A handful of records
« on: September 20, 2019, 09:29:03 PM »
I have been handed a personís old collection, unfortunately they are not in very good shape.

I havenít even graded the quality of the records but the quality some of the covers are fair to good (at best) and really f@$!3d (at worst) with pretty bad water damage so based on this Iíd be very surprised if any of the records themselves stand above VG.

Anyway the pile (of 16) free to a good home, collection from me in either edenvale over weekends or Nasrec during business hours.

Pics of the record here (not pictured is Kylie Minogueís debit album which is based on the cover probably in the best shape) mostly are SA pressings barring I think 1 or 2 that could be Uk.

It is unfortunate. The doors particularly the cover is ruined, I can barely get the record out but the Van Morrison, Mango Groove, George Micheal, the Kylie are Iíd say in the better condition.

Having had a better chance to look at the damage this morning, it seems to be more superficial than anything, dust, dirt, mainly water damage to the covers, but I donít see any serious scratches on the records themselves.
It seems they are actually in not as bad a shape as initially thought, and should be good after being given a decent bath with an ultrasonic preferably and cleaning via RCM
