The Top 50 Most Collectible Records (In the UK, Anyway)

I am a diehard reader of Record Collector magazine because I fancy myself as something of a collector. Not the serious anorak trainspotting kind, but someone who does like to look for offbeat and rare recordings.

The English, however, take this to wonderfully absurd levels.  I applaud them for their dogged efforts at uncovering and evaluating rare records.  That's why I find this list of the 50 most collectible records to be so interesting.

It turns out I have a few of these things (deluxe edition of Radiohead's In Rainbows, still unopened; an early pressing of U2's Boy; an original Unknown Pleasures), but they're all near the bottom of the list and certainly nothing that I can count on to fund my retirement.  And I wouldn't sell them, anyway.

Things begin to get interesting when you get into the top fifteen.  Who knew that vinyl pressings of classical records could be worth so much?  I've never heard of Grout's Urinating Vicar EP.  Unknown psych groups with albums worth $1,000 and up?  

But I'm not so sure I agree the valuations of the top two records.  I've seen an original "Please Please Me" from the Beatles go for way more than £3,500 ($5,600 CAD) on eBay.  And the Pistols' "God Save the Queen" on A&M for £8,000 ($13,000 CAD)?  If you can find a mint copy at that price, buy it. Collectors have paid twice as much at auction.
