Renowned collector John Tefteller wins the 'rarest and most expensive' vinyl from legendary Sun label.

The previously unknown and potentially one-of-a-kind blues 45 rpm record produced by the legendary Sun record label of Memphis, Tennessee - also home to Elvis - was won at auction for $10,323.

The record features Alabama blues singer DA Hunt performing each song in an outstanding old acoustic style; his first and only record which sold very, very few copies when first released.

"This record was not previously known to exist on 45 rpm," said Tefteller. "[It's] a discovery of monumental importance to the record collecting world and I just had to have it."
