I've had a couple of CD deteriorate (the silver comes off), so I've had to purchase them again. So much for the promises made when "Tomorrows World" spread jam on them and kicked them around the studio. This will be a real problem in the future as many of my CDs are by quite obscure artists. I've always bought the vinyl as well as the CD (where possible) for this very reason.

Massively regretting my trip to the tip with 4 bin bags of VHS tapes after reading the comment about someone getting decent dosh for them - thought no one used video recorders any more!
I've noticed quite a few of the CDs had got "rot" - especially early Island ones for some reason - tacky manufacturing I guess.
Haven't the heart to look at the vinyl yet...
+1 . This or ebay is undoubtedly the best way to maximise the cash you get from them but it's potentially a lot of effort on your part. Still depending on how much Music Magpie offer you may only need to sell a small number to beat their offer. Especially if some of them are rare or sought after?
