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. Head to our store to see our full listing of vinyl rarities and collectables.
Robert Plant – Mighty Rearranger: Out of print & highly in demand 2005 UK first press 12-track solo LP, an extraordinary accomplishment from one of the most inventive, consistently daring figures in contemporary music. Includes the singles ‘Shine It All Around’ & ‘The Enchanter’. Comes housed in a deluxe gatefold picture sleeve with matching picture labels. The sleeve is Near Mint, whilst the vinyl has just a few very light marks, possibly due to the pressingprocess and looks barely, if at all, played – a stunning copy.
Paul Weller – Heavy Soul: Rare 1997 UK test pressing for the 12-track vinyl LP with etched ILPS8058 A1/B1 matrices & MPO company white labels, annotated on the A side to show the title, account, catalogue number and date, housed in a plain die-cut sleeve with a postal delivery sticker on the front simply annotated ‘Weller’. The labels have just a few light pencil marks, but are generally clean with no paper loss and the writing all clear; the vinyl has light surface marks & scuffs leaving it VG/VG+. The commercial vinyl, being a late 1990s release, is rare in itself and this test pressing is one we are unlikely to come across again making it a must-have
Kevin Ayers – Joy Of A Toy: Fantastic 1969 UK 10-track LP on the Harvest label with ‘Gramophone Co’ perimeter label text & no EMI logo, front laminated gatefold picture sleeve with very small annotated lyric correction inside. The sleeve is still arich & glorious, strong yellow with only faint wear to the laminate around the edges. The labels reveal minimal spindle indicating very little play. The vinyl is super clean & under a bright light, shows just a couple hairline marks not affecting play. A really nice, excellent condition, copy of this Ayers classic!
