June 25, 2014 Record of the Day

In 1958 the Doo Wop group, the Capris, recorded “There’s a Moon Out Tonight.” It was released by a local New York City record label called Planet. Without the proper means to promote the single, copies were left on the junk pile, so to speak. But in 1960 a copy came to the attention of a New Your DJ who played it on his show, and a smash was born; reaching # 3 on the charts. Most copies were sold on the Old Town record label and are worth up to $50.00. However, an original copy on Planet records can sell for $1500.00 today. Find the most up-to-date value of your records from Mighty John the Record Guy within 24 hours.
