Discogs confirms the Most Expensive Item Sold for August 2018 is a 2xLP Red Color Variant Japanese Promo of  Pink Floyd's Ummagumma,  which went for  $13,953USD.

The  Ummagumma white label, red vinyl variant promo is ultra-rare amongst Pink Floyd releases, as the red variant was used only for promo while the black color variant was stock. This is contrary to typical releases at the time, where black vinyl was used for both promo and stock.

Discogs' Discography Specialist  Brent Greissle adds, “Given that it’s Floyd, I’d assume not many promo copies were made, given the lack of actual effort needed to promote it. I’d also assume that radio stations would have played their copies to death, so good, clean copies would be hyper-rare.”

Other notable items,  Davie Jones With The King Bees' 1964 UK 7"  Liza Jane sells for $3,947.00USD and a 1979 US 7" from  Opus entitled  The Atrocity / Good Procedures sells for $3,947USD. Discogs users dropped over  $67,000USD across 30 releases in August's Most Expensive Items Sold.
