    O/T Records you wish you had kept from your younger days.

    Mine would be The Undisputed Truth - Smiling Faces Sometimes originally by the Temptations but this version blows that out of the water.



    The Undisputed Truth were great band and recorded the original version of Papa Was A Rollin' Stone which in my opinion also blows the Temptations version out of the water.

    Midget Submarines by Swell which blows the Beatles Yellow Submarine out of the water.

    I didn't buy records when I was young but inherited a large collection of singles left at the Bridge Inn c 1963. Lost the lot in a house move. Worked in a record shop in 1970s and built up a large collection of LPs including some rare promotional ones. Lost all the covers in a house flood in 1999. Now I just d/l stuff onto my Ipod Classic 160GB. Not the same has having the records.

    Still got the original Sticky Fingers album with the the zip and artwork by Andy Warhol in a frame on the wall. Maybe not worth a great deal but one of the best albums of all time anyway.

    Interesting you mention that album, sota. It gave us great problems as the zip caused many copies to warp in storage or transport and we were forever having customers bring the damn thing back.

    Nice to know I'm not on my own when it comes to collecting records. currently have around 300+ singles after having a lot stolen in a house robbery a few years ago :-( I guess I'm lucky in a way that they didnt know the value of the records they took because they left the ones that are worth a few bob lol

    Records on the Stax label seem to be fetching a decent price.

    I don't think there's an easy answer. I have used Popsike.com in the past; if I remember right it lists actual sale prices achieved.

    Burl Ives has just been passed on in the family for the new arrival. Classic album from which each and everyone of us have enjoyed at least one of his songs

    Burl Ives was one of the greats. Fantastic voice - I like his rendition of Lavender Blue - and a quality actor; excellent in The Big Country.

    First record I bought, Best of Wizzard. Gave it away when I became too cool for glam rock. Realise now that Roy Wood wrote great rock n roll.
