Baby boomers either never stopped listening and are still collecting, or they may be handing them down.
Collection value depends. Tom Petty – is a great example. We sold every Petty Album in our record shop when he passed away. R.I.P., Tom – you defined music in an epic way as did the great Aretha Franklin – the minute an artist leaves this world, the prices, double, triple, and quadruple depending on the artist. Exceptions are artist like Elvis – so many albums were made, and reproduced when he died that the value hasn’t increased due to the supply. Another exception:
Rare Elvis: Elvis Country 1970’s. Green Vinyl #LSP4460
Elvis Christmas Record $20,000 on red vinyl #LOC1035
Below are a few artists that their albums aren’t always so easy to find. Hard rockers don’t like to part with their music!
- Miles Davis
- Pink Flyod
- Led Zepplin
- Neil Young
