About me

 

Who am i? 
Well, my name is Henk Lahaye , I live in the Netherlands and was born in 1944. 
The virus of recordcollecting got to me around 1970, I started buying records in the Netherlands, Germany, Great Britain, France etc. for a few years and then I took my first trip to the USA (after all Rock & Roll, Blues etc. was born right there).
Fascinated over all these great records , the recordlabels and there history's I kept going back and back, I traveled the USA for more then 30 years from the east to the west and the north to the south, always looking for those fabolous goodies. 
Over the years I bought, sold and traded many records from many collectors and dealers in the USA, I met many nice people, had great stays at there houses and had too many good drinks and dinners with them (this goes for all these nice recordpeople in Europe too off course). 
I will always be a recordcollector but ............time marches on and now it is time to sell the major part of the records that I still have. I will try to list new records every month, all types and always some great rand rare ones.
You will be given all the information that you need to order records with full confidence. 
If I make a mistake here or there, if I forget to mention anything let me know (I do make mistakes). 
Suggestions are always welcome. 
If you like the webshop let me knew, if you dont like it dont tell anyone ! 

Hope to hear from a lot of you collectors out there !
