[ARSCLIST] Classical recordings guide
Noticing the classical review postings. Reminded me of a question.
I am trying to find a price guide or discography that will help me make sense of values for classical recordings, especially LPs, the prices don't even need to be current. Out of print is fine, since I am also a book dealer and can usually locate the book. I know there are such things since I have sometimes seen collectors that use them. I am a long time record dealer, and I am fairly knowledgable about a wide range of recordings, but not classical. (I have reduced my own classical collection to CDs since that is how I listen to them.) I am not even looking to get top dollar. I just want some help in figuring out which records I can put in $3, $5, $10 boxes as opposed to my $1 boxes. I have had several opportunities to pick up classical collections. I am beginning to learn some of the more desirable labels, but I have a long way to go to know this field. I have learned that many 1950s recordings are more collectible. Rather than see recordings dumped, I would like to see
them get in the right hands.
