Description by OLDIES.com:
It's been 60 years since "the little record with the big hole" first arrived on the scene, changing the sound of music forever; and while these black gems have been around a long time, 45s are still red hot in the collecting market. So hot, in fact, some of the rarer records are selling for $5,000 to $10,000.
Goldmine Price Guide to 45 RPM Records helps you stay on the edge of the 45 RPM market with comprehensive coverage of the biggest little record ever made. Inside you'll find updated pricing, a checklist format for easy inventorying, 80,000 listings of 7-inch 45s, EPs and accompanying picture sleeves, details on artists, labels and variations, the Goldmine Grading Guide (the industry standard for grading record condition) and much more!
One key to record collecting success is the ability to identify fakes, phonies and frauds, and with this guide and bonus DVD readers can. This new edition of the only book dedicated to 45 RPMs contains 80,000 listings with essential details for identifying 45s, including artist, record label, number, date of release, value, and variations and fakes. In addition, it features market reports and articles touting rare 45s, and the revival of the hobby.
