    Classical Collectables

    Info about some of the more collectable classical pressings can be found here. All prices on the classical listing include professional wet-vacuum cleaning using a VPI 17i record cleaning machine.

    Adam – Giselle, VPO / Karajan. Decca SXL 6002 wide-band deep-groove 1st issue. The thin laminated flip-back sleeve in VG++ condition due to some light creasing and general ageing, though it has no writing or tears, it's actually pretty respectable. The vinyl a lovely strong EX and it sounds great. Book value £50, I'll do it for half that £25.00.

    J. S. Bach - St Matthews Passion, Philharmonia / Klemperer. Legendary blue-silver Columbia SAX 5xLP box in VG+/EX condition with libretto. Box marked-down due to a little shelf wear and a corner split, the contents is in great shape. Inner sleeves non-original (new) as the poly inner layer were starting to go off. Records all cleaned and in immaculate shape with wonderful sound, this record deserves its reputation! Genuine original blue-silver copies like this can make anything up to £500, I'll price this competitively at £250.00.

    J. S. Bach – Golberg Variations, Rosalyn Tureck (piano), HMV ALP 1548 & ALP 1549 (mono, there is no stereo for this one). A legendary, hugely rare two record set, and this pair are exceptionally tidy, just beautiful. The thin fragile laminated half-moon flip-back sleeves show no creasing beyond a couple of very, very minor spine creases, no laminate-lift and no damage to the flip-backs, so a strong EX here. The vinyl is just superb, not the slightest hint of any spindle marking on any label, no surface marking, as fresh, shiny and clean as I've ever seen a record of this age. I played a side on the TD-124 and there's the odd quiet tick and pop here and there (I'll give it a good scrub on the VPI before shipping), but no distortion, no mistracking or any of the other nasties that routinely plagues 50+ year old vinyl, so a nice tidy EX. I've put a couple of pictures on my Flickr account here and here. This is a record set that can eBay for anything up to £350 in this condition, I'll let this lovely set go for £200.00.

    Beethoven - Symphonies 1-9, BPO / Furtwangler, 6xLP box set on HMV, digitally mastered from vintage mono and sounds quite reasonable for historic recordings. Considered the definitive Beethoven cycle by some and in immaculate M/M condition. £25.00.

    Beethoven - 5 Piano Concertos, Rubenstein / Boston Symphony / Leinsdorf, 1970 RCA, German pressing 4xLP, NM/NM £20.00.

    Berwald - Sinfonie Singuläre / Symphony In E Flat, LSO / Ehrling, 'wide-band' Decca SXL 6374 (1st issue for this title). Cover VG+ (small name on real, slight hint of sticker residue to front), vinyl EX £8.50.

    Brahms – Symphony 2, Philharmonia Orchestra / Klemperer, HMV Concert Classics, 'Factory Sample' stickered new old stock £5.00.

    Brahms - Piano Concertos 1 & 2, Barenboim / NYPO / Metha, CBS Masterworks 2xLP NM/NM £12.00.

    Brahms - Piano Concerto 2, Watts / NYPO / Bernstein, nice original 1968 UK blue label CBS EX/EX £6.00.

    Brahms/Schubert - Chamber Music From Marlboro (Brahms Horn Trio OP40, Schubert Auf Dem Strom OP119), Serkin, 1950s Columbia 6-eye mono, cover VG (rather nasty sticker damage top left and a little seam splitting/edge wear), vinyl a very nice tidy EX £5.00.

    Bruch / Prokofiev - Violin Concertos, Oistrakh / LSO / Von Matacik, Columbia 33CX in VG/EX condition (I'm marking the sleeve down as I can't be certain another dealer hasn't guillotined the opening, it looks a bit 'off' to me so maybe not one for the real collectors) £5.00.

    Canteloube - Songs Of The Auvergne, de los Angeles, Lamoureux Orchestra / Jacquillat, HMV ASD 2826, EX/EX £5.00.

    Couperin - Pieces De Clavcin Ordres VIII, XI, XIII, XV / Rafael Puyna, Philips 2xLP box, booklet, EX/EX, £20.00.

    *Cyrillus Kreek - Vaimulikud Rahvaviisid (Religious Folksongs). I've no real idea what this is, but it's Russian and on Melodiya and Kreek is a 20th century Estonian composer, VG+/EX (cover crease) £5.00.

