Top 50 Best-Selling Records on Discogs in March 2021

The best-selling records on Discogs show us the trends in music the Community is collecting. Our regular roundup is determined by how many purchases were made by Discogs users in the Marketplace each month.

In March 2021, we are seeing an uptick in multiple albums from the same artists. For example, although Daft Punk are no strangers to the monthly best-selling lists, two titles cracked the top 10 following the news of their breakup early this year. Similarly, there’s a continued trend from the beginning of 2021 in original Taylor Swift releases due to her recent announcement that she will begin re-recording these earlier albums. The one-and-only MF DOOM, who passed in 2020, also has several releases in this ranking, including an LP under the alias King Ghidra AKA King Geedorah and a collab with Madlib, who can claim another album in the March edition.

What’s even more interesting is that there are not one, but two different albums with two pressings each. The first is Floating Points and Pharoah Sanders with the London Symphony Orchestra, which boasts a regular vinyl and a limited-edition 180-gram version. The second is Kid Cudi’s Man on the Moon, both the original 2009 release and the brand-new 2021 reissue from Vinyl Me, Please.
