  • Kevin Saunderson E-Dancer "Heavenly" 3XLP Sells For Over $57 On Ebay

    "Heavenly", a compilation of tracks recorded by Kevin Saunderson under his E-Dancer alias, sold for 31 British pounds (over $57 U.S.) in an Ebay auction on Thursday. This 10-track compilation contains rare tracks licensed from Incognito Records as well as KMS and includes remixes by Carl Craig, Kenny Larkin, and Juan Atkins. Saunderson also recorded under the aliases Inner City (with Paris Grey), Reese Project/Reese, & Tronikhouse among others. Saunderson's releases were generally more readily available than those of other Detroit techno stalwarts, but this 3 record set is one of the rare exceptions. Containing some of his trackiest, hardest, most underground, & least pop-oriented material, Saunderson's songs recorded as E-Dancer seem to have stood the test of time better than some of his other material. The tracklisting is as follows:

    A Banjo
    B1 World Of Deep (Carl Craig Mix) Remix - Carl Craig
    B2 Behold
    C Velocity Funk
    D1 Pump The Move (Kenny Larkin Mix) Remix - Kenny Larkin

  • Joey Negro "Here Comes the Sunburst Band" Rare 3 X LP Sells For Over $122 On Ebay

    "Here Comes the Sunburst Band" the rare 1998 triple album produced by Joey Negro/Dave Lee, recently sold for $122.50 in an Ebay auction. This rare record has never been repressed and includes a slightly different track selection than the 2004 CD repressing of this title (The LP set includes "I'll Be There For You" instead of "Garden of Love"). This release only appeared on Zedd Records and was never licensed to a major label. This certainly ranks as one of the most valuable Joey Negro items and only appears on Ebay a couple times a year (at least from reputable dealers). The results of this auction are a strong indication that the 4XLP box set of the 2004 follow-up album by the Sunburst Band (entitled "Till the End of Time") is an excellent investment, especially SEALED. Joey Negro has received a lot of recent exposure as a result of his being the DJ for the most recent Defected in the House installment.

  • Kenny Larkin Pod "Vanguard EP" on Buzz Records Sells For Over $76 On Ebay

    The Vanguard EP, a rare record released by Kenny Larkin under the alias "Pod", sold for 41 British pounds (over $76) on Ebay today. This is one of the rarest and most valuable of all Kenny Larkin collectibles and one of the many highly collectible early 1990's Detroit techno released from Belgium's defunct Buzz Records imprint. This EP was also released by Buzz on CD, that issue is even much rarer than the vinyl record version and probably would fetch over $100 in an Ebay auction if in decent condition. One of the tracks from this EP, "Northern Lights", later appeared on the Art of Dance label compilation entitled "Exhibits". The other tracks on the Vanguard EP are by and large exclusive to this EP which adds greatly to the appeal of this release along with its very appealing cover art. Larkin's "Corbomite Maneuver" EP (released under his Dark Comedy alias) was also released on both vinyl and CD by Buzz Records and is also highly collectible in both formats. However, that release was (and basically continues to be) readily available in Transmat Records pressings. That's what makes the Pod "Vanguard EP" unique and a more desirable collectible than Buzz Records releases of the "Corbomite Maneuver" EP. While "Corbomite Maneuver" was licensed from Transmat, Pod's "Vanguard EP" never appeared on Transmat nor has its material been licensed to many compilations.

  • Kenny Larkin Warp Records "Azimuth" 2 X 12" Sells For $115 On Ebay

    The rare Warp Records vinyl double pack issue of Kenny Larkin's classic 1994 LP entitled "Azimuth" recently sold for over $115 on Ebay. This title is readily available on CD not only from Warp Records but also from Wax Trax Records in the U.S. The vinyl edition is another story altogether and is very hard to come by as evidenced by the results of this auction. The auction also included a bonus 7" single. "Azimuth" includes the song "Tedra", which originally appeared on the Buzz Records 1993 Detroit techno compilation entitled "Virtual Sex". Curiously, the artist name was given as "Lark" in that case, the only time Kenny Larkin has used "Lark" as an alias.

  • Drexciya 5: The Journey Home Warp EP Sells For Nearly $69

    Drexciya 5: The Journey Home vinyl EP on Warp Records sold for 36 British pounds (nearly $69 USD) on Ebay yesterday. This 4 song EP is considered to be the rarest Drexciya item released by Warp Records. Drexciya also has numerous rarities on Underground Resistance Records and its sublabels, including Shockwave and SID (Somewhere in Detroit). This classic record by the legendary Detroit electro duo was released in 1995, meaning it is classified as "early Drexciya" by so-called experts on the subject. Interest in Drexciya has intensified since the death of member James Stinson in 2002.

