**FEB 2023** Looking for Something..?? You can now browse "My Collection" - it used to be private, but I have opened it up to public view. Feel free to DM me about anything in my collection. Only two things to ask (1) be polite (2) be sensible if offering to buy something - I'm happy to consider an offer, maybe even a slightly cheeky one. Just don't think you can completely low-ball me. The lights and fire are still on..!! 😁 I'm simply downsizing a little to concentrate my collection goals slightly. 👍

After nearly 8 years on here as a contributor, and buyer, I have started selling off surplus & duplicate CDs and vinyl. I need to establish a positive reputation, and feedback, so please let me know if things need improving. in order that I make a positive contribution to the marketplace. Fresh items being added regularly - please keep checking my "Items For Sale." I'm happy to listen to offers on virtually anything, whether "Make An Offer" is enabled or not. Just drop me a message and I'll listen to any sensible chat around prices, postage, condition etc.

Record collector from Central Scotland, originally from Leith, Edinburgh. Currently drowning in 70s era Dad-Rock, its my thing I'm afraid, whether on vinyl or CD, but also cassettes, 8-Tracks, music biographies etc all considered. Especially classic 70s rock, fusion, prog-rock, The Beatles, Yes, Pat Metheny, John McLaughlin, Jeff Beck, Mike Scott/The Waterboys, Neil Young, the ECM label, classic jazz, whatever you have. Activities on here are usually centred on collection and inventory issues, to allow time to for listening to music, spending time with family & friends, following my football team., dreaming of Italy and fresh pasta.

And red wine. Lots of red wine....🍷🍷🍷
