I own some vinyls of John / Ultravox too and I would never sell it! The reason is, every album have their own story for me and some great remembers comes in my mind if I hold it in my hands.So the vinyls have their own life - it is a part of my life. And at least; it is another feeling to hold and feel a vinyl cover in your hands than a CD. ( This is the reason I like hardcover CD'S more than the plastic things). For me it is not only music - it is art work too. CD'S cannot replace it.
Okay, you have a special situation now and it is a hard decision. I would check first if there is no other way to get money ( Perhaps you have other, not so important vinyls to sell?).
I think, the money is quickly away - is it this worth?
Have you ever seen the film "High Fidelity"?
I'm a guy who's similar to these guy who own the record shop - have the same feelings about vinyls and music.
Poor man! I don't want to change my situation with yours.... <img border="0" alt="[Shake head]" title="" src="graemlins/shakehead.gif" />
