Read a list of David Bowie’s favourite vinyl records: A list of David Bowie’s favourite vinyl records has been unearthed. In 2003, Bowie sifted through his collection of 2,500 vinyl LPs for Vanity Fair and composed a list of his 25 favourites. It follows a similar list of Bowie’s favourite books. “There is really no way to do a list of my favourite albums with any rationality…I’ll look through the albums and pull together a list of those I have re-bought or am in the process of re-buying on CD. I have little time, and there are just too many to sort through. So, I’ll keep pulling stuff out blindly, and if it’s too obvious (Sgt. Pepper, Nirvana) I’ll put it back again till I find something more interesting.”

Prince Broke The Records For The Highest Selling Vinyl And Cassette On Discogs: Being a Prince superfan ain’t cheap.

And in August, a few months later, a rare Prince release became the site’s most expensive cassette ever sold. As The Vinyl Factory reports, The Versace Experience – Prelude 2 Gold, a cassette featuring remixed versions of The Gold Experience tracks handed out to attendees of Versace’s show at the 1995 Paris Fashion Week, sold for a record-breaking $4087.
