During this time we have continued to maintain our e-bay shop - and continued to get 100% customer satisfaction ratings.Even so, we still have thousands of records in stock yet to be listed. Why not take a little time now to imagine the golden sand between your toes, or crystal clear shimmmering waters lapping at your feet whilst browsing - . You might not find a pot of gold or treasures in a sunken wreck, but you might well find a vinyl (or even pre-vinyl) gem of an album or boxed set to enhance your listening pleasure and enjoyment, and that of friends and/or loved ones. Keep an eye out for that musical treasure For boxed sets go to: http://treesureisland.co.uk/acatalog/BOXED_SETS.htmlbeautiful shell, or pearl within a shell.
Love it or hate it, whether it makes you boil over or just leaves you cold, if you are a UK TV viewer, you cannot but be aware of the BBC show 'Strictly Come Dancing'..
For And Against Boxed Sets When someone buys a boxed set, the box, because of its size and weight, , taken in isolation, adds quite a lot to the p&p costs. Having said this we currently have a 'P&P free offer' for purchases of a total value above a certain figure - and ALL boxed sets are subject to a reduction at 25% at present. So pricewise this is the ideal time to treat yourself or friend or family member to some wonderful music.The condition of boxes is frequently excellent, often pristine. Some show signs of wear and tear, but this is mentioned where this is the case, and not only is this hardly surprisng given that many sets are 40 or 50 years old or more, but also invariably the cover has done a first class job of protecting the actual records, and the LPs are - particularly in the case of classical music boxed sets - frequently in pristine condition: as new! Despite the treasure trove of music to be found inside the boxes, where the occasional cover has more than light wear and tear, this will be clearly stated and this will be reflected in a significant price reduction - especially where the item is listed in the 'Bargain Basement' section..
Nursery rhymes, songs and other music, and stories - for children of all ages! (many purchasers are nostalgic Mums and Dads, fondly remembering their own childhoods, often with their own Mums and Dads playing the record to them). This is something of a specialist area for Treesure Island Discs - we have 100+ LPs listed under this heading, as well as similar quantities of as yet unnlisted 7" records, CDs and VCRs and children's books. Please do not hesitste to ask if you don't see what you are looking for. An 'occupational hazard' is that many children's records and, often more obviously the covers, have been well (?) handled by these young personages. So a near mint (NM) record is great, and a near mint cover with it (NM/NM) is a real 'gold piece', to be treasured and , dare I say it, perhaps better to be handled and played for, not by, our own little treasures - bless their cotton socks!
Christmas and New Year LPs. Reasonably priced albums of carols and other rousing seasonal songs, sung by famous pop artists and groups, choirs, school-children, in schools, churches, cathedrals, abbeys. These records celebrate Xmas and New Year in many different ways, from Chas and Dave and Tijuana Brass in festive party mood to the more classical renditions of choral music in places of worship, and including such major works as Handel's Messiah. There is something for all tastes and ways of enjoying the festive season musically.
Our classical records are of the highest quality and condition, some rare. Given that many are over 50 years old and still as new - and possibly never played - they are very reasonably priced (most single LPs are £3.00 or less). Boxed sets are particularly good value for money. Often the box is also in immaculate condition, such that the set would make a lovely present to someone for whose taste the music is appropriate. All renowned classical musical works, their composers, orchestras, conductors, musical insrument players and singers are to be found in our collection, only a small percentage of which is as yet listed.Examples of some of the labels and series are:1) CBS Master Works Series2) Decca Eclipse Series3) Deutsche Grammophon (DGM) Gallery/ Gallria/ Galerie, Signature, Special, Accolade and Privilege Series4) HMV/ EMI Classical Concert Series and the Greensleeve Series5) RCA Red Seal Series and Victrola Series, and6) the Great Composers and Their Music (Marshall Cavendish Series) - DGM, Philips and Decca.Also of course, though often frowned upon by classical music purists, Readers Digest and the World Record Club and other organisations of that ilk, have played a huge roll over the years in bringing classical music into the homes of millions of people and families the world over, and their boxed sets are, to my way of thinking, in many cases, a real treasure!.Operatic and other choral music We have an extensive portfolio of operas and operatic music, which, because of its size, is listed separately under its own section heading (Opera)
We have hundreds of albums, as yet unlisted, which fall under this EASY LISTENING heading.
