Yesterday I picked up 720 pieces of shellac and vinyl in Kansas City. They originated in the possession of the Clavin Company ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calvin_Company ). I believe they've passed through two people's hands between Calvin and myself.

I've sorted them by label and counted them. The next step is to document the catalog numbers and figure out what I've got here.

Questions, answers, suggestions?

405 10" Red Label Chappell (almost all vinyl...a few are shellac)
127 10" Blue Label Chappell (almost all shellac...a few are vinyl)
64 10" Green Label Boosey & Hawkes (almost all shellac)
40 10" Green and White Label Boosey & Hawkes (almost all are vinyl)
36 10" Black Label Sonaura
3 10" Red label Sonaura
7 10" Audio
1 10" Video Moods
1 10" Impress
19 12" Boosey & Hawkes Green Label
26 12" Boosey & Hawkes Green and White Label
28 12" Sam Fox

Yes, I am able to. It could happen, too. It's time intensive and not the first priority when it comes to inventorying this lot. Also, I have a weekly radio show to prepare and a spouse to keep happy...and a real job. So, patience is a must.

Of course. Most of us are the same trying to fit it around real life.  We could probably pin-point one or two ‘most wanted’.

I'll try and post the Sam Fox catalog numbers I have very soon. I listened to a couple of them while I was counting the rest of the lot and they were really good.

Of the Chappell, it looks like I'm missing 34 items between the catalog numbers 470 and 1025.

Excellent. I know some find it a little bit grubby to talk about money, but are you willing to say how much these cost?
