    'KIN HELL !

    I used to find some great bargains there when I was at college in the early 80s - and as late as 1992 turned up a copy of Television's brilliant 'Arrow' bootleg (filed under 'A' natch !) and the Dog That Bit People album for a quid each.

                  I imagine it will be unbelievably grueling, but there must be something decent there.

                  I'm not sure I'd spend the hours looking through 75,000 records and fighting off hordes of grippers to find out though*

                  I never found bugger all at Reddingtons in the times I went, but didn't Chris Arthur pull loads of great 7"s from there before the rest of the world caught up to his music tastes? Paul Nicholas and Spencer Mac etc etc




                  *Ironically I'll be at the Lille Braderie that weekend
                  it's OK to head out for wonderful, but on your way to wonderful, you're gonna have to pass through all right. When you get to all right,
                  take a good look around and get used to it, because that may be as far as you're gonna go.

                    Is this sale really be worth going to? An honest question as I'm contemplating it.
                    Will not all his contacts/store owners/friends have had first pick before the sale day?
                    On the day it could be chaos unless he's going to run an RSD style entrance queue by which only those at the front will get anything decent and those halfway down the queue will be looking through the dross?
                    Will you need to turn up the day before and camp out overnight to get a decent place in the queue?
                    I would guess a lot of people are going to turn up (real collectors and the ebay touts) and it could decent into chaos if not stewarded properly.

                      Isn't that the point of VG+? Picking up the undiscovered (turds) that the everyday folks leave behind?

                        It's been gone through and hawked out to a lot of dealers quite a few times in the past. In fact I know they emailed dealers about it this week. The consensus from some people I know who went through it a few years ago was that there probably was a few decent bits in there but there was that much to go through it would be like finding a needle in a haystack. A one day event packed full of fellow diggers would probably make that task extremely difficult! If you look he still lists on musicstack, might be worth looking through the listings there to see what he's selling to see if there's realistically anything that's worth your while going down to buy. If you were travelling from far away you might want to weigh up whether it would be a waste of the cost of travel to get there.

                          Many thanks, that's useful info.

                            i was at the closing down sale when the shop was in Digbeth in birmingham, everything was massivly reduced and i didnt really find much worth buying.
                            though it wasnt a pound each, it might be worth checking out. im guessing its going to be rammed.
                            im not expecting to find mint hendrix and zeppelin ogs, but should have plenty of VG+ type records

                              I think it will be great for shops & record fair dealers, probably lots of £5-£12 LP's for £1 a pop & as someone pointed out i reckon a fair amount of VG+ classics. Not so good for ebay dealers or collectors looking for rare's
