There’s nothing more satisfying than finding that one record you have been desperately searching for. The one that you have been saving for, waiting for the day it appears and you are ready to make it the centerpiece of your collection. Providing the best, valuable, and high quality records and memorabilia is what we have a passion for here, and it has been our mission since the start.
Each week we give you a round up of the premium collectables we currently have that are just waiting for the perfect home. You can see our top three highlights below, which include rarities from Pink Floyd, Hawkwind, and Allman Brothers Band. Head to our store to see our full listing of vinyl rarities and collectables.
Nick Drake – Bryter Layter: Rare 1970 UK first pressing 10-track vinyl LP, issued on the pink rimmed Island ‘palm tree’ label with textured picture sleeve. Often confused with the 1972 pressing with a similar label, this is the very first issue.This copy is graded VG condition but plays through beautifully £295
The Jacksons – The Jacksons: Very rare 1976 US 10-track PICTURE DISC LP featuring the same colour image of the group on both sides of the album, with die-cut title/tracklisting sleeve. Released on Philadelphia International Records and distributed by CBS, the LP includes the tracks Enjoy Yourself, Good Times, and Dreamer. The sleeve remains in its opened shrinkwrap with minimal wear; the disc appears unplayed and in near ‘as new’ condition. This is arguably one of the rarest picturediscs in The Jacksons back catalogue £275
Fairport Convention – Fairport Convention: Extremely rare 1968 UK first issue 12-track stereo vinyl LP, featuring Ian MacDonald, Judy Dyble, Richard Thompson, Simon Nichol, ‘Tyger’ Hutchings & Martin Lamble, produced by Joe & Tod Lloyd for Witchseason Productions. Recorded well in advance of their future popularity, this debut record sold quite poorly & has now become very difficult to find. Apart from the optimistic single ‘If [Stomp]’ that was released, most of the rest of this album has long since disappeared into history. Complete with the fully laminated picture sleeve. £250
