    A few, but I'd probably have to say that my most prized is a copy of The Beatles' "Blue Album" in blue vinyl, in mint condition. A former co-worker gave me a stack of about 35 albums a couple of years ago, and I could not believe it when I saw it was in the pile...

    When I first got it I looked on ebay and saw a couple of copies for sale, I think one was $40 and the other one was $50. I had a hunch it would have been worth more than that. If I remember correctly, there were a couple different pressings of the album. I'm not sure which is more valuable (if there is any difference). Now you have me curious, time to do some research. I'll report my findings later, and perhaps I'll post a photo while I'm at it...

But I lost track of Henry Paul... new he did some solo stuff, Billie Jones and Hughie Thomasson are both dead now(RIP) ... ALan Parsons always great stuff

    The blue album was first released on blue vinyl in 1978 (Capitol SEBX-11843), and that is the copy I have. I see a few on ebay right now ($49.99, $70, $74.99, and $75).

    Got that In the Court of the Crimson King, that Henry Paul Grey Ghost is his first solo Lp and a must have there is a couple on E-bay still. Don't get the CD though its pricey and sounds terrible.

    I have many prized, and I am in the process of reorganizing, but these stand out. Most are first pressings. Despite being played they would grade very high.

    Roxy Music / The First Seven Albums, German pressings.

    The Who / Quadrophenia, Track Records

    Rob Wasserman / Duets, German pressing

    Madonna / Something to Remember, German pressing.

    Arne Domnérus / Jazz at the Pawnshop, Proprius ˝ speed master.

    Modest Mouse / Good News for People Who Love Bad News

    I have a 4th Proof Sgt. Pepper, in fantastic condition. In mono. Holy grail of Beatles vinyl. Belongs in a museum.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    I have three copies of Sgt, Pepper on vinyl. Original 1967 US Stereo, a decent British mono, and the 4th proof. I bought the other British mono just so I wouldn't have to play the 4th proof. British versions of the Beatles in mono vinyl, the only way to listen to the Beatles!

    I have an lp on the Riverside label. It tracks from the label out to the edge of the lp. There aren't many of those out there.

    I had a pristine Amos Milburn (Motown R&B) album. I never heard of the guy, so that's why I bought it. It book valued at $900.

    My outer sleeve was a bit warped when I picked it up used, but the record sounds like it was never played. The sonics are phenomenal... Highly recommended!

    Have a lot of first pressings/promo copies, wrote record reviews in the 70's and 80's, and used to get records direct from the record companies as they were released. Still have lots of them and the sound quality is generally top notch which a few exceptions. Very recently picked up three rare sealed Bob Dylan albums from a friend/collector. World Gone Wrong, Good As I Been To You, and Time Out Of Mind. These were put out in the early to mid-90's when vinyl was "dead," and therefore originals are almost impossible to find. Also got a sealed Tom Petty Wildflowers for a song, which is very pricey sealed vinyl now.

    Since everyone is talking about rare and collectible vinyl, I was wondering if anyone knows a good record price guide to get. I am getting back into vinyl and would like to pick up a record price guide to learn more about first pressings, prices, etc.

    I sell used and rare books as a part-time business and have plenty of price guides and reference material on used/rare books but have no idea what kind of reference book to get for collectible vinyl.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    My 'special' LP is a boxed set of The Band 'The Last Waltz' signed by Levon H., Robbie R. & Garth H. This was after the death of Richard M. & Rick D. Also during the time that Levon and Robbie had a falling out which makes it even more 'special'.

    THAT, is a keeper. Out of all their lp's, except for "Ophelia" I disliked every song that Levon lead vocaled on, and loved everyone that Danko and Manuel sang.
