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 […]

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 […]

The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of December 2019


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 […]

The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of November 2019


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 […]

The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of September 2019


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 […]

What I Learned Reissuing Malaku Daku’s “Love Drums From The Ghetto”


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 […]

The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of August 2019


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 […]

The Discogs Top 50 Best Selling Records Of July 2019


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 […]

The Truth: An Interview With Connecticut Studio And Label Owner Tom Sokira

Part I: Preface It began with a list. Scratch that: it began ten years prior with a box of late 70’s / early 80’s VG arena rock in a good friend’s bedroom and what I thought was going to be an at best vaguely listenable local Christian folk record. When we brought it back to […]
