With a Market Watch countdown like this one, it’s tough to spot record market trends. We’ve got a variety of genres — Northern Soul, grunge, British Invasion, funk, vintage blues, classical — and formats — 45s, 78s, LPs, promos. So what rocks record-buyers’ worlds the hardest? You’ll just have to keep reading to find out.
Yeah, The Beatles tend to find their way into nearly every Market Watch countdown ever. But Nirvana and Bad Brains are keeping The Fabs company this week.
From rare Leaf Hound vinyl to a LP set of Bach, it’s a diverse grouping in our latest Market Watch
We’ve got a something for almost every collector’s tastes in this Market Watch countdown: a withdrawn release, a boutique pressing and even an old-time rarity.
Jazz records — especially ones from Lee Morgan — hit all the right notes with record buyers in online auctions. Of course, there was still plenty of room for genres, including grunge, rockabilly and all-out hard rock. So what record took top honors?
Jazz records take honors for most dominant genre on this week’s countdown. As far as format is concerned, it’s a collector’s paradise. We’ve got the usual LPs and 45s, plus a rare 1960s acetate, a modern test pressing and a set of glow-in-the-dark vinyl 7-inch records you’ve got to see to believe.
This week’s Market Watch is a great example of how many different areas of collecting are vibrant, if you just take the time too look.

When you think of items that command six-figure price tags, fine art, fine wines and fine jewelry may spring to mind.
