October 24, 2014 Records of the Day

The Isley Brothers were there at the beginning of Rock N Roll and, with some sibling changes, lasted on the music scene for almost 50 years. In the early years it was brothers, Ronald, Rudolph, and O’Kelly with Doo Wop singles that failed to get much attention. Then in 1959 RCA released “(You Know You Make Me Wanna) Shout” and the rest is history. “Shout” is one of the best known hits in history. An original 45 on RCA is worth up to $25.00. However, one of their lesser-known Doo Wop singles “Angels Cried” on Teenage records can get you $600.00 today. Find the value for every record by the Isley Brothers and those by over 55,000 other recording artists with the Mighty John Record Appraisal Guide on CD in Microsoft Word. It’s available in the left hand column for $39.95 with free shipping.

Besides being a well-known record appraiser, Mighty John the Record Guy is also an author. Order a signed copy of John’s first novel, “Stung!” and we’ll send you a free signed copy of John’s second novel, “The Garden of Eva.” You’ll find “Stung!” in the lower right hand column of this page. ($12.95) Rock music plays in the background of “Stung!” But the novel itself is in part a love story, in part a coming-of-age tale, but like those written by Mighty John’s one-time employer, Stephen King, it’s largely a book of horror. Or you can download “Stung!” on Kindle for $1.99.

Bill Haley and the Comets were true Rock N Roll pioneers.

However, before Haley became a Rock N Roll king he was a Country boy. In 1950 his group, Bill Haley and the Saddle Men, first tasted success with “Deal Me a Hand.” Released as a 78 on Keystone records, a copy can sell for $2,000.00 today. Find the most up-to-date value of your records from Mighty John the Record Guy within 24 hours.
