ORIGINAL UK 7" RECORD COMPANY SLEEVES

No records sold on this web site are sent out with reproduction** sleeves.  90% of the singles listed that are priced 4 and up are housed in the original record company sleeve.  Prior to the Punk era, very few UK issues included a picture sleeve. Also, note that due to the UK's instability and the coal miner's strikes, during the early to mid-70's, EMI employed plain white sleeves.

You may purchase original 7" slip-sleeves on their own, but as per LP inner sleeves, the price for each will be more if not ordering records listed on this site at the same time. It is time consuming to provide the correct inners.

This service can be time consuming. Thus, only a firm sale will be entertained. You will be quoted a total that is to be paid, and when payment has been received, only then will the order be processed.

RECORD CLEANING

Record cleaning cloths, fibre tip brushes, sprays, etc. What are you using?

These aforementioned methods of what you think is cleaning your vinyl, can actually do more harm than good!  What happens, is that some of the light surface dust will be removed, the remaining dirt being spread out, and pushed down into the groove. After cleaning a record, if you inspect the vinyl close up with a good eye glass, you cannot fail to perceive the evidence!

Having personally washed several thousand records over the years, using warm water and washing-up liquid (which is a far more effective process to clean vinyl than as above), I have established that the following to be conclusive for determining the most effective way of cleaning collectible vinyl records. 

One of those products that once obtained, the thinking is why did not have 20 years ago!

A strong vacuum, ensures that all excess particles are removed! Isopropyl  Alcohol mixed with
35% purified water is used as the cleaning agent.

Dirt trapped on your records will impair the sound quality, which, in turn, can eventually result in groove damage, not to mention knackering the stylus!  Suction is the only proven positive method for record cleaning that will guarantee to remove the visible dirt, and also grime that you cannot see!

In most cases, it will be noticeable that after having the record cleaned by this method, the sound reproduction on playing, will have been improved somewhat.  Obviously, the better the  hi-fi equipment,  the greater the end results!    Please note that  each record is cleaned  to the highest possible standards that can be attained.

Any single, EP, or LP ordered, that is priced at 15 and up, will be cleaned by the above process prior to dispatch.  EP records are stored in paper sleeves, as standard practice. Following the cleaning of an LP, the vinyl is housed in a new white paper sleeve. The album's original inner sleeve is placed back inside the jacket.

The argument of which make / brand of electric record cleaner is not the issue. Most, if not all,
work on the same principle. That is, having a vacuum to suck out the dirt. So it is down to
trusting the individual who is conducting the cleaning in how your records are 'handled'!
* A cotton overall with no buttons or zip is worn.
* No jewellery worn
* Fingernails trimmed.
* Care not to create additional spindle traces on the labels.
* Record is dry, so does not 'stick' within the new polythene inner.
* If the record is not quite 'clean', will be done again.
* You receive back the same record and cover as given (an important criteria!)

* If any of the records are deemed as filthy, then they will have
  to be washed prior to using the machine. This service costs
  an additional 30p per LP; 15p per 7"


Costs for Cleaning Vinyl Records on the Machine

10" + 12" LPs
1 ~ 19 discs @ 2 each   *   20+ @ 1.60p each   *   40+ @ 1.40p each

VALUATIONS

It has become apparent that true collectable vinyl in best condition are now elusive. Therefore, the actual cost to replace stolen or destroyed precious records can be expensive, bearing in mind that in many cases, it will be more than a "listed" price in a record collector's guide.  Insurance is not a problem, so long as you ensure that the company that you wish to deal provides the correct type of cover.

An independent and honest valuation service can be provided for such. The most economical way for the client, is to compile a list in alphabetical order, of each record in their collection, grading the sleeve/ record. Then, when the collection is viewed by a reputable dealer, that the insurance company deems suitable, a swift appraisal can be assessed, and the final assessment put in writing. 

So, first contact an apt insurance company, then approach a record shop or dealer within your area.  Ensure that their knowledge is within with  the scope of your collection.

f you have a collection of records, pop memorabilia, or cult television toys pre-dating 1975, that you wish to insure, and reside within Devon, then you are welcome to contact to arrange for a professional valuation.
