Record & CD Buying   Photo: Tim & me

You may be lucky enough to own some items of memorabilia that cannot be tangibly valued. Alternatively, you may have records in your collection that other people would pay to have. The Music Master Price Guide for Record Collectors and its follow-up, the Penguin Price Guide for Record & CD Collectors have a number of records listed by Tim Rose that are considered worth collecting. These are listed below, along with the price they are likely to sell at (in UK Pounds Sterling). The present exchange rate is approximately 1 = $1.60. The prices given are for vinyl albums in exceptionally good condition. Used second-hand albums ought to cost less, depending on supply & demand. In the last column, I've given the price these items are selling for on Gemm (see below for link). Some of these prices are extraordinary and should not be taken seriously. I have also listed CDs where they are becoming scarce.

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 above-named books or see if your valued possession is on sale at Gemm (see below).

If you are looking to obtain any albums by Tim, you might try your local record store for the CDs that have been re-released. 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 Tim Rose, either in vinyl format or CD by clicking on the Record Listing link below.
