UK buyers - Shipping is not £9.50 - eBay UK doesn't recognise the actual postage costs from sellers in New Zealand.

I cannot ship anything for £9.50.


Please take a moment to read the following terms below before bidding:

As per eBay’s terms I have to send any parcels via a tracked service!  


1. The cheapest tracked service is by EMS approx. 5-10 working days with a tracking & insurance.

This costs £22 for the 1st LP and £3 for each additional LP to the UK/Europe/USA/Japan.

Only Australia is cheaper with the 1st LP via tracked courier  £15 + £3 for each additional LP.

Double albums count as 2 LP’s , Triple albums count as 3 LP’s, Box Sets are counted per LP.

2. I only ship to selected countries – please see the list below. If your country is not listed you can get in touch with me to see if we can work something out.

3. Please ensure you know about customs duties /import taxes payable in your country. These charges are the buyers responsibility and you need to be aware if there will be any duties for you to pay.  Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding/buying.

These charges are normally collected by the delivering freight (shipping) company or when you pick the item up - do not confuse them for additional shipping charges.

4. Please wait for my invoice before making payment. 


Please make payment within 3 working days unless already discussed.



This auction is for all 3 LP's released in NZ between 1985-1986. Queen only played one concert in NZ in April 1985 and these items were pressed as a result of Queen's soaring popularity from the forth coming show and also the popularity of having visited.

1. A Kind of Magic  'dayglo' orange translucent vinyl - one of the coolest records ever ! Released in 1986 by EMI NZ - this special run was a result of the popularity post the live show and also the hugely popular film ' The highlander '.

Condition (visual grade):



2. Live in Concert - Unique NZ only live sleeve. Released to promote the tour it was an edited version of Live Killers ( Queens only live release at the time). Released by Elektra records. 

Condition (visual grade):



3. The Works - GOLD - very rare Australian press with gold lettering in the title and rear (as opposed to the standard red). These copies were imported from Australia to keep up with the demand for the LP around the tour period.

Condition (visual grade):



**** I use the UK Record Collector based grading system - see table at the end.


1.      UK/ EU/USA/Canada/Japan

EMS: £22 for the 1st LP + £3 for additional LP's. This is a tracked courier service and takes approx. 5-10 working days (estimate not a guaranteed time frame).


2.      Australia

EMS: £15 for the 1st LP + £3 for additional LP's. This is a tracked courier service and takes approx. 5-10 working days (estimate not a guaranteed time frame).


I can’t offer airmail as an option as there is no tracking number provided. eBay will always side with the buyer if there is a claim for non-receipt of an item (refunded via PayPal) unless the seller can provide a tracking number or proof of delivery. There is no protection for a seller from rogue or dishonest buyers claiming non-receipt or loss of the parcel.

If you need to discuss further then please feel free to contact me. In the past I have almost always used 1st class airmail with almost no issues – only those arising from dishonest buyers claiming non-receipt.
