The vinyl revival is alive and kicking and at Wessex Auction Rooms we have experienced this first hand over the last few years. With major high street shops and supermarkets stocking more vinyl records than any other format, there is clearly a new young breed of collector searching for original releases from greats like The Beatles, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin as well as rarities from more obscure bands and artists that you may even have forgotten that you own. Now is definitely the time to get in the attic, dig out the vintage record case and see what treasures might be hidden away waiting for their new lease of life!
Wessex Auction Rooms are one of the UK's leading auctioneers of vinyl records and our specialist department is headed up by Director & Auctioneer Martin Hughes who is himself an avid collector. Martin regularly contributes editorial to various magazines and websites about vinyl collecting including BBC One, BBC 6 Music, ITV and many others. Our vinyl auctions cover many genres & sub-genres, with the most desirable records being LPs & 45s from the 1960’s onwards from the world of Rock, Pop, Blues, Punk, Prog, Reggae, Northern Soul, Folk, Indie and Jazz. So jump in your Yellow Submarine or hail a Newspaper Taxi and let us find some treasures in your old collection.
