    Hi all, I have been asked to sell a lot of old Vinyl Brass Band albums on behalf of someone, but have no idea of their value.
    Is there someone here who knows what stuff like this is worth?
    I can supply a list (im going to start writing it out now).

    Any Ideas how much i should be asking for the job lot?
    Also are there any particular 'raritys' that might be worth a lot?

    a lot would depend on condition. some old vinyl can be quite scratched. There are some collectors out there who love vinyl but would need to be in good condition.

    Thanks Keith! have just looked on his site and most of these records are listed with a price.
    Looks like they are averaging £8 ish each! I will send him an email, cheers mate!

    Might I suggest a slightly different approach?

    The list of vinyl records is extensive and would be a lovely collection to have, in whatever condition. If I was in a position, I might even make an offer. However, perhaps a much more philanthropic gesture would be to consider donating the whole collection to the National Brass Band Archive in Wigan?

    If we look at a couple of recent releases by Dyke and Grimey ('Vinter' and the most recent 'History of Brass Band Music' cds), they both feature older recordings. If the collection were to be passed on to the archive, perhaps some of these recordings might one day be remastered and made available for all of us to enjoy again.

    I know the opportunity to make a bit of cash is not to be missed, but I would urge you to consider this suggestion.

    It is a fantastic collection no doubt, but i have been asked to sell them by the owner, and i said i would try for her, so its not my decision mate

    Thanks for that link Keith - I was given a small collection of around 36 LPs a couple of years ago - quite atounded at the value of them - especially a couple of the GUS LPs in the collection at £16 each!

    The value of the discs are only as good as the demand for them. Neat collection and the owner must have been a steady buyer during the '60s and '70s. Interesting to note that eBayers have increased starting bids, generally, on vinyl. I'll still check out backroom collections in second hand shops as the shopkeepers want to see them go quickly (and cheaply!).
