I have a large collection of Black Music which then became known as Black Music & Jazz Review and finally just BM.
Does anyone know where I could sell these for a reasonable price Question

What years are we talking about Pete and did you want to go down the e-bay/auction route?

Early 70s through to the 80s, I think they're too heavy to post.

The `70s issues would be most valuable, with `73-`76 being particularly desirable. You could try selling them individually, either on e-bay auction with a starting bid of 8 or as Buy It Now's as 10 each, or as a complete collection (maybe separating the `70s and `80s out). It largely depends what you want to get for them - selling them singly, I imagine you'd be sure of getting takers at around the 5 mark - or whether you simply want shot of them.

There used to be a business name of Backnumbers which sold old music magazines and papers. Not sure if they're still going, but that's where I got nearly all my BMs from in the mid-`90s.

Dear Pete,

Anything with Carl Gayle in them. Which was from late 73 - December right up to 1977.

And like Marc said - they must be worth 10.00 each minimum!

Historical documents.

Take care, all the very best

That pretty much dates the 30 or so I have...

..I'm also thinking of shifting my 800+ copies of Blues & Soul...
