“I am always pleased to bid on your items and always very happy with the results… your grading is always spot on and your packing is bullet proof”  -  John Tefteller

IMPORTANT. If you’ve arrived here because you have old 78s to sell, please read THIS before contacting me!


9 NOVEMBER 2020.   CLOSING SOON!!  My thrice-yearly 300-item Auction of Premium Quality Jazz, Blues, Ragtime, Eurojazz, and Hot Dance 78s, including dozens of unissued Test Pressings closes on  Sunday, 15th November.  CLICK HERE to see the full listing, together with links to label images for many items.

My latest eBay listing, the final one of 2020, is now live and Auction items also closes on Sunday 15th November. The emphasis on this list is British and American Dance Bands, Personality, Music Hall,  and Rare Labels, with a smattering of Classic Jazz and Blues (there’s so much of that to go for on my own Auction!) CLICK HERE to see what’s on offer.

My Set Price Sale of unsold Blues, Jazz and Hot Dance 78s  from my last auction list is now up and running - and they really are selling like hot cakes!  There’s very little left, so don’t delay checking to see what’s still available - they’ll soon be gone.  CLICK HERE.

We’re keeping calm on carrying on!  To satisfy all those collectors suffering from shellac withdrawal symptoms, what with all record and antique fairs cancelled, we’re continuing to offer our regular selections of great 78s via both our twice-monthly eBay listings and here with our thrice-yearly auctions.  The only major difference is that despatch and delivery will be slower than usual, as in-transit times appear to be longer than normal.
