    Do u or your parents still have any of those 7 inchers.

    I knew a fella who grew up in the sixties had hundreds and hundreds of vinyl records of many sizes such as the original soundtrack for war of the worlds and quite a few beatles ist release vinyls.

    I don't think that they really collected the Beatles to be honest - I did ask my late father once and he said just that. They could have sold out too quickly, but as it was before I was born, I wouldn't be in a situation to say.
    I am now in my 40s (just in case anyone asks).

    Beatles records were produced and sold in the millions and have little value...apart from this one which was not released.

    That's not quite true...

    For one thing, that American LP you linked to was, IIRC, released, in the US, but quickly withdrawn, due to the nature of the sleeve. Some copies "escaped" and are eye-wateringly expensive in mint condition!

    As for UK releases, if you can find the first two singles on the red Parlophone label, you would be quids in!



    Likewise any promos or demos!

    As for worldwide releases, they are hit and miss. The rarest ones are in the far-flung regions, like the Philippines or such.

    Also, believe it or not, some were released on 78! A classic example of a country that did that was India (although it was by no means the only one). The logic behind that was that a lot of the poorer countries did not have electricity in the areas outside the main cities and so only wind-up gramophones were available.

    The early stereo copies of the Please Please Me LP are worth a lot, as demand for stereo was low in 1963, & the early ones had a different label design to the later pressings.

    Not UK then!

    When it comes to valuing records, condition is paramount! Anything other than total mint condition (Vinyl, label, sleeve) and the value drops off alarmingly!

    I have a few records of which "book value" is high but the condition makes them worth a pittance. I call these "Nice-to-haves".
