    Default Record Valuation Help...

    Ok, so basically a friend of mine just moved into a new place there recently where the previous owner had for whatever reason, left a huge collection of old classical vinyl records (12" I think - not too exactly a pro on this stuff ) lying in the attic. My mate, not being into classical music whatsoever, nor a collector of vinyl, is looking to sell these on if they are of any worth. So he gave me a list of some of them in hopes I could help find him a buyer or rough valuation.

    Basically I am looking for help from anybody who might know if any of this stuff is of value, or could help point out how to spot if a classical music record is worth much, seeing as we collectively know all but nothing about composers, conductors, etc beyond a few obvious names. We also struggled to find publication dates on the sleeves on most of the stuff... anybody know if that adds to the value and/or where the hell you find it?

    He sent me a list of what he has put together so far, and they were all very well stored away from dust and on their sides (of course). some are missing important details, but he seemed to be paying mroe attention towards the end of the list...

    I think it might be the Philharmonia Orchestra.
