About The Record Dealer:
Our business began back in 1991 when my dad decided to by a CD player. There wasn’t enough room for all the vinyl and some funds had to be raised to buy all the music he loved on CD. The Vinyl collection had to go. I was just a teenager, but loved helping out at the record fairs as my Dad sold off his collection. My passion for collecting began. I started buying at Boot sales and charity shops and then I began importing vinyl when I lived in Australia. On my return to the UK in 2010 I decided to sell off my beloved record collection and eventually went full time in the Vinyl business and have never looked back.
MY PASSION IS
VINYL RECORDS. IT’S NOT
A HOBBY OR A SECOND JOB,
I LIVE IT DAY IN
Hi, I’m Steve:
I was pretty much born surrounded by Vinyl Records, my dad had a great collection and I grew up listening to the Beatles, Stones, Who, Kinks, Bowie all that classic Rock and Pop from the 1960’s. My dad tells me I was trying to put records on the deck when I was only two and broke his new diamond stylus. Apparently I got a big telling off for that, but it didn’t stop the passion!
I grew up in the era of CD’s and cassettes, but amassed a nice vinyl collection of the Brit Pop and Indie rock during the 1990’s. I realised why vinyl was so special. It’s not just the richer sound quality that you get from vinyl, but it’s also about the artwork, the inserts, the posters, the gatefold sleeves. Or just shifting through a dusty box of 1960’s 45’s. Even the smell of it!
I love to meet other enthusiasts that are selling and buying vinyl. I want to hear the stories of where they were and what they were doing while they amassed the vinyl collection. I haven’t met a person yet that hasn’t struggled with selling their collection and it’s never just about the music that’s easy enough to find on CD or download, no it’s always about the great memories of hanging out with University friends, or going to see a band that became big down at the local pub. I buy a lot of inherited collections too and I understand how difficult it can be to part with the records, The main motivation for all sellers is they haven’t got enough time to play them any more and they really want others to have the same enjoyment they had from the records. I can help make this happen.
My passion is vinyl records, it’s not a hobby or a second job, I live it day in day out. I want to meet you. I want to make the process fair and easy for you to sell your records. Most of all I really want to get your records into the hands of collectors around the world so that your records will be enjoyed by someone all over again.
