who wants these records?

I've got to move again, pretty soon. I'm considering selling all my vinyl record albums. I've got about 400 left. (I had about fifteen hundred when Katrina struck. (Got to watch a backhoe pick up and dispose of the ones the got wet. Fun.) Anybody want to tell me the best way to do this?

They're in good shape. (I sold about 500 that had cat damage to the spines.) Stylistically they're all over the map. I've got about 4 AC/DC and 5 or 6 ZZ Top. From where I'm sitting I see Allman Brothers, Neko Case, Charles Mingus, Irma Thomas, ELO, OBN IIIs, Belle and Sebastian, The Pogues, Howlin' Wolf, The Raspberries, Jim Jones Revue, Springsteen, Barbara Lynn, Chef Menteur, The Specials, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg OST, The Clientele, a couple Roger Millers, Ray Charles, a signed Bo Diddley (sniff...), a couple Calypso compilations, Jimmy Reed, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, The Magnetic Fields, Bobby "Blue" Bland....etc. Good records. 

Let me know if you want details. I probably will sell most of the books too. Last time I moved I could have moved for fifty bucks if I weren't carrying all of this (admittedly wonderful) stuff.
