        I've been saving them for years, Matt. Then a good friend of mine gave me his spare sleeves, must have been about 100! Anytime I see a lonely sleeve or
        vinyl in a shop or on a stall I always enquire as to the price....most of the time they just give 'em away. Eventually you get a match and it makes it all worthwhile esp. if it's like my most recent matchmaker completion: A near mint 'U Brown Repatriation' a superb reggae/roots album and very expensive normally but I prob paid about £1 each for the individual parts. It's like a really long drawn out game of happy families but worth the wait. I'm about to draw up list number 3 very soon! Any other requests?

          Incredible String Band. Liquid Acrobat.
          Are you looking for the vinyls? .....only I need the cover to this ISB classic.

          I too have about 100 recordless sleeves ...and many more sleeveless records. Will post my spares later this week - there may be something of interest...

                            On another note, does anyone have a spare Shuggie Otis - Inspiration Information sleeve?!

                            • Yeah man, we've been in touch. He will only trade sleeve for sleeve though & I don't need any of his sleeves so a bit of a shame as you put the two
                              together and that's one valuable collectors item!

                                I sent my mono SF Sorrow sleeve to the dude after we'd been in touch and the chap never even let me know if it arrived or if it was/wasn't any good!!!!

                                Bit reticent to do this again after that, like you say the two together makes it quite a valuable item.
