Just Arrived: A 600 piece 80’s and 90’s Vinyl Collection!
We’ve just put out one of the more interesting collections we’ve had in some time. It is roughly comprised of three distinct areas:
1) rare 90’s rock, a little over 200 titles
2) rock and classical audiophiles around 80 titles, and
3) jazz and blues reissues, around 200 titles
The 90’s, especially mid to late, was the low water mark of vinyl production. CDs, and then the rise of the internet with its downloads, really decimated the market, and most labels gave up LPs for dead. However, there were still a few that trickled out, and some boutique labels made small batches.
This collection features a pretty amazing assortment of these rarities. We don’t think we have ever had so many scarce records from this period in at one time before. It features titles from Pearl Jam, Phish, Springsteen, R.E.M, Sarah McLachlan, and many others.
The condition of most of these records are excellent. Many are still sealed, and the vinyl is immaculate, with just a few exceptions, on the rest. However, a small percentage of titles have some water damage on the covers. There doesn’t seem to be any mildew, and the water did not hit the records, but it is obvious on 20 records or so (over the whole collection, not just the 90’s records). We have, of course, reduced the price on these.
And speaking of price, please know that a lot of these records are not cheap, with many in the $25 to $100 range, and some super-rares fetching upwards of $200. We are below top-market value, but they’re still pretty pricey.
Note that these records are sold first come, first served. Many of these titles are in very high demand, so to be as fair as we can to everyone, please do not call us to ask to put any on hold. For those not familiar with our store, sorry, we are a walk-in store only and do not ship
By “audiophiles”, we mean those records that are sought after as much for their sonic qualities as for their music. Typically, they are on heavy virgin vinyl and much care is put in the transfer of the music to disc. This collection has a great assortment of titles, rock and classical, on such notable labels as Mobile Fidelity, Nautilus, DCC, Analogue Productions, Speaker’s Corner (from Germany), Classic Records and more. Many are still factory-sealed.
Jazz and Blues reissues
Finally, this collection has a very nice assortment of classic jazz, and blues reissues, all in excellent condition. The vast majority are on the OJC label (Original Jazz Classics), who bought up the rights to hundreds of titles and put them out in the 80’s and early 90’s. There are also some fantastic Impulse and Blue Note reissues of some of my all-time favorite records.
