THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS OF RECORDS FOR YOU...GREAT STUFF HERE! SERVING RECORD COLLECTORS AND DEALERS SINCE 1975!
IF THERE ARE ANY BAD LINKS OR
OTHER ISSUES ACCESSING ANYTHING ON MY WEBSITE, PLEASE TELL ME
so I can
remedy it, and help you see what you want to see. If it is
needed, I can send you the needed information via email. (I just
corrected some bad mistakes on three documents, and they've been opened
up again for you.)
ordering methods are now in place. If you see anything you want,
just list them in an email for me, and I'll tell you how much $$ to
**EXPECT LIST #96 IN AUGUST 2022**.
tell you what, buoys and gulls - it's a RELIEF to be finished with the
Catalog 95 season. There were such incredible numbers of
"glitches in the Matrix" in filling orders, and just in
general. Moving all operations back to Macomb IL in the
middle of filling orders (July) complicated matdters as well. ALL
OPERATIONS ARE BACK IN CHICAGO AGAIN. Moving
everything (except the inventory) to Macomb for a while was a TERRIBLE
FAILURE, and thankfully it will never need to happen again! There were probably more glitches on this list, than on the "doomed" List #79 back in 2006.
FRANK MERRILL/SATURDAY NIGHT RECORDS
848 DODGE AVENUE #PMB-112
EVANSTON IL 60202! [NOTE NEW ADDRESS!]
DO NOT USE ANY CHICAGO ADDRESS FOR ANYTHING. The PMB-501 address NO LONGER EXISTS, and thusly I also decided to rent my new address in a Zip Code that IS NOT CHICAGO.
I know of at least SIX pieces of mail that were simply LOST by the
60660 Post Office in 2021, and that Zip Code has a particularly
terrible reputation among Post Offices in this Big City.
Very important, there is a rather short deadline for this list. PLEASE TRY NOT TO SEND ME ANY ORDER THAT WILL REACH ME AFTER 30 JUNE,
because I may not see any July orders until as late as the middle of
August, and you will miss all possibilities of Priorities, Overbids, or
anything else of that sort. (I could be "stuck" in Chicago as
late as 05 July, but I'm DESPERATELY trying to avoid any "July time" in Chicago AT ALL.)
IMPORTANTLY, THIS MEANS THAT *OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS: AVOID ORDERING BY POSTAL MAIL FOR ANY REASON, if humanly possible**.
(I am actually in complete panic mode over this.) This will
probably be true for the rest of my lifetime. Overseas customers
are often not aware of "DOMESTIC" issues in the USA, but please trust
me on this, because it IS happening. ALL OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS, PLEASE USE EMAIL TO ORDER. "WHY?" YOU PROBABLY ASK. Okay, THIS:
The USA's top Post Office official is the Postmaster General. The
one installed by Donald Trump is still in office. Mr. DeJOY
is the Postmaster General. He owns a lot of stock in UPS and/or
FedEx, and his SOLE MISSION IN LIFE, NOW, is to completely destroy the
Post Office, or perhaps even make it EXTINCT. (This is one reason
I no longer use a P. O. Box for my address.) DeJoy started
working on this mission-in-life early summer 2020, because I'm sure it
was Trump who ordered him to try to destroy the Post Office, so that
Democrats couldn't vote by mail. He continues the mission. THIS
IS THE PROBLEM: POSTAL MAIL NOW OFTEN TAKES TWO OR THREE WEEKS TO
REACH THE USA FROM OVERSEAS. ANY MAIL THAT ENCOUNTERS THIS DELAY
**WILL** BE RECEIVED IN JULY, MEANING YOUR ORDER WILL DIE. PLEASE don't take this chance.
Again, ALL of this is new since my 2020 list was out. Under
DeJoy's orders, many millions of dollars worth of
possibly-irreplaceable sorting equipment has been destroyed.
Email WILL reach me on a timely basis! THIS PERTAINS TO OVERSEAS ONLY (because, after all, USA MUST use postal mail).
USA ORDERS HAVE FEW, OR NO, PROBLEMS THIS YEAR,
but those who have email capacity SHOULD alert me that there is a
postal order en route which will allow me to notice any issues that
might arise after all.
FRANK MERRILL///SATURDAY NIGHT RECORDS
848 Dodge Avenue #PMB-112
Evanston IL 60202 U.S.A.
All mail goes to EVANSTON. DO
NOT use the old Chicago address. It no longer EXISTS. (I
gave my addrsess TWICE, intentionally, to make sure any existing
customers also change my address. EMAIL REMAINS THE SAME.)
Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org PLEASE remove both 444 numbers.
All below documents are now in .rtf and .txt format: However, THE VINYL VAULT (which is linked at the bottom of this page, which opens the page full of links to 11,000 more titles) still DOES have .DOC documents.
