In 1963 Paul Revere and the Raiders recorded and released their version of the Rock and Roll classic “Louie Louie.” They used the same studio in Portland Oregon where the Kingsmen recorded the definitive and legendary version. Had it not been for Mitch Miller, Paul Revere and the Raiders version might have been just as successful. But Miller, who made the decisions at Columbia records, hated Rock and Roll and turned thumbs down on bringing the Paul Revere and Raiders’ single nationwide. Their version on the small Sande record label is worth no more than $30.00 but their one album on Sande can sell for $500.00 today. The 45 and album are shown here. Which other Paul Revere & the Raiders records are worth $500.00 or more? Find out with the Mighty John Record Appraisal Guide on CD.

But when it comes to value neither “Strokin’” or “Patches” is worth much more than $5.00. It’s the single “Messin’ with My Mind” by Clarence Carter, released by Ichiban records in 1986 that collectors seek.
