The Unique Auctions Record, Memorabilia, and Electronics auction on the 13th & 14th April 2023 will feature an exceptional collection of records and music-related items from the late Stephen Wilkins, a serious expert record collector from Gainsborough. This remarkable collection not only includes many rare titles, but it’s the pristine condition of the records that makes it even more desirable.

Mr. Wilkins, a former designer of Hi-Fi and electronic equipment for Sony, Polygram, Leak, and NAD, was known for his commitment to quality and attention to detail.

He used a new SME Arm Stylus for each record played, ensuring that the records remained in pristine condition.

The collection includes many promotional records and items received through his work, adding even more value to the collection.

Some of the rare titles in the collection include Trout Mask Replica by Captain Beefheart, The Velvet Underground and Nico, and Frank Zappa Mothers and Hot Rats. These records are highly coveted by collectors and are sure to generate significant interest.

In addition to the Collection of Stephen Wilkins, the auction will feature the largest collection of Hank Williams items to be sold outside of the USA and a larger collection of Buddy Holly items. These collections are sure to attract their own set of collectors and add to the overall excitement of the auction.
“This is an extraordinary opportunity for collectors to acquire some truly unique and desirable records and music-related items,” said a spokesperson for Unique Auctions. “The Collection of Stephen Wilkins is exceptional, and the additional collections of Hank Williams and Buddy Holly items only add to the overall quality of the auction. We are thrilled to be able to offer such an outstanding collection to our customers.”
