Top 25 Most Expensive Items Sold on Discogs in March 2023

The priciest music releases sold in the Discogs Marketplace last month include rare punk and black metal records, elaborate box sets, and hard-to-find 45s.

March 2023 was a big month for rare punk and metal records. The debut 7-inch from legendary hardcore punk band The Fix claimed the top spot last month. According to the database, less than 200 copies exist as 15 copies of the 200-record run were damaged during the pressing process. The original pressing of Mayhem’s Deathcrush also cracked the top three and proved once again that black metal fans are among the most serious record collectors.

March was also filled with extravagant box sets selling for top dollar. A giant Grateful Dead set that includes 80 CDs of exclusive live material sold for big bucks. A limited 6 x LP box set released by The Weeknd made the top 25 as the set is limited to 500 hand-numbered copies. Ozzy Osbourne’s See You On The Other Side also attracted the attention of a die-hard music fan in March with 24 unique hand-poured splatter LPs. As impressive as these sets are, the Depeche Mode Ultra box set featured here may be the most intriguing of them all. With a CD, VHS tape, and promo shirt, this rare artifact made a Depeche Mode fan very happy in March.

Other notable releases include a rare Elvis 7-inch, sought-after soul 45s released by Papa Bear And The Cubs and Jerry Butler And The Impressions, and an acetate of The Cure’s Let’s Go To Bed single.
