A staggering collection of over 50,000 vinyl records is being sold by the family of a late collector

John Peel, from Ramsey in the Isle of Man, amassed the huge hoard of LPs over decades.

Mr Peel spent a lifetime collecting music records and box sets and bought over 50,000 vinyls at record shops, auctions and car boot sales.

He died in 2017 and they were left to his heartbroken family who have now decided to sell so his widow Rhona can move house.

His daughter Julie Mattin said that she will sell each record for just a quid - even though some are worth up to £2,000.

The collection features music from a broad range genres and also includes TT race coverage, radio promo discs and television and film soundtracks.

Julie said: 'Basically, we don't want these anymore.

'I would love it if somebody walked in here and found a record they have always wanted.

'Whether it is worth 1p or a couple of hundred pounds, they will be able to buy it here for £1.

'I want people to have as much pleasure out of these records as my dad did.'

Hundreds of music lovers were able to sniff out a bargain at Julie's house when she put the whopping collection of LPs on sale at the weekend.

And she insists she will keep hosting the open house events until all the records have been sold.

Julie has organised the records in alphabetical order, from Abba to ZZ Top, and has a separate shelf for films, including box office hits ET and Grease.

She added: 'We lost count of the people but we sold around 2500 records.

'It was mad but also amazing. Everyone was so respectful to mum and she had a great day.

'However, there are plenty more boxes of records to go through and I have just put another 1000 albums on the shelves, including some white labels.

De ene zijn dood is de andere zijn brood ?
De waarde van een verzameling is soms erg relatief.

Op de foto vooraan o.a. "Toppers Van Toen"....... Ik denk dat er mogelijk wel enkele 'kleppers' tussen zaten maar dat een groot deel van de verzameling gewoon in de kringwinkel zal wegkwijnen.....
