Box sets and 70s rarities make up the majority of the Top 30 Most Expensive Items Sold List for the month of September. Coil is a band known for releasing hyper-limited oddities, and the incredibly scarce “Live Box” sold for a whopping $3,130! Only 23 copies exist of this release, complete with hand-drawn designs and autographs from John Balance making it quite a rare find indeed, and the highest selling item of the month by a good margin. Coming in at number 2 is Prince with his controversial “Black Album“. This US release was highly limited to only 50 copies on grey wax, and was issued by Warner Brothers in a unique numbered and stamped edition. This marks the first time the release being sold in the Discogs marketplace. At the three spot is a massive 33 album box set from Die Toten Hosen consisting of every album they’ve released since 1983. Housed in a wooden case and signed by all the members, this is quite the compilation to own for Die Toten Hosen fans! A 1984 re-release of Pink Floyd‘s “Wish You Were Here” is the fourth highest seller for the month which was pressed and released for readers of Hi-Fi Today magazine. Krautrock superstars Can fill up the five spot with an extremely rare and original German pressing of “Ege Bam Yasi“, complete with the originally issued poster!
Some other notable entries include a rare edition of the new Aphex Twin “Syro” album, limited to 200 copies and sold to individuals who entered a drawing for a chance to buy a copy from Warp Records. Just as the previous month, the box set “Live After Deaf” from Ryan Adams pops up on the list, while yet another US promo version of Prince’s “Black Album” on white vinyl appears.
