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.
BJORK Homogenic (1997 UK 10-track LP pressed on heavyweight vinyl, including the singles All Is Full Of Love, Bachelorette and Hunter, picture sleeve with printed lyric inner and bonus fold-out poster. The back of the sleeve has just avery small tear in the bottom edge of the left seam, otherwise the sleeve shows minimal wear; the poster has just one slight corner crease from storage and the vinyl remains in near mint condition.
