RECORD COLLECTOR RARE VINYL SERIES


Welcome to our range of rare vinyl, produced exclusively for 
Record Collector readers.
Why is a magazine pressing albums?
Well, it's a logical move for us. Like you, we know what we like. And we know how hard it is to find what we like. We too have been burnt by inferior reissues of rare records that turned out to be badly mastered or badly pressed. We are fully aware of the risks of shelling out a fortune for an original copy of a single or album that either turns out to be the wrong thing, a bootleg or in a condition that's “not as described”. Well, rather than moan we thought we would so something about it. Hence our Rare Vinyl Series.
Our first step was the release of Pussy's Pussy Plays, in September 2009. Our readers loved it and it sold out in a matter of months. It set a precedent for the Rare Vinyl Series. The idea is simple: do it right. Select a rare, highly sought after album - often a private pressing. Sign a deal with the original band or owners of the rights - this is all above board, not a dodgy pirate deal. Reproduce the original sleeve and label perfectly, right down to the paper quality - if there was no sleeve or no label, that's how it will have to be. If it was in a hand-made sleeve than we would make the sleeve by hand! Then seek out the best-possible source to master from, usually the original master tape if it survives. Produce a high-quality pressing to the highest standards. Talk to the artists concerned to get the full story behind the making of the record. And strictly limit the edition's numbers so that when it's all sold, there are no more to mysteriously appear on the market - when you buy a Record Collector album, it is not going to lose its value.
Each album is sent out with a certificate of authenticity signed by Ian Shirley, the Editor of the Rare Record Price Guide, who looks after the rare vinyl series, so you know it's the real deal.  
Our Rare Vinyl Series has gone from strength to strength over the past decade or so. We've pressed original material that was never issued - such as Wellington's Wellington and Cressida's Trapped In Time - The Lost Tapes - and found an equal hunger for this amazing, missing-in-action music. We've released a rare reggae LP by the Hippy Boys that sold out in less than a month, and even given away a punk EP to new subscribers. In June 2013 we launched Plankton - a killer compilation of Fruits De Mer material - that marked the opening of our Modern Collectables Series, which brings you the best of sought-after music from recent years.
The response to our records has been amazing, with the early albums fast becoming collectors' items!
Why is a magazine pressing albums? Because we're serious about music - and we know that you are serious about music too. So let's do it the right way, and finally allow you - and us - to delight in some of this truly great music that's languished unappreciated and unknown for decades.
