Hello and welcome to my Discogs Page. I live on the Kent coast in England.

I have been collecting records on and off for many years, from buying records with my pocket money as a child in the late 70's and early 80's to being a nightclub DJ in the late 80's and early 90's. Most of the records bought during this period I still have and have moved house with me a few times.

I have a very varied taste and have been collecting records on a proper collecting basis since the early 2000's.

I suffer from a poor memory and a magpie instinct to buying so started out using Discogs as a tool to catalouge my vinyl collection and then found I had managed to buy quite a few doubles of things.

I have listed my spares on discogs as it's a great way of doing this but when buying from me there are some things to take into account:

I am a collector not a dealer and unfortunately have a job that takes up a lot of my time so responses may not be instant and I might not be able to post straight away.
That said I do work from home sometimes so will always try to answer questions as soon as possible and post as soon as I can.
If you have a concern with a record you have purchased from me please let me know, If I don't know I can't do anything to make it right

I have an Okki Nokki record cleaner and always wash my records regardless of the value.

I recycle record mailers and stiffeners from my purchases or card boxes that have contained more than one record for multiple purchases.

I am more than happy to combine postage

I am more than happy to consider trades and swaps, I'll only spend the money on more records anyway.

Lastly, I think that Discogs is a superb system, not flawless but amazingly easy to use and navigate. I love music and everything about it and this has helped in my enjoyment.

Many thanks,

Allen

That's probably a fake bootleg version then, there's one in the list as a 2015 unofficial German pressing so its probably that one.

There was a normal black release of this back in February from the same label so the 2000 figure could well relate to that one but this one as far as I can see is 600 with 250 of those being in the UK.

I very much doubt it, I'd say that's a misprint and its more likely 1000 or 1500. The Westfield branch had at least 5 copies this morning at 10.30

It might be that HMV only had 150 but it's probably not pressed in that high a number anyway. I got the only one my local HMV had this morning and it didn't sound like they had more than 4 or 5 to start with.
