This record is from a very large collection of rare and valuable classical records that I will be selling over time. Please make sure to check back often, as new items will be posted on a regular basis.
There are a large number of the most sought-after records, including many, many Decca SXL, Columbia SAX, EMI ASD, RCA SB & LSC, Mercury SR & AMS, as well as chamber music and solo recital albums on Westminster and other labels with the Barylli Quartet, Pierre Fournier, Leonid Kogan, etc.
Also a large number of both jazz and classical audiophile reissues, most still factory sealed.
These records are being sold on behalf of Record and TapeXchange.

Records are graded visually unless stated otherwise in the listing. Please contact me before bidding if you have any questions. Questions asked within 12 hours of auction close may not get answered, but I will try to do so. Your satisfaction is my first concern. Please see my feedback.
If you receive your order and you have any problem or concern, please contact me first, before leaving any low seller rating or negative feedback comments.
Please do not open an eBay return before contacting me. Most concerns can be worked out much more quickly this way.
I will work with you to make things right, if you give me the chance to do so.
Thank you for your cooperation.
IF YOU ARE IN THE USA AND DESIRE MEDIA MAIL, YOU MAY PAY IMMEDIATELY,
ALL OTHERS, PLEASE WAIT FOR MY INVOICE.
ALL ITEMS MUST BE PAID FOR WITHIN 7 DAYS.
Once paid for, I am happy to hold international shipments for up to 30 days, so as to combine shipping and save you money.
Due to eBay regulations, I cannot hold shipments to the US. Once they are paid for, they must be shipped immediately.
I believe that this is a very reasonable policy, and appreciate your understanding. If you need to make other arrangements, please contact me before bidding. I will work with you to make a successful transaction.
Thank you for your cooperation.
The rates quoted are still below my actual shipping cost.
All shipping is by USPS. I use online shipping to give you the best possible price on shipping. It also enables me to supply you with a tracking number for all shipments.
Shipping for the first disc in the US by Media Mail $3.00. Additional discs are free of charge. Priority Mail is available.
International customers, please wait for my invoice before you pay. USPS First Class Mail rates are only for packages under 4 pounds (usually from 4 to 6 single discs). Any package over 4 pounds must be sent by Priority Mail.
If you pay before receiving my invoice, you may lose any shipping discounts that you might be entitled to. The new USPS postal rates vary more from country to country, so it is not possible to estimate costs exactly. You will pay only the postage, no extra charge for materials or handling.
SPECIAL OFFER FOR US CUSTOMERS ONLY: ANY PURCHASE TOTALING $50 OR MORE WILL BE SHIPPED FREE BY MEDIA MAIL.
SHIPPING DISCOUNTS FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS:
Purchase $100 or more: 25% discount on shipping cost
Purchase $250 or more: 50% discount on shipping cost
Purchase $500 or more: Free worldwide shipping (up to $50)
==INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS PLEASE READ==
Some very important items:
1. The sale price will be the declared value on your customs form. I will not classify your package as a gift or otherwise falsify customs documents on your shipments. This is a federal crime in the US and is illegal in every country. Any import fees, taxes or duties are the responsibility of the buyer.
2. Any purchase totaling $50 or more (not including shipping) must be insured. This cost will be included on your invoice. If you do not choose insurance on an order of less than $50, I take no responsibility if your shipment is lost or damaged.
3. Please understand that shipping times for international packages (especially First Class Mail packages) are unpredictable and can vary from a few days to weeks or more. I have no control over this. Priority Mail is much more dependable and is highly recommended for more valuable items.
