Original Bowie Vinyl Breaks Discogs' Most Expensive Record
An original vinyl pressing of David Bowie's second album (the cover below) has become the most expensive album in the history of record collectors' website Discogs.
The self-titled album (later renamed 'Space Oddity') was released in 1969.
An original UK pressing of the LP fetched $6,826 in a recent sale, beating a previous record set by NYC punk crew Judge, whose 1989's album 'Chung King Can Suck It' limited-edition 12" sold for $6,048 in 2015.
The news was announced via a blog on the Discogs website, which read: "Finding a good copy of the first UK pressing of [Bowie's] album is no easy feat. Is it almost $7k difficult? Maybe not."
