What Folk Music Labels are worth money?
Folk music underwent something of a resurgence in the late 60s and early 70s and the styles had an impact on groups such as Led Zeppelin. We buy folk label vinyl and are always interested in hearing about collections for sale.
A myriad of small labels were used for Folk music in the 60’s and 70’s, the biggest of these being Topic.
Many of the acts that appeared on these smaller labels went on to having hits on major labels too. Most of the time the smaller labels were quite small distribution runs – which increases the desirability.
Some of the more collectable labels are MIDAS / FOLK HERITAGE / WESTWOOD and ARGO.
If you have anything on these labels then call me and I can either come to visit or arrange to collect and appraise and give you a fair price based on what it is and the condition it is in.
If you are looking through the artists in this genre then you may find ANNE BRIGGS.
