I couldn't sleep on Tuesday night so I went on the internet to see out of curiosity what albums were rare and worth money. I discovered to my amazement that my LZ3 and LZ fourth album are worth in the region of £300 each.Also my Beatles Help album is in the same region. Do other members have similar stories? I really was stunned, they show you what you should look for on the record cover, the deadtrack and the label. I had never taken any notice of this before and I bought all three albums on release (cos I'm an old git). Maybe you should have a lokk at your albums and see if they are rare.
To be honest I went on about 10 different websites, so I can't remember, each site gave different things to look for. I ended up typing in rare vinyl records and I took it from there. It was amazing the things that I found, like on side 2 of the fourth LZ albums some labels had the feather symbol upside down.
Sounds like a project until the weather gets warmer. I hate to think what I may have in the four boxes. But don't be fooled too easily. All are not created equal. You really need to check closely at the things Joe suggested.
I have The Who's 'My Generation' album on the Brunswick label, which is a bit of a rarity. I have seen it on ebay for £250. However I am aware that record collectors require mint condition for these items and this one certainly isn't mint. For me it's a reminder of when I first became interested in good music in the '60s. I bought it on a market stall and it has the price on the back - 15 shillings (75 pence) - not sure of the exact American equivalent of that, but probably about 50 cents.
