The Discogs Top 50 – August 2016

by Diognes_The_Fox

August seems to mark the least diverse month in the Top 50 so far. We have a total of ten brand new contenders on the list. The top four are exactly the same as were were last month. The “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack is back. Things could be better. I predict that “Since I Left You” will remain a perennial seller for some time, now that it’s been reissued. I also predict that the same thing will happen with “Demon Days” once that receives an official reissue. Jaydee‘s “Plastic Dreams” is back on the charts. My research so far indicates it was a strong seller early on in the marketplace, but has since been overshadowed by classic rock & pop’s monolithic grip on used record sales. Don’t sleep on that Aleke Kanonu reissue too! While it didn’t make the Top 50 last month, it’s been a hot ticket! Stay tuned for more and let us know what you think down below!
