A Dozen Original Demo's For Sale Prior To Going You Know Where

Recommended Posts

Please note ALL my records are Original US or UK releases I don't count later releases ie a 1974 release due to demand. I am fed up with seeing misleading listings that basically require the buyer to guess whether its original so forgive the indulgence or stating why the record is an original.


Please PM before paying as I might have had multiple offers.


Postage and packing for mainland UK is £2.50 (Royal Mail charge £2.34 for signed for with insurance up to £50). If a record exceeds this value I leave it up to the buyer, to cover records up to £500 the P&P will be £7.50 again the Royal Mail element of this is £7.15. If you do not select the higher value then I cannot accept a return in the event of damage.


I describe records as accurately as I can but I am aware that grading is very subjective, extra scans and sound bites can be sent on request. I pack records very carefully and have never had a problem with Royal Mail but in the case of records worth more than £50 it is caveat emptor "let the buyer beware" in terms of insurance.


The list 12 or probably 11 Demo's all relatively well known northern or R&B classics with a crossover/modern UK release


Dean Barlow - Third window from the right / Baby doll - Lescay Demo VG+ £125

Beverly Ann  Gibson - A three dollar bill - Jubilee Demo VG+/EX £75
