4.0 out of 5 stars RC Guide 2010 - A synopsis...
Generally an excellent price guide, has improved a lot in the last few editions with the addition of some lovely colour images or rare items, especially depicting some wonderful sleeves.

However, it is a Price Guide, and Guide is the operative word...

Certain genres are well under priced in my opinion (certain reggae, ska items, psych singles,...

Unfortunately, this seemingly impressive guide has been overtaken by the internet. If you're relying on this book to price records then you will often get it wrong. There are many records badly over-priced and many more valuable collectables not even in the guide. I once emailed the authors to highlight a few discrepencies considering what stuff was selling for on ebay...

Generally an excellent price guide, has improved a lot in the last few editions with the addition of some lovely colour images or rare items, especially depicting some wonderful sleeves.

However, it is a Price Guide, and Guide is the operative word...

Certain genres are well under priced in my opinion (certain reggae, ska items, psych singles, library items and some NWOBHM).

It seems also that certain items are hugely overpriced, such as Cliff Richard and other early Rock and Roll items,and some British Jazz seems to have reached its peak..

There are also many collectable items that fetch good prices at fairs and on internet auction sites not even listed here... Punk singles for example.

This review is from: Rare Record Price Guide 2010 (Record Collector Magazine) (Paperback)
Now clocking in at a hefty 1400 pages of small type, with a claimed over 100,000 entries (though I haven't counted them) this is the original, best and most comprehensive of the rare record price guides. It's worth the full 28GBP but at a reduced price as here it's even better value.

Fritter away hour after hour simply checking on the value of your old and not so old stuff and feel the mixed emotion of things like finding out that though you don't have the 1st Shy Limbs single "Reputation", your favourite, from 1968 valued at 80GBP, you bought the follow-up "Lady in Black" for 3/6d (17.5p) from the cheap rack just after it was released and it's now worth 120GBP. Most excellent dude but of course you'd never sell it!

I only have two gripes. The phrase "now with full colour illustrations" amounts to 60 small colour shots of records, sleeves etc over 10 pages. A volume this size could do with far more colour illustrations, meanwhile 21 pages of colour are wasted on advertising. Secondly I've never managed to get a hardback edition, despite applying on receipt of the magazine advertising it. Why not print a bigger or unlimited run? The demand is obviously there.

There are many records badly over-priced and many more valuable collectables not even in the guide. I once emailed the authors to highlight a few discrepencies considering what stuff was selling for on ebay and the response was "ah, but that's what it sells for on ebay"!!! Well yes - thats what people are paying for it! Many times I've been bidding for vinyl on ebay where it sells for 20-50 yet it's nowhere in this guide. Other times I've tried selling stuff that's rated as say 10 or 30 in this guide and I've not even managed any watchers. Try Popsike to discover true values.

We were going through our old record collection and my partner wanted to take them to a car boot sale. I bought this book to prove to him that some of our records were worth more than car boot prices. We have kept the albums concerned

I bought this book for my husband's birthday & there's not a day goes by that he doesn't open it to digest the knowledge contained within it. He is checking through all his own records & the list his brother sent! He's loving it!!! Comes highly recommended.
