RECORD GRADING


GRADING = COVER or PICTURE SLEEVE / RECORD

BECAUSE IT'S THE FIRST THING YOU SEE.
* * THE RECORD IS GRADED SECOND ,
BECAUSE IT'S THE SECOND THING YOU SEE.

* * ALL RECORDS ARE 1ST PRESS ORIGINAL UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE.
* * I`M VERY GOOD ABOUT KNOWING THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN :
A 1ST PRESS , 2ND PRESS , OR A REISSUE ( RE ).
I HAVE AN EXCELLENT BOOK TITLED : "THE RECORD LABEL GUIDE" , THAT I PURCHASED IN 1992.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTONS ABOUT A CERTAIN RECORD , PLEASE E-MAIL ME.

VG = VERY GOOD , THIS IS A COVER or PICTURE SLEEVE THAT HAS LOTS OF PROBLEMS. STRICKLY A FILLER COPY UNTILL YOU CAN FIND A NICER ONE.

ABOUT ME


I LIKED MUSIC AT A VERY YOUNG AGE , AND WOULD LISTEN TO MY LITTLE TRANSISTOR RADIO ALL THE TIME. THEN FOR MY 9TH BIRTHDAY IN 1963 MY PARENTS BOUGHT ME MY FIRST RECORD PLAYER. IT WAS A SMALL PORTABLE. MY VERY FIRST RECORD I EVER BOUGHT WITH MY ALLOUNCE WAS THE BEACH BOYS "I GET AROUND". AND SO THAT WAS THE BEGINNING FOR ME BECOMING A "VINYLJUNKIE". I LOVE COLLECTING RECORDS AND I`M STILL COLLECTING THEM TODAY. AND NOW , I AM ALSO SELLING RECORDS.

LIKE MOST PEOPLE , I HAVE A REGULAR DAY JOB. BUYING AND SELLING RECORDS IS FOR NOW , STILL JUST A HOBBY. WHEN I GET OFF WORK ALMOST ALL OF MY FREE TIME IS SPENT PLAYING MY RECORDS AND TRAVELING LOOKING FOR MORE RECORDS. THAT'S WHY I CALL MYSELF A "VINYLJUNKIE".

SOMETIME DURING THE MID 80'S I DECIDED TO BECOME A SELLER OF RECORDS ALSO. WHILE OUT SEARCHING FOR MORE RECORDS ( WENT TO MY FIRST RECORD CONVENTION IN 1983 ) TO FILL THE VOIDS IN MY COLLECTION , I WAS COMING ACROSS OTHER NICE RECORDS THAT I ALREADY OWNED , AND THE PRICE WAS RIGHT , SO THEN I STARTED TO BUY THEM ALSO. IT TOOK ME A LONG TIME BEFORE I FELT I HAD ENOUGH RECORDS TO BECOME A "SELLER". SO SOMETIME AROUND THE EARLY TO MID 90'S I STARTED SETTING UP AT RECORD CONVENTIONS AND DOING MAIL ORDER CATALOGS. I LOVE GOING TO THE RECORDS CONVENTIONS , BUT I FOUND OUT IT'S A LOT OF WORK HAULING THE RECORDS TO AND FROM THE SHOWS. ALSO , I USED TO SEND OUT OVER 300 MAIL ORDER LISTS AND AFTER PAYING FOR PRINTING AND POSTAGE , IT GOT TO BE VERY EXPENSIVE. SO WHEN COMPUTERS STARTED APPEARING IN MOST HOUSEHOLDS , JUST LIKE TV'S BACK IN THE DAY , IT SEEMS THAT THE BEST WAY TO REACH OUT TO LOTS OF PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD , AND NOT LUGGING ALL MY RECORDS TO AND FROM RECORD SHOWS AND PAYING LOTS OF MONEY TO PAY FOR PRINTING CATALOGS , IS BY HAVING A WEB SITE. AND SO HERE YOU HAVE MY WEB SITE : WWW.WAYKOOLRECORDS.COM

NOW , I LIKE THE RECORDS IN MY COLLECTION TO BE IN VERY NICE CONDITION. SO I DECIDED THAT I WAS ONLY GOING TO SELL RECORDS THAT ARE IN SIMULAR CONDITION. I ONLY COLLECT M- OR EX CONDITION RECORDS. ONCE IN A WHILE I`LL COLLECT A VG+ RECORD , BUT ONLY IF IT`S A VERY RARE RECORD. SO I DECIEDED TO ONLY SELL RECORDS THE SAME WAY I LIKE TO COLLECT THEM , IN NICE CONDITION. SO , IF YOU`RE LOOKING FOR CHEAP FLEA MARKET , GARAGE SALE JUNK TYPE RECORDS. YOU CAN SAVE YOURSELF SOME TIME AND SKIP MY WEB SITE AND GO WEB SURFING SOMEWHERE ELSE. SORRY , BUT NO JUNK RECORDS ALLOWED HERE !

I'M STILL LOOKING TO ADD LOTS OF WAYKOOL RECORDS TO MY COLLECTION. I`M ALSO BUYING RECORDS FOR RE-SALE AND DOING TRADES. IF YOU THINK YOU HAVE SOME RECORDS I MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN , PLEASE SEE THE : BUY / TRADE INFO SECTION.

I WANT TO THANK YOU FOR VISITING MY WEB SITE , AND I HOPE YOU FIND SOMETHING THAT YOUR LOOKING FOR. ALL MY RECORDS HAVE A 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE , ( EXCEPT SEALED LP`S ). IF YOUR UNHAPPY , I `M UNHAPPY. AND IF YOU HAVE AND COMMENTS OR SUGGESTIONS , PLEASE SEND ME AN E-MAIL.

AFTER I AM SATISFIED WITH THE RECORD ( S ) I HAVE RECEIVED , I WILL THEN SEND OUT THE TRADE RECORD ( S ) TO YOU.
