As old vinyl gets hipper, Matthew Shepatin of Esquire charts the five most expensive albums in today's market:
- That’ll Be the Day/In Spite of All the Danger, The Quarrymen (1958): Features John, Paul, George, and some guys who aren't Ringo. Could sell for $200,000, if Paul would sell.
- Double Fantasy, John Lennon (1980): The one that Lennon signed for assassin Mark Chapman is worth $150,000.
- Yesterday and Today, The Beatles (1966): has the creepy original cover with butchered babies. Costs $45,000-$85,000.
- The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, Bob Dylan (1963): With four songs deleted from the final release, it's worth $10,000-$40,000.
- The Velvet Underground & Nico, The Velvet Underground (1966): Unique song versions and order make this worth $25,000.
