Top 50 Best-Selling Records on Discogs in January 2022

By looking at how many purchases were made by Discogs users in the Marketplace, we can easily determine which records are already having a big impact in 2022.The January 2022 best-selling list provides some unique insight as we see what the Community is most excited about in the new year.

Once again, we’re seeing a best-selling list that includes multiple releases from legendary artists. Nirvana, David Bowie, Radiohead, Daft Punk, Mitski, and Taylor Swift all appear on the list more than once. The Lost In Translation soundtrack also tops the list twice with two different pressings in the top 10.

Artists with multiple releases on the list aren’t the only instance of déjà vu this month. Molchat Doma, Mariya Takeuchi, Ryo Fukui, Kid Cudi, and Kylie Minogue are among the artists that have cracked the top 50 for two months in a row.

Other notable releases include a repress of the Doing It In Lagos (Boogie, Pop & Disco In 1980s Nigeria) compilation, a recent pressing of Fugazi‘s self-titled EP on red vinyl, and Texas trio Khruangbin‘s 2020 album Mordechai on standard black wax.
