    Yes, depending on what the LP is .... did you have anything specific in mind?

    There were an awful lot of DG LPs made & sold, so they tend not to be too rare & valuable. But it all depends ....

    Hi...DG did have very good reputation in the 70's / 80's as the makers of fine recordngs, and certainly have a catalogue of great concerts and conductors on their lists. Most of what I own (maybe 50 clasical) are good recordings, but not all. As to value, I've not heard that they stand out, but there must be rare ones?

    As I'm aware the tulip label issues are the most collectable(blue tulips around centre label)

    Also stereos with a red stereo on the front sleeve.

    In itself, not really though the Tulip versions tend to fetch slightly higher price. Also the place of pressing also makes a small difference - Holland and UK tend to be better iirc...

    From a sound quality point of view, I've found some of the 70-80s DG recordings tend to sound thin...

    I seem to have inherited a 'few' DG LPs which I haven't played yet - will try to make time to listen/flog them on very cheaply to peeps who feel need to spend 4k on cartridge.
