About

What you get from us


True descriptions of record & cover

Nothing hidden or exaggerated as we want customers to return

Honest and affordable valuations

We need to make a living but we do want to sell the records

Constantly changing stock

Covering all genres & sub-genres

Are you looking for specific records?

Don’t see it in stock? Contact us & we’ll try to locate it within your budget 

We want to buy from you.

We will consider buying records with original sleeves and covers with minimal scratches on the records. We want to hear from you if you have the following;

Rock, Metal, Punk, Modern/Free Jazz styles (for example, Coltrane, Miles Davis), Blues, Indie, 80s pop and 90s


You will not get top prices, as we need to check, clean, catalogue, store & sell them. You may not get much for your collection, but selling for yourself is time consuming. 

Company History


Our aims are simply to offer competitively priced records backed by a premium service and a single source to trade records of all genres suiting most budgets


Founded in 2011 by Jason, a life-long music lover, Desirable Vinyl originally started online with the intention of opening a physical store somewhere in Gloucestershire or Worcestershire. In 2016 our physical store opened in Pershore with an indoor market stall. 2018 saw us partner with long-standing record dealer Recent & Rare Records and we moved our store to Evesham in Worcestershire where we have expanded and have two floors of Vinyl LPs, 7" ad some 12", Plus CDs and Official band related merchandise. 


Sadly John Fisher, founder of Recent & Rare, died unexpectedly following breathing complications in 2019. John had a unique sense of humour and a practical joke was always around the corner. He is sorely missed. 


Desirable Vinyl were determined to keep his legacy alive, so following a rebrand and purchase of his stock, a new shop layout and refurbishment, we re-opened in April 2019 as Desirable Vinyl. 


We continue to always look for store and business improvements, with the aim to create a relaxed and open store for all vinyl lovers to soak up the vibe and enjoy vinyl! 


We love music, it is the owner's religion and life. We feel vinyl is the best media to enjoy this, however to cater for all, we also sell CDs, Cassettes and even 8-tracks! 


As a generally forgotten media we will keep vinyl alive. The experience of owning vinyl is unique and many people are still avid listeners to and collectors of vinyl, come and join the revival against downloads. Young or older everyone is very welcome to our store
