Zu Zu Man

Much coveted record by myself and many others, one copy went for $676 at the start of the year and one currently being bid on up to about $350 ending later today. Unfortunately this is about as close as I'm ever gonna get to it.

Was interested to find out what other records have gone for a small fortune and soon found the story of "Do I Love You" by Frank Wilson, a northern soul classic that this time last year became the most expensive 45 ever sold - about $38,000 (apparently a velvets acetate went for more and a beatles acetate has been valued at 4 times that amount but never sold). Full story of how it changed hands (and bootlegged) is worth a read.
