YOU KNOW I ALWAYS START MY LISTS WITH THE MESSAGE BELOW, WELL I REALISED THE REASON THAT I WAS SO CONCERNED ABOUT THE NOISE AT THE START OF THE RECORDS WAS BECAUSE THE STYLUS I WAS USING WAS SOMEHOW OVERAMPLIFYING ANY SURFACE NOISE — I HAD SOMEONE ASK ME LAST WEEK WHY I SAID IT CRACKLED WHEN IT ACTUALLY DIDN’T.  OH WELL…

 

HI, HERE’S ANOTHER LIST OF NICE ORIGINALS, AS ALWAYS THESE HAVE BEEN PLAY GRADED, FOR THOSE WHO STILL CAN’T GET A HANDLE ON THIS — IF I SAY THAT THE RECORD LOOKS VERY GOOD BUT ACTUALLY PLAYS MINT — THEN IT DOES!  IT WILL BE PRICED ACCORDINGLY — NOT AS A MINT RECORD BUT AS SOMEWHERE INBETWEEN VG AND MINT.  A RECORD CAN LOOK LIKE IT CAME OUT OF A SKIP AND STILL PLAY SUPERBLY. WITH MOST OF THEM IT’S THE INTROS THAT HAVE A LITTLE NOISE

LABELS ARE CLEAN UNLESS STATED.  ONLY THE A SIDE (THE NORTHERN SIDE) IS GRADED

 

ALL ARE USA ORIGINALS

 

IF IT SAYS SOLD* MEANS I'M WAITING FOR PAYMENT
