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.
Beach Boys – Pet Sounds: Extremely desirable 1966 UK first issue 13-track Mono LP the rainbow rim Capitol label with logo on the left & ‘Sold In The U.K.’ text above, front laminated flipback picture sleeve printed by Garrod & Lofthouse with ‘Patents pending’ text on the bottom flip.
Ginhouse – Ginhouse: Rare 1971 UK 10-track vinyl LP, the legendary lone release by the short lived Newcastle-based heavy blues-prog trio which had to wait a criminal twenty years for a reissue, powerful rhythms with prog flourishes & moody flutes come together with a strong vocal performance to produce this really nice period piece; matt gatefold picture sleeve with internal die-cut pocket featuring a wonderfully psychedelic picture of a cottage! The sleeve is predominantly white, meaning a little discolouration is inevitable, but nothing particularly severe, whilst there is a 1″ tear to part of the die-cut pocket with just a little ringwear to the front and no paper loss or seam splits; all in all a great example graded as VG+. The vinyl is graded as Excellent with barely any sign of spindle wear and a single faint hairline just preventing it hitting Near Mint. A really great example!
Patto – Patto: Rare original 1971 UK issue 8-track LP on the Vertigo ‘swirl’ label, textured gatefold picture sleeve designed by Tony Benyon [of NME ‘Lone Groover’ fame] with poly lined ‘swirl’ inner sleeve. The sleeve is graded Very Good, with some minor wear a couple of spots of paper loss, the spine has legible print and the inside spread is beautifully clean and unblemished. The inner remains very clean and shows little age, the labels are also clean with minimal spindle marks and the vinyl shows only light signs of play. Although not mint, this is still a really nice example of this legendary debut, an ideal play copy or to upgrade your tired vinyl.
