Connie Francis (45)Connie Francis (ps)To list all of Connie Francis’ hit records would take quite some time. Beginning in 1958 she had 35 top 40 hits. Among the biggest were “Who’s Sorry Now” and “Lipstick On Your Collar.” Like many of the 1950s and early 1960s recording artists, her career hit the skids with the arrival of the British invasion. Today her 1959 hit “If I Didn’t Care” is worth up to $400.00 with its picture sleeve. FOR BIG SAVINGS ON OUR RECORD GUIDES, CLICK ON MIGHTY JOHN’S DISCOUNT PACKAGES IN THE YELLOW STRIP ABOVE.

September 3, 2015 Record of the Day

Redd-FoxxRedd Foxx might be best known for his 1970s TV series “Sanford and Son,” but he began his career in the 1940s. As a result of his blue humor he found it difficult to get his records accepted by brand name record stores. Most of his records are comedy, which fall into a spoken word category. Spoken word records are generally not highly prized by record collectors. However, in 1957 Foxx recorded a Rhythm & Blues song called “Real Pretty Mama.” Released on Dooto records, the single is worth up to $250.00 today. Now you can have Mighty John the Record Guy personally appraise your records for as little as 41 cents per record. Click on Mighty John’s Rock and Read Special in the yellow strip above for details.
