45 rpm/7"s
 
I know really nothing about these and think I'm gonna start collecting them. Thus far my crown jewel is a Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields promo w the trumpet at the end. What are the coolest and rarest 45's to collect? I just picked up Help! because of it's distinction of being a different vocal. Not really rare or valuable but I just wanted it. I kinda just started by trying to get all the recordings on Rarities. Anyone want to espouse their knowledge of collecting 7"? Tips, pointers, cautionary tales, anything at all. I'm all ears.

That's a good idea :cool1:

I only collect rare LP's, picture-discs and bootleg CD's, but no 45's. I'm afraid, I can't tell you which are the coolest and rarest. Hopefully, there are some other members in this forum who will be able to give you tips for 45's.

This was an exciting day w the announcement of the recall on this Love Me Do release. Everyone went crazy and people that received the 45 made a lot of money. But this is what I think it boils down to. The disc is really not collectible at all. It's the same disc we've been issued for decades. Just remastered w Andy White on drums. The real collectible still remains the Ringo recording. Thanks to this screw up.

I've got some fifteen 7" records (both singles and EPs) from Spain, most of them first editions, and a few less from the rest of the world, apart from a couple of new releases (like the anniversary edition of 'Love Me Do' or the four 2011 Record Store Day singles). I don't think any of them is specially rare, but my favourite one is the German release of 'Sie liebt dich' b/w 'Komm, gib mir deine Hand'. To me, the coolest to collect are those with the cooler sleeves. Anyway, I use this as a general guide, although I have more specific books for certain countries, just to know a bit about what I'm buying.
