We’re celebrating Studio One’s release of Freddie McKay’s ‘Picture On The Wall: Deluxe Edition’ with the top selling records on the site of all time under the Reggae genre banner. This Top 10 encompasses a few different styles with a lot of emphasis on earlier ones like Rocksteady and Ska. I’m not exactly a reggae expert, so I did my best here as everything was totally new to me. Dig in and let me know what you think. ‘Picture On The Wall: Deluxe Edition’ is available exclusively through Studio One’s Discogs Marketplace.
Here are the top 10 most expensive reggae records ever sold on Discogs:
Sometimes it’s easy to tell based on the sound how much a record is worth, but sometimes it’s not. It’s a great sound, but there are a lot consistently high coin sales here.
I bet this is actually cool. So many of these have the worst samples available online. Please more 64K mp3s that sound like they were recorded over shortwave.
This is a Nigerian record that primarily gets labelled as Afro Psych. Even though it’s not exactly what I had in mind when making this list, I felt it was good enough to include.
This is probably the first and possibly only time an Unknown Artist – Untitled type release has made it to a top selling list. I was unable to find any samples of this, but I do like dub, so I’m assuming it’s amazing.
This record is primarily pitched as Afro-Boogie and is really good, but apparently has some reggae overlap. None of the samples provided really showed that, but it’s a cool record.
Ah yes, the mythical second Demon Fuzz record. This is good and expensive, but good. Someone reissue this, please.
