I have a gauge about rare records that come into our department. Discogs can provide all kinds of information about a record, but I frequently find myself asking Garry Shrum about them for his personal memories. The man worked in record stores and conventions for decades, and when he says he’s never seen something, that […]
Coming up in our Beatles-focused auction on September 24 is an incredible portion removed from The Ed Sullivan Show set signed and doodled by the Fab Four. It was originally given to a fan when the show wrapped for the season, and it’s passed through a few hands before landing with us. It’s already safely […]

As we round the corner and get closer to the David Swartz vinyl auction on March 12-13, I think about “controversial” original album art. This was spurred on in my mind upon writing about the original, uncensored version of David Bowie’s classic LP, Diamond Dogs as well as this sealed Beatles’ stereo Butcher Cover. Things […]
