October 31, 2017 Records of the Day

“Sweet Home Chicago” was among the classics performed by the Blues Brothers, John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, on record and in the “Blues Brothers” movie. The song has been recorded by several recording artists including the hit version in 1959 by Little Junior Parker. Released by Duke Records, a copy can sell for $75.00 today. However, the first release by the great Robert Johnson is a huge collectible. Issued as a 78 on Vocalion Records in 1937, it’s worth up to $10,000.00.
