Top 30 Most Expensive Items Sold in January 2018


Our analysis of December’s most expensive items sold on Discogs was a bit odd, you know, just because of that real human skull thing. Now it’s time to go back to more common formats (we seriously don’t encourage musicians out there to publish their music in any sort of human remains). Vinyl is king this month with a copy of Prince’sBlack Album” that was sold for $5332.00. And if you happen to be filthy rich and a huge fan of him, be aware that there’s another copy available for €5,595.70 in our Marketplace.

But of course, there’s much more to this list of the most expensive items sold in January. Poking around here we can see another month with a staggering amount of punk records: Minor Threat and Negative Approach appear in very high positions; while more obscure records by Subway Suck, GG Allin, Razar, or Fun Things can be seen spread all around January’s top 30 most expensive list.

Samba, Jazz, Grunge, Soul… The most expensive items sold in January 2018 are an eclectic mix that are absolutely worth checking out.
