    Roland, my wife's uncle just donated more 45's to us. This means yes, we have them. Catalog the extras? No.
    If they weren't valuable, I would throw them out into the dumpster.
    Go outside and enjoy life.

    Oh bugger, sorry Roland, I've been working every weekend for the last 5 weeks,

    is there anything specific you're after, e.g. Rock'n'Roll, 80's Pop, 90's Pop, American, British Chart music.

    Any groups specifically, eg. UB40, Madness, Shakin' Stevens etc.
    Everything's good!

    Of course I'm especially into 50s / 60s Rock 'n' Roll, DooWop etc...but nice 70s / 80s Rock & Pop chart tunes are welcome too. It's hard to circle a certain genre...

    Excellent Roland, even though I dont have much of any collection of 45s anymore, I have archived most every song of the era of from 1947 to 1965. Its taken years to do, and I am not done yet! If I find anymore 45s I will get with you!

    I'm just digging out this old thread once again...

    I'm still looking for old records, especially 45s from the 50s and 60s. I'm often browsing for whole record lots on Ebay because, I love the "surprise" of not knowing what's in the box. The problem is that most sellers from the USA won't ship to Germany or the shipping costs are ridiculous. If you have any old records you don't need anymore...just let me know!

    Sorry mate..... I'm always busy.

    I'll make a note to myself to jump up in that Garage attic.

    That would be cool, thanks a lot!

    Sometimes I look for 50s-60s records lots on ebay.com...but the main problem is that most of the sellers won't ship outside the USA or have ridiculously high shipping quotes. Oh well...

    I've got some time off over Christmas, I'll jump up in that attic soon mate.

    I've only got stuff like Wham or Bananarama if that's of any interest?

    That would be great. Of course I'm mainly into records from the 50s, 60s or 70s...but I do like 80s music as well, not everything was bad back then!

    At least I got some more Christmas 45s today... :o

    I think all these 45s were loaded into my 1958 Rockola when I bought it.

    The Bowie ones might be desirable and it looks like someone was a Wet Wet Wet fan.


    I haven't played any of them but they are all very clean looking.

    Are they any use to you mate?

    At least some artists and titles sound famliliar...and I like David Bowie!

    Of course I'm interested, depending on how much you want for them.
    I sometimes buy "surprise record packages" on eBay without knowing what's inside...they can be fun!

    I don't want anything for them mate, just the price of shipping (which may be high from the UK considering the weight) and some advice via PM.

    I'll wrap each in a sheet of newspaper, box them and get them priced if you want the lot.

    I have more in the loft (attic) when I get around to looking through them.

    Cheers.
