THE RAREST OF THE RARE

We all know that the prices of rare records has peaked recently, so here is a list of some of the rarest records ever played on the scene. The list was originally compiled by Tim Brown, and I've added a few in along the way. The values can only be regarded as approximate, a) because the original article was written some time ago, and b) because a record is only worth what you are prepared to pay for it.

To provide a little more information, where a track has been released on CD I've also given the title and catalogue number of that CD. Surprisingly quite a few are now available in that format.
