Copies of David Bowie’s chart-topping album Blackstar are selling for more than ten times their original price, days after his death.

Vinyl versions of the LP, which is number one in the UK album charts, are being sold for more than £400 as fans scramble to get their hands on a copy.

According to the 2016 edition of Record Collector’s Rare Record Price Guide, mint copies of Bowie’s self-titled debut from 1967 are priced at £800, while 1971’s The Man Who Sold The World are fetching £700.

Record Collector editor Ian McCann said: “If you want to buy Bowie’s records, our advice is to wait. Massive prices for old albums tend to flatten off.”
