Dave McAleer

Reader Dave McAleer needs to part with his collection of music magazines and books (and maybe some records and CDs too).

His collection consists of music trade papers and weekly music mags alongside R&B, Rock and country specialist publications that he accumulated between 1957 to 2010. The collection includes a full 50 years of Billboard and decades of Music Week, Cash Box, NME, MM, Record Mirror, Record World and similarly large sets of magazines like Blues & Soul, Country Music People, Echoes, Black Music, Dance Music Report, Hit Music and others. It also includes reference book used during the 25 + years he spent writing books and sleeve notes.

If you're interested in contacting Dave about his collection or any part of it please email us at john@chartwatch.co.uk and we'll put you in touch.
