No doubt the Beatles stuff is hot right now. The "Love Me Do" 45 usually goes for $7k - 10k with the sleeve. But if a scrap of paper (see Lennon to-do list post) sells for $16k, what Beatles item isn't worth more than its weight in gold? The non-Beatle entries on this week's list are worth a look. The Maitrey Kali LP is the very rare double LP version, not the more typical single LP repress. And the "Love Buzz" 7" as a test pressing gets about double what one of the regular releases bring.

1. 45 - The Beatles "Love Me Do" / "P.S. I Love You" Parlophone Demo with sleeve - $17,338.20
2. LP - Maitreya Kali "Apache/Inca" Private Press - $10,101.00
3. LP - The Beatles "Please Please Me" Parlophone Stereo UK 2nd Pressing - $7,029.00
4. 45 - Nirvana "Love Buzz" / "Big Cheese" Test Pressing - $4,350.00
5. LP - The Beatles "Please Please Me" Parlophone Stereo UK 1st Pressing - $3.982.10

In 1971 you could have found any of these records in a used bin for a half-dollar. Maybe the Brute Force 45 might not have turned up so easily as it was given out, more or less, as a joke by Apple Corp employees and was never officially released. This week is an honor roll of psych holy grails, with the Mexican psychedelic band Kaleidoscope having their only release topping the list.

1. LP - The Kaleidoscope "self-titled" Orfeon - $7,200.00
2. 45 - Brute Force "King Of Fuh" / "Nobody Knows" Apple 8 - $4,374.00
3. LP - The Bachs "Out of the Bachs" Private Press - $3,888.00
4. LP - The Beatles "Yesterday & Today" Capitol T-2553 #6 Mono 2nd State Butcher Cover - $3,483.83
5. LP - Damon "Song Of A Gypsy" Private Press - $3,450.00

A sweet find turned up this week, a test pressing of "Freewheelin'" that has the alternate tracks that were mistakenly released on the original pressing. A stock copy of "Freewheelin'" typically sells for around half the $5k price that this test pressing bid to. Psych stuff continues to make the list, with Canadian holy grail "Bent Wind" getting the #2 spot, and Delany and Bonnie's Apple record getting the #4 spot. Poking in at the bottom is a KBD 45 from Bad Brains.

1. LP - Bob Dylan "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" Test Press LP Alternate Tracks - $5,212.00
2. LP - Bent Wind "Sussex" Trend 1015 - $4,064.00
3. LP - Jaques Dumont Bach Sonata & Partitas Belvedre - $3,962.00
4. LP - Delany & Bonnie "The Original Delaney And Bonnie" Apple SAPCOR7 UK Pressing - $3,534.64
5. 45 - Bad Brains "Pay To Cum" / "Stay Close To Me" w/sleeve and insert - $2,938.00

The private press funk treasure from John Heartsman gets the top spot on this lackluster week. The week after Christmas can be low-key, but watch for the weeks from early January through Valentine's day to test the economic resilience of vinyl in 2012. As filmmaker Jeanie Finlay points out in her acclaimed documentary "Sound It Out", record collecting is primarily a men's pre-occupation.

And I declare that as men most of us never get what we want for Christmas - socks, ties, hand-made chotchkies from our kids. We must sneak in our true material desires in the zone between New Years and Valentine's Day.

1. LP - John Heartsman And Circles "Music Of My Heart" Private - $3,250.00
2. LP - Hank Mobley "self-titled" Blue Note 1560 Original Pressing - $2,480.00
3. 45 - Ellipsis "People" / "Gregory Moore" Briarmeade - $2,462.00
4. LP - The Beatles "Yesterday And Today" 1st State Butcher Cover Mono - $2,300.09
5. 45 - Nirvana "Love Buzz" 533/1000 Sub Pop - $2,306.70
