Future Collectables: Record Shop In-Store Promotional Displays Just landed at Eil Towers is a vast 30 year archive of record shop ?in store? displays, you know the things....life size cut-outs of your favourite artist, posters, album artwork, which, if not taking pride of place in the shop window, would have been placed strategically around the store, all designed to make you part with your hard earned cash!
Unless you were like me and made a bit of a nuisance of yourself asking the shop manager, "please can I have that Pixies poster" (yes I was that sad), these items remained elusive, tantalisingly close and, most importantly, never commercially available, resulting in quite a surge in recent years in their all-round collectability - finding them in decent shape is no mean feat either.
We?ve got a huge amount we?re working through with some top-notch artists including; David Bowie, Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd, Bruce Springsteen, The Smiths and loads, loads more....
Keep checking back here to see what?s being added - or tell us what you?re looking for?

Rare collection of library LPs We recently acquired a superb collection of library LPs from some of the genre's leading labels; Boosey & Hawkes, Standard Music Library, Studio G, Ohm and KPM. Library records were a response to a growing need from television and theatre for music that could be used to accompany productions without copyright restrictions, in recent years these recordings have become particularly collectible, from beat hungry bedroom producers eager to find sample friendly material or to those simply seeking out new musical thrills. Although some of the albums were made by artists who recorded under their own name or as part of a band, (Michael Chapman, The Third Ear Band), the majority were made by those who seldom saw the limelight, these top session musicians were able to create music that explored all manner of genres and styles, including jazz, classical, pop, hard rock and funk, not forgetting the pioneering use of electronics created by members of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop - you name the style, jobbing library musicians would be asked to re-create it!

THE Collection to wrap up 2013 That's pretty much my first reaction to this latest collection of late sixties to early seventies and beyond treats. Speechless. Not content with a near 'as new' legendary Tintern Abbey single, this is an Aladdin's cave that only surfaces very rarely. Almost every other album is a rare jewel in astonishing condition. A one owner collection with most being purchased from new, some even having period reviews affixed to the paper inners. A collection owned by someone who obviously cared deeply for their albums. A collection now looking for a new owner who will be just as careful with them in the future.
