Where Can I Find Out of Print Vinyl and Collectibles?
We get many letters asking for where to buy old and out of print recordings. If your local used record store is sorely insufficient, we feel the best bet is to do a search and keep tabs on the John Mayall section at www.ebay.com. You can sign up for "save this search" and be emailed when new items come up for sale. We are not responsible for anything that is for sale there, however, so shop carefully. There are thousands of bootleg CD's, videos and collectibles in this world. Check out the seller and ask specific questions. When in doubt, feel free to ask us if something is for real or not! There were hundreds of John Mayall items available here the last time we checked. Don't get burned, though!
