Is there a definitive rare classical vinyl guide

Post by Gerry » Tue Apr 24, 2018 5:53 pm

Firstly thank you for accepting my request.

I have recently been left a large collection of old classical vinyl and have been wading through the collection very slowly but I'm getting there. :D

Although I have one recording that I cannot find anywhere I can find pictures of the artwork but no sign of ANY hard copies and I have searched all of the obvious sites, no sign of for sale either.

My question is there a definitive guide online to search for rare classical vinyl? because I've been looking for 3 days but to no avail

The recording in question is The 1924 D'Oyly Carte Princess Ida (on His masters voice) Cat No.D977 to D986 (a 10 piece 78rp album collection)

I'm completely stumped so any advice would be gratefully appreciated.

Best Wishes


Gerry.

Welcome to the Guild Gerry. Classical LP's vary in price from worthless to valuable. Unfortunately they tend to be toward the worthless end of the scale. However, some can bring a few bucks if you can find the right collector. Below is a link to Popsike.com that has a little rough version of Princess Ida going for over $90 US. Remember that condition is everything. Searching Ebay sold listings will give you an idea of current value. Popsike searches past Ebay auctions that sold for higher value. Good luck!
