What goes around comes around ... and around ... and around ... and lovers of vinyl are in luck this month.
Tapping into a resurgence of interest in the retro musical format, Rotary Club of Tamworth will hold a Vinyl Lovers Night with more than 5000 records up for auction and sale.
It will be a fundraiser for the club's work in the Tamworth area, as well as "a good way of bringing the Tamworth vinyl community together", Rotarian John Nash said.
Club president Steve Beaton said the event was "a bit of an offshoot" to the club's book shed on Manilla Road.
Open regularly since March, the site also sells donated CDs, DVDs, puzzles and games.
"We got some records and [thought we'd] have a bit of fun with it," Mr Beaton said.
Many of the records have been donated at the shed.
Some special items, members have bought especially for the event.
There are 100 lots in the auction, and the diverse listings include Elton John, David Bowie, AC/DC and film soundtracks.
One exciting offering was a pink pressing of The Beatles' Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.
"This is a very scarce record," Mr Nash said.
"There has been none for sale on the internet or anywhere for at least six months."
The reserve price on that album is $500.
Mr Nash had seen another listing, A Whiter Shade of Pale by British rock band Procol Harum, go for $600 - which is the reserve for the auction.
"We will have quite a few record players around here with earphones, so people can listen to their possible selection, if they'd like," Mr Nash said.
The proceeds of this event will support community projects in the Tamworth area.
The club will consider making the auction an annual event if the fundraiser proves popular.
