If there’s one thing we as record collectors love, is to be able to track down the perfect conversation piece to add to our collection. The holy grail we always wanted that will form the centrepiece of our collections. At eil.com, we are determined to bring that sought-after piece to your collection and are constantly updating our stock of premium and high-end collector’s items.
While we can’t list everything here, we’ve picked out just a taste of our premium highlights below, and there’s plenty more where they come from over at eil.com.
IRON MAIDEN Fear Of The Dark (Rare 1992 UK 12-track double LP with picture labels, complete with Merchandise insert, glossy gatefold picture sleeve featuring the ‘Eddie’ tree artwork by Melvin Grant. This was the first album not to feature artwork by Derek Riggs. The sleeve shows just a little lght shelfwear & the vinyl remains near ‘as new’ with little sign of play. A fantastic example of this 90s original pressing EMD1032).
THE ANIMALS The Animals (Rare 1966 Japanese-only 14-track stereo LP pressed on Everclean Wine Red Vinyl, housed in a unique silk laminated pinched spine picture sleeve with scalloped flipbacks, Everclean company inner & lyric insert. The thin sleeve shows only a little wear and there is a little foxing to the insert. The vinyl appears Excellent, with just a few light paper scuffs and a little spindle or wear. Tough to find! OP-7438).
THE B-52’S Sampler (Super Rare 1979 UK promotional-only one-sided 3-track white label vinyl 12″, issued to select DJ’s & radio in anticipation of the group’s debut album in Britain. All the other ‘RSS’ series sampler 12″s we have seen in the pasthave the orange sunrise label, but there are some gaps in the series & records that are undocumented. This is one of them. The labels are plain white & annotated with just the artist name one side. The run-outs reveal the exclusive ‘RSS11’ catalogue number as well as a ‘sound clinic’ etching. Tracks featured are the album length versions of Lava, There’s A Moon In The Sky (Called The Moon) & 6060-842. We know quite a few of these Island sampler discs with printed labels & sleeves were limited to 200 copies but we believe this one was pressed in far lower numbers than that. The disc is housed in a plain black reference sleeve & in a die-cut white sleeve with ‘release date 13th July’ annotation. Obtained from the private collection of influential DJ, record executive & TV personality, Richard Park, the vinyl is Near Mint. Ideal for the collector & likely the only one you’ll find on the market any time soon! RSS11).
