Legendary Tour Manager’s Records on Sale to Benefit Charity

St Basils is giving music fans the chance to buy a piece of history, as we sell the record collection of a legendary music promotor and tour manager at a special event this month.


On Saturday 29th June, St Basils will be hosting a record fair in the Great Western Arcade selling vinyl records and music memorabilia. The items come from the personal collection of the late Dee McLoughlin, a well-respected tour manager and prolific vinyl record collector.


Over his career, Dee worked with artists as varied as Anastacia, Billy Bragg, Bon Jovi, The Chemical Brothers, Simply Red and many more.  He toured so frequently with Australian rock band Crowded House that they came to think of him as family.


His record collection was amassed over decades of criss-crossing the country on tour and is as eclectic as the variety of musicians he managed on tour. Records on sale include music from George Michael, Elton John, Santana, and Bruce Springsteen, as well as vinyl across an array of genres including jazz, hip-hop and punk.


Barrie Hodge, Head of Fundraising for St Basils said; “I think I speak for everyone at St Basils when I say how privileged we are to be given these records from Dee’s collection. Whilst I never had the honour of meeting the man, it’s clear Dee cared a lot about music and the records are in great condition – and across a variety of music styles. We really hope they find new homes amongst music fans at our event and help us raise money to ensure that young people in the West Midlands do not experience homelessness.”


The record fair will be held at the St Basils pop-up shop in the Great Western Arcade on Saturday 29th June 2024 from midday until 3pm. All are welcome- feel free to share the invite with your musical friends, family and colleagues:
