Jazz records take honors for most dominant genre on this week’s countdown. As far as format is concerned, it’s a collector’s paradise. We’ve got the usual LPs and 45s, plus a rare 1960s acetate, a modern test pressing and a set of glow-in-the-dark vinyl 7-inch records you’ve got to see to believe.
This week’s Market Watch is a great example of how many different areas of collecting are vibrant, if you just take the time too look.
No, you’re not seeing double, but a lot of this week’s Market Watch auction results sure look that way. Which artists have doubled up on the countdown? And whose double play brings in the biggest coin?
This week’s Market Watch breaks all the rules. For starters, there are NO appearances by The Beatles.
When you think of items that command six-figure price tags, fine art, fine wines and fine jewelry may spring to mind.
This week, you can add fine vinyl to the list.
Beatlemania is alive and well, if this week’s Market Watch is any indication.
The classics never go out of style — or at least, that’s what it seems like from this week’s Web exclusive Market Watch column. Led Zeppelin, John Lennon and The Fab Four —they’re all here. Of course, there are a few entries that are a bit off the beaten path, too.
The Beatles are admittedly a Market Watch staple, but securing four fab spots in this edition’s countdown — including the No. 1 and 2 spots — is the kind of feat that only the lads from Liverpool could achieve.
When it comes to this week’s Market Watch, it’s all about soul. Four Northern Soul records sold for a combined value of $21,772.05 this time.
So, just when are the blues a good thing? When you’re making a tidy profit from them, of course.
