Southern Gospel LP Swap

There are sites that make it relatively easy to swap books and CDs. (The two I use most often are PaperBackSwap and SwapaCD.) But I have yet to find something similar for Southern Gospel LPs. Would there be interest in an occasional—say, quarterly—LP swap here?

Here’s how it could work: We post the duplicates we have, and, optionally, the ones we seek. Since not all LPs have the same value, we indicate whether we would swap it for, say, 1, 2, or 3 others, rating a common LP as 1 and a rare one as 3. (If it’s worth more than 3, just sell it on eBay!)

[Outdated list removed—check out the latest LP swap post.]

Here’s what I’m looking for.
 
Anyone else interested in giving this a try?
 
(EDIT: Three of mine have been swapped out!)

    • I am interested! Let me look through what I have and get back with you. I actually found several new duplicates yesterday.

    • Terry, I am interested in the Weatherfords’ God is the Answer. I might also be interested in London Parris and the Apostles’ Convention Favorites album. I’ll send you an email to see if we can work out a swap.

      • O.K. Daniel, sounds good! Terry
