Best wishes

Normally I am now open 5 days a week; closed on Sundays and Wednesdays, but I am happy to see customers by appointment depending on my schedule. Please phone 07925 419465 to check.

I am always interested in buying suitable material - from individual LPs to large collections. However, if you have items that you wish to sell and are travelling some distance, please get in touch beforehand so that we can discuss the possibilities. My requirements are fairly selective and I would not want anyone to be disappointed having come a long way only to find that I am not interested in buying their LPs or CDs.

Record Fairs

I often attend record fairs with a selection from the vast stock that I hold and you might want to check back here from time to time to access my calendar.

I have been dealing in rare records and music memorabilia for over 30 years. I moved to Berkeley, California in 1981 after working for Virgin retail in the UK. While in California I sold at record fairs and in Goldmine magazine during the 80's. Eventually this led to the opening of the original MOD LANG shop in Berkeley, a record label, and a mail order business. In 2011 I relocated to Ludlow and now run a mail order business and small boutique record shop specializing in collectible records, rare memorabilia and posters that is set up as a "living room experience."
