Sixteen Beatles collectors bid on a ‘Hey Jude’ album that went up for auction on eBay last week. Ten days after its initial posting, the record, which started out at $9.99, landed the seller a grand total of $1,914.99.
A rare version of Led Zeppelin’s self-titled vinyl release sold for approximately $1,890.00 earlier this month on eBay. Take note, this is not the same self-titled copy you have in your personal collection; this is the highly sought out, first pressing of the band’s original 1969 UK debut.
On April 21, independent record shops across the country will roll out the red carpet for customers with the annual parade of exclusive goodies known as Record Store Day. While it’s still too early to put together a list of the special releases fans can look forward to, we know at least one thing: Metallica will be going ‘Beyond Magnetic’ again.
Vinyl aficionados are a special breed. Some feel the medium is the only one that does justice to older recordings, while others enjoy listening to even newer music on actual records instead of more modern CDs or digital formats — and both groups are well-represented in the just-released list of 2011′s top-selling vinyl albums.
Vinyl’s not dead. Indeed, it costs more than ever if you want the right disc. An early copy of Led Zeppelin’s first album, simply titled Led Zeppelin, has sold on eBay for £2,200 (approximately $3,500).
Petty and the band are planning to release a live vinyl LP to mark the occasion, offering fans a chance to hear new versions of classic tracks, cuts from ‘Mojo,’ and a concert performance of the rare B-side ‘Sweet William.’
