There were only 15 copies of this record pressed, and the cover of each was hand-painted by Dave Buick, founder of Italy records. The copies were made for a Detroit record release show for the band in , as the fledgling band was on the incline, destined for stardom. Hopefully, you kept it safe. The record label that handled the release, Tiger Lily, was a tax scam operated by the mob. The scam worked like this — a large portion of records would be pressed and later written off as unsold.
A few of these records made it into the right hands and achieved cult status. The pressing of the record that is particularly valuable, however, is one that features a stencil rendition of the front jacket painted by none other than notoriously elusive street-artist Banksy. There were only of these limited edition hand-spray painted versions made, with several different color variants.
The record label decided to be cautious in the wake of the controversy and political turmoil and ordered the records destroyed. You may remember this record from an episode of Pawn Stars. The price was deemed too steep for the vinyl, which was not in the best shape. One lucky Canadian record collector picked up a copy sans the Warhol artwork-adorned sleeve for 75 cents at a flea market, but this was no ordinary re-pressing.
The acetate record ended up being a test pressing that featured early versions of many of the songs — there are only two in existence, and one belongs to former Velvet Underground drummer Moe Tucker. Gordy ordered the pressings destroyed. Soussan unscrupulously bootlegged the record and released it by crediting Eddie Foster as the musician.
The record was a smash hit. Such is the case with this already valuable record. A few tracks were meant to be replaced before the release, but someone at the pressing plant missed the memo, and a few copies featuring the wrong songs were pressed. There are said to be less than 20 mono copies of the record and only two stereo copies. In a stroke of luck, the North Carolina seller of this extremely rare 78 RPM slab came into possession of the record at an estate sale.
He threw the record up on eBay and watched a bidding frenzy take place. There are believed to be only copies of the record in existence — both belong to the winning bidder, John Tefteller. The reason? However, by that time promotional copies had already made it to circulation. Evidently, the singer changed his mind about the record, releasing a CD version in At least one copy managed to escape out into the world. The money was split between James and Doctors Without Borders.
An undisputed classic tops the list. For years, it was rumored that the first copy went to the late John Lennon, but really it went to Ringo Starr. Starr put the money toward his own Lotus Foundation — a charity that provides support for victims of domestic violence, cancer research, the homeless, and other noble causes. Later in his career, Anka was also known for writing songs for other artists, including Frank Sinatra and Buddy Holly. Can I get on that for my commute?
Mamma Mia, here we go again! However, you might not know how drastically different the lyrics to this song are from the English version to the Swedish. The rest was history. If only our siblings were this talented!
Enter George McCrae. The single sold 11 million copies and Rolling Stone named it the top song of the year. Cher sold 11 million copies of this dance-pop single worldwide and became the oldest female artist to ever enjoy that kind of chart-topping success.
Her use of autotune was inspired by another artist, Andrew Roachford, and the similar effects he was able to achieve using a vocoder.

I highly recommend this album to any fans of Yelawolf!/5().
