worried that it would start to warp. Not sure what sort of temperatures would… Continue reading Top 30 Items Sold on Discogs for June
I’ve been having a good look at my grading today, as when I started selling on discogs I was concerned about over exaggerating the condition of my records. The last thing I wanted to do was to get some negative feedback early on and not have the 100% score. I’ve still got it, both on… Continue reading Making the Grade

Second up was Ritchie Blackmore (the band’s guitarist) with… Continue reading Space Truckin’

It was a revolution at the time, replacing the phonograph records made of shellac. It’s strange to think that lots of other formats have come and gone over the years… Continue reading Happy Birthday to the LP – now 70!
Hello again! I’ve managed to drag myself away from the footy to do some cleaning. I hate to list dirty records, so my Knosti Disco-Antistat machine is getting plenty of use. I’d certainly recommend it, if you have a few dirty records that need a new lease of life. The older version is selling on… Continue reading Sounding Sweet..
Hello! Welcome to the first post on my blog. My name’s David and I’ve been a keen collector of vinyl records for many years now, starting with a copy of Jeff Wayne’s War of the Worlds that I bought way back in 1978. My musical tastes have varied a lot since then, depending on what… Continue reading Welcome to the Blog!
