Time out! The new realities of collectible LPs.
Considering selling your LP collection? Because All That Music & Video is the most important seller and buyer of new and used vinyl records in the region, you will want to bring them to us first! Just be advised that although demand for collectible vinyl has increased, potential supply has grown at an even greater rate. Tough economic times have resulted in our staff evaluating many more collections than ever before. This overabundance of vinyl has made it more difficult for us to cull through and find true treasures in large collections.
Still, as a service to our customers, ATMV is happy to offer sellers free appraisals of their LP collections. We will grade, sort, and appraise your LPs as our time permits. Please be patient, however. There are always collections in the appraisal process ahead of yours. We now appraise as many as 1,500 per week. For us, this is costly, time-consuming work that takes great attention to detail. Many of these albums we are just not prepared to purchase. We will get to yours as fast as possible to give you a fair and honest appraisal.
ATMV’s store space devoted to vinyl has increased and continues to increase. But sales in our retail vinyl section do not move fast enough to keep pace with the overwhelming volume of vinyl we have in retail bins and in inventory.
Thankfully, the obsolescence of vinyl predicted with the advent of CD technology in the ‘80s has proved completely false. LPs began making a comeback thanks to their use by Hip Hop DJs. Also, some rock bands have continued to release their music on vinyl as well as CD. There is also a market composed of collectors, young and old, who appreciate the look, feel and analog sound quality of vinyl LPs.
There are some things you should know about selling your LPs. ATMV will give you the best price possible for LPs that have some value. However, we ask our customers to be realistic about the value of their record collections. Sometimes, there are just too many copies of some records available for sale, and not enough buyers. Consider the fact that we presently have more than 40,000 records in storage. Many of these are multiples of some of the records you may be selling. We accumulate so many used records that periodically we throw out the duplicate copies and keep only the better ones. However, since we’ve been a great resource for vinyl collectors for more than three decades, we still seek quality LPs that may turn up.
Sometimes, sellers bring us collections with many LPs in good condition by in-demand artists. More often, though, a collection of 100 records may contain perhaps only a few items that may still hold some commercial appeal to our very selective customer base. The rest, while at one-time perhaps bona fide best sellers, are now no longer of interest to our buyers. Frequently, these customers will replace their worn or damaged LPs that are commonplace with CD versions. They’re shopping for true treasures, particularly Rock and R&B classics.
For vinyl collectors, the general condition of LPs and cover are extremely important. Record value can be compared to postage stamp & coin collecting standards. That is, the better the condition, the better odds the item will have any value. The important difference to this comparison is this: Just because the LP is in good condition, doesn’t necessarily mean it has any value or collectability. Many LPs which were never or rarely played were not destined to be classics in the first place. If your LPs are rare, but were played and enjoyed frequently, chances are the album has suffered from moderate to serious wear & tear. On the other hand, if the LP is a historic critically acclaimed item, and has been meticulously cared for with minimal play, then there is a chance it could be worth something. That is, of course, if it is not a commonly available recording.
Hope you’ve gotten a better understanding of our appraisal process. Don’t be disappointed with our bid. Be realistic. We recommend that you keep any records that have emotional or sentimental value to you, because generally speaking, 90% of the LPs in any collection are common and have little or no value. For those, we can only pay out pennies, nickels, and dimes at best. The other 10% may have a value of 25 cents to a dollar. True collectibles may command $5 to $25 dollars at the wholesale level.
Thanks for considering All That Music & Video for the most honest and fair appraisal of your LPs!
LP Demand – “Studs & Duds”
“Studs” (Sought-After Artists on LP)
The artists below are only a sampling of many LP’s that are in demand.
Generally speaking, any Rock ‘n Roll, Psycaldelic, Punk, R&B, or Chicano Rock LP from the (50’s-80’s) era, are high in-demand. The edgier, more obscure, or rarer – the better.
“Duds” (Least Sought-After Artists on LP)
The artists below are only a sampling of many LP’s that are not in demand. Often many of these types of records are routinely abandoned or donated. We cannot pay cash on many of the artists on this list.
Generally speaking, any Classical, string, house orchestra, instrumental, or no-name budget LPs from the 60s-70s also fall into this category.
