CASH IN THE AT­TIC

YOURS (UK) - - Good To Know -

Some singers trans­formed their im­age as they changed their style of mu­sic and this can be re­flected in an item’s value. David Bowie is a prime ex­am­ple and prices have been ris­ing since his death. His in­car­na­tion as Ziggy Star­dust lasted from 1971-1973 and prices for mem­o­ra­bilia from this era are high. The most valu­able pieces have a story be­hind them, such as the orig­i­nal cover of Bowie’s 1970 album The Man Who Sold The World (right), on which he wore a dress and that was hastily with­drawn. A copy of this album sold in 2003 for £320.
