how weird that a record shop would even consider buying this off someone. unless they were able to get it for cheap. (otherwise it’s quite a risky buy: you might not be able to sell it.)
indeed a bit odd that they didn’t know where it was, and that they hadn’t tried to sell it for two years, but are intending to sell it soon. what kind of record shop does that? or is it part of someone’s (his?) personal collection right now?
i hope it’s the real thing, and no misunderstanding or something.
