Our head buyer brings back a bumper stock of rare US pressed Vinyl, CDs and Posters from a buying trip around the West Coast of the USA.
More will be hitting the site over the coming weeks so keep checking back here. It’s all top quality, even archive quality, with the focus on the highly collectable and sought after pieces such as Beatles Butcher Sleeves, Bob Dylan Mono Originals, Zappa Sealed LPs and more modern investment vinyl such as David Bowie’s Blackstar, sealed Clear Vinyl.
BOB DYLAN Blonde On Blonde – Archive Quality 1967 US 14-track double LP containing the much sought after original US MONO mix, with machine stamped matrices in the run-outs ending 2J/3D/4C/2J. The ‘two eye’ labels have white ”360 Sound’ perimeter text, ‘Bob Dylan’ below ”Blonde On Blonde’ in black, ‘Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The’ misprint on side two [& ‘Leopard-Skin Pill-Box hat’ in lower case]. The heavyweight gatefold picture sleeve has the Claudia Cardinale picture inside & even the original tearbags tucked in. This is a glorious archive copy obtained from its one previous owner in the States. Both the sleeve & the vinyl discs appear Near Mint. On close inspection there is merely the very lightest evidence of its age [tiny spot of wear to one edge] & both discs have an incredible deep sheen on all four sides with barely any signs of play. Highest recommendation C2L41

A mint investment grade package!
