Respect Vinyl is the brainchild of Simon Bardwell, a man of over 30 years experience in the record retail industry.
Simon’s love affair with vinyl started in the mid 70’s after a thrilling live performance by none other than The Clash. This gig led to a life dedicated to the record industry, accumulating to a big black book of record industry insiders and artists, which looks like to all intents and purposes a directory listing and a who’s who family tree. Covering more than three decades of vinyl addiction, over the years Simon has worked for great labels and distributors such as Rough Trade, Cartel, Beggars Banquet and 4AD to name but a few.
Simon Bardwell and Respect Vinyl are ebay powersellers with 100% positive feedback from over 7,000 happy returning customers from almost every country in the world. If there is a place to find a record you are looking for, then surely Respect Vinyl is the place. Simon is also willing to find that missing piece of vinyl from your collection from one of his many sources from around the globe.
