REMOVE ALL HEAVY UNDERSCORES, and you’ve got it! ALL of my available PUNK & MODERN MUSIC currently for sale…is listed here!
…PLEASE BE SURE TO PUT YOUR POSTAL ADDRESS ON YOUR ORDER…
*NEEDED* in order to quote proper shipping costs, AND/OR PREVENT HORRIFIC MISTAKES when shipping.
THIS DOCUMENT can be referred to as punk records for sale. AT THIS POINT, ALL CURRENTLY-FOR-SALE RECORDS HAVE BEEN MERGED INTO THIS UNIFIED DOCUMENT. THIS LIST is entirely current as of 14 November 2015.
*PLEASE* go to WWW.SATURDAYNIGHTRECORDS.COM, to ASSURE that you have the most up-to-date document. (If you see this in November 2015, this IS the up to date list.) If you find this on Google after 2015, it may be months/years out of date.
ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS: PLEASE MAKE SURE I ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR EMAIL WITHIN THREE DAYS. Sometimes (though not often) emails disappear, and a non-reply may mean your email was never received (I ALWAYS reply).
ALL PRICES ON THIS LIST ARE SET SALE.
ITEM DESCRIPTIONS: Sometimes, to save time, I relied on descriptions I saw on Popsike and other internet sites, when I felt I had enough information. If you see some description in “quotation marks” it is a description from the Internet. The quote is sometimes a COMPOSITE of two or more descriptions – “KBD hardcore punk” could have been gleaned from three different sales. I played many so I could describe in my own terms. If you do NOT see a TEMPO/SPEED (slow, ms, midt, mf, fast) in the description, that almost certainly means I didn’t play the record.
ALL ITEMS **ALWAYS MUST** HAVE TWO GRADES: Second grade is the picture sleeve or equivalent, or it will say (no PS). If only one grade, I goofed – & probably has no PS. If you see anything with just one grade, can you tell me please, so I can fix it? Thanks!!!

COMMONLY USED ABBREVIATIONS: (** items appear BEFORE the price. The price appears after the PHYSICAL conditions of the record, & BEFORE music descriptions, origin, etc.)
a l t - Alternative
** D J - promotional copy (usually sent to radio stations as “freebies” back in the day)
** f o l d o v e r - Instead of a true GLUED Pic Sleeve, this is usually a 7 inch x 14 inch piece of paper folded in half, which
functions as a picture sleeve. This is done quite commonly with punk and independent records.
** G : -[RECORD GRADING] Record, or the PS or foldover, or something else, is “Good” condition. May be + or – as well.
(I know this sounds weird, but it means “NOT in good condition.” This practice is universal among record sellers!!)
GRADING RANGES, best to worst: m-, vg+, vg, vg-, G+, G.
f a s t - the music is FAST tempo. (Note that fast, slow are always spelled out. Also see mid/midt, mf, ms)
H C - hardcore punk
I., Inst., Instr., Instru. - INSTRUMENTAL song, one or both sides, as indicated.
** lyrics - This has a sheet with song lyrics. (** lyrics PS = the picture sleeve itself has the lyrics, usually on the back.)
** m- :[RECORD GRADING] record is “NEAR MINT” condition. I don’t grade anything “MINT” so the m- allows for some
amounts of dust, very minimal amounts of playing, possibly an entirely inaudible scuff, and the like.
m f - MIDFAST (almost fast) tempo m i d (or m i d t) - MIDDLE tempo music m s - MIDSLOW music tempo .
N W - New Wave
P P = Powerpop
s l o w = music is SLOW tempo. (Note that slow, fast are always spelled out. Also see mid/midt, mf, ms)
** v g :[RECORD GRADING] Record is in “average used condition. May be + or -, to show variations within the range.
“vg” is generally acceptable to casual collectors, “vg+” is generally acceptable for serious collectors.
** w o c - writing on cover or PS ** w o l - writing on label
ALSO, note that I sometimes use STATE abbreviations, common city abbreviations like NYC, L. A. or Chi.; also UK, etc.
Also, I **OFTEN** avoid some of these abbreviations, and instead spell out what I’m trying to say.
FIRST SECTION: ITEMS SEPARATED “SPECIAL”(I’ve separated this for bookkeeping purposes)
THIS SECTION, AND ONLY THIS SECTION, IS DISCOUNTED 50% FROM ALL PRICES THAT ARE LISTED HERE! **EXTREMELY IMPORTANT** - if you ask for anything from here, you MUST tell me that it is from this section. If you don’t tell me, I will NEVER find it. I just now (on 25 Feb. 2016) removed Flamin’ Groovies [France] after 5 or 6 people ordered it unsuccessfully, NEVER telling me it was in this section, and therefore I was never able to find it for them. So, without that information, I guarantee I can’t find it. Thank you!!