    Dvorak / Smetana - Symphony 5 (New World) / The Moldau, BPO / Karajan, original blue-silver Columbia SAX 2275, very rare but has lightish scuff mark on the Smetana track so graded at EX/VG+ and priced accordingly £12.50.

    Dvorak – Symphony 5, LSO / Kertesz, Decca SXL 6257 wide-band deep-groove SXL 6273 in very nice EX/EX condition, non-original Goldring inner, no doubt replaced as the original Decca ones can be problematic to the record surface £25.00.

    Dvorak – Symphony 7, LSO / Kertesz, Decca SXL 6257 wide-band deep-groove SXL 6115 in very nice EX/EX condition aside from a very light removal hairline so light I can only see it in certain lighting conditions, non-original Goldring inner, no doubt replaced as the original Decca ones can be problematic to the record surface £20.00.

    Erkel – Bank Ban, Nagy / Hungarian State Opera House Chorus, Budapest PO / Ferencsik. Beautiful vintage 3xLP box set on Hungaroton, no indication of date but it has to be 60s. It's a really nice thing. £15.00.

    Falla, Weber, Ravel – Invitation To The Dance, Paris Conservatoire / Wolff, wide-band deep-groove ED1 Decca SXL 2105. A legendary and hugely collectable SXL, one of The SXLs in fact, though sadly this one has been through the wars a bit so I'm a fair way from collecting the £150+ mint ones routinely change hands for. The thin front-laminated cover is very respectable, just a little ageing, yellowing and shelf wear, it just looks a bit old, not abused, I'll go for a VG+ here. The vinyl has some marks, one of which I'd describe as a proper scratch, though I can barely hear it on the TD-124 after giving it a good VPI clean, though you should certainly expect the odd crackle, click and pop with this copy, but nothing too intrusive, again I'll go with a VG+. £25.00.

    Gesualdo - Feria Sexta I, Deller Consort / Deller, Harmonia Mundi, EX/EX £5.00.

    Glazounov - Music For Saxophone, USSR Radio And Television Large Symphony Orchetra / Korneyev, Russian Melodiya VG+/EX (small sticker mark £5.00.

    Gounod – Faust (highlights) Corelli, Sutherland / LSO / Bonynge – Decca wide-band SET 431, insert EX / EX £5.00.

    Grieg / Schumann - Piano Concertos, Katchen / Israeli Philharmonic / Kertesz, Decca SXL 6028, wide-band deep-groove in VG/EX condition, cover marked down due to the presence of sellotape residue (some idiot taped the front-laminated flip-back sleeve and whilst the tape is long gone the yellow stain remains). That aside a nice copy £12.50.

    Handel - Concerti Grossi OP 6-9, 10, 12, I Musici, early Philips stereo with ‘Hi-Fi Stereo’ in panoramic text on maroon label, cat 835 017 AY, EX/EX £10.00.

    Handel - Complete Concerti For Keyboard & Orchestra, Malcolm / AOSMITF / Marriner 4xLP, booklet, EX/EX £25.00.

    Haydn - 8 Symphonies, AOSMITF / Marriner, Philips 3xLP, booklet plus advertising insert 3xLP EX/EX £20.00.

    Michael Li-Paz & Zoltan Rozsnyn – The Magnificent Basso. Rare 1978 Miller & Kreisel Real Time audiophile direct to disk title featuring works from Mozart, Kopisch, Verdi etc, EX/EX £20.00.

    Mendelssohn - Italian And Reformation Symphonies (4&5), NBC Symphony Orchestra / Toscanini. 1958 US ’shaded dog’ deep groove RCA mono LM-1851 first pressing. Immaculate EX/EX condition with no spindle marking and the nice ‘Spectaculars for ’59’ advertising paper inner is pristine implying very low use, the only negative is a tiny dink to the outer sleeve opening where I guess it has snagged being slid onto a rack. A really lovely vintage record £20.00.

    Mendelssohn / Tchaikovsky - Violin Concerto in E Major / D Major, Francescati / NY Philharmonic / Mitropulos, lovely early Philips ABL3159 mono, nice EX/EX £6.50.

    Mendelssohn - Lieder Ohne Worte (Songs Without Words), Barenboim (piano), German DGG 3xLP EX/EX £15.00.

    Mozart - Symphonies 26, 31 & 36, BPO / Bohm, UK 'tulip' DGG in VG++/EX condition (small corner ding) £5.00.

