Top 25 Best-Selling Records on Discogs in January 2023

Releases from Frank Ocean, Television, C418, Jeff Beck, and David Crosby were the most popular at the beginning of the year.

The January 2023 best-selling list is here and it features 1980s classics, electronic records, and releases from artists that the music world recently lost.

Original pressings of ’80s albums claimed multiple spots on the best-selling list. Records from Sade, Michael Jackson, and Tracy Chapman all ended up in the top 25 for January 2023. Tracy Chapman often makes the list as her self-titled album has been out of print for years, but it’s a different story for Sade and Michael Jackson. There are large quantities of these ’80s pressings on Discogs and each release has a median price that comes in below many of the more recent reissues. Collectors looking for a great album at a great price are flocking to older, used copies of these classics.

Modern classics like the long-awaited reissue of Frank Ocean’s Blond also made the list. The latest version has changed the spelling to Blonde, which may be an attempt to help differentiate it from the unofficial versions that have appeared in recent years.

Two releases from C418, a Warp Records compilation, and a Machine Girl album all made January 2023 a big month for electronic music. Both C418 records feature music composed for the popular game Minecraft, which speaks to the popularity of video games and soundtracks within the Discogs community.

The recent loss of David Crosby, Jeff Beck, and Tom Verlaine inspired music fans to collect their solo albums and records from bands like Television and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. David Crosby appears multiple times on the list, but a recent reissue of Television’s Marquee Moon claimed a spot in the top 3.
