February 23, 2015 Records of the Day

Born into a musical family, one of Lavern Baker’s aunts was Jazz singer Merline Johnson. Another one of her aunts was legendary Blues artist Memphis Minnie. Lavern Baker was one of the most successful solo female singers in the early days of Rock and Roll with classics like “Jim Dandy” and “I Cried a Tear.” But her first hit came in 1955 with “Tweedle Dee.” The 45, released on Atlantic records is worth up to $50.00 while the “Tweedle Dee” EP can sell for $300.00 today. Both 45 and EP are pictured here. Find the value for every record by Lavern Baker and those by over 65,000 other recording artists with the Mighty John Record Appraisal Guide on CD, listing the values for over a million records. It’s available in the left hand column.
