There’s not been much good news out of the music industry this year, but reports that sales of cassettes in the U.K. through the first half of 2020 are more than double the same period last year certainly offers us pause for thought. In truth, the bulk of this quantity (65,000, so don’t get too excited just yet) is based around the performance of new releases by Lady Gaga, The 1975, Dua Lipa, Selena Gomez and 5 Seconds of Summer. But the upcoming reappearance of the Rolling Stones’ Goat’s Head Soup in the format is certain to give that total a significant bump. As part of the multi-format roll-out of a 2020 remix of the original 1973 LP, the cassette is probably the one that will be most overlooked; it’s a limited…

1 Charley Patton “High Water Everywhere, Part I”/“High Water Everywhere, Part II” Paramount 12909 Condition: About VG Sold for: $16,200.00 This song is a famous one in Patton’s repertoire, because it tells the story of a local event: The Great Mississippi River Flood of 1927. More than 200,000 African-Americans were put out of their homes by what remains to this day as the worst flood in American history. Patton captured the intensity of emotion that the displaced people felt, as their homes were being overwhelmed by the flood. The record came out in 1929. 2 Brian Jones and The Rolling Stones “I Want You to Know” Emidisc (U.K.) acetate Condition: G Sold for: $9,187.50 Brian recorded this song with The Rolling Stones between December 7 and December 9, 1963, but it wound up going unreleased.

zeppelin addresses

Q Why the difference in value between Led Zeppelin original pressings that have the addresses 1841 Broadway and 75 Rockefeller Plaza on the records’ labels? Ones with the Broadway address are more than double the value! — Henry T., Springfield, MA A Generally speaking, most collectors prefer first pressings of records over later pressings, and that’s the case with the Led Zeppelin catalog on Atlantic. In 1968, as several other labels were also making changes, Atlantic switched from the green, white, and blue label style for stereo records to a new red-and-green backdrop. At the time, Atlantic Records was located at 1841 Broadway, and the labels show this. All copies of Atlantic albums that were pressed from that time until November 1971 have the Broadway address on the label. That includes all original…

the kings

THE CANADIAN QUARTET The Kings celebrate the 40th anniversary of their hit “Switchin’ to Glide,” which reached No. 43 in the U.S. in 1980, a lively song beginning with the line, “Nothing matters but the weekend, from a Tuesday point of view.” Their DVD The Kings: Anatomy of a One-Hit Wonder includes Dick Clark introducing them on American Bandstand and saying, “These guys have worked so hard and hit it so well,” before the group energetically performed “Switchin’ to Glide.” The group’s guitarist and songwriter “Mr. Zero” (nicknamed by lead vocalist, bassist and the group’s other main songwriter, Dave Diamond) echoed Clark’s sentiment to Goldmine, “I hope the DVD’s main message is that when opportunity came knocking, we were ready, because we had worked hard.” That opportunity was the availability…
