Welcome to RARE RECORDS! At the moment very good stock of early LITTLE INDIANS / SHADOKS, Japanese and Scandinavian items (7″, LP and CD). Also very many collectible items from all over the world, some underspace, too! Watch out, new items will be added almost daily. At the moment I can recommend: progressive prog – psychedelic psych – jazz – jazz rock items from Scandinavia, Finland, Sweden – Finnish, Swedish. Also a lot of Kraut, Germany German. Also a lot of Japanese gems: heavy progressive, psych, jazz, electronics, neo-psychedelic, noise.

Have a look also at the GALLERY items.  In case, you’ll need any photos of the items of sale, please contact and I’ll try to add them to the GALLERY.
