As a British writer for Jazz Journal for many years, ‘Bazzer The Jazzer’, as he was to become affectionately known, built up a massive collection of jazz vinyl of all kinds. Many were review copies, others signed gifts from musicians, or promo copies, in addition to the enormous number of records he bought for himself over the years. The heavyweight pasted picture sleeve even includes the super rare two page document, one A4 page for Graves and one page for Pullen that present SRP Records and describe the music.
