Could your attic or basement be loaded with valuable gems that you have packed away and you have no idea what kind of value they hold? The answer is most definitely, yes.

Mighty John the Record Guy is a regular on the Keeler in the Morning show on WIBX and he's the foremost authority on vinyl records. He has a catalogue available with over a million titles and the values of those records.

John was on the Keeler Show on Monday and in celebration. of Thanksgiving, he listed the 10 records to be most thankful for. Often times the value of the record has much to do with the condition of the album or 45 rpm single and whether or not you have the album cover or picture sleeve. Sometimes the picture sleeve is worth more than the record itself.

In addition to the 10 records we should be most thankful for, John offered up two very valuable bonus records. One of the records is in the Rock-a-Billy category and the other is Pre-war blues on 78 rpm.

1957 Chess 45…Billy Barrix… “Cool Off Baby” …….……..$10,000.00
Category: Pre-war Blues

1930 Paramount 78…Willie Brown… “Kickin in My Sleep Blues”………..$30,000.00

John's catalog is called  “Records You Should Know About Guide." This guide lists thousands of records worth thousands of dollars by recording artists most people have never heard of. For details, visit Mighty John's website.
