Extensive Roxette auction in Halmstad


HALMSTAD - November 24 there will be a major Roxette auction in Halmstad. Hallands auktionsverk, where the Gyllene Tider-auction was held last year, will auction out a large Roxette/Per Gessle collection, with rarities like the 12" single "Spegelboll," "Look Sharp!" as a picture LP and CD, the German edition of the "Chances" 12" single and many more. The collection includes basically everything released by Per Gessle and Roxette, from "Per Gessle" to "The Pop Hits," on CD, LP, 3", 7", 12", MD, DCC, MC et cetera, all in all over 400 items.

  The Daily Roxette has been in contact with the seller, who wishes to remain anonymous, and asked why he sells off his rare material. "I don't know really, I just realized it was Gyllene Tider I wanted to collect. And I also think that I can never get a complete Roxette collection," he says. Included in the auction are LPs, CDs, singles, cassettes and video tapes. All original and in great condition of course. Many items will be bundled, and the starting prices are kept low on purpose. "Yes, for instance the single of say 'Fading Like a Flower', it isn't worth all that much and was released in so many countries, so we bundled items like that." Other things, like the very rare Mexican "Milk & Toast & Honey" promo CD will be sold separately.

  You don't have to be physically there to bid; you can bid via e-mail, telephone, fax and regular mail. The only thing you have to think of is to bid before the auction starts. There is also the option to be on the phone during the auction, doing that adds a hefty fee to the bid and is probably not worth it in this case.
