Recommended Posts

hi all, ok so what happens when that 45 as seen its day, hammered to death by every dj ,been booted,

vinyl carvered etc

just got me thinking over the years i have cashed in on a 45s success, but playing a few sounds

the other night perched near the rear of the box was my copy of pat & the blenders which hasnt

seen the light of day for ages. have over the last year pondered whether to sell or trade it on,

still on numerous wants list, but eventhough i dont really play it, do you know what, i cant bear to part with it "just because" it got a right hammering it is still imo a fantastic 45.

so anymore examples of played out hammered 45s you couldnt bear to part with eventhough

you dont play them?

or do you just sell them?

You play the other side of course... as long as it's not the instrumental.

Have always thought Good Good Loving was the best side by a mile!

yes have sold a few over the years, but im not a hoarder of 45s, dont see the point of

hundreds, thousands of 45s sitting doing nothing, rather have a box or two of 700ish 45s that i am

happy with, and that is starting to show as now im finding it hard to part with any 45 from my

collection. and even with this ammount of 45s i do forget what i have too.

With you on that Russ, once you can detact from the emotional attatchment of certain records then the process of selling is not a major problem, certain records as you say I just can't part with, George Blackwell, Sam Williams, Ronnie McNeir, Dena Barnes, Billy Prophet, Bobby Kline, Melvin Davis, Duke Browner etc. etc. I'm having more fun than ever, buy, sell, swap, trade seems to be the way for many of us, quality over quantity everytime for me these day's.

mark spot on, quality over quanity. and with the pound being so strong over the dollar

lately those non emotional attachments that i have sold have been worth double and have

enabled to put some quality 45s into the collection.

I don't have a vinyl collection so you could send them to me to start me off and then

call me when you want them back in 5-10 yrs time................. :thumbsup:

I'm having a ball on Ebay at the moment, staying away from the big ticket £2,000.00 records which get the big interest sometimes the little interesting bit's and bob's sometimes slip through the net.

Nah, that's greedy Dave! :D

You should be sharing your vast knowledge with some up-and-comers and give 'em the chance to be played out. If you can bear to part with 'em that is LOL..... :D

I know it sounds nuts, but I regularly flog stuff to people I think can use certain tunes - that's how things like Si Hightower and Bobby Taylor finally got out there. I'd almost rather see 'em being used than have 'em on the shelves gathering dust if you see what I mean.

I'm just going through all my gear at the moment and finding that I've got a ton of oddball stuff and quite a bit of this crossover gear too....

It is fun going through 'em and wondering why you kept something - I've still got some right oddballs though...... ph34r.gif

Know what you mean Mark with bits and bobs, just started to use ebay (not good with technical

stuff :thumbsup: ) and my first buy was a SHARON MARSHALL on Kayden M- for £9 inc Postage from Florida!

There's only one problem selling your prized vinyl, particularly when you feel it's run its course in your collection. A few years down the line you hear it again and it touches the parts etc. and you end up paying a lot more than you sold it for.........as I well know :thumbsup:
