Sell Us Your Vinyl Record Collection

We buy vinyl records and record collections

I am looking for record collections to purchase. Turntabling as a record selling site has been dormant for some time due to a variety of reasons, but now that we are back online our record buying activities are also alive and kicking. I buy record collections and would be happy to view any collection that has a decent amount of the right genres.

You can contact me to discuss your record collection initially via e-mail at jwallace@turntabling.net Please include a description of the types of vinyl in your collection, the estimated condition of the records, approximately how many you have and please enclose images where possible of the collection as a whole plus any individual items you may want to let me know about.

WHAT I BUY

I am primarily interested in the following genres:

Soundtracks, especially Ennio Morricone, or any of the 60s/70s Italian soundtrack artists such as Riz Ortolani, Stelvio Cipriani, Roberto Donati, Goblin, Nico Fidenco, etc.

Post-Punk and New Wave including groups like Magazine, Devo, Slow Children, Hawaiian Pups, The Units, Single Bullet Theory, The Suburban Lawns, Adam Ant, anything that falls into this category is always worth a look. Strange, obscure, underappreciated, all welcome.

Gothic/Industrial groups like Sisters of Mercy, Xymox, Legendary Pink Dots, Skinny Puppy, BiGod 20, industrial compilations, Coil, Severed Heads, Front 242, Cure, Banshees, KMFDM, etc. Any collections with a good amount of records like these will get my full attention. Swans, Neubauten, Killing Joke, Chris Connelly, Ministry, PTP, RevCo, etc.

Reggae and Dub but ESPECIALLY dub LPs. The more far out the better. Scientist, Super Ape, Lee Scratch Perry, dub compilations, anything with Adrian Sherwood or Twilight Circus on it, anything from Black Ark studios,  Blood and Fire, On-U Sound, e4tc.

60s/70s Psych and especially garage, teacup psychedelia, early brit psych, etc.

Noise and Experimental: I am looking for a variety of weirdness, noise, experimentation, odd pressings, you name it. The weirder or more unusual the better. Japanese noise especially welcome. Want to get rid of those GeroGeriGeGeGe and Boredoms releases? Getting tired of UFO Or Die and Extreme Noise Terror releases lying around your home? Merzbow annoying your cats? I buy these and much more.

Religious Records of all kinds, the stranger and more left of center, occult-oriented, intolerant/bigoted the better. Especially interested in 80s CCM albums such as those released on Frontline, What?, Sparrow, etc. If you have televangelist records please get in touch. If you have Daniel Amos records, Crumbacher, Edin Adahl, Scatered Few, etc…get in touch.

Bizarre Spoken Word Records including any sex-related, adults only or otherwise naughty albums. Instructional LPs are also great, but the stranger the better. I also buy literature-based spoken word records such as the celebrity reads albums like Roddy McDowall reading HP Lovecraft, Sir Alec Guinness reading A Modest Proposal, sci fi authors reading their own work, etc.

I also buy unusual albums of any type–outsider records, private press LPs, etc.

When purchasing record collections, I am quick to tell people what I DO NOT BUY:

Show tunes. Sorry,  no Broadway, no musicals.

Classic Rock. Not interested in Journey, Kiss, AC/DC, or any of the other groups considered classic rock or Album Oriented Rock. There may be ONE OR TWO exceptions, but not many.

Country. Nuff said.

Jazz. In my experience, the jazz I am interested in (Miles Davis, Coltrane, genres like Soul Jazz music, BeBop, etc) are not the titles offered in collections made available for sale. I’m not buying collections of standard jazz groups or soloists. Avant garde jazz, unusual, funky, left-of-center jazz is another story, so if you have Sun Ra, Ornette Coleman, things of that nature, do let me know. THOSE things I AM interested in.

Singer/Songwriters. Sorry, but we have no demand for Carly Simon, Joan Baez, Carole King, Dionne Warwick, etc. No James Taylor, Jim Croche, etc.

If you have records to sell, please get in touch with Turntabling via my email address: jwallace@turntabling.net and be sure to include your contact information, general location, and how many LPs you have for sale. Thank you very much for your interest.

We are buying record collections of all sizes

I Buy Record Collections!

I buy record collectionsI am very interested in people who want to sell their record collections. I am looking for large and small quantities of odd, unusual, and just plain awesome records in good condition.

I have purchased collections in the past that consist of soundtracks, goth and industrial, 80s new wave, spoken word, punk and post-punk, psychedelia, and that strange creature from the 80s and 90s and beyond known as Christian Indie music, CCM, etc.

