    Hi Guys (& girls)

    Recently had the misfortune to suffer a flood in the house in early August. One of the casualties was 399 LP’s. Now, the insurance company has provided a reasonable amount of money to replace these. But what I need to do is store them in covers (the originals are welded together, turned to mush or just plain fallen apart) whilst I start to source mint S/H or some new pressings, of those I can replace. Or some mint covers for those that I assess as non-warped, cleanable and so on that are irreplaceable. The thing I need is about 400 card sleeves (like the good old record shops used to keep the LP’s in whist the covers were in the racks) and a similar number of inner sleeves. the inners are no problem, but the outers are another matter. I know I can source these from the US, but anyone know of a UK source?

    Not yet back in the house, as it is currently uninhabitable so will only be able to check in occasionally for updates – so hopefully “thanks for responses” in advance.

    Not really that devastating as this represents less that 20% of my collection - also 72 CD's damaged in the process, but CD's are only suitable for background music as we all know! :D So have yet to even think about those.
