Some familiar faces, new entries, and a whole lotta 7″ singles march their way into the top 30 most expensive items sold list for the month of July. A scarce Australian punk 7″ from Young Identities takes the top spot this time around, selling for $1800. Perhaps even more hard to come by is the rare US reggae 7″ from the Versatiles and Val Bennett with “Worries/Hound Dog Special”. The importance of first pressings and turquoise-colored lettering is all it takes for fans of Led Zeppelin to drop the farm on their first album as our number three spot this month proves. The supremely uncommon King Tutt release “D-A-N-C-I-N'” comes into our marketplace in NM- condition, and top dollar is exchanged for this condition. Parlophone released a box set of Beatles albums in mono back in 1982, and this release takes our fifth spot for the month of July.
The Misfits pop up at number seven with a colored variant of their “Earth A.D./Wolfs Blood” album, while an early 70’s US rock release from Soap /East Of Underground appears for the first time. A rare Japanese disco 12″ makes its first appearance on the list, and coming as a surprise to no one, a stupidly limited Coil album sells for big money. Compact discs represent as well with a limited promo affair from Depeche Mode coming in at number 29.
