Another month, another list of the best-selling records purchased in the Discogs Marketplace. The June 2022 list includes a ton of Kate Bush, Record Store Day titles, and multiple live albums, so let’s dive in.
Kate Bush continues to dominate after her recent boost from Stranger Things. Out of the 50 records featured here, seven of them belong to Bush. Three versions of the Running Up That Hill single, three pressings of Hounds Of Love, and a compilation called The Whole Story all made the list and prove that the Kate Bush renaissance is more than just a streaming sensation.
Due to worldwide vinyl manufacturing delays, certain Record Store Day titles weren’t released until June 18, 2022. With a fresh drop in June, it’s no wonder that this best-selling list includes numerous RSD releases. Albums from The Artist (Formerly Known As Prince), The Bobby Hamilton Quintet Unlimited, Voivod, and Viktor Vaughn (aka MF DOOM) were among the many Record Store Day releases that ended up being hot commodities in June 2022.
Another interesting trend this month is the number of live albums that collectors couldn’t help but snatch up. The merit of live recordings can be a divisive topic, but releases from Pearl Jam, Miles Davis, Peter Gabriel, and Slash all make a strong argument that music fans are more than happy to add live records to their collections.
