I know I'm behind in my blogging again, but, I've been insanely busy with the cataloguing, well not quite the cataloguing, more sorting out.
Lets start with the current statistics ....
12" Singles Shelf : This shelf has gone. Well the contents have been merged into other shelves. I came to prepare a 12" single special and I found that a lot of the 12" singles that I had had become unplayable or cracked in the move, so some have sadly had to be sent for recycling :(
7" Singles [1950's] Shelf : 5 Records
7" Singles [1960's] Shelf : 53 Records
7" Singles [1970's] Shelf : 159 Records
7" Singles [1980's] Shelf : 187 Records
7" Singles [1990's] Shelf : 193 Records
7" Singles [2000's & Later] Shelf : 12 Records
Box Sets : 25 Box Sets Shelf Complete until I get some more

I've been sorting out the 7" singles with the help of The God Of Thunder, we have almost sorted out all of them, there are only 2 smallish boxes left to sort.
You may be asking why not catalogue as you sort? Well the answer is that there are so many singles, and they all would have to go on different shelves, we decided that we would sort them, then we could add them one decade at a time, which would make the adding to each "shelf" so much faster and easier.
I am hopeful that over the next one or two weeks everything (and I do mean everything) that is here at Vault HQ will be in the webite catalogue for you to browse.
I will admit, there are a few smallish boxes of albums still in the offsite storage, and they will return to Vault HQ around Christmas time so the Vault catalogue will finally be complete early in 2019.
I am working on completing the code for the Track search option and also a more accurate Artist search, (at the moment it doesnt search Various Artist releases but it will).
As ever, I'll catch you on the flip side and keep putting that needle on the records, (carefully) and we'll see you on air!
