Top 50 Best-Selling Records on Discogs in June 2021

The best-selling records on Discogs surface trends in music the Community is collecting. The regular roundup is determined by how many purchases were made by Discogs users in the Marketplace each month. Typically, collectors are scoring a wide range of LPs, from popular titles to buzzy new names.

However, the May and June editions are overrun by 2021 releases and reissues. While fresh drops will routinely appear in the monthly ranking, it’s unusual for the vast majority of the top 50 to be brand-new records — and in June, only one record is not from 2021 (it was released way back in 2020).

So what lead to the 2021 domination of the June list? Record Store Day. The first of two 2021 events scheduled this summer took place on June 12. Following the release of hundreds of titles, many record stores, sellers, and collectors took to the Discogs Marketplace to sell vinyl or find the gem they couldn’t score in-store. Orders during the first RSD weekend were up 62,000, which translates to 102,000 records. Since the July 17 event was equally popular, we anticipate seeing even more RSD titles in next month’s ranking.
