  1. No - It's me, not you! Totally confusing you with another guy who placed an order that he couldn't fulfill and meanwhile you do have your LPs. ie: ELO, Psychedelic Furs, ABC & Eagles now SOLD & THIS IS DEFINITELY CORRECT Sorry if there's been a premature obituary! And now I'm sorting this out with Mr Bifocal! What next?
  2. Correction: ELO, Psychedelica Furs & ABC available again & best wishes to Jules in difficult times.
  3. ELO, Psychedelic Furs, ABC & Eagles now SOLD

  5. Condition, covers, contents etc: 1 All the vinyl is unmarked and lustrous. 2 Mostly these LPs come in sealable / disposable poly sleeves as presented in Japanese used record stores. 3 The covers look great and all minor flaws are identified: these descriptions are precise. 5 All have inserts (lyric sheets etc) as specified. 6 The cat# is included for easy reference to discogs. P&P at cost, starting at £4.50 for an individual LP, 1st class RM. On larger orders I can advise/quote in advance. Local collection or delivery is possible too, I’m in London SW11.
