The top catchy purchases [in my mind] for collectors keen on putting their money in vinyl records. Some of these fetch more than others but they are all good tunes to have in your record player -if you can find them.
1. SEX PISTOLS -God Save The Queen 1977: This music makes me wanna jump around and play the drums.
2. HANK MOBLEY- Hank Mobley 1957: This Blue Note Label release is jazz at its finest. I never really listened to Hank before this week and now I am hooked on his soulful sounds. What an amazing jazz saxophonist! This is my personal #2 fav.
3. THE BEATLES- Please Please Me 1963: Come on Come on, Come on, Come on, please, please me and listen to this song. Anything Beatles is very collectible in my mind but this 63 release is the best.
4. WIL MALONE- Wil Malone 1970: Ultra rare. Apparently it was only available for two months. One word, psychedelic. I have a couple friends who would find this their cup of tea.
5. THE ROLLING STONES – The Rolling Stones 1964: Some firm rock sound! Just like the Beatles anything Rolling Stones goes.
6. LED ZEPPELIN -Led Zeppelin 1969: I listened to this full album tonight. Feels like a fusion of heavy rock with the blues. This is my personal #1 fav.
7. BOB DYLAN’S “THE FREEWHEELIN’ BOB DYLAN” album (1963): Some of the best songs ever! This is my personal #3 fav.
8. PINK FLOYD -A SAUCERFUL OF SECRETS 1967: Excellent album! Seems like some solid relaxing music.
9. BLACK SABBATH – MASTER OF REALITY 1971: My dad would be proud to see this one the list! I had to add it. Tonight I listened to the full album via my good friend You Tube and I must say this is some catchy stuff.
10. ACETATE LP by VELVET UNDERGROUND and NICO (1966): Quite interesting music, I must say. Sold for 25K on eBay recently.
Some honourable mentions:
ELVIS PRESLEY’S “GOOD LUCK CHARM” SINGLE (1962) and ELVIS PRESLEY’S “STAY AWAY, JOE” promotional album (1967): If you are an Elvis fan I am sure you have played these songs before.
DR Z -THREE PARTS TO MY SOUL 1971: One of the most rare ” Vertigo Swirls”. Only 60-75 sold. An excellent add-on to any prog rock music collection.
THE OPEN MIND- THE OPEN MIND 1969: This is a great example of the scarce LP. Tons of rhythm.
AGINCOURT FLY AWAY – 1970: Just 99 copies were ever pressed. Some good piano playing and soft singing here.
MR MAGIC Kazoo’s – DANCE TO THE DRUMMER’S BEAT 1982: Beats, beats and more beats. Some catchy party music.
FRANK WILSON’S – DO I LOVE YOU?” (1965): Some soul!
This is my music list above. Don’t fret if your personal preference didn’t make the list – the list goes on…
