Una copia original prensada en UK del segundo álbum homónimo de David Bowie (1969) ha sido vendida en Discogs por 6.826 dólares. El disco, que más tarde sería re-lanzado con el nombre de “Space Oddity”, bate el récord del LP más caro jamás vendido en el mercado de la plataforma.
El director de marketing de Discogs, Ron Rich, ha dicho esto al respecto de la operación:
“As morbid as it sounds, there is usually a bump in sales in the marketplace for a given artist when they pass. Collectors look to grab that piece of history, they want to own that a piece of the story. Thanks to the accuracy of Discogs’ data this particular collector was able to pinpoint to that exact first pressing. The power of the first pressing is a classic supply-demand model. There are a finite number of that album and even fewer that were released under the title,David Bowie (it was later re-released as Space Oddity) – find one in good condition and you can relive that moment when you first listened to it. It’s tough to put a monetary value on that.”
