Hey we have a lot of classical vinyl record that have been handed down and we were wondering if you were interested in buying any thing. Inparticular we have ‘Piano at Twilight’ with Francois Chantal at the piano. It is one of our rarest records and yet we have two. It is listed as a $250 record and we are pricing it out according to their condition. That is how we are willing to price everything we have.
WAAAAY back in my life I had a vinyl album titled “Ports of Call” that featured music from several points around the world, including, as I recall, Hawaii and Tahiti. It may have been a Columbia release. Does this ring any bells?
Hey, I was wondering, were most pop 80’s albums recorded digitally or in analog? I am wondering how analog my 80’s vinyl records are. Is there a year, when the majority of pop recording began to be done digitally?
Zach, most stuff in the 80’s was still being done on analog. However, digital was starting to make it’s way into the studio with DAT (digital audio tape) machines.
If you look at some albums (usually more CD’s from later years though) you will sometimes see a box with DDD, ADD or AAD or some variation. AAD means that the recording was done Analog, the mixing was Analog, and the mastering was Digital. They are always in order so if a D is first, then you know that it was recorded digitally.
It’s hard to say when digital recording took over, but probably around the early to mid 90’s. However, many studios and old time engineers would still rather use analog tape to record the initial sessions.
Hello.I have a record 4 set Tchaikovsky 1812 overture.They are 78s and by Victor Red Lable Records.Arthur Fiedler,Conductor:Boston “pops” Orchestra.With the name Frank Decker on the cover by itself.#12411A IE (on 1st album)#12411B IE (on 2nd album)ect.
I can only find people selling the generic records that are just one album with a super small portion of the full Piece.I can not find anyone who can even apraise it or knows anything about the value.
Can you help or point me to someone who can.I have seen single albums going from $10.00-$100.00.But they are nothing compared to what I have.
I inherited from my aunt suitcases of vinyl records (99%) classical. I would like to sell all of them and started making a list. I asked information from different shops in Paris – it seems that some are worth a price.

It really depends on if it is a first pressing/issue or not. There is an original issue sealed copy of Zeppelin’s I on ebay for around $200. Most of what I’ve seen is around the $20 – $30 range though. Albums like these were issued for years, and they aren’t necessarily that old or rare.
Sorry, I don’t do torrents. If you really want to just listen to this, get a Spotify account. You can get one for free and listen to everything they have. Spotify has 13th Floor Elevators, not this album, but all four of their releases, including a live album.
I have a collection of about 150, 45 rpm, vinyl records from the 50’s and 60’s. I recently tried to insure them as a collection and assumed (incorrectly) that they’d all be listed in the current, “Goldmine Price Guide to 45 rpm records”.
It was very quickly obvious that over half the records I was looking up to establish their approximate, current, collectible market value were NOT LISTED.
Without some, reference to go by, there is no, dependable source from which I can establish the records’ replacement values. As an example, I have 5, Spike Jones records from the late 40’s to 1955 that I have no idea what they’re worth because I couldn’t find a catalogue mentioning their market values. Can you help?
I cannot get into the vinyl vs CD quality debate, but wanted to say how thrilled I am to find LP’s of my favorite groups from the 60’s and 70’s and to listen to them in their uncompressed, non-digitally remastered, original recordings….These are the recordings I remember, not the digital versions…this is what I object to the most is the massive re-processing of classic recordings..I just listened to Steely Dan’s “Gaucho” , and was amazed how good it sounded..and the album cost exactly $1 at a used CD store !
It’s interesting to hear that you would rather listen to the recording un-remastered and in the original sound.
Most of the time I can take those, but there are a few times when the original recordings are horrible and need that help, usually because their wasn’t much money to go to a good studio or get good equipment.
Steely Dan, however, has always had top notch recording and engineering in their albums. Some sound guys use their songs to test a sound system because of the range of sonic quality.
Although saying that you can’t get into the debate about LP’s vs CD’s, you just did. It really comes down do what you grew up with, are used to, and are able to enjoy.
Thanks for your comments,
The Classic Vinyl Record Guy
