Music Memorabilia & Vinyl Records Auction Highlights 23/24 February 2021
February 16 2021
Hoping this latest newsletter finds you well. We’re warming up here at Omega HQ, appreciating the extra light in the days and dreaming of the chance of a summer pint at the pub (cross those fingers!).
We catalogued at double speed throughout December and January to be able to bring you a truly excellent catalogue combining both music memorabilia and vinyl records which will take place across Feb 23rd/24th.
If you want to skip the spiel – you can VIEW THE CATALOGUE HERE – otherwise, look below for my (Dan’s) and Adnan’s picks for the sale...
ROLLING STONES 1965 CHELTENHAM ODEON POSTER – a real star of the show here! A stunning and fabulously rare poster for a nice and early Stone headline show. Condition and provenance both very impressive..
RADIOHEAD SKETCHPAD USED WHEN WRITING THE BENDS / A FENDER BASS USED IN RECORDINGS – Two exciting pieces here at lot 461 and 462 respectively, closing out the memorabilia sale. Following the worldwide press we secured for the unheard Radiohead demo we sold in January’s sale (£7,600 inc commission) here are two more fascinating bits of early Radiohead memorabilia – both consigned by someone who lent the group instruments for use in the sessions for ‘The Bends’.
ED SHEERAN SIGNED ORANGE ROOM CD – it’d be unwise to ignore the recent fantastic results we’ve had for some memorabilia items relating to more contemporary artists and we’d fully expect this lovely piece to do far better than the estimate!
HAPSHASH AND THE COLOURED COAT UFO COMING POSTER – ok, you’ve seen this one a thousand times. However – I am duty bound to alert you to it every time we sell one, because I truly believe the Hapshash designs of that period can’t be beaten. What a stunner.
DAVID OISTRAKH - BEETHOVEN VIOLIN SONATAS LPS (ORIGINAL UK STEREO PHILIPS RECORDINGS) - We have some superb Classical recordings in this auction, here's a set of scarce original UK stereo Philips recordings of the Soviet virtuoso performing Beethoven sonatas.
TINKERBELLS FAIRYDUST - TINKERBELLS FAIRYDUST LP (ORIGINAL UK STEREO PRESSING - DECCA SKL 5028) - The fabled unreleased eponymous LP from Tinkerbells Fairydust, this album really is like gold dust!
THE ROLLING STONES - THE ROLLING STONES (MFSL ORIGINAL MASTER RECORDING LP BOX SET - RC1) - The start of a mega run of high quality LP box sets in this fantastic sale, this legendary MFSL set from the Stones a must have to any collection...
RED DIRT - RED DIRT LP (ORIGINAL UK PRESSING - FONTANA STL 5540) The monster 1970 LP from Red Dirt will blow you away! Such a hard find...
That’s it for now, here’s what’s coming up in the next few months:
March 9th – Live From Liverpool – Rare and Collectable Vinyl Records
March 23rd – The Beatles Collection
