The Beatles – Yesterday and Today
Rare because of the controversial cover, called The Butcher Cover.
750,000 we issued with this cover, and later recalled, with a new cover pasted over the original. Vinyl record price guides have many different prices for this album, based on the condition.
The rare versions still have the paste-over intact, or, even rarer, the original cover LP sold before the recall.
Value can be in the range of $400 – $20,000 depending on the version
The Melvins – Lysol
This was later recalled due to the use of the brand name ‘Lysol’. The LP was reissued without a title. The photo shows the word LYSOL on the cover. Average selling price is $100. The first pressings had black tape over the words Lysol. Later pressings had the title removed. Great grunge music.
There are way too many rare records to list here, and most have interesting stories behind the reason for being rare. The massive price guide book can be a fun read for record collectors.
Records can be considered ‘rare’ because they are made in limited editions, such as the Baby Igor EP above.
This was limited to 400 made, and each being hand-numbered.
The Starday record, above, is rare because it was a limited DJ pressing,
called an acetate.
