Record Collector

Elvis is on the front cover of Record Collector once again. The September 2009 issue covers a story about (on of) the largest Elvis collections that will be up for sale later this year.

This is what everyone can read, for the complete article you'll need to go to the shop or subscribe to the magazine:

"Later this year, one of the biggest collections of Elvis Presley records in the country – and maybe the world – will be put up for sale. “I’ve reached the end of the road, really. I’ve literally got everything,” says proud owner Steve Lacey. “At this stage, there are only a few things that I’m missing and unlikely to get. I’d like to think that there’s someone out there who would buy a collection that has a copy of every single, LP, CD and box set that Elvis has ever released.”

Steve started collecting at the (love me) tender age of 11 and, 32 years later, has a complete collection of every record released by Elvis Presley worldwide. “My mum had two Elvis records in the house,” he recalls, “which were How Great Thou Art and You’ll Never Walk Alone. I remember the day Elvis died, I was upstairs in my bedroom and she shouted up that he was dead. I played those two records the next day and started collecting on 17 August 1977 – the day after he died.

“The first records I bough were a Sun collection and the Moody Blue LP. Now, 32 years later, I’m still up at quarter-to-four in the morning, bidding on records on the internet!”"

Why, after collecting for so long, is he selling his collection ? I would find it difficult to sell any of my collection. I guess there must must be a reason.
