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.
THE LA’s The La’s (Rare 1990 UK first pressing 12-track vinyl LP with black & green labels, including There She Goes, Timeless Melody & Feelin’, picture sleeve with picture/lyric inner. The sleeve displays minimal wear along with the inner, whilst the vinyl has just a couple of very light hairlines, otherwise looks barely played. A fantastic example).
NEIL YOUNG & CRAZY HORSE Ragged Glory (Rare 1990 UK/German-pressed 10-track LP, complete with illustrated album credits inner & glossy fish eye lens style picture sleeve with the original shop price sticker attached. This is a fantastic one owner copy, the sleeve displays just a little light edge wear and the vinyl is near ‘as new’ looking unplayed WX374).
U2 Zooropa (1993 UK 11-track LP, complete with the digital graphics inner, lyric insert & picture sleeve. The packaging is Excellent with minimal edge wear & the vinyl is strictly graded VG due to multiple paper hairlines which have very little to no effect on play U29).
