    Some of that bloke's Discogs prices are laughable:

    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.

      Before record store day a couple of years back that same seller was asking his followers via Twitter which records he should buy to sell on at the most profit.

        Thanks for posting that Big Youth!

        My thoughts are that a record shop owner or dealer would see/pass on such a collection regularly, it's not unusual...
        One man's history of dance music is another man's extremely heavy vinyl albatross...but the clip is good promotion for him and his business...

        Aye, that vg Mingus lp he has for sale is a bit pricey...

          £10,000 for 24,000 records could be a good deal if it's all original US small label House / hip hop etc.
          If its a load of uk De-construction/ Positiva type gear / it could be a struggle just getting the money back.
          I worked for a guy who bought 40,000 pieces in one hit back in the 90s (not dance records tho). Incrdedible going thru that amount.
          And back-breaking moving them.

            A lot of 'dance' music from that era is pretty much worthless. If it has some white label hardcore/jungle they can go for good money though.

              I agree with digger one mans history of dance is another mans history of pants. Outside of crazy Aphex twin prices a lot of good albums from that period are surprisingly cheap. I have no idea of white label prices wish I knew more as I come across them everywhere. Interesting that there is a market for hardcore though are we talking hard core of the happy, bonkers, pitched up vocal 200pm variety?

                No, we're talking what is broadly known as oldskool breakbeat hardcore, 1990-1993, pre-happy chipmunk silliness. Most aren't worth a great deal yet, but the small press white labels can go for a fair bit, especially the darker hardcore going into early jungle ones from 1992/93. Unfortunately they are often only identifiable by their matrix numbers and then reference to Discogs where most are in the data base. I'm not a big 'dance' fan by any means, but releases from this era often have great trippy experimental music.

                    Yes, the UKs answer to Techno/ Acid House when the rave scene and LSD/E use really exploded. By 1991/2 there was a punk like DIY esthetic, with many homemade white label 4 track EPs produced in small quabtities and distributed quickly. The pace of change at the time was pretty rapid, so the worthwhile era in my opinion ended some time in 1993, when happy hardcore and drum and bass really took over and breakbeats went out of favour, except for the ubiquitous Amen with D&B. Everything started to sound pretty much the same from that point on in my opinion within the narrow dance genre definitions that developed.