I also am interested in purchasing “stag” and “adults-only” vinyl records as I’m assembling a large collection of them for an art show I plan on for Fall 2014. This could include anything on Laff Records or any of the other low-to-no-budget record labels pressing those titles and the ones that used to be for sale under the counter at truck stops and other places.

There are also a large number of genres I have no interest in–I am not purchasing Broadway shows, musicals, or the soundtracks to musical films. I’m not interested in Jazz collections, Classic Rock, etc.

But if you have weird records, goth/industrial/electronic music, soundtracks, and all the above mentioned at the top of this article, do get in touch with me via orders@turntabling.net.

 

New Vinyl LPs at Turntabling

Turntabling has some awesome new additions for sale including a metric TON of Italian soundtracks on vinyl, plus some collections of soundtrack sounds like the Piomobo Rovente LP collection pictured here.

Piomobo Rovente, released on Plastic Records, is crammed full of essential sounds by Francesco de Masi, Pulsar, and Guido E Maurizio De Angelis. This vinyl record has names longtime Italian soundtrack lovers will be pleased with–newcomers to this genre should definitely get to know the composers represented on this record. See below for some YouTube clips from this LP you won’t want to miss.

Piomobo Rovente has cuts from a variety of Italian police thrillers including Napoli Spara, two from La Polizia Incrimina, La Legge Assolve, three from Roma Violenta, quite a few from La Macchina Della Violenza, and one track each from Milano Violenta, Roma A Mano Armata, and La Poliziotta Fa Carriera.

You can buy Piomobo Rovente from Turntabling--first come, first served!

Don’t miss it, it likely won’t be around long. Plastic Records is another one of those Italian labels we like to grab whenever we can find their material. They’re just as awesome as Right Tempo/Easy Tempo, Dagored and Cinevox as far as Turntabling is concerned.

This is just one of the rare, cool, hard-to-find, and just plain awesome records we’ve found while scouring the earth for the right kinds of records. Other recent additions for sale include the awesome reissue of Marshall McLuhan’s The Medium is the Massage LP by Five Day Weekend Records.

Five Day Weekend did us ALL a favor by reissuing this LP in all its dated, 60s glory. Make no mistake, “dated” in this context is TOTALLY awesome. There’s nothing like some of these crazy 60s-era sonic experiments, and I highly recommend picking this up if you’re a fan of stuff like the Modcinema.com DVDs Colorspace Volume One, Colorshopping, etc.

Released in 1968, you can get a fascinating look at what media theorists and manipulators were thinking about mass media way back then. Compare it to today’s musings about social media, Google, and other issues and you’ll draw some very interesting parallels.

This was quite a rarity in its original form–it did make it to CD but the real way to experience this is on that turntable rotating at 33 1/3 per minute. You can buy The Medium Is the Massage by Marshall McLuhan on a first-come, first served basis at Turntabling. When it’s gone…

Also just in, the Ennio Morricone soundtrack LP for Le Foto Proibite Di Una Signora Per Bene (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) issued on Dagored, plus a CD copy of the Nico Fidenco soundtrack for Blue Jeans.

Turntabling has gotten a fair amount of CDs in stock over the last few weeks–are you interested in Italian soundtrack music on CD? Eurohorror? Crime and thriller soundtrack sounds? If so, you’ll want to check out the compilation CD Roma Violenta (La Cinevox Si Incazza) or Tecnica Di Un Omicidio / Quella Carogna Dell’Ispettore Sterling (Colonne Sonore Originali / Edizione Speciale) by Robby Poitevin.

There’s more–SO much more–at the Turntabling Discogs shop on vinyl and on compact discs.

Have a look and don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions. We’re happy to help! Also, don’t forget that Turntabling buys record collections–if you want to sell us yours, get in touch with us via e-mail: jwallace242 at gmail. We buy soundtracks, horror film-related vinyl, electronic music, goth and industrial sounds, post-punk and punk. We DO NOT BUY show tunes, Broadway, classical, hip hop made after 1992, 80s and 90s metal or country.

We will travel to review collections under the right circumstances–we DO buy ENTIRE COLLECTIONS when warranted, but we are also willing to make smaller offers on portions of a collection if you prefer.

Get in touch to learn more about our buying policies and current needs and thank you very much for your interest.