  • Rare Underground Resistance SID 007 Sells For Over $80

    The 7th and final vinyl record released by the Underground Resistance sublabel known as SID (Somewhere in Detroit) sold for 42 British pounds ($80.78 USD) on Ebay yesterday. Reputed to be a limited edition of 300 copies, this rare Detroit techno gem contains a total of 3 tracks. By comparison, other releases in the SID series have sold for between $110-180 recently, so it appears this might be the most common of the 7 releases from the series, which featured several rare tracks from Drexciya over the course of its existence.

    Ten City 1989 CD "Foundation" Sells For Nearly $60 On Ebay

    The 1989 Atlantic CD by Ten City entitled "Foundation" recently received a winning bid of nearly $60. Once common in used and cut-out bins in the U.S., this now rare and collectible CD was produced by Marshall Jefferson and includes vocals by the legendary Byron Stingily. The 13 track CD includes remixes and extended versions of several tracks, adding to its desirability. The Ten City/Atlantic Records pairing was just one of many unsuccessful attempts to market Chicago house music to a mass audience in the late eighties and early nineties.

  • Carl Craig Early Planet E CD Compilation Fetches $41 at Ebay

    "Intergalactic Beats", an out of print CD compilation of early material on Carl Craig's Planet E label, fetched $41 in an Ebay auction on Friday. What made the results of this auction even more impressive was the fact it was only a 5-day auction, and 5-day auctions tend to get lower winning bids than the more typical longer auctions. Several of the songs on the CD are now acknowledged classics, including selections from Piece, 69, and Balil (Black Dog).

  • Lot of 3 Lemon Jelly EP's Sells for $1300 On Ebay

    A lot of 3 Lemon Jelly EP's released on their own label Impotent Fury sold for 670 British pounds (about $1286 U.S.) on February 19.

The act was later signed to XL Records and released the wildly popular "Lemon Jelly KY" longplayer, composed of different mixes of the songs contained on these priceless EP's.

  • Romanthony Azuli Record Sells for $71

    "Let Me Show You Love", a limited edition record that was Azuli's 24th release, sold for $71 on Ebay on Saturday. Azuli in its early years was widely considered to be Britain's top house & garage label, eventually abandoning its underground sound for more commercial pursuits. This is just one of many valuable releases by the artist who also has sought after rarities on the Black Male & Prescription labels among others. Considering the seller had a feedback rating of only "6", it is safe to assume this record could fetch a much higher price if sold by a more experienced Ebayer with a higher feedback rating.

    Lil' Louis Journey With the Lonely LP Sells For $95

    "Journey with the Lonely", the 1992 full-length release by Lil' Louis, fetched over $95 on an Ebay auction on Saturday. This was the 2nd LP from Lil' Louis, who gained worldwide fame with the anthem "French Kiss" in the late 1980's. This LP does not include that song but instead includes a tight collection of songs featuring house, jazz, and r & b intricately and expertly fused together. Epic CD copies of this album are fairly common in the U.S. as are most of the 12" singles released from the album. But vinyl copies of the album are a different matter entirely, rarely appearing on Ebay or elsewhere. While "Club Lonely" (with DJ Pierre remixes) and "Saved My Life" (with Kenlou/Masters at Work remixes) were the hit singles, it is the house ballad "Du U Love Me" which has best stood the test of time.

  • Drexciya CD Compilation Sells For $50

    The Submerge 2-CD compilation of songs by Drexciya entitled "The Quest" sold for $49.59 on Ebay today. This compilation is no longer available from Submerge and has become very difficult to find. Another copy for sale to UK customers only in a separate auction was at around $32 with nearly one day remaining in the auction. Interest in this legendary Detroit techno duo has soared since the death of member James Stinson in 2002. Drexciya already had an outstanding reputation within Detroit techno ranks at the time of Stinson's death.

    This compilation collected many of Drexciya's early work on Underground Resistance and its sublabels that is now almost impossible to find on vinyl. Included in the overly impressive tracklisting is the extremely rare track "Hi-Tide", which was originally available only on the ultrarare Underground Resistance sublabel known as "Somewhere in Detroit". This sublabel only released 7 records, the first 5 of which were available only by appointment with the Submerge people at their store in Detroit. "Hi-Tide" was included on the 5th release from the label.

    Yes There Are Valuable House Music Records

    The topic of this blog will be rare and collectible house, garage, and techno music records and CD's. An enormous number of products have been released around the world in these categories over the last 20 years and it would be impossible to mention every release that is rare and on the want lists of many collectors. I will try to draw attention to as many as possible, and will also mention some releases that I think will become collectible in the future but that are still bargains today. The blog will primarily focus on the buying and selling of house music records and CD's as it related to Ebay. I will be interjecting my own comments about the recordings from time to time, and these comments will obviously be my own only and hence very subjective. This blog will assume you are at least somewhat familiar with the artists and labels mentioned. If you are not a fan of house music and familiar with this material, this blog will mean nothing to you. This blog is primarily for DJ's and collectors who have a lot of old (or not so old) house music records lying around and are curious whether or not they have substantial resale value.

