Skip JamesIf you are not familiar with Delta Blues artist Skip James you should know more about the value of his records. He was on the brink of stardom when the Great Depression ended his dreams but he was re-discovered in 1964 and was finally recognized for his gift to the Blues. He recorded nine singles for Paramount from 1931-1932. Each one, like the one shown here called “22-20 Blues,” can sell for $6,000.00 today. Which other Blues records are worth $5,000.00 or more? Find out with the Mighty John Record Appraisal Guide on CD. It lists the values for over a million records by over 65,000 recording artists and is available in the left hand column.
