  • comedy records

    Hello all,

    I have decided to sell my collection of comedy and oddball 45 rpm single records. I will be selling around 250-260 of them.. and am preparing a list for sale.

    If anyone is interested in this fairly large collection including some rarities and valuable tracks, please send an email to me.

    Later this year, when the singles are sold, the LP's will be sold as well.

    I will be keeping all postal costs down to an absolute minimum, so please do not worry on that score.

        Hello Mags,

        As I am not at home atm (am at the library), and had to scramble back to double check.. I have 21 Barron Knights singles...

        The bad news is that the "Jo-Anne" single has already been sold..(along with 9 Benny Hill singles, I might add!...sorry!)

        So I will list them and a few others here..

        Please be a little patient.. more posts to follow...
