Selling My Collection
Thought about this for awhile, now I think I'm ready to do it. I'm interested in selling a good chunk of my bootleg collection.
I started collecting in the mid-80s, through the golden age of bootleg LPs, and well into CDs. I'd say the last major stuff I bought was the Day By Day series. I didn't collect every single version of the same stuff, I was more interested in the actual music. It always bothered me when they kept re-releasing the same material over and over in a new cover with maybe one different track. If I had the Please Please Me Sessions already, once was enough. So most likely, I'll have the first LP or CD issue of something, which I'm assuming is a good thing.
If you knew me, you'd know that everything is pretty much in the exact same condition as when I bought it. All LPs were kept in plastic sleeves, non-smoking home, etc. If it was part of a set, I would always try to complete the set. And if it had an outer box or special sleeve or insert, I'll have it for sure. There have to be at least 300 or 400 LPs and CDs all together, probably way more by the time I get done counting it all.
It's mostly Beatles, with a good dose of solo stuff too, mainly Lennon and McCartney. Off the top of my head, I've got the complete Lost Lennon Tapes LPs, Beatles At The Beeb LPs, SAPCOR LPs, probably all of the Yellow Dog CDs, all of the early Vigotone, etc. I'd say if it came out from about 1985 to around 2000, I'll have it.
I started compiling a list, so far it includes all of my Beatles LPs. CDs will be next, then on to the solo stuff. If you're interested in seeing the list, or if you have a specific LP or CD you're looking for, just send me a private message with your e-mail address.
