Founded in 1978 to provide superior copies of rare classical LP's to classical collectors worldwide, Polyphony his now celebrating over twenty-six years of serving customers across the United States and Canada, as well as in dozens of countries overseas.  Open-reel tapes and CD's have long since been added to the offerings, as have periodic listings of records catalogs and books on musical subjects.


Polyphony's catalogs include material in all classical areas:

  • Audiophile

  • Opera

  • Vocalists

  • Instrumental

  • Chamber

  • Orchestral

  • Great Conductors and Instrumentalists

While LP's, CD's and open-reel tapes form the basis of Polyphony's business, from time to time the catalogs also include other items, such as music - related books, Schwann catalogs, 78-rpm and 45-rpm records, musician autographs, and other material of interest to classical collectors. There is also occasional non­classical material, mostly among the tapes.

Two types of catalogs are currently available, each including some 2,000 items:

  • Auction Catalogs available to browse or download from this website, or sent in conventional paper form via First Class (domestic) and Air Mail (overseas).
  • Fixed-Priced Catalogs on the Internet

Since 1997, Polyphony has also published fixed-price catalogs on this website either for browsing or for download.


One of the primary concerns of purchasers of rare recordings is the reliable indication of a record's condition. When I began Polyphony, I made the accurate description of condition my first priority:

Returns from customers consistently total less than one-half of one percent of items shipped. My customers know that they can rely on Polyphony's grades for an accurate evaluation!


Payment is accepted by credit card (Visa and Mastercard), wire transfer, and by check or money order denominated in U.S. dollars and drawn on a U.S. bank. Packing is done very carefully, and shipping is prompt. I have 25+ years of experience in meeting the varying requirements of overseas customers, so let me know your needs.


Polyphony also will be happy to check current stock for items customers are seeking. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me via mail, phone, FAX or e-mail at the addresses/numbers provided above . I hope to hear from you!

Good Listening,

Lawrence H. Jones, Proprietor
