Massive collection just bought.

Last week we bought a great collection from an old customer/friend of us. 4500 albums (no 45's or 12's unfortunaly) primarly soul, funk, rare grooves, jazz (late 60's and 70's jazz). Lots of European jazz and groove oriented records like many titles on Horo, Fontana, Saba, MPS, JAPO, ECM, Love plus US labels like Black Jazz, Strata-East, Nimbus, Muse which in some parts are more or less complete catalogues. There's not a lot of 50's jazz but there's some fine originals on Blue Note and Prestige. It's not the biggest collection we have bought but maybe the best. There are many records that we haven't had for ten years or more plus many new obscure records that we never have had before.

As our backroom in the store already before these 4500 records were crammed with thousands of records that's in que for us to stock at the website, we now have rented a lockup to have enough space to move in the office. Some, but far from all, of the more exclusive records will be added to our next

"Big Update 8 June"

We will then stock between 400-700 records depending how much we get done until then. It will be great stuff on all sections (apart from house/nu jazz I'm afraid) but maybe strongest on soul and funk albums and European jazz. As I think with all our "Big Updates" it's very exciting for us to be able to offer that many rare, indemand records at the same time. Please note that this "Big update" is done on a Wednesday and that you have to visit the website to see the added records (unlike our popular weekly mails when we mail our customers what records that's added).

To be notified about the "Big Update" sign up here unless you already are included in the mailinglist.

Big update + weekly mails.

You can also be notified immediatly when a record is for sale if you add that record as a want via the website. I'm afraid we can't service wantlists the old school way via mail as we simply have no time over. There's no buying obligations but the record will not be reserved for you, so you still have to order it via the shopping cart if you want it.

Automated wantlist

This is the best way to be notified when an indemand  record is for sale as many records sell out fast and some often sells within minutes to those that have left wants via the website.

For the first time we will also be open the whole summer during normal opening days.

As always quality trades and collections bought.

Take care, Lars & crew.

  2. Hi! Thanks for your question. No it's not Mats records. This collection is not from Sweden. We have however bought many records from Mats the last 3-4 years divived into smaller parts and that was great too. Thanks, Lars
