How the world’s most expensive record made it back home to Detroit
The most expensive album in the world is a Motown album – and it’s back home in Detroit where it belongs.
Frank Wilson’s “Do I Love You?” Which is considered the world’s most valuable extremely rare 45 record, was recently discovered by Melodies and Memories in Eastpointe.
The record, valued at around $ 100,000, was acquired by Jack White and Third Man Records, who will hold the historic record in Detroit.
The record was not released by Motown after Wilson decided to produce beyond singing. Berry Gordy then ordered the records to be destroyed.
The record was originally recorded in 1965 under Soul Records, a Motown subsidiary that had a large following of Northern Soul fans and DJs in the UK.
It is believed that there are only a few specimens left in the world.
Third Man announced the record on Record Store Day in April. It is currently on display and repression copies can be purchased.