    I will start today by mentioning some rare records and the prices they have recently fetched on Ebay (in parentheses where applicable). Please keep in mind that the prices realized for a given title can be highly variable with examples in better condition obviously getting higher prices on average. So without further ado, I will mention some valuable house records, in no particular order.

    1. CVO (Glenn Underground) - The Wilderness EP - Balance Recordings #7 - ($46) - This copy that recently fetched $46 in an Ebay auction had skips. Balance Recordings was a sublabel of Prescription Records which at the time was itself a sublabel of Cajual Records. This mid-1990's release is extremely rare even by the standards of Cajual Records products. There are a lot of scarce Cajual and Cajual-affiliated releases, but this might be the scarcest of all. At, 37 people say they want a copy of this record while only 9 claim to have it. A copy of this record in excellent condition (if such a thing exists) could fetch upwards of $75-100.

    2. Chicago Connection - Dancin' (Cajual) ($51)

    3. Joey Negro/Sunburst Band - Here Comes the Sunburst Band 3 X LP (Zedd Records LP #1) - Long out of print, this has not shown up on Ebay in ages. I'm seeing wanted ads where people are offering $60 for this collection. It's hard to guess what a nice-condition copy would sell for on Ebay, but I'm guessing somewhere between $75-120.

    4. Joey Negro - Can't Get High Without You 4 X 12" vinyl compilation (approximately $48) - Zedd/Azuli

    5. Dajae - U Got Me Up Double Pack (Cajual #7 with Tenaglia remixes) ($38.97)

    6. Romanthony - The Wanderer (Prescription Records #000) ($36)

    7. CVO/Glenn Underground - Balance #1 Party Time etc. ($41)

    8. Prescription Records #1 Honi b/w D'Pac ($41)

    9. Ron Trent - The Nature of Retribution (Prescription Records #13) ($30)

    10. Carl Craig/Underground Resistance - Climax EP (Retroactive) ($200)

    11. Carl Craig - Open House ft. Placid Angle (Retroactive) ($71)

    12. Derrick Carter/Chris Nakuka - Magi Excurions EP (Bomb Records #3) - $36

    Newly Added to the list on 2/24/2005:

    13. Chez Damier/Stacey Pullen - The Classic EP (Serious Grooves Records #4) - the rare Balance record "Forever Monna" is lifted from this even rarer EP featured on the same Detroit label that included so many of the highest profile releases from Terrence Parker, Claude Young, & Alton Miller (none of which are particularly valuable or rare). Copies of the Classic EP rarely surface anywhere, and a copy in excellent condition would have a realistic chance of getting a high bid of over $100 on Ebay....this is a must for Cajual/Prescription/Balance completists despite not being released on any of those labels.

    14. Davina - Don't You Want It (Mad Mike Banks production) ($106) - This is considered to be one of the finest garage tracks of its time and actually appeared on 3 different Detroit labels: Happy Soul, Underground Resistance, and Soul City. This track has become enormously popular as the result of its inclusion on a Laurent Garnier Mixmag CD as well as some Detroit Submerge mix CD's. The Soul City pressing seems to be the least valuable of the 3 versions, but all of these different pressings have considerable resale value. The Underground Resistance version is #16 on the label; there was another song by another artist also released as #16 on the label but UR was known for doing this kind of serial number overlap fairly often.

    15. Underground Resistance - Revolution for Change double album compilation ($54.77)

    16. Underground Resistance - Acid Rain EP - Shockwave Records #8 ($40)

    17. Octave One (Anthony Shakir) - Never on Monday - blue vinyl test pression - 430 West Records Detroit - 1992 ($72)

    18. Smokin' Beats - Dreams - classic UK speed garage - ($68.65) - winning bid probably would have been higher if seller didn't have such miserable feedback rating


    HOUSE MUSIK - HM 601 (rare 1988 Chicago house record) ($51)

    20. Black Rascals featuring Cassio Ware - So In Love (remixed by Blaze) - Polar Records #4 - ($55)

    21. Black Rascals (Blaze) featuring Roger Harris - Keeping My Mind - Sumo #4 - ($52.50)

    22. Blaze featuring Cassioware - Fantasy - Shelter Records ($38.14)

    23. Johnny Fiasco - Moody Grooves Volume 2 (Cajual) ($20)

    24. Glenn Underground - GU Essentials EP (Cajual) ($24)

    25. Don Carlos - Alone (Irma Classics) ($25)

    26. Blake Baxter - KMS #11 4 track EP ("Get Layed", etc.) ($31)

    27. Freestylers - Don't Stop (w/Eric Kupper mix) - 1999 Mammoth Records release ($95)

    28. Frankie Knuckles/David Morales - United DJ's of America 2XCD ($34)
