Sex Pistols 'God Save The Queen' named the most valuable vinyl

Friday, 22nd April 2011 1:44PM

Record Collector Magazine has named God Save The Queen by the Sex Pistols the most valuable vinyl to own.

At a whopping 8,000 (that's $16,479 NZD) the record was published by A&M Records in 1977, but after the company dropped the band and destroyed most of the copies it became an extremely rare item.

No.2 was a first pressing of The Beatles' first album, Please Please Me, worth 3,500

From a NZ perspective ... maybe FN001 - Pin Group Ambivalence with hand printed cover by Ronnie Van Hout!? Although I'm sure there are rarer singles out there ... this must be a landmark release!!!

it's not even just from a UK perspective, it's 'records from the UK by very famous bands everyone's heard of', that aren't even particularly rare by collecting standards.

The 'old favourite' on this lists is 'Do I love you' by Frank Wilson...two copies known, makes the sex pistols record look like small change, BUT he's not a household name like the Sex Pistols, which wouldn't really suit the 'pr bullshit' nature of the list.
