 @Vinyl Junkie - DON'T get me started on charity shops. The way they price stuff is plain idiocy... they just look up the value in a price guide and slap that price on it, regardless of the condition not taking into account the worse the quality, the lower the price should be. Also they don't bother to check record labels or catalogue numbers.

Two absurd examples as seen in the Penny Lane branch of Oxfam. The Rolling Stones' debut album. An original pressing. £100 they were asking. Two problems... the sleeve was falling apart and the vinyl inside? Looked like people had used it as a frisbee. Appalling condition. That sat on their shelf for over two years. Example two? Joe Cocker's first album. £30. Good condition, but problem here was, it was the 1970's MFP budget reissue which I've seen zillions of copies of! Did the same thing with Dusty Springfields' first album - priced the budget Contour reissue with the original Philips value. Insane, completely insane. Oxfam are renowned culprits for this... another thing they often do is stick price tags on the actual centre label as well... a great way to ruin the record if you try and remove it...

 The shop I was in had the canny policy of letting staff buy anything they wanted for half price...as long as it had been on general shop sale for at least 24 hrs !! Very clever, really...you couldn't under price something nice as it'd get snapped up by the public, and the only way of ensuring it was still there a day later was to waaay overprice it, so you'd be hard pushed to get a bargain even at half price.

Clever buggers, those chazza managers.

 I've done that as well... I systematically went through the entire stock (hundreds) pricing everything correctly, sorting into genres and by price, making sure everything was in correct sleeves etc... kept going back every week even though I didn't really have the time to spare to keep it in order. (Things do sell at proper prices as well). Went away for a couple of weeks and EVERYTHING was mixed up, new stock out was priced as a joke so i have kind of lost heart in it.

Their way of pricing is using the RRPG and listing any issue in any condition at full mint book price. This includes a 90s reissue of Led Zep I priced as if it was a turquoise original, Rolling Stones LP priced as the withdrawn mispress, Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights in plain white sleeve priced as if it was a P/S copy etc etc. Also, any picture disc or coloured vinyl MUST be worth £10+ surely? Well, no. Now this would be OK if they didn't know better but I've told them time and again... these records just sit there, never selling, and putting people off looking through the rest of the stock. It also encourages sleeve swapping and stealing. Oh well... I'm sure I'll go back to it at some point.

Oh and however tempting it might be, I've never under-priced anything to buy myself. I have however bought a couple of things others have priced too cheaply (but only if I wanted it... everything else, I put the price up - I wouldn't do it for profit).

 A few years ago when I was helping out in the basement of a Shelter shop in Brighton, a lovely EX+/EX+ copy of The La's LP came in. I priced it at what I thought was a very reasonable £15, and I took it upstairs and asked the old lady behind the counter to put it on the display rack, explaining to her a little about the bands history.

As I was heading back downstairs, a bloke walks in, sees the LP, and goes up to the little old lady and starts picking away..."Fifteen Pahhnd ?! Fer that ? Why's that fifteen pahnd ? It ain't worth a quid ! This is a charity shop...I'll give you a quid fer it...".

The little old lady let him finish, then went into a beautifully eloquent minute long description of the albums value..."Well, it's not been re-pressed on vinyl since it's release in 1991, and as the indie classic it's considered it's booked at £25 in The Guide, and what with the lead singers disappearance from the music business..."
The bloke looked at her, mumbled something, and walked out of the shop.

I was just going back up to the old lady to congratulate her on her performance, when the bloke walks back into the shop, pulls out a ten and a five, and goes "Awright then. I'll 'ave it.". Wonderful moment.

 Deepinder Cheema:
As you may have guessed, I occassionally help out in a charity shop with their media side of things. Of course the main aim is to get the maximum amount of money for the charity, without scaring the customers away that is.
It's amazing though, or perhaps not, how many people think they are at a car boot sale and want to haggle about the price and tell you "you'll never get that price for it etc. Of course depending on what side of the counter your on that day, we all like to come away thinking we've got a bargain.

The other day I saw a couple of Beatles albums in the window of a charity shop, that doesn't usually sell that many records and they were looking for £250 and £300 for them. Apparently one was original mono and the other original stereo (Hard Days Night/Revolver). From the look of the condition of the sleeves and with my x-ray vision I decided, no I don't think that's quite right. Perhaps some gullible tourist though. I think what really put me off was the incorrect spelling of Beatles on both price tags.

At the moment there's a charity shop with a couple of Stateside singles I'd like, but at £6.50 each I don't think so, but they've had them for ages and no doubt prepared to wait for that customer but then so am I prepared to wait to purchase. Might even pay as much as £3.00 each for them.

As they say, at the end of the day, a record is only worth what someone is prepared to pay for it. (My specialist subject - the bleedin' obvious)

Anyway next week must remember to check out these Decca Winston Churchill LPs. £35.00 did you say ?

 I sort of don't mind the little old ladies really, when they put huge prices on records they like such as the Winston Churchill LP on Decca (£30), scratched Beatles and Elvis EP's LPs (£15) Russ Conway etc etc. The problem is too many Record Dealers getting in with their skimming. I once had to call a halt to this Taxi Driver in St Giles Hospice as he 'helpfully' carried in a donation from a car boot, so when I saw all the orig beatles, Big Brother, Rolling Stones, Tubby Hayes he told me to piss off - I stepped in and mentioned to the shop 'that copy of Aftermath might be worth £300". I knew he did not like me when I inquired whether the Nashville Skyline he had bought was Mono or Stereo.

 That's a very good point, but remember some charity shops don't have little old ladies in them. Some may even have record collectors in them !

 Deepinder Cheema, that was a very good idea. If everyone did that, who knows what rare little treasures we might come across for 50p each!

Dr. Doom, I tend to think of a "hit" as compared with previous successes by the same singer/band. If a Beatles single only got to no. 10 it would not be considered a "hit" after all those no. 1's, would it? On the other hand, if a band or singer has released several singles that haven't even sold enough to make the top 100, then that band or singer could consider the next single to be a "hit" if it gets to no. 45. For example, the Heavy Metal Kids (some of whose records were produced by Mickie Most, as it happens) never had a chart single of any size, so if one of theirs crept in at no. 45, they could consider it a hit.

Oh, and Nick Hamlyn doesn't limit chart single references to Top 40 entries. I just had a quick glance at the book, and saw "chart single" next to Keith Relf's "Mr. Zero". That one only got to no. 50.

 I think it best to approach any Price Guide with extreme caution. I once had to buy a price guide in a Charity shop in order to remove it and to stop them and their little old ladies getting too many idea's.

 Can't explain the A-side/B-side thing but I know a lot of people class only top 40 records as 'hits'

17th Jun 2011
 Nick Hamlyn's Price Guide mentions only the B-side of this one. Normally, he inserts "chart single" next to any listed single in his book that charted in the UK, but he omitted to do so on this one (it got to no. 45). Would I be correct in assuming that he doesn't like Mr. Porter, but he likes Yes Indeed I Do, so he's listed that instead.
