PRE-BEATLES: Pricey Collectible
 
If you've ever wondered what the most expensive album is when it comes to serious collectors, wonder no more. According to the Record Collectormagazine, that distinction goes to an acetate recorded by John Lennon's pre-Beatlesband, The Quarrymen. Their 1958 demo of "That'll Be the Day" backed with "In Spite of All the Danger," is valued at more than $319,000. The rest of the Top 10 is dominated by recordings by The Beatles and The Sex Pistols, who, along with The Quarrymen hold nine of the Top 10 slots. Queen occupies the remaining slot.
