I just heard someone say on the TV that Beatles LPs [old vinyl] are selling for £6,000!!!! Surely that cannot be true? I mean I do hope so, I have a Sergeant Pepper LP in mono, not stereo - I could do with £6,000

That would be sooooo nice. I have the White Album in mono and sterio, both complete with pics.

Not sure if I would part with them though, they belonged to my late husband.

OMG im sitting on a goldmine!!!

When my big brother moved away he left all his records at my mums and when I cleared her house after her death I brought them all to my house they are in me attic.

He had all the Beatles originals on vinyl, Bowie, Queen, Sexpistols, Floyd, Zeppelin and thats only the ones I can remember.


Maddiecow Report 16 Jun 2008 07:45

I think for these values the records need to be mint. I collect the odd LP but dnt know too much about them. I have several cases in the loft incluing the white album and sgt peppers some a rare german import of Paul Mccartney, unopened Smokey Robinson Family but I think a lot of it comes down to the condition and the label early labels are going to be rarer and that pushes the value up, also as well as the records the sleeves need to be in mint condition and they need to be origanls not re releases. None of my records are worth thousands, a few maybe worth a hundred quid or so but not much more than that.

I was at a local auction only 6 weeks ago, about 6 Beatles albums came up for sale, sold between £20 and £40, S peps was the £40 one.


Eldrick Report 16 Jun 2008 08:17

Look on ebay.

I always find that a good guide to what people are prepared to pay for things.

Beatles albums go for less then a tenner in most cases.


Harpstrings Report 16 Jun 2008 08:48

An item is only worth what a person is prepared to pay for it!

I have original T-Rex Fly label vinyls! I hope they are worth something. They were given to me by next door neighbour - they were her sons - bet he wished he had not said I could have them - if they are worth anything lol
