Here's the list few days late but it was a treacherous Easter.

Above all the gods on this week's list, the #1 goes to the Captain Marryat LP, a recent discovery of the lost Prog records of the early seventies. This LP bids up past $3.9k, closing somewahat less than it's high points last year, however all of the sales were originally transacted in British Pounds and have been converted using monthly charts. Given the Pounds recent fall, the price graph may not accurately compare sale values.

Next, an unissued 45 from Bruce Springsteen's River LP out of Holland sells for exactly $3.1k. In the #3 spot an original Sun 45 from Elvis gets taken on a Buy-It-Now for $2.5k.

A UK first press of Led Zeppelin's first LP closes for a little more than halfway over $1.6k and gets the #4 spot. And last, a Portuguese 45 from Queen sells for a little over $1.6k
