September 24, 2015 Records of the Day

Ricky Nelson 45Ricky-NelsonRicky Nelson has never been given the respect he deserves as one great Rock N Roller. From the beginning it was thought he was a manufactured teen idol like Fabian. His family’s TV show “The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet” was already a hit when he did an impersonation of Elvis. The song he sang, “I’m Walkin,” went on to sell a million copies. An original copy on an orange Verve record label can sell today for $75.00. His first album, where he shared billing with other singers, was called “Teen Time.” Released on Verve records in 1957, its worth up to $300.00 today on a black Verve label. Blue Verve labels are re issues and no more than $50.00. Ricky Nelson is among the over 65,000 recording artists you’ll find on the “Mighty John Record Appraisal Guide” on CD listing the values for over a million records (albums, 45s, & 78s). It’s available in the left hand column. Also check out our new companion guide, “Records You Should Know About.” Just click on the link in the yellow strip above.