    Mussorgsky - Boris Godunov. Bolchoi/Melik-Pachaev. Lovely 4xLP Russian Melodya, I can’t say much about it other than it’s the real deal and everything is in Russian. A lovely strong EX/EX aside from just a little age-spotting on the cloth box, I’ve no idea how old it is, probably ‘60s or early ‘70s, but it is definitely stereo. A really nice item £30.00.

    Puccini - Madama Butterfly, Opera House Rome / Gavazzeni, vintage mono HMV ALP1215/6/7 set of three individual records, VG++/EX aside from side three which has a couple of light marks. Nice vintage item and priced cheaply £7.50.

    Puccini - Spectacular (various highlights) / Kingsway Symphony / Camarta. Deep-groove Decca Phase 4 hi-fi stunt recording (these are fun!) EX/EX aside from just a hint of age to matt white rear sleeve £5.00.

    Raff – Symphony 3 / Ode To Spring, Westphailian Symphony orchestra / Kapp, Decca pressed Vox Candide EX/EX £6.00.

    Reubke/Bach - Sonata For The 94th Psalm / Fantasia In G, Jenifer Bate (Royal Albert Hall organ), Unicorn EX/EX £6.00.

    Saint-Sean’s - Symphony 3, LAPO / Metha, Decca SXL6482, VG++/EX (very small sticker mark to rear sleeve) £4.50.

    Schutz - Musikalische Exequien Deutsches Magnificat, Spieser, Hansmann / Vienna Chamber Choir / Gillesberger, deep-groove Decca-pressed Vox STGBY 608 in EX/EX condition, rare £7.50.

    Schutz - Die Sieben Worte / Lukas Passion, Leonhardt Consort / Leonhardt, vintage 1st issue gold-black Telefunken stereo SAWT 9467-A. The very fragile thin-card top-loading gatefold sleeve is in VG condition due to a little creasing and a small (5mm) tear to top, the vinyl is immaculate and looks as new. These early gold-black Telefunkens are very rare and sought after, though I don’t know the exact value of this one so I’ll let it go at £10.00.

    Segovia - Granda, 1962 deep-groove Brunswick mono original with laminated flip-back sleeve, features works by Aguado, Sor, Ponce, Albiniz, Tansman, Grandos, VG/EX (a little ageing to sleeve) £5.00.

    Schubert - 9 Symphonies, Kölner Rundfunk Sinfonie Orcheter/Wand, EMI Digital 5xLP. A lovely item in nice strong EX/EX condition £22.50.

    Smetana – Ma Vlast (excerpts), VPO / Kubelik, Decca FFSS wide-band 10” stereo SWL8014, a first pressing from 1958, so right at the start of Decca's stereo production and in EX/EX condition £10.00.

    Stolz - Isle Of Dreams, Vienna Symphony Orchestra / Stolz. Lovely original Philips 838 132 GY with maroon label with ’Hi-Fi Stereo’ logo in cinemascope-style lettering, grades at EX/EX. World premier recording conducted by the composer. £7.50.

    J. Strauss – Johan Strauss Concert, VPO / Boskovsky, wide-band deep-groove Decca SXL 2082, VG+/EX, front-laminated flip-back cover knocked down just a touch due to a light crease and just a hint of age-discolouration to matt white rear, still a stunning copy of a very sought-after 2000 series SXL, priced very conservatively at £25.00.

    J. Strauss – Thousand And One Nights, VPO / Boskovsky, wide-band deep-groove Decca SXL 2288, EX/EX aside from a very small number written on rear sleeve, a lovely copy of a very rare and collectable 2000 series SXL, a bargain at £25.00.

    J. Strauss – Philharmonic Ball, VPO / Boskovsky, wide-band deep-groove Decca SXL 2198, EX/EX aside from a very small date written on rear sleeve and accompanying Pixall 'p' sticker (which I won't remove as they tent to leave a mark), a lovely copy of a very rare and collectable 2000 series SXL, a bargain at £20.00. (anyone wanting the three Strauss SXLs PM me as I have a couple more I'd thrown in on a deal!).

    R. Strauss - Arabella (scenes), Schwarzkopf / Philharmonia / Von Matacic, Columbia 33CX 1226, mono (no stereo) EX/EX £6.00.

    R. Strauss - Death & Transfiguration / Four Last Songs, Janowitz / BPO / Karajan, DGG EX/EX £7.50.

    Rita Streich - Opera Recital (Puccini, Massenet, Gounod, Mozart etc), German DGG 'tulip', EX/EX £5.00.

