Let's be honest—we're all still licking the wound of Daft Punk's shocking breakup.
In the wake of the robots' split, one fan made a splash with the purchase of a rare 2002 Japanese vinyl pressing of Discovery, the iconic electronic music duo's sophomore album. The 2xLP limited edition record sold for $2,380 on Discogs, who recently shared a list of the most expensive items sold on the marketplace in February 2021.
The most expensive item was New Horizons, a 1972 album by jazz collective The Sounds Of Liberation that sold for $7,777. Following that LP came Liza Jane by Davie Jones With The King Bees, which sold for $6,944, and a 7" Single of Magnetics' Count The Days / When I'm With My Baby that fetched $5,200, respectively.