LET THE DOCUMENTS BEGIN!!!

PLEASE, ALWAYS, PUT *YOUR SHIPPING ADDRESS* ON YOUR ORDER. (especially UK, where addresses are most often forgotten.)
PART ONE: RECORDS *NO DISCOUNT*:
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] HUGE NONCHART SECTION—THIS SECTION
IS WILD! PLENTY of BID//MIN:xx itemshave
been added this year, as I get much closer to having nothing much
of great relevance left in my stock. There are still a few
"suspicious" (of possibly being rather valuable) items left to
audition, but most of what's left now have lowered expectations.
The future will still have more valuable items coming from my
most notably in the "rear" of the alphabet from my novelty collection,
as well as from ANSWER RECORDS (which I am still very far away from
finishing yet) and CHRISTMAS to a lesser extent. There is
probably also rockabilly hiding in my COUNTRY records not processed
yet. This document, though, DOES have some good garage stuff on it, surprisingly!
I think I'm done finding good garage that wasn't part of my collection,
though, except for such items that I manage to buy from some people and
what's still in my collection. THERE'S SOMETHING HERE FOR EVERYBODY! I am happy to have my archaic description changed before I've sent out notifying emails.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] COUNTRY AND WESTERN—You will see a LOT of Fifties, and
definitely you’ll have a good time here. This section is very substantial, and it includes a bunch of 78RPM, and a section of
GOOD CHARTED TITLES mostly Fifties.. You
should have fun. Except for some truckin' records, almost
everything is older than 1963.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] HORROR, MONSTERS, HALLOWEEN – This is a another substantial list, because I’ve processed more parts of
the alphabet from my personal collection.
There are still some things I keep and don’t list, but not many. [.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] WAR, MILITARY, TROOPS (VIETNAM,
COLD WAR, VARIOUS CIVIL WARS, WATERGATE, OIL...) – There was proven to be enough interest in these, that I’ll keep doing this section. Additional to this section, I'm maintaining an ARCHIVAL section close-at-hand in PART TWO, below. Again, so much
stuff from all my old inventory, they tend to accumulate (IN THE 40% DISCOUNT DOCUMENT BELOW)…
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] MOVIES, TV, SHOWS AND PERSONALITIES—Unfortunately
I had no time to add to this section in 2021. This section is
tiny, but PRICES HAVE BEEN REDUCED SUBSTANTAILLY since originally listed.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] POP, EASY LISTENING AND NON-ROCK—This section, IS the largest pop section I've ever had, or ever WILL have! There are
actually TWO SECTIONS HERE: (1)
usual noncharted pop and jazz, and (2) THIS IS NEW, Billboard charted hits
1949 to 1955 (and occasional later pop that charted). List #94 debuted
THREE SEPARATE “chart” record sections that I have never done before
anytime in the past: pop, country
(above), and 1990’s stuff (below)!
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] NOVELTY AND TOPICAL (ALL TYPES)—HUGE
SECTION again this
year! There are a lot of records here!. You will have a lot of fun!
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] BILLBOARD
CHARTED HITS *ALL CHARTS* - LOTS OF SOUL!!— 1954 to late 1980s...THERE’S A LOT OF GREAT STUFF HERE, and everybody should look here. I’ve
kept this section heavy with Bubbling Under, for those collecting that chart, too.
You can expect a large charted sectio on List #95, when MANY, MANY NEW TITLES will be added to this.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] BILLBOARD CHARTED HITS - 1989 and later!
This is a new never-before section. This is entirely
Billboard Chart records (Hot 100) from VERY LATE, after vinyl became
difficult to find. Collectors of this should enjoy this! NOTE: None of this document is on my PAPER list.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAYS—This is a large selection!!
You’ll see a substantial part of my personal collection (which I’m
starting to divest) in this document. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PAPER LIST *SHOULD NOT BE USED FOR ANY REASON* for this Christmas section, because it has the "work-in-process" document which lacks about 200 titles.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] PUNK/NEW WAVE/POWERPOP/ALTERNATIVE - More than 1,100 listings. ALL
RECORDS in this selection *will never appear on a paper catalog*,. These
are all at full price without discount. This is now considered
part of my Internet list (here). [.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] "BILLBOARD-CHARTED" RECORDS/ARTISTS **ALL CHARTS EXCEPT COUNTRY...TONS OF SOUL - THIS IS A MASSIVE LIST**
ORDERS FROM THIS DOCUMENT, PLEASE ADD UP ALL THE PRICES AND APPLY A 40%
DISCOUNT. THIS IS THE ONLY DOCUMENT IN THIS FIRST SECTION, WHICH
HAS A DISCOUNT - all others are at full price. THIS DUPLICATES
THE LINK IN PART TWO, BELOW. It is included here because (1) it includes about 4,000 added records which are debut items "instantly-listed-to-discount", and because (2) the paper list alphabet stops at LINDISFARNE The full A-Z alphabet is available here, at least 6,000 titles!
