World Record Setting Records !

Hello Music Lovers, Audiophiles and Fun Fact Friends...I am back with More of the Most Expensive Vinyl Records Ever Sold! Due to the popularity of my last Record Setting Vinyl Video, and in fact, many of your comments, it time for an update. Plus, several new records have been set…as vinyl is hot.


Anyway, for those of you that don't know me, I am Josh Levine, host of Last Week at the Auction & Josh Levine Speaks. And I want to issue this disclaimer...I may be missing a few genres out there, so don’t jump me on the comments, I’ll have more videos coming. I have had several of you reach out to tell me, I am missing out on some Northern Soul, Jazz, classical and more in the last post and video. I hope to hit a few of those for you today. Let me know what you think. And I know there are other auction records or records sale prices out there. I try to avoid the “signed” records as this isn’t an autograph post. But feel free to share your thoughts, finds and scores with me. You've all be so great. I love the passion music evokes.


With today's post I am trying to update you on some new records that have recently been set, a few you all told me I missed and broaden my scope a bit for you serious folks. And the reason I do this and all my video shows is for you. You might just stumble across some of these at a local auction, yard sale, flea market, storage lockers. Etc. And you will be all the wiser. I often say records are the scratch off lottery tickets of the resale world.


So let’s get to it.... here is what I like to call More of the Most Expensive Vinyl Records & LPs Ever Sold…


Zeppelin

How about some Zeppelin…Led Zeppelin that is and their first release in 1969. The debut record and original UK pressing, which features the band’s name in turquoise lettering, that is the tell, just sold for $3,918.82 on Dec 13th…. The later pressings have orange letters.


A fun fact about this release was it was kind of panned at the time by Rolling Stone. They called Robert Plant, and I quote “as foppish as Rod Stewart, but nowhere near so exciting.” I had to look up Foppish…


Foppish: concerned with one's clothes and appearance in an affected and excessive way...


Regardless…it was a huge commercial success, and Rolling Stone later ranked it as the 29th greatest album of all time.


And now one for the Jazz Cats…
