How it all started…

Hi, my name is Steve, and how my introduction into the world of vinyl records is through buying, collecting, and selling vinyl records for over 30 years. As a teenager, I remember the joy I used to get from helping out at record fairs with my Dad, which is where my passion for record and LP collecting began. I was pretty much born surrounded by Vinyl Records.

My dad had a great collection and thanks to him I grew up listening to great bands such as The Beatles, The Stones, The Who, Kinks, Bowie and all that classic Rock and Pop from the 1960’s.

From this, 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, and the gatefold sleeves. Or just simply shifting through a dusty box of 1960’s 45’s. Even the smell of it!

From helping out my dad at record fairs in the 90’s to now running my own successful vinyl records business in the UK.

I started off buying singles and LP’s at boot sales and charity shops and have even imported vinyl when I lived in Australia. On my return to the UK, some years later, I decided to sell off my beloved record collection and eventually went full-time in the vinyl business.

I grew up in the era of CD’s and cassettes (if you can remember them) but amassed a nice vinyl collection of the Brit Pop and Indie Rock during the 1990’s.

Behind most vinyl collections I buy there is a great story to be told…

One of the best things about this industry is that I love to meet other vinyl record enthusiasts who are collecting, selling, and buying vinyl. I want to hear the stories of where they were and what they were doing while they amassed their vinyl collections. My passion is vinyl records. It’s not a hobby or a second job, I live it day in and day out.

By recycling Vinyl Records they will ultimately end up in the hands of vinyl lovers who will enjoy them all over again.

When I buy collections, I really want them to end up in the hands of vinyl lovers around the world so they can be enjoyed by others all over again.
