The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of March 2020

Album covers of the best selling records on Discogs in March 2020

Time again with the master of keyword chowder disaster to drop some questionable nuggets of thought on this terrible scene. Internet and dad favorite screaming red man King Crimson, Dark Side, Thriller, and a few other perennials there as always aside, I’m extremely unhip and live under a rock otherwise. Who are these artists? Probably […]

May the Fourth Be With You: A Guide to Star Wars Records

Star Wars is one of the undisputed greatest classic trilogies of movies of all times. The subsequent Droids & Ewoks cartoons were pretty rad too. The holiday special. Looking back, it’s amazing that these classics were preserved and untouched by revisionist edits, bad CGI upgrades, and other mistakes that often taint “remasters” of classic films. […]

Top 50 Best Selling Records February 2020

An amazingly varied list this month with both classics and new releases mixing things up. I know for many of us in these uncertain times, myself included, music is very important to help keep things moving along and keeping us out of deep pits of despair. My music has always been like a different place […]

Queens Of The Stone Age Songs for the Deaf album cover

New year, and a new tweak to the script that compiles the top 50! This shouldn’t have an effect on how the data gets counted, but there may be some minor hiccups between this and December’s charts for those of you who pay attention to those things. On with the list! A lot of Black Friday […]

December shall forever be a weird month for music. RSD Black Friday and the Christmas rush assure that very rarely a new unique release will shine through the noise of reissues and perennial holiday classics. Then there’s Tracy Chapman, who will always be on the top 50, no matter how hard I’ve tried in the […]

Another month, another list! There’s a lot new for this list, possibly thanks to RSD Black Friday. I’ll do my best to not report on the obvious reissues and barrel scrapings and try and focus on the odd gems here and there. The first thing that caught my eye was the use of the classic […]

I can’t believe enough copies of a single Moodymann record sold in a single month to make it to this list. I assumed most copies of his releases were quietly distributed through side channels and in VIP rooms of exclusive clubs between the who’s who of dance music. Speaking of dance music, the Four Tet […]

It began about five years ago with a question with a record store owner I was visiting for work. At the time, I was riding heavy on shop and record show visits and for a glorious year or so experienced a decent percent of the United States, experiences which I am eternally grateful for. Many […]

August was a time among others. I had a totally different post for this already written out, unfortunately it got lost somehow. It was far more rantier though and it’s probably for the best to lay off the salt a bit in these trying times. There’s a lot of good releases this month, and some […]

What’s this? Arabic music? Underground 12”s? A 3” record? July clearly was a breath of fresh air. This list is chock full of amazing gems from this past summer and definitely worth digging into. For once in a very long time this list was hard to finish as I just kept getting sucked into listening […]
