We buy a lot of record collections here at eil.com, and once in a while you get something really special turn up. Such was the case earlier this week, when one of buyers struck gold with a collection of rare and vintage items, that covered pop, soul, jazz and beyond.
Below are just a few of the highlights from the collection, and you can see more in the video we have put together.

This is a firm Northern Soul/Mod favourite recorded at Abbey Road, starring some of the cream of the 60s British RnB boom including Harry Beckett, Mike Carr & a young John McLaughlin, who has the writer’s credit for the b-side ‘Cruisin’. Herbie went on to front Alexis Korner’s group & this is a very collectable & valuable 45 for any 60s Parlophone/British Beat collector.
