For better or worse, the ‘90s will be remembered for a lot of iconic moments, but mostly it will be for the music. There was the rise of Brit Pop and the battle between Oasis and Blur, Nirvana bringing grunge to the mainstream and influencing an entire generation to wear a plaid shirt, the Spice Girls taking over the world, and Jarvis Cocker exposing himself to Michael Jackson at the Brit Awards.
While music was more popular than virtually any other decade, vinyl was on the decline. CD was the chosen format, rendering cassettes obsolete, and causing vinyl sales to dwindle. Record companies began pressing less and stores rarely stocked anything other than the biggest selling titles. Now, many of the albums of the time are considered collector’s items and sell for premium prices.
We don’t always see that many collections of ‘90s vinyl here, but when we do, you can almost guarantee them to be of a high quality both in condition and content. Below are a few highlights we have in stock, and be sure to keep an eye on our latest arrivals.
Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Ragged Glory: Rare 1990 UK 10-track LP, pressed in Germany for the UK market, one of the more difficult albums to find on vinyl as it was a limited pressing due to the fact that the demand for vinyl was in decline in 1990, complete with illustrated album credits inner, picture sleeve. The sleeve shows just the lightest shelfwear & the vinyl remains near ‘as new’ with few signs of play.
Teenage Fanclub – The King: Scarce 1991 UK Creation label limited edition 9-track vinyl LP, which was made available for sale in the shops for one week only. Housed in a silver & gold ‘spray paint’ effect picture sleeve. The sleeve shows almost no trace of wear and the vinyl is in beautiful near mint condition
