God Save the Queen – The infamous Sex Pistols album that sold for only six days under A&M pressing before the scandal caused them to part ways with the company. Even a copy of the original without the sleeve can fetch £8,600.00.
Please Please Me – The UK debut album from The Beatles was produced over 13 hours, while Lennon had a bad cold, yet it still launched the band to massive and enduring fame. The first pressing now sells for over £6,766.67
Introducing…. The Beatles – Like Please Please Me, this is a ‘Debut’ album for The Beatles. As the EMI US subsidiary, Capitol Records declined to sell, Please Please Me, this was the band’s breakthrough album in the States, following much negotiation. Only 6000 versions were made with the “Ad Back” sleeve, and they sell for up to £6,157.13
