Tefteller.com: John buys and sells The World's Rarest Records
John Tefteller was born and raised in Southern California, not far from Randy Skretvedt. Specializing in nearly impossible to find 1920’s and 1930’s Blues records, he has been a world renowned record collector and dealer since the mid-1970’s. His other passion is for Laurel & Hardy and that started even earlier – at the tender age of eight. In the old days, before VHS, Betamax, DVD and Blu-ray, there was only film, so young John spent much of his childhood allowance buying Laurel & Hardy 8mm reels from the now defunct Blackhawk Films. During high school, he began a hobby that continues to this day – collecting original still photographs of the comedy duo. In his sophomore year, Tefteller landed a part-time dream job working for Groucho Marx, serving two years as his personal recording engineer and scout – purchasing and archiving original still photographs and radio programs. From 1977 to 1987, Tefteller established and spearheaded the Archives Library for The Society to Preserve and Encourage Radio Drama, Variety and Comedy (SPERDVAC) in Los Angeles. He is currently preparing a book and CD box set of The Marx Brothers’ long lost radio show Flywheel, Shyster & Flywheel, as well as various audio/visual projects involving legendary horror film actors Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff. Tefteller and his wife of over thirty years, Susie, live in Grants Pass, Oregon and have three adult children: daughters Janelle and Jennifer (who have not inherited the collecting gene) and son Joel (who has)!
John has the world's largest inventory of Blues, Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll 78's with over 75,000 in stock. He has a fabulous selection of over 100,000 45's from the 1950's and early 1960's in the following categories: Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Rockabilly, Rock & Roll, Girl Groups, Surf and Country. His personal collection contains some of the rarest records on the planet. His auctions in Discoveries magazine have featured some of the rarest records on the planet. Many have sold for "record" prices. For top quality records, no one can top The World's Rarest Records!
