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.
BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN 18 Tracks (Rare original 1999 US 18-track double vinyl LP comprising a selection of recordings from the 1998 ‘Tracks’ box set which features demos and outtakes from The Boss’ career. This selection is aimed at the more casualSpringsteen listener, with a demo version of uber-hit ‘Born In The USA’, the fantastic ‘The Promise’ and ‘Janey Don’t Lose Heart’. The two vinyl discs look barely played with their lyric printed inners housed in its single pocket picture sleevewhich retains its hype-stickered opened shrinkwrap).
THE CARDIGANS Life (Rare 1995 UK Stockholm Records 13-track vinyl LP – their second studio album including Carnival and a cover version of Sabbath Bloody Sabbath!, picture sleeve. The sleeve has a small crease in one corner, whilst the vinyl has just a few light paper scuffs not impacting play. A great copy!).
