The 'Does anyone have info about this record?'/ 'What is this record or collection worth?' Thread

Recommended Posts

Probably not the best spot but I didn't want to start a new thread. I was just given about 350 records that were found in two different abandoned storage lockers. Half are 80s dance and hip hop singles and the other half are classic and psych rock from the 60S. Very happy to find first pressing of the seeds first two albums in there. I am excited about that half but the dj stuff not so much. I am still going to check values because I found one that's been selling on discogs for around $75 but the majority are $1-$2. 

 

I won't list and ship anything for under $50 so I am guessing I will bring them to a record store. Any idea what store in the  CA Bay Area would be best and if they will price individually or just  offer a bulk price.

Why?  You'll be getting pennies on the dollar from a record store.  And they will only cherry pick you.  Those DJ records are mainly garbage.  Your best bet is to pick out what you want, then put an ad on craigslist for the rest at like $.50 - $1 bulk purchase, must take all.  I'd even separate the DJ garbage and sell it for like $.25 each in bulk. 

 

Then go for $1 - $2 bulk on the rock.

Oops, I meant $5.

 

Thanks for the info. The rock is actually all really good stuff minus a couple so I am keeping most of it. The dj stuff is all garbage minus a couple.  I knew I would be getting pennies on the dollar I just don't want to deal with selling it. I drive into the city every now and then to go record shopping so thought maybe I could dump them there. I'll give Craigslist a try first. It just doesn't seem like I will reach a big enough audience to find people that want these. I thought about posting them here but I have a feeling I wouldn't sell a single one of them.

HaHa.  well that makes sense.  I don't waste time under $9.  

 

And yes, you're spot on with the rest.  A records shop, unless they specialize in DJ vinyl, wouldn't want them.  May just have to give them away.  I've been down that road before.  Good luck.

I was going to post this in the most recent topic about this band but figured maybe here is better. I'm looking for a bootleg / demo recording in any format for the "Set Your Goals" album by the band CIV. I heard there is a version out there that is like a demo or rough mix of that album but I'm pretty sure it was never an official release. If anyone has info on it I would be grateful.

 

Thank you.

So I found this today and can't find any info on this pressing, I'm usually pretty good with this stuff, it's a Japanese pressing and isn't a gatefold.

Here is the Discogs link: https://www.discogs.com/Young-Tuxedo-Brass-Band-Ja…/…/332478

I can't find a Japanese press or a non-gatefold edition anywhere.

I'm stumped, any help?

Be sure you are looking at 'completed sales' and not asking prices, people can ask anything.

 

  Most record stores are gonna offer you 10-75 cents a record as a bulk lot depending on condition, titles, and if they think you know what you have. It sounds crazy low, but much of what they buy has to be dollar binned, some will sell and some will have to be trashed, they have to store them, price them, clean and rebag some, and pay people to sell them.
