Money spinners: With rare vinyl records selling for up to £8,000, do you have a fortune sitting in your attic?
It's time to dig out those dusty old LPs as an increased demand for rare vinyl has sent prices spiralling.

Original pressings of classic recordings are now being seen by experts as safe long-term investment opportunities.

Record Collector magazine has compiled a list of the best 51 records for investors and at the top is the ultra-rare withdrawn Sex Pistols single God Save the Queen on A&M Records.
The label famously dumped the band before it was released and destroyed most of the copies, making it worth £8,000 today on the rare occasions a copy turns up.

The Beatles debut Please Please Me is in second place at £3500, although pristine copies are believed to be worth much more.

Some of the other records on the list are more affordable, with mint condition first pressings of popular albums like David Bowie's The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars worth around £40 and likely to increase in value.

Wonder what The Shaggs records are going for these days. Can't remember did they put out more than one record? You can get them on CD now but the original vinyl was going for $3500 or so, twenty years ago, if I remember right.
