Record value question...
« on: October 13, 2016, 03:08:39 AM »

I found a copy of "Presenting the Fabulous Ronettes" at my local Salvation Army. I know this album is worth more than the $2.99 I paid for it but I would love to get some opinions on it and I figured here would be the best place to come.

Some details:

Canadian pressing, mono (PHLP-4006)
Inside label is yellow and black and has the band name misspelled as "Ronnettes"
Record has some light surface scratches
Sleeve has some wear along the spine and edges as well as foxing stains

I know it's not a priceless valuable, but I hope it can be a nice piece for my collection.

Hi Mairi,

MusicStack will give you a good idea about the value of your Ronettes LP:  MusicStack

Do a search for your LP and see what they have for sale at their participating record stores.  They grade conservatively.

You're welcome, Mairi.

In my opinion, your LP is a gem!  The misspelling of Ronettes adds to its value.  But most importantly, this was their debut LP and the first time we heard "The Wall Of Sound."

Even The Beatles had their name misspelled early on...

The Wrecking Crew at work. 

And you can see (and hear) how Brian Wilson was influenced by Phil Spector and The Ronettes...

I don't have my record player with my currently, but I think when I get it shipped over to my new apartment, I will play this album first.

Good choice, Mairi.

It's not on the LP you bought but just look at how The Ronettes (and Phil Spector) influenced The Beach Boys...
