SB & Q: Values & Buying

Sutherland Brothers & Quiver from the Beat of the Street album cover

 

 

The Sutherland Brothers & Quiver albums do not feature in any of the "Record Values" books that I own. They have tended to be easily available in vinyl format from the regular resellers - Gemm, Music Stack, eBay, etc. You can pick up a number of the band's singles for around 2 ($3) each, although the band's early life (as New Generation) has singles selling now for up to 40. Vinyl versions of albums are fairly easily obtainable at sensible prices. However, some of the CD releases are now out of print and copies have become quite rare.

Below is a listing of some of the LPs and CDs that are on sale from various sellers, with examples of their prices in January 2011. These prices are in Pounds Sterling. The present exchange rate is approximately 1 = $1.60. The prices given are for albums in good condition. Second-hand albums with damaged or marked sleeves ought to cost less, depending on supply & demand. I've given the price these items are selling for on Gemm, Music Stack, eBay and Amazon (see below for links). Some of these prices are extraordinary or outrageous and should not be taken seriously, although they are absolutely genuine. I've listed the dearest one I've seen in the Excess Prices column.

The CD prices are those for the Columbia CDs that were issued in the period 2000-2003 and not the ones currently being reissued by Talking Elephant Records, which can be obtained at regular prices.

Please note that I am not an expert in record values and there is no point in e-mailing me to ask what the value is of an old 78 you found in your grandmother's attic or an Elvis picture disc that you've had since the 70s. The answer is: I don't know. If you want this information, go to a dealer, buy one of the dedicated books or see if your valued possession is on sale at Gemm (see below).

If you are looking to obtain any albums by SB&Q, you might try your local record store for the CDs that have been re-released by CBS, etc. The biggest range of new material on the web will be available from Amazon. If you click on the link to Amazon below, I get a small kick-back that goes towards the 230 a year it costs to run this website.

Alternatively, www.magpiedirect.com and http://www.blahdvd.com have good websites and are reliable retailers with an interest in older material. Other retailers that might help are www.hmv.co.uk, www.101cd.com and www.towerrecords.co.uk while if you are looking for a non-UK site, try www.cdwow.com or even www.amazon.com as the biggest retailers.

For second hand albums (vinyl and CD), many people have managed to get lucky by bidding on www.ebay.com, while the biggest collectives of second hand dealers are www.gemm.com and www.musicstack.com. I would also try:

 

www.secondspin.com   www.funrecords.de   www.action-records.co.uk
www.musicobsession.com   www.spincds.com   www.musicbuyingfreak.com
         

Remember, you can get a full listing of all the albums released by SB&Q and individual members, either in vinyl format or CD by clicking on the Record Listings link below.
