I combine shipping costs on multiple purchases. You will be charged the actual postage fee it costs me to send your things. If it is possible, I will combine your purchases into a single package and charge for that. However, with heavier items being posted outside the UK, this may not be possible because Royal Mail only carries a maximum of 2 Kilos. In this case I will divide your purchases up into lots weighing 2 kilos or less. Please bear in mind that I like to package items securely so they arrive safe at the other end, therefore this will add quite a bit to the weight on delicate items.

Due to my job requiring odd hours of working and sometimes a few days away from home, it will sometimes, but not always, be a few days before I can post your item. This is reflected in the Expected Delivery Date you see when buying. If you need something urgently, it is worth contacting me to see if I can give it priority.

Feedback other than positive harms business. Please contact me before leaving feedback, if there is something not right with your purchase. I do my best to describe things accurately, but sometimes there may be issues I am not aware of, I can't be an expert on everything! I am willing to sort out any issue that is due to a mistake of mine. I aim to have only satisfied customers, as I treasure the near 100% feedback that I have. These make it viable to keep my prices down. Many thanks

I don't have access to a 78 rpm turntable so cannot audio test this, all grading will have to be visual. As with all records, it is very difficult to photograph the state of the surface. I would grade this record VG, with some visible scratches and scuffs which look likely to produce pops perhaps but none look major enough to cause a skip, although obviously no way of telling without playing it. The label is in great shape with just a relatively few spindle marks. Matrix numbers 89280-1 and 89283-1. As far as I can make out, this record should be extremely rare - I have just submitted it to Discogs.
