If You Own These Vinyl Albums, You Could Be Rich!

Most of us think of vinyl albums as being old and out of date, and instead prefer to listen to music via downloads or CD (and of course, the radio!)

In the past few years the humble record has made a comeback, and as a result, rare or alternate versions of some classics are fetching a lot of money.

We've narrowed down some records from artists including U2, Bruce Springsteen and Madonna that you may have and could be sold for THOUSANDS of dollars!

So, take a look in the dusty old milk crate in the shed, you may be about to cash in!
