Discogs’ Top 50 Best Selling Records Of April 2017

by Diognes_The_Fox

Record Store Day. When I pulled the best selling records of April list up, I assumed I was looking at the wrong query or I had got something horrifically wrong. Nope. RSD struck again this April. Fresh vinyl reissues are. Well needed. Stock injections help offset the demand for vinyl that was pressed during the dark ages of the ’90s to ’00s. I have no qualms with this. Demon Days should be an easy to find staple.
Beware, though, of manufactured scarcity. Take note of what happened to comic books in the 1980s and 1990s. Records became valuable because nobody cared. Many copies got played to death and eventually trashed. New records that are being marketed towards collectors as collector items get sealed in a poly-bag forever. They are going to pretty much stay close to mint until the end of time. So-called ‘investment’ purchases never rarely get played too. How’s the demand for a record going to grow if you don’t share it with anyone? Anyways, rant over. Play your records often and with friends present. Be safe, be well and until next time, leave a comment.
