What styles of music do I buy?
I specialise in Soul, R&B, Jazz, Blues, Rock, Gospel, Disco, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Latin, and Classical music — but this is just a partial list.
I’m not sure if I have LPs or 45s . . . or maybe they’re 78s?
- LPs: “LP” stands for Long Playing. These are also often called “albums” or “33s,” since they play at 33 revolutions per minute. LPs are typically 12 inches in diameter with a small spindle hole in the centre, have a number of songs on each side, and usually come inside cardboard covers with artwork/pictures.
- 45s: 45s feature one song on each side and, at just 7 inches in diameter, are much smaller than LPs. They have a large hole in the middle and usually were originally sold with just a plain paper sleeve.
- 12-inch singles: 12″ singles are the same size as LPs, but have only one song on each side. These were made for DJ’s and often came in plain or generic sleeves.
- 78s: At 10 inches in diameter, 78s are not quite as small as 45s but not quite as large as LPs. They feature one song on each side and were made of shellac as opposed to vinyl. They were originally packaged in plain or generic paper sleeves and are quite fragile.
Do my records have to be in covers?
LPs have to be in their original covers for us to consider buying them, but we will look at 45s and 78s even if they are un-sleeved.
How Much are my Vinyl Records Worth?
Price can vary widely and is generally determined by three factors: artist, title and condition. After asking you a few questions about your collection, we may be able to give you a general range but the final determination is always made by inspecting your collection.