#############################PART TWO: RECORDS *40% DISCOUNT* - In February 2021, I added 4,000 NEW TITLES that you haven't seen, so you should look here!
ALL DOCUMENTS HERE ARE AS "UP-TO-DATE" AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE. I now include two document formats.
These documents are now all .rtf format, with alternative .txt, which I believe means that you don't need Microsoft Word/Office to open them.
THESE are records with DEEP DISCOUNTS.
These documents are becoming "revolving archives" of sorts. In
most cases 2019 and 2020 documents are now combined.
RECORDS LISTED IN THIS GROUP OF LINKS ARE 40% DISCOUNT ON ALL DOCUMENTS. THIS SECTION. These
are all titles which appeared on Lists #93 and #94, I decided that
maintaining this as an archive (for now) is NOT that difficult!
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] HUGE NONCHART SECTION [records from 2020 - from List 94]--ALL RECORDS ON **THIS DOCUMENT** are ALSO 40% DISCOUNT (as are ALL documents in this group)!
After List #95 wraps up, I may eventually add records I won't carry
forward from THAT list, into these discount documents, but this isn't
[.rtf VERSION] [[NO .txt version]] HUGE NONCHART SECTION [records from 2019 - from List 93]--ALL RECORDS ON **THIS DOCUMENT** are ALSO 40% DISCOUNT! Yes, you found a GOOD deal here, for cheap stuff...have fun here, guys! Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.
[.rtf VERSION] [[NO .txt version]] COUNTRY AND WESTERN (pre-1965)...AND TRUCKIN' (all eras) [records from 2019] - This is mostly Fifties, and definitely you'll enjoy this if you
collect this genre. Except for the very few TRUCKIN' records, almost everything is older
than 1963. Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] HORROR, MONSTERS, HALLOWEEN - There's still some fun stuff in here! Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] WAR, VIETNAM, OIL CRISIS, HOSTAGES, SOLDIERS/PEACETIME, COLD WAR, ETC.
There was enough interest shown in these in 2018, that I am continuing
with this section. This section will continue to be large, because I always have stuff to add. Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] MOVIE/TV MUSIC, PERSONALITY - Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] POP, EASY LISTENING, JAZZ - Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] NOVELTY OF ALL TYPES, TRIBUTES, POLITICS, BREAK-INS, BEATLES, ETC. - This section retains the usual categorical headings.
which I've been using for many years.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] "BILLBOARD-CHARTED" RECORDS/ARTISTS **ALL CHARTS EXCEPT COUNTRY...TONS OF SOUL - THIS IS A MASSIVE LIST**
ORDERS FROM THIS DOCUMENT, PLEASE ADD UP ALL THE PRICES AND APPLY A 40%
DISCOUNT. This duplicates the link above. This document is special, because (1) it includes about 4,000 added records which are debut items "instantly-listed-to-discount", and because (2) the paper list stops at LINDISFARNE (I THINK!! - there are some PAGE-duplication issues with the guy printing my list, hopefully he can fix this...it's MY mistake...he's working on it now), but the full A-Z alphabet is available here, at least 6,000 titles! (Because of this, the PAPER LIST
may not include as many additions as it says, if he can't fix the issue!) No matter what turns up on the paper list, it
is safe to order from here right now, and it is complete. So, ALSO no
matter what, there are many more records in this document than are
available on the PAPER LIST.
[.rtf VERSION] [.txt VERSION] CHRISTMAS AND OTHER HOLIDAYS AND CELEBRATIONS - Similar to above descriptions, but discounted.
"ARCHIVES DISCOUNT SECTIONS"///more than 15,000 RECORDS FOR SALE///DISCOUNT is NOW 40%:
NONE OF THESE ARE ON PAPER CATALOGS, and will not be - unless there's random duplication.
[.rtf VERSION] GOSPEL AND RELIGIOUS 45's -
You will find about 400 records in this section. Contrary
to my usual approach, THESE are listed by LABEL instead of by artist.
[CLICK HERE] [THESE ARE ALL .DOC WORD DOCUMENT FORMAT]
THE VINYL VAULT: 45RPM ARCHIVE, ALL TYPES!! - This link will take you to a page which has LINKS to AROUND 11000 MORE RECORDS of all types!
Buyers should NOT expect good results for soul, garage, or popcorn, in the VINYL VAULT!
The VINYL VAULT has become rather depleted over the years, though a
handful of rarities may remain in the novelty sections. As with
other PART TWO links above, these are also all 40% discount.
