From Billy Nicholls to Sally Cinnamon in Omega's 13th April Sale
April 01 2021
Dear friends of Omega, hoping you’re all doing well and enjoying the longer days.
We’re getting through 2021 at a fair old clip and have been happy to welcome ever more buyers and sellers to the fold, with numbers swelling auction by auction. We’ve had six successful ones already in the year so far and now here’s another fantastic one to tell you about.
On 13th April we’ll hold a ‘Rare and Collectable’ vinyl auction – closer to our typical date for the sale we usually conduct at the wonderful Record Planet fair in Utrecht and similar in format.
It’s a compact affair with some seriously interesting items across the 150 lots. Here’s Adnan as ever to big up his picks..
LOT 147: HAWKWIND - HURRY ON SUNDOWN 7" (ORIGINAL UK DEMO - LIBERTY LBF 15382 - WITH PROMO FLYER). Extremely well stored original UK demo of the debut 7" cut from Hawkwind, this copy complete with the promo original flyer that we've never seen before!
LOT 125: OASIS - OASIS (2009 LP BOX SET - RKIDBOX 58 - NUMBER 0322). Now listen up, here's an essential addition to any Oasis collection - here's the strictly limited edition 2009 box set featuring the studio back-catalogue as well as the king of all B-side albums The Masterplan. I Hope, I Think, I Know this is one to go for!
LOT 75: THE STONE ROSES - SALLY CINNAMON 12" (ORIGINAL UK PRESSING WITH PRESS RELEASE/PROMO MATERIAL - FM REVOLVER 12 REV 36). Staying in Manchester, here's a simply superb original copy of Sally Cinnamon, this copy complete with scarcely seen promo bits!
Lot 109: BILLY NICHOLLS - WOULD YOU BELIEVE LP (ORIGINAL UK PRESSING - IMMEDIATE IMCP 009). The fabled commercially unreleased '68 masterpiece from Billy Nicholls - this indeed one of the few original copies on Immediate that are still in existence..
LOT 26: DEMON FUZZ - AFREAKA! (ORIGINAL UK PRESSING - DAWN DNLS 3013). Get captivated by some monster Afrobeat with the totally killer 1970 LP from Demon Fuzz - absolutely wicked grooves here.
As ever – we do appreciate the difficulties in buying without being able to view and are looking forward to welcoming you back as soon as it is safe / legal to do so but in the meantime please don’t hesitate to contact us with specific queries, we’re always happy to advise.
Best wishes from sunny Merseyside
