How To Find Rare Records
People are always asking me where to find rare items. Here are some suggestions! If you use these links and buy something, I will earn a small commission which will go toward the cost of maintaining this site. Of course, you are still more than welcome to write to me with questions about rare records!
For rare items, there is no better place to look than GEMM, where you can search the catalogs of music sellers from all over the world.
For items that are currently available, try Amazon.com:
DISCLAIMER: I am not a record company or A&R man. I am a music historian and record collector and have no connection to Charisma, Virgin, EMI, or any related entities. This website is a tribute to a record company that released its final records in 1986, so don't ask me where to send your demo tape unless you just feel like sending me some free music!
