Very Good Plus - Vital Vinyl (Collector's Edition) by Jimmy Dread (2018)

« View previous chartView next chart »

I'm currently in my second phase of buying vinyl, having acquired a fair bit at the start of the 21st Century and only starting again at the start of 2015 when my wife bought me a shiny new turntable. I wonder if she realised what would happen as a result...

Amazingly some of the LPs I've acquired during my last vinyl buying phase and over the last couple of years (either from second hand record shops on the cheap or car boot sales) are now worth a packet. Here's a list of the records I have in my collection which according to Discogs are worth the most. Pour scorn over my taste if you must, or make me an offer (although can't see me selling any of these in a hurry). Just get out your anti-static record cleaner, record brush and micro-fibre cloth and go bananas! All original presses here unless stated/good reason or story behind them - take you coloured 180g represses taken from a CD source and put them on your Crosley Cruiser record player like I imagine some here do. Jimmy, September 2018.

StargazerUnited Kingdom Shelagh McDonald
EBay. I first heard Shelagh McDonald via a fantastic psych-folk compy called Gather In The Mushrooms. I'd tried for years to track down this LP, from which the compy track (Liz's Song) is culled from, however it's as rare as the hills. So imagine my delight when I found it on eBay, won with a last second bid (I think I outbid someone by 50p) and was finally united with a record which - alongside albums by Sidan and Sister Nancy - was probably the one piece of wax I was the most ecstatic to obtain.

Rapso Take OverTrinidad and Tobago Brother Resistance
Record Shop (Liquorice, White Waltham). My job takes me all round the country, but oddly enough the most valuable record I've found 'in the wild' was at one of my local haunts, located on an industrial estate in the middle of nowhere at the back of a bric-a-brac shop. I spied this out of the corner of my eye due to the red, gold and green edging on the cover. "Ahhh, Caribbean vibes" methinks, so I ask owner to stick it on. "I can't find it on eBay anywhere, you can have it for a fiver" he says. Hmm, it sounds like a calypso cross between Linton Kwesi Johnson and Fela Kuti. Sure, why not. Get back to car, check price on Discogs. WTF? Sold for £500+ on eBay. Best random purchase ever.

It'll All Work Out In BoomlandUnited Kingdom T2
Record Fair. Original Decca press of (along with Court Of The Crimson King) my favourite prog LP. I first saw this for sale for £200 in the rather charming Land Of Grey and Pink Records in Chester, but obviously passed due to the price. A little while later I picked up a repress in South East London which I was more than happy with. That was until I saw another original press at a record fair in my traditional record buying stamping ground of Guildford. For a tenner.

One, TwoJamaica Sister Nancy
Record Shop (Peoples' Sound, Ladbroke Grove). My own Holy Grail, picked up in People's Sound on the All Saints Road. Cost me at the time more than I'd ever spent on any record currently in my collection (£40.00) but according to Discogs has previously been sold for nearly 3 times that amount. Given all the fuss and bother it took me to finally found a copy would only consider selling if no food was on the table or my ears fell off.

Demonstration TapesUnited Kingdom Dolly Mixture
Private sale (well, Discogs really, but negotiated a better price as the guy selling it lived locally). Now officially the most I've ever spent on a record (£65), but worth every penny. Numbered original with insert, records immaculate, and better still bought from a soul nut in Bracknell who saw the Dollys supporting the Undertones in Guildford back in the day, and promptly bought the record as a direct result. The best records always have stories.

ShowcaseJamaica Jackie Mittoo
EBay. You'll notice as you navigate your way down the list there's a bucketload of reggae in my collection, and a fair bit of it commands a decent price. None more so that this stonking Studio One LP from Skatalites member and keyboard king Jackie Mittoo - an album I'd been after for ages especially as I couldn't find it anywhere to stream on-line. Cheapest price of this on Discogs at time of writing is £230+.

My GenerationUnited Kingdom The Who
Gumtree (UK Craigslist). Original UK (mono) Brunswick press. Bought at the start of 2016 with a couple of other original Who LPs from a guy in Sunbury who was selling his old vinyl collection. Not in the best of shape, but plays through nicely and bearing in mind the guide price is £600 for a mint copy I wasn't going to pass up something that's likely worth £150 to the right person. Cost to me? £3.

In The Court Of The Crimson KingUnited Kingdom King Crimson
Facebook Marketplace. I've been a member of a local FB selling site for a while now, and managed to flog some absolute dross on there in recent times (and I mean DROSS). However, it's rare that anyone sells anything worth buying, although one day this chap who was about to move house listed a couple of Neil Young LPs which I thought for £3 each were worth a nab. Sale agreed, he suddenly pulls out another box which had amongst some Yes and Thin Lizzy LPs a copy of ITCOTCK. Took it out of its sleeve. OMG. 1st press, solid pink Island label, not a mark on it. He wanted £2.50 for it. Seen it go on eBay for over $900.

In RainbowsUnited Kingdom Radiohead
Record Shop (£sd, Salisbury). Xurbia Xendless boxset. First saw this sitting in the corner of my one of my favourite record shops about 3 months before I actually bought it, then one Friday after finishing work (somewhat ironically) in Abingdon decided to make a pilgrimmage down to Wiltshire to see if they still had it. Miraculously they did - for half the price it sells for on-line and with both records unplayed.

Very cool find with the Skatalites. Quite a few other gems I'd love to have. Fantastic concept. Might just do my own.

Great chart idea. I'd love to own any of these. Oddly enough I don't. That's also my least favorite Spiritualized record. Love that you have Belly's Star. That album seems to be one loved by folks who were around when it came out, but the kids don't know how good it is.
