What is the rarest library release you have ever found?
« on: October 14, 2023, 05:14:38 AM »
For me, it would either be Sensazioni e Ricordi released exclusively by Ludo Rekord(Any other release by them), or Magia Di Suoni 2 by I Senza Nome (Which I own as a physical).

The rarest I found was some Gerhard Trede CDs. It is difficult to find rare stuff.

The rarest music library I've ever heard just so happens to be MUTEL, in which its hundreds of cues can be heard in various TV productions during 1950s and 60s.

Has this been ripped yet?

The rarest release I've come across would be the L.T.I. Music Bank Collection 101 album. I've made a post about it. The company behind it was active for only about 10 years, the composer was someone unheard-of and details about the company are very scarce.

Not rare in terms of the actual record, but I have an LP which is the actual copy used in a 1970s BBC test card tape.

I've also got a couple of Frank MacDonald/Chris Rae de Wolfe LPs which were owned by Chris Rae himself.

I found a 10" white label Chappell sampler featuring Mel Young & Johnny Hawksworth for a 1 in a charity shop. Put it on discogs 9 years ago here - hxxps://www.discogs.com/release/5701563-Mel-Young-Johnny-Hawksworth-They-Are-Coming-Time-And-Motion
Impossible to value as never seen another (neither has discogs). Wont order the yacht just yet though... ;)

Since Ive focused most of my collection on Capitol it would definitely be Hi - Q reels L-205/206 by Jack Mayborn and X-261/262 by Bent Myggen. Took me YEARS to find them.

They don't even show up online on a google search for me.

Would you happen to have a copy, by any chance?

Would you happen to be able to rip these in lossless quality?
