Vinyl Records I have to sell (now with 93% less skipping)

Postby tfactor on Sun Nov 27, 2011 1:04 pm

OK so I recently cam accross a ton of records and was hoping someone could tell me if any of these Older Albums are worth anything? I have; some Janis, Peter Paul & Mary, Mama Cass, Three Dog Night, plus some older movie Soundtracks (Sound of Music, Oliver Twist, etc) and I can't help but think some of this stuff may be valuable.

BTW when you see this ---> " " it just means that the artist is the same band as the previous record on the list.

Anyway not sure if anyone else has ever looked to The Zone for guidance on this type of thing, but I imagine (if this Thread is made Sticky perhaps) it could be used for people to talk specifically about this dated form of music storage (Vinyl Records). Or for other people to use, if only to check and see if they have anything that should be considered to be put up on eBay or whatever? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks & hope to see others share. If anyone wants any of my Records - just let me know. I need to make space and rarely get a chance to enjoy these. So I'm wide open to selling nearly any of them. Except for Alice's Restaurant - since that one will likely go to my father for Christmas (unless that Record is worth a lot of money, in whch case - Dad can get another tie from Santa this year :? )

I'll check back soon but am I wrong in remembering that a couple of the Mods work in Music Stores or own stores or something? I can't seem to remember who but I am nearly certain one of the Zone mods was a Music Professional of some sort.

OK so thanks again for your time and hope to hear feedback (of any kind)...
Later yall

Seppuku, stereosforgeeks and KCBC probably know the most about this subject. Out of those three I think I've only seen Seppuku around lately, and even then only sporadically. I have very little knowledge of vinyl or pricing old LPs, but it looks like you've got a few gems buried in there.

Thanks Ribbons! Do you know if Brock is still lurking about because I think he worked in a music shop or maybe at the mall. Regardless I seem to remember that he was a huge music buff, though honestly I did Not know that about the others you mentioned.

I thought KCBC was mainly our resident expert on all things Literature, isn't he like a real life Professor?

Anyway I'll set aside that Salt N Pepa jam that I know you want, plus I was going to set aside the Oliver Soundtrack for DennisMM, the Sound of Music soundtrack for Kirk's 2pay & all the Niel Diamond stuff for Flumm. Though Papalazeru & MW are going to have to fight to the death (with large glowing dildosabers) - for me to decide who of them deserves the full Barry Manilow collection (because you know you want to see that epic battle).

BTW its nice to see the Zone isn't just for the work week anymore, weekend Zoning - woo hoo! :D

Interesting. When I was nine or ten, my older sister had the Osmond albums on this list, along with Bobby Sherman and Neil Diamond's Stones. I remember all of them. I wonder if she'd have a fit of nostalgia if I gave them to her for Xmas.

But I don't think so. I think she'd throw them back in my face. Besides, who has a turntable these days? Not me, and not her.
