HOW WE WORK

WHAT WE BUY

We buy vinyl record collections. We focus on buying rock, jazz, blues, reggae, folk, 20th century modern composers, and world music. However, the occasional soundtrack, country or classical record is sometimes included. We deal with collections ranging from a minimum of 100 items, to 200,000+.  Size does not scare us, in fact, we rather like large projects.

 

WHERE WE BUY

We are based in the Holyoke, Massachusetts area, and regularly travel the New England and mid-Atlantic region  to purchase records.  For large collections of interest, we will travel far and wide.  When the size and distance of the collection makes travel impractical, we will work through Paypal and pack/ship through either the UPS or Fed Ex stores.

ABOUT CONDITION

The value of a record is first determined by the condition of the cover and the condition of the vinyl. The artist, label, and pressing are also very important. But if the record is wrecked, that’s the end of value. Warping, water damage and mold, writing on the cover or label, along with breakage and excessive scratches, will all cause a record to lose it’s value.  Read more…
