I have recently purchased a rather large record collection of various USA & Import (1950's-1980's) Lp's, 7", 10", cassette & 8-Track tapes, music books & magazines from an older music industry radio person. Myself being a music fan & part-time collector over the years, I appreciate the value of some of these items to music fans & collectors worldwide. Obviously I cannot keep everything and so have recruited the services of an experienced long time record collector/dealer/ex-store-owner to help me with the grading & evaluation of these items for my Ebay store.
I have named this store HAPPY DAY RECORDS for a good reason!!
I know from some of my own purchases in the past, that records are often inaccurately graded or incompletely described regarding other defects and often poorly packaged....I aim to ensure that this NEVER happens to any customer of mine. I also know from my previous purchases, how veryhappyI was when I received a record that had been carefully packaged, shipped quickly and was in the exact condition described. So it is my absolute sincere aim to provide that sameHappyfeeling to each & every customer of my store through excellent service.
Each item listed will be accurately graded so you'll know exactly what you're getting. Of course I am always looking to improve the quality of service and so would appreciate any suggestions or comments from you, a valued customer.
I guarantee every item to be as listed & described. If an error is made in any way (inaccurate grading or description or delayed shipping or anything else), I will make it right either by fully refunding all costs involved (including your shipping charges), or adjusting the selling price to your satisfaction & agreement.I will absolutely not overcharge on shipping fees.All and any questions will be answered as soon as possible, I aim to have perfect service & perfect communication:))
Double LPs, box sets, etc. will have appropriate additional shipping costs.

Unless shown otherwise, every record is an original issue for the label and catalog number given. Here is a brief explanation of my grading system.
Iuse a modification of the Goldmine Magazine standard grading system. That means that there's a grade between NM and VG+ = EX.
Imay also,in some cases, add an extra + or extra - to a grade ifI feel it necessary.
EX Has a minor flaw (s) not easily visible
VG+ Has a small visible flaw.
VG Has multiple small flaws.
VG- some serious flaws.
All flaws, such as ringwear, creasing, stickers, tears, handwriting, sticker removal damage, punch holes, saw-cuts etc, will be noted in the description part of the listing.
FACTORY SEALEDBrand new, never opened, perfect in every way.
NM (near mint) Opened, may be played or unplayed, no visible flaws.
EX (Excellent) Played, but sparingly, vinyl is still very shiny,may have a few sleeve scuffs.
VG+ (Very Good +) Played, but well taken care of, may have light scuff marks,light hairline scratches. Still shiny.
VG (Very Good) Very played, will have minor scratches which will probably be audible.
VG- (Very Good -) Played a LOT. Will have more than minor scratches, but will play through. Only listed if very rare. (Garage sale record)
G (Good) Will play through but with substantial deterioration of the sound. We won't waste your time by listing any UNLESS, the record is extremely rare.
You, being a collector are surely aware that in some cases, old thick vinyl can appear visually scratched up, but sound a lot better than it looks when played ....I will make a note of this in the description if it occurs.
Labels will not be graded, but defects like handwriting, sticker damage etc will be noted in description.
Details of various special features and/or all defects will be accurately described in the "DESCRIPTION" section for each listing.
Please understand that it is not humanly possible to play-grade hundreds of items at a time. Unless otherwise noted, all records are GRADED VISUALLY, however, if you request it, I will gladly have the record PLAY GRADED.
