Sell your vinyl and support the National Jazz Archive Archive

 

The National Jazz Archive holds the UKís finest collection of written, printed and visual material on jazz, blues and related music, from the 1920s to the present day. Founded in 1988 by trumpeter Digby Fairweather, the Archiveís vision is to ensure that the rich tangible cultural heritage of jazz is safeguarded for future generations of enthusiasts, professionals and researchers. The National Jazz Archive is based in the Essex County Library, Loughton Essex.

As a charity, the Archive is always seeking means of raising funds to enable to continue itís work ensuring that the wealth of books, magazines, photographs and musicianís archives are available to academics, researchers and regular jazz fans now and in the future. In particular, the Archiveís web site is universally accessable - without charge. One means of raising funds is arranging for jazz fans and their families to dispose of precious vinyl and CD collections avoiding the local charity shops or even the dreaded skip!

It may be that your beloved vinyl records and CDís are just collecting dust. Or you may have replaced all those treasured tracks with MP3 downloads. Possible a loved one has passed on and youíre looking for a good home for their prized collection. Contacting Rabbit Records would enable you to support your Archive with a financial gift or just convert the collection into hard cash.

Since 2007, Rabbit Records has been working with the National Jazz Archive to help people to donate or dispose of their collections of vinyl records and CDs. While their main area of interest and expertise is jazz and blues, they have over 20 yearsí experience in the record business covering all genres of music including rock, pop, 60s, classical, soul and R&B.

Over the years they have built up an extensive customer base across Europe, North America and Asia, including newer markets such as Russia and China. So, if you decide to donate or sell your collection it will be distributed widely to music lovers internationally who will experience the same enjoyment and love of the music as you.

If you wish to donate your collection to the National Jazz Archive then Rabbit Records can facilitate the sale, with a proportion of the proceeds passed on to benefit the work and continued development of the Archive.

Alternatively, Rabbit Records will purchase collections directly from the seller and then independently make a donation to the Archive to acknowledge the initial referral, so the Archive still benefits.

Rabbit Records are happy to discuss and handle collections large and small, ranging from a couple of boxes right up to major collections. Arrangements may be made for a personal collection service from your home or office. To discuss your requirements simply contact Scott Nicol at Rabbit Records on 07710 794896 or e-mail sctnicol@gmail.com.
