Musik ist schön, macht aber auch viel Arbeit! – © Jens Vollenberg
SINCE 1958.

Be curious! Stay curious!

I’m a music collector for more than 45 years now.

It all started with SANTANA in 1970 and will never end. Very soon I got into Jazz and lots of different styles: Prog-Rock, Latin, Salsa, Brazilian, African music. So, obviously I'm more into rhythm than anything else...

As my musical tastes evolved, I found myself less and less entangled by genre, or trying to fit music into one category or another. I don’t listen that way. I can hop easily from John Coltrane to Kraftwerk. Music is NOT about boundaries - it’s more about what suits my mood.

I love all kinds of GOOD music. Almost all records you can find here on RECORDSCOUT are from my private collection.
Now the time has come to spread it all over the world.

Feel free to contact me. I always appreciate to share my passion in music with others: jens.vollenberg@gmx.de

Communication welcome: jens.vollenberg@gmx.de

YOU CAN ONLY UNDERSTAND MY MADNESS IF YOU SHARE MY PASSION.

BUY WITH CONFIDENCE. MY ITEMS ARE MOSTLY PLAY GRADED!

BUT MINT COLLECTORS BEWARE! EVEN WHEN I GRADE A RECORD NM IT MIGHT PLAY WITH SOME NOISE.
THAT'S THE WAY IT IS WITH VINYL.
I HAVE NEVER HEARD A VINYL RECORD WITHOUT ANY NOISE. THAT'S WHY IT SAYS: "VINYL LIVES!". IT'S A LIVING MATERIAL.
I FIND IT ANNOYING TO COMPLAIN ABOUT NOISES ON 40 YEARS OLD RECORDS.
LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!
