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 Debut (1993 UK first issue 11-track vinyl LP, including Human Behaviour, Venus As A Boy and Big Time Sensuality, top opening matt picture sleeve. The sleeve shows minimal shelfwear & the vinyl looks barely played TPLP31).
DEPECHE MODE Violator (Classic 1990 UK 9-track vinyl LP, including Personal Jesus & Enjoy The Silence, picture sleeve with illustrated lyric inner. The sleeve displays some light general wear but has no rips or splits, whilst the vinyl looks to have seen the turntable only a couple of times with minimal signs of play. A really nice example and essential to any record collection STUMM64).
