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.
BOB MOULD Black Sheets Of Rain (1990 UK 11-track vinyl LP, the second solo album by the former Hüsker Dü guitarist and singer, lyric printed inner and glossy picture sleeve. The sleeve displays minimal wear and the inner has no splits or rips, whilst the vinyl looks barely played. A really nice example and the first we have seen in ten years VUSLP21).
STEREOLAB Dots And Loops (1997 UK Limited Edition 10-track double LP pressed on WHITE & GREEN vinyl, complete with illustrated lyric inners, picture sleeve. The sleeve shows just light shelfwear with a few minorscuffs & a bit of edge scuffing and the vinyl remains in excellent condition with little sign of play D-UHF-D17).
PHIL COLLINS Both Sides (Rare 1993 UK AUTOGRAPHED 11-track double LP, including the singles Both Sides Of The Story, Everyday, We Wait & We Wonder & Can’t Turn Back The Years, hype-stickered gatefold picture sleeve with the lyrics inside.
