November 22, 2017 Record of the Day

Among the teen idols of the early Rock N Roll era was Jimmy Clanton. His first hit “Just a Dream” went top-10 and sold a million copies in 1958. Like other teen idols such as Fabian and Frankie Avalon, Clanton crossed over to the silver screen in films like “Teenage Millionaire” and “Go Johnny Go.” His 1959 EP “Just a Dream” with title on cover is worth up to $40.00. However, if the cover reads “From the Hal Roach production Go Johnny Go Starring Jimmy Clanton,” then that same EP, released on ACE records, can sell for $125.00 today.
