    So the guy i'm basically working for shows up at my house and says:

    "Here, take a look at these and take what you want. Sell the rest and we'll split the cash."

    He plops a suitcase down and opens it up to reveal somewhere in the 200+ range of original 45 rpm Vinyls of people like Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, and yes, even the Beatles. Question is, what should i do with 'em? I have an aversion to E-Bay, but if it's the last resort...

    Anyway, my thinking is that i'd let all of TB know before i started letting anyone else in on it. If you guys know a good place to look for fair prices on these babies let me know.

    P.S. PM me if you actually want any info on them.

    Would you mind sending a listing of items to abark@bellsouth.net?

    I will see if I can take some of those off your hands.

    Is that old vinyl worth money? I got about 800 old LP's in my garage from the 70's and 80's. Mostly funk and R&b, some jazz and some rock and roll. I have most of the old Parliament and Funkadelics, EWF, AWB,etc. Some of the covers were damaged when a neighbors toilet overflowed and flooded the carpet in my apartment. But the vinyl is still good. If anyone is looking for any old skool LPs let me know I may have it and be able to make a deal. I got Cameo, bar-Kays, Pockets, Rufus, Ramsey Lewis, Michael Henderson (he played bass for Miles - bad man), Narada Michael Walden, Chic, tons of Stevie Wonder, jackson 5, Ohio Players, ConFunkshun, etc. I probably will not be able to inventory this until the summer, but let me know if you have an interest and I can forward the list to you.

    Don't know if these things happen anymore, but what about record collectors conventions?

    You're on a role for reviving threads i'm interested in tonight Smash :D

    I still have them all sitting here. I'm done catalogging about 60 or so of them. Found some real jems too.
     
  11. my buddy found In the Court of the Crimson King in Goodwill. Or rather he thought he had, but when he got home and opened the case, it was something like Paul McCartney.....the case looks real nice as a wall decoration.... .
