Unknown artist, unknown album steals the show at Record Planet

November 16 2019

We saw some amazing results at our bi-annual ‘Live From Utrecht’ sale of rare and collectable vinyl records. A packed room at the Record Planet fair, together with two phone lines and a plethora of online bidders worldwide, fought it out to take home 100 lots of carefully chosen vinyl records. 

The biggest success story of the day has to be a whopping £3,400 (estimate £200-£400) achieved for lot 35, an unknown album by an unknown artist!

When the record came to us, the vendor had no idea what it was, having discovered it as part of a job lot of records he purchased. Our vinyl specialist Adnan noticed it in the box, did some serious research and discovered it was a forgotten release on the hugely collectable 'Eden' label. We expected plenty of interest but were blown away by the result, which saw two bidders going hammer and tongs to claim the record!

Other notable results (all shown including Buyer Premium) -

  • £4,950 from an estimate of £1,000 - £1,500 for a beautiful copy of Ithaca - A Game For All Who Know (Merlin HF 6)
  • £3,200 from an estimate of £1,000 - £1,500 for the self titled Wil Malone LP (Fontana STL 5541)
  • £1,240 for a complete ‘SPOTS’ copy of Sex Pistols - Never Mind The Bollocks from a £300 - £500 estimate. 
  • £1,200 for the very rare ‘Pharoahs’ EP on Decca from a £600 - £800 estimate.
