It is the most expensive single ever sold on the vinyl-focused marketplace.

The Beatles' debut single for Parlophone, "Love Me Do," has sold for $14,757 via the Discogs marketplace, marking a new sales record for any 7" single on the vinyl-focused website. 

The single sale fell just $243 short of the all-time record set by a rare double 12" DJ version of Prince's Black Album, which sold for $15,000 last year. 

"Love Me Do" was released Oct. 5, 1962. This record is one of only 250 issued with Paul McCartney's name misspelled in the writing credit as "McArtney."