I Buy Record Collections: Chicago Industrial Music, 90s Electronica, Italian Soundtracks, Lounge, Bizarre LPs and Oddities

Turntabling has many purposes. One of them is to scour the earth to find and offer you the most interesting and hard-to-find titles in selected genres including soundtracks, goth, industrial, post-punk, and many other genres. Another is to archive the strangest and most unusual vinyl on the planet–I have a special love for weird, unusual, and WTF vinyl records.

To do both of these at once, I find myself in the position of having to buy record collections–a lot of people don’t want to part with SOME of their records, just ALL of them for whatever reason. And I am VERY happy to help. I gladly accept donations of record collections but am also willing to make an offer of a group of titles.

If you have a vinyl record collection to sell, do get in touch with me at jwallace242 at gmail and let me know the size of the collection, a list of titles or sample list of titles, their approximate condition and any other information I can use to get started.

I am actively looking for record collections that contain titles in the goth, industrial, post-punk, soundtrack, and spoken word genres. I am also interested in a limited number of unusual jazz albums by artists like Sun Ra. Also, Stockhausen, John Cage, and other innovators and pioneers are most welcome.

For every want list, there’s also a DO NOT WANT list. My own personal do not want list includes classic rock, classical, country, show tunes/Broadway musicals or the majority of Jazz records with exceptions made for Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and other innovators. Typical jazz LPs fall outside my curation and collection interests.

But if you have a collection of Skinny Puppy, Sisters Of Mercy, Thrill Kill Kult and other industrial vinyl you want to get rid of, Drop me a line. The same goes for Alien Sex Fiend, Gang of Four, or most other post-punk luminaries and unknowns. I am particularly interested in unknown and underrated bands in the New Wave, goth and industrial genres, etc. Some of the most amazing records are not necessarily by the big names in these genres, but rather the unknowns and under-rateds.

I buy vinyl collections!

In Search of Italian Library and Soundtrack Vinyl

Turntabling seeks vinyl at all times, but right now we are especially interested in purchasing large numbers of Italian library and soundtrack sounds–the bigger the collection, the better. We are also interested in individual titles, such as the vinyl edition of Barry 7’s Connectors pictured here (Volumes One AND Two).

If you have library music and soundtrack vinyl to sell, please get in touch as we’d be happy to discuss your collection. Turntabling is NOT interested in Broadway/Show Tunes, Classic Rock, Hip Hop made after 1992 or Country collections…thanks for your interest but we aren’t buying any of those genres.

If you have vinyl to sell, please feel free to send an e-mail with as much detail as possible to jwallace242(at)gmail.com.

Turntabling Wants To Buy Your Record Collection

I do buy record collections and you can contact me about selling your vinyl at jwallace@turntabling.net. What I am looking for: post-punk, soundtrack LPs, new wave, unusual records of any kind, spoken word, experimental, ambient, electronic, lounge, and especially horror and science fiction related vinyl. What I am NOT looking for and will NOT buy for any reason: Broadway and show tunes records, country, hip hop made before 1993, and especially classic rock albums. No. Don’t even bother with these titles, please!

Here are some of the vinyl records I am currently looking for specifically, but please don’t hesitate to get in touch about any of the records you’d like to get rid of!

Vinyl For Sale: Fitzcarraldo, Legendary Pink Dots, Maniac Cop Soundtrack Vinyl

The rare, cool, hard-to-find and unusual vinyl is starting to pile up again in the Turntabling Collection for sale on Discogs.com.

There’s some classic Italian soundtrack sounds on the fabulous Easy Tempo label, some really awesome Legendary Pink Dots LPs, the soundtrack to Fitzcarraldo featuring the always-amazing Popol Vuh, plus a very rare SEALED version of the Maniac Cop soundtrack.

These records are for sale to raise funds to continue the mission of Turntabling to buy and archive rare and unusual vinyl from around the globe. Turntabling is assembling a vinyl archive that I’m hoping will find a home in a public space that will serve as a vinyl museum of sorts.

That’s one reason why I am in search of vinyl collections to purchase, but anyone who wants to donate a collection or portions of their collection to the cause, please get in touch via e-mail: jwallace@turntabling.net.

Please keep in mind when selling or donating vinyl that the Turntabling Collection needs both items for the archive and titles to sell for fundraising purposes. But this endeavor is definitely a worthy cause and I’ll have more news about the archive, places where you can browse the sale portion of the collection and much more.

If you have vinyl records you want to sell or donate, please get in touch at the e-mail listed above, and thank you for your continued interest and support!
