Discogs Staff Top 30 Most Expensive Items Sold In Discogs Marketplace For February 2019

Who knows what bizarre adventures our Top 30 bring this month? Last time, we were mesmerized by the story behind that Burzum CD that sold for $1,500. Wild, isn’t it? Curiously enough, this month another record by him is the second most expensive item sold in the Discogs Marketplace. Paying $2,272.00 for a 12″ with three songs isn’t exactly our definition of bang for your buck, but to each their own.

We feel like it’s starting to fade away at this point, but the cultural impact Bohemian Rhapsody’ theatrical release was strong. The movie helped millions of new fans to connect with the already-huge British band Queen and put them back in the spotlight. In February, this very special edition of News Of The World sold for $1,592.00. What’s the catch? We’ll let you find out for yourself.

Paying attention to the rest of the chart, we see a solid mix of artists who will most likely ring the bell – Pink Floyd, Bathory, The Smiths, Darkthrone – with plenty of soul/funk singles. The latest is an unstoppable trend mostly fueled by collectors of the genre and DJs.

But what will really be remembered about this chart is its number one. For the first time ever on Discogs, the bebut single by The Sonics has been sold. We know what you’re thinking: That can’t be possible! Well, these are not The Sonics you know.

After a bit of research, and thanks to the community’s amazing contributions to the Discogs Database, we found The Sonics in question. Formed in Bangkok in the mid-’60s, we managed to find a Facebook page compiling some pictures from the band. And if you want to know the price of the single You Don’t Hear Me / Marshall, just scroll down to the bottom of the list.

jfl Babar the Elephant goes to the Kennedy Center

I grew up with Babar the Elephant. There was nothing that was not to love about the green-suited pachydermian and his friends. There might have been a brief time, in the teenage years, where I wouldn’t have actively sought out Babar in a concert hall or a similar such place. But like most silly phases, that, too, passed.

If you are also not of that brief awkward age of not loving Babar, you

Freya Parr Six of the best works by Florence Price

Rating: 
0

1) Symphony No. 1 (1931-2)

This substantial piece, which brought Price acclaim, is peppered with spiritual melodies and includes a third movement ‘Juba dance’, instead of a minuet and trio or scherzo. 

 

 

 

2) Piano Concerto (1930)

Reconstructed by Trevor Piston, this one-movement work features an intricate and challenging piano part, suggesting that Price was
a formidable player.

 

 

 

3) Symphony No. 3 (1940)

Symphony No. 2 is lost, but No. 3 in C Minor is a mature and consummate work after the youthful First Symphony and contains lush orchestration and rich melodic framing.

 

 

 

4) Violin Concerto No. 2 (1952)

Price’s rich, lyrical style is in evidence in her two violin concertos. She completed the First in 1939 and the Second, a single-movement work, in 1952. Its melodic lines strongly reflect her American South heritage.

 

 

 

5) Adoration for Organ (1951)

Price’s early work included pieces for piano and organ. She earned her living in the 1930s and 1940s playing the organ at church and film screenings. Her organ works are quite demanding.

 

 

 

6) I am Bound for the Kingdom (arr. 1937)

This was the song that got Price noticed by mass audiences when it was championed and recorded by contralto Marian Anderson (right) who herself won fame at her landmark 1939 Lincoln Memorial concert.
