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’s stage invasion during Michael Jackson’s performance 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.
Suede – Suede: Rare 1993 UK 11-track vinyl LP, their classic debut album including So Young, Animal Nitrate, Metal Mickey and The Drowners. Complete with the picture / lyric inner which is showing a little discolouration scuffing, the glossy picture sleeve displays a little shelfwear to the edges while the vinyl appears in excellent condition
Aphex Twin – Selected Ambient Works 85 – 92: Original 1992 Belgium first issue 13-track Double vinyl LP set, featuring a collection of groundbreaking early recordings crafted by acclaimed ambient/lo-fi whizz Richard D James, within a non-barcoded single-pocket black & white logo sleeve.
