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 vinyls than they do CDs 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 forgot that you own. We used to hear stories of people throwing their old collection of vinyl records into skips and bins and we can positively say that it’s time to see if they are still there.
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 and has recently filmed a piece for BBC One about the subject. 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, Reggae, Soul, 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.
