Great place to stop in when strolling in Nashville. Vinyl there is some, CD's there is a bunch. Some cd's start about $4. Super to look at all the publicity photo's and album covers not to mention the gold record awards. Lots of souvenir stuff...More

No clue about a value on that, your best bet is ebay's sold listings or a vintage record shop.
