45 RPM Records and Picture Sleeves For Sale

by Administrator 27. July 2016 13:21

It’s hard to find a place to begin with Parker’s Records and Comics website, because the website and business itself has so much to offer for collectors.  You would think by the name that it’s self-explanatory, but really there is much more to it than just “Records and Comics.”  Focusing specifically on records, they come from different eras that helped create the rich history music currently has.  Some of the artists influenced modern musicians and the sound that some genres have today.  What Parker’s is known for is the collection of 45 RPM records and picture sleeves, sold separately or at times together.  While exploring the online catalog, you’ll notice sound clips, a breakdown of categories or genres, grading, pricing and more.

Parker's Inventory-Partial

Whether you’re looking for a specific album or just exploring all of the 45’s Parker’s has to offer, it’s a breeze navigating the website.  To shop for records, you’ll just need to mouse over the “Records” section in the top navigation, select a genre like “Soul Records and Funk Records (45’s) and then click the red search box.  From there, you can look specifically at new listings, or search alphabetically by artist (last name if applicable.)

Something that separates Parker’s from the pack is the massive collection of sound clips that are available with most records.   Owner Don Parker updates these regularly in the case you’d like to verify that a certain record is exactly what you’re looking for or just enjoy a few older sounds to reminisce, you’ll have no trouble at all.  All you need to do is see something you want to listen to that is underlined and displayed in blue as a link, click it and you’ll start to hear that specific track!

One thing that is especially important to collectors is the grading.  Don grades using the standards listed in Goldmine Magazine, and he understands that grading is a subjective practice.  Therefore offers 14 days to return a record if anyone is dissatisfied.  See the full details, here.

After reading through the basic information of a record like its grading and genre, you’ll come across the price.  A number of factors are incorporated into pricing, but Parker’s is confident that they price competitively, because they’re often below the magazines or other guides price levels. 


If you’re in the market for an old classic or looking to improve your collection, Parker’s is the clear choice.  Everything from lesser known artists and records, to big names like The Temptations are among the many you’ll find.  You can look back to our last post on Northern Soul authorities, their picks and how Parker’s inventory stacks up to get a better idea of the depth the collection has.

I believe everything posted made a bunch of sense. However, what about this? suppose you wrote a catchier post title? I ain't suggesting your content isn't good., but suppose you added a post title to possibly grab a person's attention? I mean How To Find Opulent Holidays In North Africa At Bargain Prices is a little boring. You should glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they create news titles to get viewers interested. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab people interested about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.
