  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

    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 – 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 will consider offers/trades.


    Bach – Christmas Oratorio / Magnificat / Cantatas (BWV61, 121, 64, 171, 65, 124, 111, 1, 182, 4), Municher Bach Choir & Orchestra / Richter, DGG Archiv 11xLP box EX/EX throughout £35.00.


    Bach – Cantatas 80 & 87, Reichelt, Topper / Orchestra de Chambre de Pforzheim / Werner, 1959 French mono Erato original, grades at a VG+/VG++ due to some general ageing, but it's a nice old thing and has it's stapled insert £5.00.


    Bach - Der Streit Zwischen Phoebus Und Pan / Dramma Per Musica / Cantata BMV 201, Bach Collegium, Stuttgart / Rilling, US Nonesuch EX/EX with small deletion / import cut to sleeve £5.00


    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.


    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/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.


    Bruckner - Symphonies 1-9, Te Drum, BPO / Jochum, DGG 11xLP box, EX/EX aside from one small scuff to box £35.00.


    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.


    Delius - Requiem, Harper / RPO / Davies, HMV ASD 2397. Really nice clean 'red-semi' 1st issue with laminated flip-back sleeve that grades at a strong EX/EX throughout. £10.00.


    Dowland – Songs And Arias, Canttelo, Noorman / Consort Of Instruments / Leppard, Nonesuch, EX/EX aside from small deletion cut to sleeve £6.00.


    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.


    Dvorak – Symphony 8, LSO / Kertesz, Decca SXL 6044 wide-band deep-groove SXL 6273 in very nice EX/EX condition aside from a couple of very slight creases to the laminated flip-back sleeve, non-original Goldring inner, no doubt replaced as the original Decca ones can be problematic to the record surface £20.00.


    Elgar - Cello Concerto / Sea Pictures, Du Pre, Baker / LSO / Barbirolli, HMV ASD 'bw stamp' issue, but nice early one with front laminated sleeve. EX/EX £10.00.


    Elgar - Cello Concerto / Enigma Variations, Du Pre / Philadelphia Orchestra / Barenboim, CBS VG++/EX £6.50.


    Elgar - Violin Concerto, Menuhin / LSO / Elgar, HMV ALP 1456 mono (col stamp label), laminated flip-back sleeve, EX/EX £5.00.


    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.


    Franck - Symphony in D Major / Variations for Piano & Orch, Roge / Cleveland Orchestra / Maazel, Decca SXL 6823 EX/EX £5.00.


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

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


    Gregorian Chants: Salve Festa Dies, The Benedictine Monks Of Clervaux, Philips 6580 061, EX/EX £7.50.


    Grieg / Franck - Piano Concerto / Symphonic Variations, Scherzo, Curzon, Decca SXL 2173 'wide-band' second issue (not deep-groove), VG+ (slight damage to bottom rear sleeve)/EX £8.50.


    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.


    Haydn / Bach - Overture In D Major etc / Harpsichord Concerto In A, Malcolm / AOSMITF / Marinner, Decca SXL 6385 wide-band, EX/VG++ £7.50.


    Haydn / Beethoven - Folk Songs Of The British Isles, Griffett, Maier, Mandalka, Tracey, Harmonia Mundi 1C 069-99 940. Nice item in gatefold sleeve with stapled-in libretto, EX/EX throughout £6.00.


    Khachaturian - Highlights Ballets Spartacus & Gayaneh, LSO / Khachaturian, HMV ASD 3347 stereo / SQ4 EX/EX £5.00.


    Lalo / Saint-Saens – Symphony Espagnole. Menuhin / Philharmonia / Goossens. Lovely 60s second issue on the 'red-semi' with laminated flip-back sleeve and cool gold 'EMI Stereophonic' sticker, matrixes are A2/B1 so a very early copy, book value of this issue is £20, this beautiful strong EX/EX copy £12.50.


    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 Masjor, Francescati / NY Philharmonic / Mitropulos, lovely early Philips ABL3159 mono, nice EX/EX £6.50.


    Monteverdi – L'Incoronazione Di Poppea (abridged, edited By Raymond Leppard), Laszlo, lewis / Clyndebourne Festival Chorus / RPO / Prichard, 2xLP, HMV Angel SAN 126/7. Lovely double album in seriously heavyweight laminated gatefold sleeve with libretto. This is the scarce 1964 original issue on the gold label with white 'Nipper' and Angel logos, a beautiful item in EX/EX to NM condition, the only possible area to mark down is a little very light age-discolouration inside the gatefold, the vinyl is just immaculate £20.00.


