Top 50 Best-Selling Records on Discogs in September 2021

If you want to discover something new, taking a look at the monthly best-selling list is a great way to get recommendations and see what the Discogs Community is collecting. By determining how many purchases were made by Discogs users in the Marketplace, it becomes clear that certain releases, labels, and artists are inspiring music fans to add to their Collections.
This month, there’s an eclectic mix of records that range from bonafide classics to mash-ups you never knew you needed, like Bobby Ramone’s Rocket To Kingston. Bobby Ramone is an alias for Bob Marley as this pastiche punk release pairs his vocals with the music of the Ramones.
New albums and recent reissues make up the core of the list, but there are a few out of print outliers in the bunch. A 1988 European pressing of Tracy Chapman‘s debut record has once again made the list. Since the album has not been pressed on vinyl in over 30 years, the only option is to track down a used copy. A pressing of George Michael‘s Faith from 1987 has also returned to the list. There have been no vinyl reissues of this award-winning masterpiece since 1999.
A few brand new records are included more than once with different variants. The latest releases from Little Simz, Iron Maiden, and Turnstile are all on the list twice. With even more pressings to choose from, there’s a good chance that these new albums will continue to be featured as best-sellers throughout the end of the year.
