This is notice of a major opportunity to purchase thousands and thousands of Vinyl Records, memorabilia and collectibles including Elvis, The Beatles, and many more major recording artists spanning nearly 100 years.  There are many rare albums, album covers, posters, and lots more being offered.  There is a large collection of Juke Boxes, Turntables, Reel to Reel tape players, speakers and most anything related to the music industry. There is also a large Lionel train collection that will be included!  Jim Beaston was an avid collector and caretaker of a massive collection for many years.  Mr Beaston has passed away and his family wants to share this collection with enthusiasts that can appreciate the "real sounds of a needle on spinning vinyl".  You may have seen clips on the Tarheel Traveler or articles in numerous Vinyl Record Collector magazines, blogs, or other newspapers over the years as Mr. Beaston was widely known throughout the Country as always having "that hard to find vinyl of days gone by".  Team JP anticipates at least 2 and possibly more online only auction events in the coming weeks.  Keep an eye on this site as we begin sorting through this massive collection of items as it truly is a museum of history when it comes to all things vinyl! We will be posting catalogues, preview dates as well as auction dates so get ready to get knee deep in music history!

Catalog as of October 15th
