Forgotten Album sells for $4,500

Beatles fan Tony Williams couldn’t believe his good fortune recently when his almost forgotten stereo copy of the very rare “Portrait Cover” edition of The Beatles & Frank Ifield On Stage sold to a California collector. The recording was purchased in the early 70s from a bargain bin at The Forest record store in Dayton OH. When Williams found that it was not a live Beatles album as the title implied, he thought that he had been ripped off and stuck it into the back of his record collection and forgot it.

Reportedly only 300 of the stereo “Rainbow Label” Portrait Cover albums were ever released. Tony finally decided to list the album recently on eBay and watched excitedy as the bidding dramatically accelerated in the last few minutes and ended at more than $4,500.

“It was exciting. I didn’t buy this from a collector as an investment. I bought it for $1.99 at a record store as a college kid that really liked the Beatles.” Parting with the album will not be easy for Tony. “I’ve known it was valuable for almost 30 years; I just didn’t know how valuable! I hope the new owner takes good care of it.”