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers-”Mojo”
It was once said that “the longer you live, the better you get.” In recording Mojo, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers took to the studio in a way they hadn’t done before (at least to such an extent); not only did the group go into recording the album with an entirely blank canvas—the decision was made to go into Mojo without any demos in hand—but much of the album was essentially recorded live: no headphones, each member facing each other while they played out their ideas. Speaking to Greg Kot of the Chicago Tribune, Petty shed some light on the process, “This is a record we couldn’t have made in the ’70s and ’80s because we weren’t really good enough as musicians.” He continued, “We’re using our age as a plus in this sense, in that we’ve become better musicians.” It would seem that Petty would agree with the statement of aging gracefully, if only in terms of he and his band’s musical evolution. And if Mojo is the evidence that we have to either confirm or deny whether Petty and the Heartbreakers have gotten better or worse with age, it would seem wholeheartedly irrational to argue the latter.
In 2006 Tom Petty released his third solo album, and first in over a decade, Highway Companion. That same year a number of other veteran acts (Young, Springsteen, the Who, Frampton, John, Meat Loaf, etc.) joined Petty in releasing new material, though the majority of the releases proved the initial quote to have plenty of exceptions. It’s fitting that those aforementioned words were muttered by Bob Dylan as he also released an album in 2006 (Modern Times); one that serves up even more evidence supporting the quote. While Highway Companion was expectedly strong, the album eventually claimed spots on a myriad of year end lists, it doesn’t resonate in the same way as Mojo; which might, once again, relate to Bob Dylan. Further along in his interview with Kot, Petty revealed the prime influence on Mojo, “For the last 10, 11 years, I’ve been immersed in blues. That’s what I listen to all the time and we got caught up in that vibe on this record.” It might be a bit of a stretch, but Dylan’s last two albums (or at least the last two albums that weren’t nut-bar crazy) also cracked at the seams with the blues. Putting the similarities to Dylan and the focus on the blues aside for a moment however, the album actually does have its fair share of tracks that sound like the Heartbreakers of old; even if Mojo‘s opening song is titled “Jefferson Jericho Blues.”
About Tinashe, in his own words.
I was originally shipped over from Zimbabwe so I could eventually grow to become a doctor/lawyer and wire money back home via Western Union, that didn’t go so well… I blame/thank MJ.
I smiled & nodded to avoid bullying over my African accent at school until the Eastenders elocution lessons started to pay off… I can now slip in between both rather seamlessly… I grew up in Hackney. I will always be a Hackney boy but I’m enjoying being in a state of flux. Life is bigger than London.
I’m currently more in love with my guitar than I have ever been. I make guitar music. I am not ashamed to say l love pop music. That’s what its all about for me. Good music fuelled by the world around me.
Los Angeles—Anticipation is high for the early 2010 release of “Keep On Movin’,” the much-whispered about debut CD from Tommy Mora. While Tommy has earned his stripes as a respected guitarist and band leader, studio engineer to the stars, and musical director for Grammy presentations, this CD bristles with the rock, blues and funk that have become Tommy Mora’s trademark.
Whether urging the listener to “Live It Up” by following your dreams with a solid bed of guitar that recalls when we weren’t afraid to rock, or reflecting on his Southwestern heritage for letting us know he is “On His Way” in a power rock rumba that is part flamenco, part Norteño, but still truly rock and roll. While the sound is fresh and contemporary, it harkens to the roots where rock and roll came from. After all, “Old school is the ONLY school, you either went to school or you didn’t.” Tommy has the distinction of not only being an “A” student, but a fully-tenured professor.
“Going Down To The Border” gives a nod to the Chicano funk rock that was born in the ‘70’s brought to the mainstream by Carlos Santana, which has always been a staple of Tommy’s repertoire, fused with Hendrix/Zeppelin. “Tell Me” shows the influence of another seminal Texan, Freddy Fender. The CD title track “Keep On Movin” is a tribute to his Mother who recently passed away and underscores the message of moving on even with the loss of a very special loved one. Thus, is the title of the CD.
From beginning to end, all 13 tracks from “Keep On Movin” rock and groove and bump-she-bumps in the manner that only a true veteran of both the English and Spanish rock scenes could conceive and deliver After all, Mr. Mora has served as recording engineer for cliental ranging from Prince, to Jennifer Lopez, to Al Green, while acting as musical director for Alejandro Fernandez at the Latin Grammys.
Long regarded as one of the best live acts in the spread between Los Angeles and El Paso, the legion of Tommy Mora fans soon will have what they have been asking for—the CD that captures this incredible musician’s live energy, Chicano soul, and catchy songs. In his debut CD, Tommy again and again proves the era of the guitar hero has not died, but just been re-defined. Are you ready for “Keep On Movin” from RMC Records? It will remind you of what rock was meant to be.
