In this edition of Market Watch, find out how much online auction buyers spent on extra-black metal, a mountain of 45s and some classic rock standards.
This Market Watch countdown might be shorter than some of the others we’ve seen in Goldmine, but the records are just as sweet, with a mix of psychedelia, funk, hard-rock, British Invasion and even an historic recording.
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We’ve got a something for almost every collector’s tastes in this Market Watch countdown: a withdrawn release, a boutique pressing and even an old-time rarity.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.
No, you’re not seeing double, but a lot of this week’s Market Watch auction results sure look that way. Which artists have doubled up on the countdown? And whose double play brings in the biggest coin?
