While music was more popular during the 90’s than virtually any other decade, vinyl was on the decline. CD was the chosen format, rendering cassettes almost 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 the latest arrivals at eil.com.
THE LA’S The La’s (Very Rare 1990 Greek 12-track white label vinyl test pressing for the debut album from The La’s, which includes the beloved single There She Goes, along with Way Out, Timeless Melody and more. Housed in a picture sleeve with greek text on the reverse and the catalogue number hand-written on to the label. The sleeve shows some minor wear from storage over the years, and while the vinyl does display some minor paper scuffs, it remains in superb condition. Finding test-pressings from the ’90s is hard enough, but to find a Greek pressing of this iconic album is something very special. The first time we have ever seen one of these here, and unlikely to be repeated. Essential for ’90s indie collectors 828202-1)
THE BREEDERS Last Splash (Original 1993 UK 4AD 15-track vinyl LP, with glossy picture sleeve and picture/lyric inner. Includes their belove single, Cannonball. The sleeve shows minimal wear, and aside from one or two inaudible paper scuffs from being taken in and out of the inner, the vinyl displays little evidence of play CAD3014).
STONE ROSES Second Coming (1994 UK limited edition 12-track double vinyl LP, the second and final album from the iconic Mancunian band, including Ten Story Love Song & Love Spreads. The glossy gatefold picture sleeve shows just a little lightedgewear, while the vinyl displays little evidence of play GEF24503).
