New records are normally more costly than various other formats. However, fans would contend that the experience of listening and capacity to grasp the music is actually worth it. Before you burrow through those cartons to listen to your most loved LP or 45-RPM single, what you’re holding could be worth a fortune. Here are a few records you may have that could make you rich….
1. THE BEATLES/THE BEATLES (WHITE ALBUM) (1968)
In 1968 The Beatles’ double collection, which was later known as the White Album, was released. However, not all duplicates were made equal. The individuals from the band and administrators at the studio were given copies stamped with serial numbers that started with A00000, each in a particular serial (A000001, A000002, and so forth.). The first copy, which Clifford J. Yamasaki of Let It Be Records obtained from an executive at Capitol Records in the 1970s, sold in 2013 for $35,000. This was a year after the duplicate with serial number A0000023 sold at sale for $13,750. Check yours, who knows you might have one of them.
2. BOB DYLAN/THE FREEWHEELIN’ BOB DYLAN (1963)
Dylan’s second album was somewhat changed just before it was released in 1963. These track changes can mean a huge number of dollars if your duplicate is worth it. As it is, four songs were supplanted with recently recorded tracks. However, by one means or another, somebody at the pressing plant utilized the old form rather than the new ones to press an obscure number of collections. After the collection’s release, just a couple stereo duplicates of the mix-up pressings have surfaced, and less than two dozen of the mono duplicates are known to exist. Thought to be a standout amongst the most important records on the planet, a mint duplicate of the previous once sold for $35,000.
