The advent of CD’s seemed like the death knell for vinyl during the ‘90s. That was only made worse by file sharing becoming popular as the decade came to a close and edged into the early ‘00s. We now know that vinyl would have an unprecedented resurgence in later years, which has led to collectors desperately seeking out original pressings from the ‘90s. Those rare Creation records pressings that shaped alternative music as we know it today, the rare pressings of iconic grunge records that are white whales for many, and weird and wonderful electronic music are always popular with completists.
Finding original ‘90s pressings is hard for anyone, ourselves included, but it does happen, and we have great stock of some rarities over at eil.com now.
THE CURE Mixed Up (1990 UK 12-track double vinyl LP featuring remixes of classic Cure tunes, housed in a hype stickered picture sleeve with original picture/tracklisting inners which is in superb condition and the vinyl has just a couple of light spindle marks to indicate play FIXLP18).
SWERVEDRIVER Mezcal Head (Rare original 1993 UK 10-track vinyl LP released on the legendary Creation label, the second studio album from the alternative rockers which spawned the singles For Seeking Heat, Last Train To Satansville and their biggest hit Duel. The picture sleeve has minimal shelfwear and comes with the inner which contains quotations from the songs & credits while the vinyl has spindlewear to the label and just a few couple of hairline scuffs to show for its twenty fiveplus years but remains in otherwise excellent condition CRELP143).
REM Monster (Classic 1994 German 12-track vinyl LP, complete with illustrated credits inner, picture sleeve. The sleeve has just a little light edge and spine wear, but the vinyl remains in near ‘as new’ condition with few signs of play).
