Everyone has those expensive treats the like to enjoy from time to time, and as record collectors we tend to have more than most. Given they can’t just be found anywhere on any given day, there’s a lot of excitement in finding those holy grail and white whale items. We can help you find the records you’ve been desperately searching for with the high-end collectors’ items we come across.

Below are some hand-picked highlights from our constantly rotating stock, and you can see all our premium rarities over at


METALLICA Ride The Lightning (Rare original 1984 US Elektra 8-track promotional vinyl LP with custom printed white title labels, housed in a gold promotional stamped picture sleeve with lyric inner sleeve. The sleeve displays some light general wear with some scuffing, the inner has a couple of splits whilst complete. The labels are clean and the vinyl shows only a few light signs of play. An excellent example and the first we have seen in over ten years!).
