Discogs and RBMA launch Vinyl Marketwatch













    • The 'ongoing experiment'
      tracks 
      price movements of different
      genres on Discogs.
      Discogs and RBMA have teamed up for Vinyl Marketwatch, a new site that tracks record prices.

      The website is built a bit like a business news portal, with breaking news feeds, market trend graphs and stock information for individual genres (along with a video portion hosted by Sound Pellegrino's Teki Latex). The Vinyl Marketwatch uses the Discogs marketplace to track price changes within different genres: it keeps tabs on the 250 most wanted records for each style and analyzes the median price of (sold) items every day. (For example, on the day of publishing, prog rock had gone down 81 cents to a median price of $59.07.) You can also jump from the site to view individual genres on Discogs itself.

      RBMA also includes a disclaimer, stating: "As passionate music buyers ourselves, this site most definitely does not endorse speculative vinyl collector culture. This site is in fact a parody of that sorry state of affairs, and should be used for entertainment and general data purposes only."