    Tchaikovsky – Manfred Symphony, LSO / Previn, HMV ASD 3018, EX/EX aside from a very slight creasing to the cover, quite collectable £6.50.

    Verdi - Un Ballo In Maschera, Price RCA Italiana Opera & Chorus / Leinsdorf. Lovely early-60s deep-groove Decca-pressed RCA black-spot Dynagroove Stereo 3xLP box with libretto, grades at EX/EX aside from dealer ink stamp inside box £30.00.

    Verdi - Rigoletto, Scotto, Cossotto / Teatro Alla Scala / Kubelik, beautiful 1964 German DGG ‘tulip’ stereo 3xLP with gold-blocked cloth-covered box and hefty libretto, a really stunning item in EX/NM condition £45.00.

    Verdi – La Traviata, Cabslle, Bergonzi / RCA Italiana Opera Orchestra / Pretre, early 1960s US red label deep-groove RCA Victor stereo. The box has some splitting and top right corner damage, the vinyl has a couple of light marks, but is mostly EX, libretto present and EX. A nice vintage item, but priced down due to aforementioned issues £8.50.

    Verdi – Macbeth, Taddei, Nilsson / Accademia Di Santa Cecilia, Rome / Schippers, Decca SET 282-4, wide-band deep-groove, EX/EX throughout aside from a little light creasing to libretto £25.00.


    Decca Factory Sample/Test Pressings

    I currently have enough of these (many more to come) to merit a dedicated section! These are 1st pressings with a pink 'Factory sample' label and unless otherwise specified come with the full release album cover. They are very rare indeed as they were only issued for quality control and review purposes and can command very high prices indeed. I was very lucky landing these so can let them go at very competitive prices!

    Berlioz - Songs For Chorus, Davies / Norrington, Argo ZRG 635 test pressing, VG++/EX though missing libretto indicated on rear sleeve £10.00.

    Berlioz - Symphonie Fantastique, VPO/Haitink, Decca SXL6938 test pressing, no outer picture sleeve, vinyl EX £6.50.

    Anna Moffo - Arias From Faust, La Boheme etc, 2x 1-sided Decca pressed RCA Victor 'deep-groove' vinyl in release sleeve. This one is from another source to the rest here, it is much older and in less good condition. The sleeve is unstuck and a bit tatty with signs of a past sellotape attempt, the vinyl is a very respectable VG++ with some noticeable marking to the blank sides (my guess is they were stored back to back in the same inner sleeve for some period). Even so it is clearly an exceptionally rare item £10.00.

    Classical Box Set

    The vinyl in these box sets is in superb condition, my guess is that many people buy them and never get round to playing them more than once (just like me really…). The boxes are at worst showing some light edge / shelf wear, but no corner splits unless mentioned. All inserts / books are present and in EX condition, i.e. the operas all have (usually heavy!) librettos. Unless stated 2xLP £7.00, 3xLP £10.00, 4xLP £13.00, 5xLP £15.50.

    Verdi – Overtures & Preludes Complete, BPO / Karajan, DGG 2xLP.

    I'm taking some time out to think how best to adapt to the ongoing Covid 19 situation. Basically the shop is still theoretically open, but I'm not prepared to go to either the post office or the DPD drop point (I am in the high risk category health wise so this isn't random paranoia). I do actually have quite a lot of stuff waiting to list so may start adding stuff with the view of maybe offering courier collection as an option should anyone want it. All current piles will remain open (and can be added to) unless the customer non longer wants then/isn't prepared to wait this one out. If this is the case please let me know and I'll hoof the contents back into my 'in' tray for future re-listing.

    With the business model I run no one has paid for anything, there are no paid-for goods awaiting shipping, so there is no cost to the customer beyond inconvenience. My apologies anyway.

    Evening Tony, been ages since I've "piled" anything (sorry) not sure if my pile is even still there but if so could you please add:

    Gregorian Chant - Benedictine Monastery / Monserrat, DGG Archiv 2533 158, gf with inner leafs, some ageing to laminated sleeve.
    Gregorian Chant - Benedictine Monastery / Notre-Dame De Fontgombault, DGG Archiv 2533 359, gf with inner leafs, some ageing to laminated sleeve.

    Many thanks. I don’t seem to have a pile for you, I’ll start one with these two though.

    Can you remember what? I did flip a few things back into the ‘in tray’ a few months ago, but only things that had already run over a year prior to the covid lockdown in March 2020. I didn’t hoof out anything more recent than that.
