Great start to the year this year - we bought some brilliant collections! 

Lets have a look!

1) Toru bought an absolutely brilliant Jazz collection. There are around 1000 LPs (and some EPs). They are heavy on the Blue Notes, and sometimes on the far out Free side of Jazz. There are a few holy grails in there (we already put out a copy of Amancio D'Silva "Integration" from this collection) and lots of rare first pressings. Titles from artists like John Coltrane, Archie Shepp, Miles Davis, Clifford Jordan, Bobby Hutcherson, Pharoah Sanders, McCoy Tyner, Art Blakey, Gary Bartz, Stan Tracey, Duke Ellington, Frank Lowe, Cecil Taylor, Alice Coltrane, Horace Silver, Wayne Shorter, Ike Quebec, Eric Dolphy, Thelonious Monk, Lee Morgan, Andrew Hill, Joe Henderson, Tubby Hayes, Larry Young, Don Cherry, Chet Baker, Sonny Rollins, Donald Byrd, Grant Green, Albert Ayler, Bill Evans, John Surman etc. It'll take us some time to get these all out but they are selling super fast!

2) Scott bought another brilliant Hip Hop collection. Just under a thousand LPs (and a few 12"s). All in absolutely brilliant condition - titles from Dr Dre, Snoop Dogg, Wu Tang Clan, Nas, Pete Rock & CL Smooth, Above The Law, Stormzy, Missy Elliott, Fat Joe, The Pharcyde, Busta Rhymes, KRS One, Ice Cube, Bone Thugs & Harmony, Mac Miller, Method Man, Diaomnd D, Three Six Mafia, 2Pac, 50 Cent, Tim Dog, Gravediggaz, Gang Starr, Comptons Most Wanted etc. We've got a lot of Hip Hop in at the moment but everytime it goes out it sells pretty much on the day!
