John Tefteller's November 15 auction: Classic 1950's, '60's and early '70's Rock & Roll, part 1! 45's, LP's and some Pre-War BLUES 78's!

Welcome to my March 16th R&B Vocal Groups 45's auction!!!


It has been a year and a half since my last Surf/Instro auction. With Covid and restricted travel, it has taken a LONG time to put together a decent Surf/Instro auction.

Yes, there are some LP's in this auction, some very rare and collectable LP's, including The Satans' "Raising Hell" — the ONLY COPY I've ever seen!

The 45's have two MEGA RARITIES — The Nodaens "Beach Girl" on Gold and Mel Taylor And The Ventures on Toppa — both of these are LEGENDARY RARE and offered by me for the FIRST TIME in all my 45+ years in records!

There are plenty of other nice Instros and rarities so LOOK THIS LIST OVER CAREFULLY!

Good luck to all!!

My name is John Tefteller-I have been buying and selling rare phonograph records for the past 35 years. I have a worldwide reputation for my knowledge of rare records, especially Blues 78's.

My personal collection contains some of the rarest records on the planet. My auctions in Discoveries magazine featured some of the rarest records on the planet. Many have sold for "record" prices. For top quality records, no one can top The World's Rarest Records!

I have the world's largest inventory of Blues, Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll 78's with over 75,000 in stock. I also have a fabulous selection of over 100,000 45's from the 1950's and early 1960's in the following categories: Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Rockabilly, Rock & Roll, Girl Groups, Surf and Country.

I am always interested in buying more rare records! I will pay top dollar for your rare Blues and Rhythm & Blues 45's and 78's in Near Mint condition. Before you sell your rare records to ANYONE, you should at least talk to me. I consistently pay the highest prices for records for my collection and am more than fair when buying for resale.

Email my webmaster to sign up for my email newsletter! I'll have upcoming auction highlights. We will NEVER give out your information to ANYONE!

Don't forget to bid and to get your bids in early! If you really want to secure your selections, please take advantage of my "call back" system. Questions? Call my cell phone: (541) 659-7175. Good luck to all!
