Collecting the 2010 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees

By Peter Lindblad

Almost two years ago, a pair of ABBA 12″ singles — “Hovas Vittne” b/w “Triveds Hambo” and “Sång Till Görel” — sold for $2,550 and $2,025, respectively. Who would have guessed that any ABBA record could command such a princely sum?

Other acts in the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’s class of 2010 have their own highly collectible records (all prices listed below relate to copies that are in near-mint condition).

In Genesis’ case, the 1968 Parrot 45 “Silent Sun”/”That’s Me” can fetch $100 to $300, depending on whether yours is the promotional copy with  an orange-colored label and a black bird on it (3018 [DJ] — $100), or it’s the stock copy with a black label and a green-and-white bird (3018, $400).

Similarly, there’s a difference between a 1967 45 featuring The Tremeloes and The Hollies. The promo version on red vinyl (10184/0 {DJ]) is worth about $100, while one with “There’s Room For Two At The Top!” written across the top of the sleeve with photos of both bands (10184/0 [PS]) goes for around $300.

As for the other three, finding anything worth more than $50 is difficult. Jimmy Cliff’s 1969 Can’t Get Enough Of It LP on the Veep label (VPS-16536) would bring in about $40. The Stooges’ Raw Power (1973, KC 32111) on Columbia and Elektra releases The Stooges (1970, EKS 74051) and Fun House (EKS 74101), both with red labels and a stylized “E” would fetch $50. Take 60 percent off, though, if you have a copy of either of the last Stooges LPs mentioned with the butterfly label.
