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.
TEENAGE FANCLUB The King (Rare1991 UK Creation label limited edition 9-track vinyl LP, which was made available for sale in the shops for one week only. Housed in a silver & gold ‘spray paint’ effect picture sleeve. The sleeve shows only some minor corner creasing, while the vinyl itself remains in spectactular, near ‘as new’ condition CRELP096).
PETER GREEN’S FLEETWOOD MAC Live At The BBC (Limited Edition 1996 Japanese 36-track double LP, housed in an individually numbered gatefold picture sleeve featuring photographs, detailed notes & session information printed inside, complete with Japanese text insert, obi-strip & the Peter Green pin-up picture. The packaging is Excellent with some minor spots of foxing to show for its origin & the vinyl is Excellent with very little sign of play CRJL-4001~2).
JUDAS PRIEST Metal Works 73-93 (Rare 1993 UK 32-track double vinyl LP, housed in a glossy gatefold picture sleeve with ‘Special Purcase’ price sticker still attached, and the original illustrated inners with the band’s own comments on the songs. The sleeve has some edge and spinewear, but the inners are intact and, aside from a few minor surface scuffs, the vinyl looks barely played. A nice example of this hard to find Nineties pressing).
