Some of those artists are fairly collectible, others not so much. If you want to know monetary value, you'll need to give info such as record label, record number, titles, and condition.

Otherwise, why not get yourself a turntable and play some of 'em? That's the real fun part of this hobby.

Agreed!

There are a few Bowie albums which are VERY sought after 1st LP on Deram label,

3rd LP on Mercury UK version is black label US version is Red label
Beware the US press is HEAVILY counterfeited, the US pressing has stamped matrix numbers in dead wax not etched I think...there is a track you can listen to however to tell if it is a bootleg or not for the US press.

Check out discogs.com for further info on any of those albums paying careful attention to cat number and images as well as dead wax matrix number information.
