I have 130 singles for sale.
A lot of German black labels.
A lot in picturesleeves.
About 20 are fair/good (without sleeve too).
All singles are used.
Singles and sleeves show sign of wear and tear.
€ 200,00 for the lot.
To be picked up in Rotterdam.
I do not feel like scanning all sleeves and discs, put them on eBay, cut cartons from old supermarket boxes, pack them and walk 20 minutes to the postoffice and people paying slow so I have to go to the postoffice for days on end. Needles to say there always is a queue at the postoffice!


Sometimes Luuk you have to make the effort if you want a return.

I'm sure some people would like to know exactly what you have for sale. Titles would be a good start.

About all titles released 1956-1977
As for eBay, if I sell something for € 1,00 I only get about 50 cents. The remainder is provision for eBay and Paypal.
For that I have to work about 1 hour per title (scanning, put them on eBay, cut carton to size from boxes, pack the single, walk 20 minutes to the postoffice, stand in line for 15 minutes or more, walk another 20 minutes back home.
My friend, whose records these are, prefers to get € 200,00 for the lot rather than 50 cents every couple of days.
I am working on making a website. But the prices will be at least € 5,00 per single there. I'm no Chinese, working for peanuts!
I'd rather sit in the sun.


No one's saying you have to put them on eBay, cut cartons, pack anything or walk anywhere. However, if your friend is selling them, maybe he could at least compile a list of what he has for sale. Why are you doing it? All titles released 1956 - 1977 still says fuck all. How hard is it to just list the damn things?

As for Chinese working for peanuts, how racist is that?

So go sit in the sun. No one's stopping you.

It is common knowledge Chinese wages are very low. So is their rent. They can live on €30 a month, here in The Netherlands the cheapest rent is at least € 500,00.


All I'm saying Luuk is tell us the titles of the singles. It's not hard.

No one's saying you should use eBay.

When I tell the titles, I get questions "what version is the label"?
or "Does the sleeve have an x 5cm fro mteh top left" or whatever peo0ple ask about discs.
So I either have to scan them and put them on eBay or someone has to take their luck and grab this bargain.
Tomorrow someone is coming to see them, so perhaps they are gone soon.


You're obsessed with eBay.

You advertised them on here. Not everyone on this board can come over and see them and not everyone can take their luck and grab this supposed bargain.

All you had to do was type a list which would have taken you about half an hour, if that. You didn't have to scan them.

What was the point of telling us you had these for sale if you couldn't be arsed to tell us what they were? I asked you three times to list them. Are they even Elvis singles? Some people may not even believe you had these for sale.

Anyway, if someone is coming to see them tomorrow, I won't be surprised to hear that you've sold them.

There are several people from this forum that have bought from me, either because I mentioned discs here or because they were on eBay.

I think John has a good point - I wouldn't buy anything without knowing what I was going to get.

It was worse than pulling teeth, trying to find out what he had for sale. Failed.

Don't give Luuk a hard time. I bought from him and he is very trustworthy. He sells stuff for a friend who is in an unfortunate position. Good for him. Now with 130 German singles (with only 20 without sleeve) coming from a fan and collector I would buy them blind since it is E 1, something per item...

if you consider Ebay, Luuk, I advise you not to sell through Ebay.nl but put your german originals on Ebay.de since the market in Germany gives you a far better price. I never use Ebay.nl but always put them internationally on Ebay.de, Ebay.com or even Ebay.co.uk.

I don't know why both you and he keep mentioning eBay. It's got nothing to do with it. I have no problem with Luuk either, I've known him for years. All I asked for was a listing of the singles. You might have bought them blind, I wouldn't.

OK then, I have lots of books for sale for £800, plus a whole bunch of boot LPs for £700 and a further bunch of boot CDs for £1200. Want to buy them?

What do you want a list for? They're books, LPs and CDs. What more do you want to know?

I am scanning the sleeves and singles and discover funny things.
2 singles of Torna a Surriento (Surrender) on German black label RCA 47-7850 having the same label and same matrixnumber engraved but.... there obviously is a visable difference: on one single the grooves takes up 2 cm, while on the other single the grooves take up 1.7 cm.
On the b-side the grooves take up about equal space.
The only difference in the wax is that one single has a D while the other has 2x a * engraved.

Or the same singles except that Manufactured in Germany is located at a different place in the run-off vinyl, once near the label and on the other single near the musicgrooves.

I can scan about 5 singles per hour on my slow scanner, therefore I am not halfway scanning them all.
Plus I have to do the regular things one does when one has a life, like visiting my sister.
Lunchbreak!

It could have been both !

She was very happy to see her brother, Luuk, but after he ate all the cheese & polished off the brandy, she was happy to see the back of him !

In fact she regretted I had to go.
We are very close.
I never drink brandy or any other alcoholic drinks.

Oh well, back to scanning singles.
Another 32 to go, including blue and red sleeves of Stay away, at scanning 5 per hour or another day (tomorrow).
When done I have scanned all singles from Heartbreak hotel/I was the one to For the heart/Hurt.

You'll be gone is composed by West - Presley - Hoaga according to the German RCA-Victor black label
I always throught it was composed by Red West, Elvis Presley and Charlie Hodge.
You don't suppose RCA made a typo?
