Based in Manchester, Northern Quarter (N1/4), hence the name mcr1!
Often crate digging in USA 1989-1991.
Promoting and booking at a well known Manchester (Mcr) jazz club in the mid 90s.
Record store co-proprietor 1999-2007. Colleagues at the time were all active DJs and of those who produced and released output there are over 1100 credits on submissions on this site linking to their work. A very strong team indeed, good times.
Hobbyist and occasional dj since.

Info to self to track how the market for vinyl may change here over the years - as at Nov '20 the Collection Value ratio is Median x 1.9 of Minimum, Max is x 3.5

I'm now in the process of listing a few items from my personal collection that will be either doubles, versions I no longer need or "one man's meat is another man's poison" items I've picked up along the way(!)
If I'm a bit short of cash I'll sometimes list tunes that'll break my heart to see them go, keep checking! As at start of September '20 still only part way there, so check back again.

Update September '20 - I'm now listing a few items my music loving friends no longer require so my list is less focused on soul and funk than it used to be. That said, I'll be adding a few hundred more soul and funk tunes soon too, so use the filters on the LHS as you view my sales list.

FROM 28/09/20 I'll be selling to the UK only until I complete the ASP settings for other regions, will add EU in the new year once the mess with the postage to EU countries has been resolved.
It may be the case that some formats could show what appears to be an incorrect shipping price, eg 5" vinyl. If you are interested in "oddly priced" items please contact me before placing an order to discuss options. Eg, if the postage shows £4 instead of the expected £2 I can simply adjust it down to £2 before you pay.

I'm no longer a professional dealer so will have spent that little bit of extra time checking and play grading each item I list. So, besides the Discogs standard US Goldmine condition ratings, I'll try to add some European/UK Record Collector style "in-between" grading to each record's notes. If you need any more info than that just get in touch.
