Rediscovered: Nearly 40 cassette copies of My Twenty Greatest Hits of the Past 240 Years. Thought to be completely out-of-print, these cassettes are available (while they last) for $10 each postpaid.

While not exactly digital quality, these 1984 recordings certainly are collectors' items, particularly the (circa 1750) A Plague of Wenches, which doesn't seem to have been recorded by anyone else anywhere which we can find.
