Records? Which are the rarest? The ranking of the world’s most expensive vinyls was drawn up by the British expert Phil Barton. It certainly doesn’t lack surprises. Let’s see what establishes the value of an album. Firstly, the mistakes. For example, in the print on the cover. In this case, it’s clear that the record was immediately withdrawn from the market. However, not before some copies were sold. Secondly some vinyls are also of great value because they originally belonged to VIPs.

In fact, in the first place we have “The White Album ” (1968) of the Beatles. It’s copy number 0000001, which belonged to Ringo Starr, and is worth 822 thousand pounds. At number two, on the other hand, we find, “That’ll Be The Day” (1958) by The Quarrymen, the band that would shortly be called The Beatles. The record contains the recording of the first song officially composed by the then fourteen-year-old Paul McCartney. It’s valued at about 112,500 pounds.
In third place we still have the Liverpool quartet with “Love Me Do” which is worth about 90,000 pounds. Fourth place for “Music For Supermarkets” (1983) by Jean Michel Jarre which is worth about 33,000 pounds. It is very valuable because the French composer destroyed all the records, except one. He then sold the only copy left at auction.
