Record Collector

Record Collector Magazine

Record Collector RC to our friends – is Britain’s longest-running rock and pop music monthly. We know our readers are totally passionate about what they listen to. We love the thrills and spills of rock’n’roll as much as any veteran roadie. But we think that if you’re serious enough about music to read a magazine dedicated to it, then you deserve one that goes as deep as you do. It’s not only rock’n’roll: we cover pop, soul, 80s, psychedelia, folk, rockabilly… If it’s good enough, it has a place in Record Collector.

The magazine boasts a formidable reviews department in which modern gems nestle alongside classic reissues; there’s our remarkable Diggin’ For Gold and Value Added Facts sections, which sift the musical treasures from retro rubbish; we tell you what’s happening in the world of music auctions, where vinyl of the kind you might discover in your attic can attract incredible prices, and there’s all the news that any discerning music fan could want.

Plus you might find a few bargains in our classified ads, which are still heaving with the kind of records that you’d struggle to unearth on the internet. Not yet convinced? This might tip the balance: although RC is officially published monthly, the magazine is actually out every four weeks, which means your annual subscription delivers 13 issues of pure musical pleasure.
