Jean-Michel Jarre,Music for Supermarkets —$14,000-$33,500
Only a single copy of famed French electronic musician Jean Michel Jarre’sMusique Pour Supermarche (Music For Supermarkets in English)was ever pressed, made as part of a supermarket-themed art exhibit in Paris in 1983. The single vinyl disc was sold for $14,000 that year (approximately $33,500 in today’s market). It’s notable in that it was designed to be treated as a work of art, rather than something to be reproduced — the artist purposefully had the master plates destroyed in order to keep it as a one-of-a-kind release, making the title especially ironic.
