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.
MASSIVE ATTACK Mezzanine (1998 UK limited edition 11-track double LP pressed on heavyweight vinyl, one of the biggest records of the nineties & deservedly so, including the singles Angel, Risingson & Inertia Creeps, picture sleeve with illustrated inners. Confirming this to be a first press, the matrices in the dead wax read: WBRLPA-1-1-1/B-1-1-1/ C-1-1-D-1-1-1. The sleeve shows little of its age & both vinyl discs are Excellent with little evidence of play WBRLP4).
THE DOGS D’AMOUR Dogs Hits & Bootleg Album (1991 UK limited edition double vinyl LP consisting of the 19-track hits compilation album, and bonus 11-track ‘Un-Authorised Bootleg’ album. This item is limited edition number 00003 making ithighly collectable! The stickered glossy picture sleeve shows only light storage wear to the edges whilst the vinyl appears barely played WOL1020).
SPACE Space (Rare 1990 UK limited edition 8-track vinyl LP on the KLF Communications label. Released around the same time as ‘Chill Out’, this album received far less acclaim – why!? It’s choc-full of arrpegiated synths, moody soundscapes and long moments of silence [it’s definitely a late night listen!]. The glossy picture sleeve shows just a little shelfwear while the vinyl appears barely played SPACELP1).
