We started this website for the love of the music and to connect with the vinyl community all over the globe, sharing the same love for rare vinyl that was made more than 50 years ago!
We love to share our passion
It’s our main objective to create a place on the internet where you can find all kind of accurate information about rare records, and where you can find your own copies of records you have been searching for so long.
Our website consists of two major parts, namely a webshop with rare vinyl records and a section with information about the music, bands, albums, labels, the scene and more. We named the informational part “The Golden Era”.
Many years ago we fell in love with the sound of progressive and psychedelic bands from the Golden Era, which was from the late 60’s till the mid 70’s. And to be honest, we also love the later progressive era from 1975 till today.
Over the years we have built an impressive collection of rare vinyl records.
As a collector of rare records from these genres we found out that collectors from all over the world are hunting the rarest pressings. Especially the 1st pressings are the most desirable.
In the past years we made many mistakes buying later pressings instead of the desired 1st pressings. On this new website we are happy to share our knowledge so you will not make the same mistakes we did.
We brought new life to the legendary Vertigoswirl.com website. The Vertigo Swirl website contains a lot of very valuable information about the label and its records. We structured all the content and made it more pleasant to browse through.
We also included new information and photos and will continue doing so. If you have any information about Vertigo you want to share with us? Let us know!
Information about other labels
In the late 60’s and early 70’s many sub labels were created to provide in the huge demand for contemporary music. Besides Vertigoswirl.com, we will make pages with information for a number of the most important labels of that time like EMI Harvest, Deram, Dawn and many more! If you have specific information about labels, please inform us so we can include it to the Golden Era section.
News and a Blog
As vinyl lovers we love to share our passion for everything that has to do with record collecting. Therefore we created a News and Blog page with related articles to all that make record collecting so cool.
Inner sleeves and inserts
In the Golden Era many different inner sleeves, inserts and other features were used in specific releases. We have tried to collect as much accurate information we could find to show which specific inner, insert and other features accompanied the records. Valuable information for serious collectors!
