The site has also released the top 20 best selling vinyl variant releases for January – March 2018.

Discogs has announced its vinyl sales figures for 2017, reports the BBC.

Over 10 million records were sold on the site last year, an increase of 1.4 million from 2016.

In addition, Discogs revealed the top selling vinyl variant releases from January through March of this year, combining all formats into one master list.

There were some expected entries, including numbers 1 and 2 – a Scopex 4xLP reissue by Tresor and Yasuaki Shimizu’s Kakashi on WRWTFWW, as well as Andres’ seminal house roller ‘New For U’ at number 7.

The site also announced the 20 most expensive records sold on site over the same period, with The Beatles’ ‘Love Me Do’ 7” promo single taking the top spot for a cool $10,502.00

Though Bowie normally tops vinyl sales, a lá Record Store Day 2018, he was surprisingly absent from these charts.

Earlier this week, Nielsen and Official Charts reported that Record Store Day 2018 vinyl sales year hit an all-time high.