    Mozart - The Chamber Music For Strings, Quartet Italiano. Monster 15xLP box set on Philips, part 9 of The Complete Mozart edition, but self-contained as it is the string quartets. Grades at VG+ for the box (just a little shelf-wear) and EX for the vinyl. Priced without VPI cleaning due to size, though I will do it for an additional fee (it is very clean as is, I bet a fair bit is unplayed) £35.00. Very heavy!


    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.


    Rachmaninov / Dohnanyi – Rhapsody On A Theme Of Paganini / Variations On A Nursery Tune, Katchen / LPO / Boult, Decca wide-band deep-groove SXL2176, scarce, but this one is a bit battle scarred, the front-laminated sleeve has a small sticker on rear (futile to attempt removal due to cover ageing) and the vinyl has some light marks, so a VG+ throughout £8.50.


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


    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.


    Smetana - String Quartets, Smetana Quartet, Supraphon stereo/SQ, VG+/EX (small sticker mark to rear sleeve) £5.00.


    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 And Transfiguration / Four Last Songs, Janowitz / BPO / Karajan, DGG (UK pressing) in EX/EX condition £6.00.

    Tchaikovsky – Symphony No. 1, New Philharmonic Orchestra / Muti, HMV ASD 3213, original BW-band SQ issue £5.00.


    Tchaikovsky - Symphony 4, BPO/Karajan, DGG ’tulip’, slight corner ding to cover, otherwise EX/EX £4.50.


    Tchaikovsky - Symphony 6 "Pathetique", Chicago SO / Levine, RCA Red Seal Digital Teldec / Europadisk Audiophile Pressing, NOS still factory sealed £10.00.


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


    Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto 1, Dichter / Boston Symphony / Leinsdorf, UK deep-groove ‘black spot’ RCA RB-6707 mono, nice VG++/VG++ £5.00.


    Vaughn Williams - A London Symphony, LPO / Boult, HMV ASD 2740 bw band, immaculate NM/NM copy £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 £35.00.


    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.


    Various


    In Dulci Jubilo: Polychoral Music From Venice And Germany, works by Gabrieli, Praetorius etc, Winchester Cathedral Choir, London Cornet And Sackbut Ensemble / Neary, HMV Digital, gatefold £5.00.


    Anna Moffo - The New Golden Age Of Singing: Arias from Faust. La Boheme, Dinorah, Carmen etc. UK Decca-pressed RCA SB-2156 2x one-sided ‘deep-groove’ factory sample test pressings in release sleeve. The laminated flip-back sleeve is rather tatty, the flip-backs clearly came unstuck and someone attempted repair with sellotape (and should therefor be executed by firing squad), though to be honest the sleeve may not even be original as these test pressings usually went out before the artwork was ready. The two playing sides are in EX condition, the blank sides are a bit tatty say a VG+, I suspect they have been stored back to back in the same sleeve at some point. A very hard item to value as it is possibly the only one in existence and ‘deep groove’ Decca test pressings are very, very sought-after, but given it’s not mint I’ll let it go for £40.00, which is no more than a typical modern audiophile cut!


    Itzhak Perlman - 4 Violin Concertos (Dvorak, Bruch, Paganini, Mendelssohn) German HMV 3xLP box with insert, EX/EX aside from slight crease on insert £15.00.


    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.


    Chopin - Piano Works Vol 9 (Ballad OP38, 24 Preludes etc), Ashkenazy Decca SXL 6877 test pressing EX/EX £12.50.

    Handel - Messiah, AoSMITF / Marriner, Argo D18D3, 3xLP in full release box with insert VG+/EX (some wear and slight staining to insert, light scuff on one side that shouldn't sound) £20.00.


    Maynard - The XII Wonders Of The World 1611 / Character Songs, Consort Of Musicke, L'Oiseau Lyre DSL0 545 EX/EX £10.00.

    *Saint-Saens / Chausson / Ravel - Introduction Et Rondo Capriccioso / Poeme / Tzigane, Kung-Wha Chung / RPO / Dutoit, Decca SLX 6851 test pressing VG++/EX (just a little age discolouration to rear sleeve and a couple of very light spine creases) a very rare SXL to start with! £30.00.


    Schumann / Schubert - Carnival / Sonata In A Major, de Larrocha, Decca SXL 6910 test pressing EX/EX £15.00.


    Tchaikovsky - Symphony 6, RPO / Cord, Decca SXL 6894 test pressing, EX/EX £15.00.

    Wagner - Joan Sutherland Sings..., National Philharmonic Orchestra / Bonynge, Decca SXL 6930 test pressing EX/EX aside from slight yellowing to rear sleeve £12.50.


    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 – Falstaff, Fischer-Dieskau / VPO / Bernstein, CBS 3xLP 1966 UK 1st press with textured blue labels, some very light surface bruising, I think from chemical transfer from the old poly inners, but nothing to worry about now it's cleaned and re-sleeved, a nice item.
