Love is StrangeMickey-SylviaMickey & Sylvia had one of the biggest hits of 1956 with “Love is Strange.” Released on Groove records, a copy of the 45 is worth up to $50.00. But you can’t say Sylvia Vanderpool is a one-hit-wonder as she went on to produce hits like “Love On a Two Way Street” for the Moments in 1970 and “Shame Shame Shame” for Shirley & Company in 1975. In 1973 Sylvia also recorded the hit “Pillow Talk,” which went to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Her debut album with Mickey, “New Sounds,” was released by Vik records in 1957 and can sell for $350.00 today. “Love is Strange” is just one of the over 1,000,000 record values you’ll find listed on the “Mighty John Record Appraisal Guide” on CD, available in the left hand column.
