GOOD NEWS! Unlike eBay, we don’t charge local Sales Tax/VAT/GST on purchases! 

Postage and packing in purpose-built new boxes extra. Winners only notified. Condition, as ever, guaranteed. Minimum bid unless stated £8/$11. I reserve the right to refuse unrealistic bids.


It’s quite simple -  there are two ways of bidding; first is the simple Straight Bid - you offer a fixed amount for an item and if yours is the highest bid, you win that item for your bid price.  Secondly, and easier for those more familiar with online auction sites, and for those collectors unsure of what to offer, is the Maximum Bid. You offer a bid to a maximum amount, which will be increased in 10% increments over the nearest bid up to your maximum amount. For example, you bid to a maximum of $100 on an item, but the next highest bid is $20 - you will pay $22, i.e. 10% over the the next highest bid. In the event of a tie the fixed bidder, or earliest-placed bid wins. Please send bids to

IMPORTANT! Please make clear the system of bidding you are using and currency you are bidding in (Pounds Sterling, Euros or US Dollars) 

If you have a maximum budget to spend, please advise with your bids. Please also double check your item numbers when bidding - I do not use titles on my auction spreadsheet, so if you bid on the wrong number and win it, it’s yours!


Payment by all major Credit and Debit Cards via secure email link*, Electronic Bank Transfer, Transferwise, British personal cheques and Paypal*. Regrettably, due to the high conversion costs and 6-8 week processing time, we no longer accept US$ checks. (* a small fee is involved) 

NOTE:  Some of the categorisation of certain instrumental-based artists, such as jug bands has been, by necessity, arbitrary so please check both the Jazz and Blues sections.

We’re pleased to offer more fantastic items from the collection of the well known connoisseur and record shop owner Morris Hunting. For over 70-plus years, Morris amassed a remarkable collection, notable not only for the quality of the records, but for the superb condition of most of the items, including 100s of Test Pressings, many never commercially issued. There’s lots more to follow!
