The most expensive record 'ever' is confirmed sold

The Guinness World Records' book has revealed that Ringo Starr's copy of The Beatles' White Album is the most expensive record ever to be sold at an auction.

Starr's first edition copy - complete with the category number 0000001 (famously printed on each copy of the album) - was kept in a vault in mint condition by Starr for over 35 years and eventually sold at Julien’s Auction House in December 2015.

The record was sold at $790,000 (£522,438) and displaced an Elvis Presley acetate which previously held the record at $305,000.
