Cover Condition

Very Good Plus

The cover has noticeable faults, such as light creases and ringwear, but nothing major.

Disc Condition


The disc shows signs of having been played, but there are barely any marks or surface noise, and the labels show only light signs of use.


For sale here is Sonny Boy by Sonny Rollins on UK Esquire. RVG in dead wax. The sleeve would be a strong EX if it weren’t for a mark on the sleeve (see photos) – otherwise it it is amazinhg condition. The disc is in amazing condition. Almost NM. The labels hardly look as though they have seen a record player before!

All the records I am selling belonged to Tony Hall who passed away in the summer of 2019 at the age of 91. All his records were acquired directly from his executors and are exclusively sold here with their blessing.

As a producer, Tony oversaw some of the most celebrated British jazz recordings of the 1950s. As a DJ for Radio Luxembourg and the BBC in the late 1950s and early 1960s, he influenced the tastes of countless people around Europe, not least the Beatles and the Stones as they grew up. As a promo man, he broke countless hits, such as River Deep – Mountain High and A Whiter Shade Of Pale. His extraordinarily wide-ranging record collection will be exclusively sold through elvinyl, and features his personal copies of many important records whose genesis he was involved in.

I will consider offers on all the records I list, so please contact me with an offer. If I accept, I will adjust the price for you.

Many thanks!
