On-U Sound In The Area

My 'Wants' List...

Back To Resources Index

This page, unlike the rest of the site, is mostly for my benefit - but perhaps you can help help me fill the gaps in my record collection :) I like many frustrated collectors of On-U Sound related product struggle sometimes against a large back catalogue of poorly distributed and low press run product - some of which has been *out there* for well over 20 years. The Discography section is well 'stocked' with the older and rarer material, but unfortunately this doesn't translate into me owning much of it!

My wants list reads I guess like many others of you - "90% of the rare stuff and 10% of the common stuff" so I'm not expecting my plea to lead necessarily to filling all the gaps - but I'll put my biggest want's here just in case you can help me out :) If you do have a 'spare' of anything in my list below get in touch with me via my Contact Page and we'll take it from there.

Clearly if cash is involved and I don't know you personally then I'd need to be sure that you actually have the precise item I want that you say you are willing to sell, that the price is right, the terms are right, the condition is acceptable to me and in any instance that I actually have the funds to be able to pay you. Therefore do not be offended by any refusal - I may just be strapped for cash at the time!

In the list below 'LP' simply means an album release in ANY format and titles given as '(various)' mean several different items are sought. These then are a selection of my most wanted items - last updated June 2008:
