Top 20 Vintage Vinyl Records That Are Worth Thousands Today

We live in a digital age where the thought of owning a physical copy is no longer a possibility. Just a few decades ago, we all bought vinyl records to listen to our favorite tunes. A box or two might still be in your garage.

Most people think vinyl records are a throwback to the past. Although the first vinyl record was created in the early 1900s it wasn’t until 1930 when RCA Victor released the first-ever, long-playing commercially-produced record. Vinyl’s popularity has fluctuated over the years, but there is one thing certain: old vinyl can be a great source of income.

Vinyl records have become a collector’s dream as technology advances. You could find a rare copy or two of an album that you are looking for and be able to turn it into a treasure trove. Are you hiding one of these rare gems in your attic? These old treasures might be worth a look!

20 Steely Dan – Can’t Buy a Thrill

Recorded in Los Angeles’ The Village Recorder in 1972, Can’t Buy a Thrill was Steely Dan’s debut album. It was released in November 1972 and marked the start of a long career for the American rock group. The classic rock album began with “Do It Again” before ending with “Turn That Heartbeat Over Again.”

Robert Lockhart designed the artwork for You Can’t Buy A Thrill. The scene depicts Rouen, France. (It was banned in Spain). Steely Dans members Donald Fagen and Walter Becker called the album’s cover artwork the “most hideous album covers” of the 1970s.
