Back To Basics Vinyl Included in the list of 51 modern rarities for collectors

Recommended Posts



Christina Aguilera is among the unlikely inclusions in a new list of record releases worth a small fortune to collectors.

The What A Girl Wants warbler joins Muse, Gorillaz and Keane in the list of recent releases, most of them on vinyl, which change hands for hundreds of pounds.

Aguilera's Back To Basics release from just eight years ago - released alongside CD as a limited edition triple vinyl package - weighs in at £100.

Record Collector editor Ian McCann said: 'It's common knowledge that some Beatles records can be worth a packet, and that you should never throw out original rock albums from the 1960s and 70s without finding out whether they are valuable.

'But few people realise that more recent vinyl albums can also be highly collectable, with fans desperate to obtain copies of albums by the likes of Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys and Keane as they were only pressed in very limited numbers because most buyers wanted these albums on CD or as downloads.

'It's about supply and demand: the print run was low, and demand is now high.'


The list of 51 modern rarities, dubbed 'New Money' by Record Collector magazine, includes the début Muse album Showbiz, Keane's first album Hopes And Fears and Demon Days by Gorillaz, also each valued at £100 on vinyl.

OMG Record Collector is an amazing magazine!

They have those prices and addresses for the stores and links with free legal download.


100 pounds is a bit low though, I saw it on ebay for more than 200!


Yeah it will be worth hundred
