The most represented artists being The Rolling Stones (50+ albums) and the Beatles (60+ albums).

Previous Sales of Records Chosen at Random from this Collection. The records and sleeves range from Fair to Mint/Sealed, with the vast majority of them graded in the VG+ (Very Good +) category, see Goldmine Record Grading Standards. There are numerous factory sealed records scattered throughout the collection. Many of the records have unused posters, pictures, and literature that came with them from the factory. Almost all, if not all, play. In person this collection is stunning, every time you pull a record and think wow how is a 50+ old record in such good condition, you pull another even nicer one. The History of the Collection. My Father grew up in the late sixties early seventies, and throughout his life he collected records. He was a music enthusiast and loved rock and roll. His favorite band was The Rolling Stones. Unfortunately he passed away in 2014, and my sister and I inherited his record collection. Since that time we have safely stored the records. If I pulled an album that happened to be sealed I would post it on its own, which did happen multiples time. Therefore, we have decided to sell the entire collection with this post. The collection consists of 5000 12 LP vinyl records (about 67 linear feet, at 75 records per feet), Seventy-five percent of the collection is in artist name alphabetical order. The vast majority of the collection is rock and roll from the 1960s to the 1990s, with a large focus in the 1960s and 1970s lets face it 60s and 70s rock roll is the best! There is also a limited number of other genres including pop a lot of Michael Jackson, Elton John, etc. , country, classical, and soundtracks, but well over 90% is rock and roll/classic rock. If there was a popular rock band in the 60s or 70s, it is almost certainly in this collection, period. The Most Represented Artists in Collection. The Beatles take first place with well over 60 albums (possibly substantially more, this is a low estimate) many with unused posters and pictures, including a high VG+ White Album w/ Poster and Pictures and high VG+ Abbey Road Original Master Recording, see the pictures.
