    Does anybody know how much an original Beatle album is going for these days? Its the original LP.

    I was sort of spring cleaning my closet and stumbled on this rare gem, but I don't know the original vinyl  album goes for, its the Sgt. Peppers album. (they actally do sound better than the CDs...who knew!!!)

    No I don't but would love to check into it now that you brought it up! I have a few Beatles albums. They are used, jackets a little bent up but probably worth something!

    Depends on the album. Factors like condition, what country it was pressed/printed in, whether or not it has the original inserts, etc. all make a difference in the value.

    The Beatles made and sold so many albums that they are not particulerly rare or expensive.  Condition will play a major part in how much someone is prepared to pay.  Have a look on eBay to see what people are paying.

    If you get a record price guide you will see that there are many factors that go into grading vinyl, which is one of the top determining factors in its worth.  The condition of EVERYTHING is taken into account:  the record itself, the label on the record, and the cover.  Also, whether it's an original pressing or not is taken into consideration.  Beatles albums have been issued and re-issued numerous times (all their albums were moved from Capitol to Apple in the mid-70s, then back to Capitol shortly before the advent of the CD).  Given their popularity, the only truly rare (and therefore valuable) LP is the so-called "butcher cover" of "Yesterday and Today."  Their 45s on VeeJay are also valuable; again, if they are in mint condition.

    As for "who knew," all of us who grew up with vinyl! LOL
