The adventure mystery was considered to be a worldwide success when it was released in and the soundtrack, performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, was much praised by critics. However, certain records are worth a fair sum, and several feature in our ranking.
Have a look out for mono copies of the King's debut album. If you snapped up a vinyl copy of Marilyn Manson's fourth studio album, you're in luck. Jazz aficionados will pay a lot for hard-to-find gems such as this Latin fusion album by vibraphonist Bobby Paunetto.
You're looking for a six-ounce blue vinyl copy not hard to spot with a 6-eye label. Columbia switched to a 2-eye label in , making the former versions more valuable. The debut album of rockabilly band the Rock 'n Roll Trio, this LP had a big influence on the development of the genre.
Surprisingly valuable junk you might have at home. An iconic American punk record, this cult 7" single by the Pagans was released on Neck Reckords in Only are known to have been pressed, and mint copies are as rare as hen's teeth. Released on obscure Virginia label Megatone back in , this catchy single is considered one of the most desirable soul records.
Look out for that artwork and you could be in for a treat. During the s, mods in the north of England created a movement based around non-mainstream Motown-style music called Northern Soul. Collectors pay crazy sums of money for the most sought-after records, which include this dancefloor-filler by Washington DC's the Cashmeres.
Deathrock band Samhain released a limited-edition gray marbled version of their debut album Initium back in Another Blue Note rarity, the debut album of saxophonist J. Monterose is top of many a jazz record collector's wishlist. Like classic jazz and Northern Soul, rockabilly is another genre that attracts die-hard fans and avid collectors. Has anyone tried to put together precise information about the first appearance for each of the bonus tracks on the Deluxe sets?
I realize that's a difficult task - but I can't be the first one to attempt it Hep Alien likes this. This one has Jimmy Winston on lead vocals instead of Steve M.
Unfortunately the latter has escaped all official reissues so far incl. Location: The wilds of Northern England. There were several compilations of the Small Faces Decca material released in the early s on minor UK labels which were advertised as stereo when many of the tracks were only mixed in mono. So presumably they used fake stereo tracks.
An example of one of these compilations from discogs is shown below. If the true stereo Sha-La-La-La-Lee was released in , it could have been this German compilation and if it was available then it would almost certainly used on the stereo version of the Decca UK compilation the World Of Hits.

It's a daunting task for sure - I thought about attempting this but the research and all the discs a person would have to buy - not to mention the vinyl would be mind numbing - I fear. Rhett , Oct 24, What about this disc - is there anything exclusive to this compilation? I did a lot of digging today - concerning the two disc Deluxe Edition of the debut self titled "Small Faces" album on the Decca album.

With Marriott gone, the group needed a replacement singer and lead guitarist and divided up the two jobs, finding artists to fill them in Rod Stewart and Ron Wood. Immediate having sunk below the waves in a sea of long-delayed bankruptcy proceedings, the new group moved to the much bigger and more stable auspices of Warner Bros.
Records; the name " Small Faces " endured, attached to one Warner album before they officially morphed into Faces , an incarnation under which they went on to international glory for a time, before Rod Stewart finally eclipsed them as a solo act. During the mid-'70s, Small Faces reunited with a somewhat limited participation by Lane for two albums, Playmates and 78 in the Shade , that attracted a lot of press attention but nothing resembling the chart action of their earlier releases, and, like their '60s work, those records failed to find an audience in America, despite being released on Atlantic Records.
Ironically, at the very same time, the charts and the press on both sides of the Atlantic were filled by punk and power pop acts whose respective sounds and images often owed a huge amount to Small Faces ' groundbreaking work. Lane recorded with Pete Townshend , among others, before contracting multiple sclerosis, which ended his career as a musician he later organized the ARMS benefit concerts to raise money for research toward a cure for the disease. Jones subsequently joined the Who , having been recommended by Keith Moon as his replacement ahead of the legendary drummer's sudden death in , and did a couple of tours and a pair of albums with the band.
Marriott 's career languished a bit in the years that followed, but he always seemed poised for a comeback -- with that voice and history, he was always a potential contender for stardom -- and in it looked as though he was going to finally pull it off. Tragically, he died in his sleep when fire swept his home in England, just a couple of days after beginning work on a new album in America with his former bandmate Frampton.
Ronnie Lane died at his home in Trinidad, Colorado, on June 4, , after battling multiple sclerosis for nearly 20 years.
Small Faces ' catalog languished for a time, largely as a result of the bankruptcy of Immediate Records in Some of their stuff was reissued on vinyl in Canada in the early to mid-'70s, and later on reissue labels such as Compleat, but their legacy was generally in a shambles. That wasn't helped in the early part of the CD era when the licensors of the Immediate catalog sent out a lot of substandard masters, made from sources a long way from first-generation studio tapes, to their clients.
In , Sony Music Special Products became the first label to reissue any part of Small Faces ' catalog mastered from decent tapes, utilizing the duplicate masters that Immediate had furnished to Columbia Records -- the predecessor to Sony -- in the late '60s. At the same time, that tape research led to a massive amount of confusion -- evidently, in order to drive up fees from Columbia in America and other '60s licensees, Immediate issued undubbed backing tracks and unfinished outtakes with newly attached titles; even the surviving bandmembers were confused by some of these titles and tracks, though as of they were helping to sort out their real legacy, including a set of live television appearances released by NMC.
