Most Expensive January 2022

Top 30 Most Expensive Items Sold on Discogs in January 2022

The January 2022 most expensive list has arrived and it features a few hefty box sets, releases from former Beatles, punk rarities, and a soundtrack for one of the ’70s most unforgettable animated films.

A Rolling Stones box set, Led Zeppelin box set, and multiple Beatles box sets sold for higher than average prices in the month of January. John Lennon and Paul McCartney records also made this month’s list as Happy Xmas (War Is Over) and two copies of McCartney III inspired vinyl collectors to splurge on some high-priced pressings.

A test pressing of the debut EP by The Controllers and an obscure self-released 7-inch from Australian band Babeez provide the list with a shot of late ’70s punk adrenaline. The soundtrack for the 1973 animated film Belladonna of Sadness also made the list with its unique blend of psychedelic free jazz and pop folk.

Other notable releases include a hand-decorated Guided By Voices LP and a copy of the sole vinyl pressing of Dirty Funker‘s Flat Beat.
