The VINYL Thread!

The other thread was more about the kickstarter campaign that sort of segued into an unofficial vinyl discussion-type thread, so I thought I'd start a brand new dedicated VINYL thread here. Also, I did do a search to see if there was already a dedicated vinyl thread and I didn't find one.

Here are some of my recent vinyl purchases:

Julien-K - Death to Analog
The Sounds - Something To Die For
The Sounds - Crossing The Rubicon
The Misfits - Collection I
The Misfits - Collection II
Black Flag - Slip It In
The Hives - The Black and White Album
Tom Waits - Closing Time
Tom Waits - Blood Money


I have a couple vinyl on pre-order like the new Blade Runner score, David Bowie's latest, and the upcoming "13" album from Black Sabbath.


I'm totally digging the resurgence of vinyl within the last 5 years (if that). When I was a kid in the mid-80's I had about a dozen hard rock-metal vinyls that me and a friend bought from K-Mart, but my friend's uncle had told his mom (and his mom told my mom) that we were listening to satanic music and all of our vinyls got promptly chucked into the garbage can. That and the fact that I was no longer able to listen to anything that had a guitar riff is what got me into rap and hip-hop until about 91-92, when Nirvana and RHCP got big. Nirvana had Nevermind and RHCP had Blood Sugar Sex Magik and I came back to the rock fold. I also discovered Queen and Kiss around the same time and they amplified my rock 'n roll interests. I still dig hip-hop but I'm extremely selective. I like Beastie Boys, Notorious B.I.G., etc.

So what I'm trying to say is that vinyl rules.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I've also ordered the new Bowie album on vinyl from Amazon.

I've actually cut back on my vinyl purchasing lately, because I've been running out of space to store records.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Love vinyl. It's all I buy nowadays (although the occasional Amazon MP3 sale might catch my eye)

Have Bowie's The Next Day, Depeche Mode's Delta Machine and Vampire Weekend's Modern Vampires Of The City preordered on wax.

Also picked up a few classic rock records the other day at a Peddler's Mall. Zep's Houses Of The Holy, Pink Floyd's Meddle, Rush's Signals, Alice Cooper's Trash and Supertramp's Breakfast In America.

Zep and Floyd are now the two I'm going to try and concentrate on since I have all the Bowie (besides a few late period albums I'm not spending $200 on like Earthling), Beatles and some of my other faves that I need.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

The one guilty pleasure that I also just bought that I forgot to mention was Dead or Alive's "Youthquake," with You Spin Me 'Round (that's my song!) on there. I have memories of getting my groove on at the house of the family that I used to get babysat in. They owned one of those gigantic console things that had a turntable but was a furniture component of some kind. Some of the lady's kids were older, so they had quite a few vinyls that they would throw in and we'd listen to. I remember the bass levels were outrageous on that thing. Good times.

They're starting to trickle in.

BTW, I don't think we should spoil for size on this thread, because that would take the fun out of the whole vinyl aesthetic. Presentation is part of it. At least that's how I feel. Mods?

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I like vinyl but haven't bought a ton recently. My only issues with it is that you obviously can't just take a vinyl record on the go with you and listen to it wherever and I listen to a lot of music either in my car or at the gym or whatever.

I did just receive the latest Vault Package from Third Man Records which included a older Jack White live album called Jack White & The Bricks as well as a Brendan Benson and Jack White single featuring some demos for The Raconteurs. I also received the Pearl Jam 2012 holiday single.

I wouldn't mind picking up the Sound City release on vinyl sometime even though I already have the CD.

The only thing I don't like about RSD is how expensive everything is. You'd think the records would be cheaper, but no, usually a premium.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Why do you like vinyl? I haven't bought anything on vinyl since the 1980s. I can listen to music without having to jump up every eighteen minutes. I don't hear static discharge. Scratches on CDs don't make any noise (until they become unplayable).

I still have my collection, but I only listen to records a couple of times a year.

Record Store Day is a nice idea but seems poorly executed in my opinion. The prices aren't that great and stores aren't even guaranteed to have all the titles so you never even know if you'll get what you actually want. It seems more like another thing for scalpers on eBay to make money off of people who are actually fans.

I think it's a cool thing. I missed out as a child and now am having more fun being engaged with the music than if I were to pop in a CD or listen to tunes on my computer and on the go. I'm now forced to participate.

It's a much more interactive experience, imo. I can play a record, sit back, read the notes or lyrics while sipping on a libation as I am being engaged. It's pretty romantic in a way. IDK how else to describe it.

I'll be trying as well. These probably won't last as long as a Mondo poster release - so best to try and get one early.

Well the posters usually sell out instantly. By all accounts there will be thousands of these for sale. It will still sell out, but I think it will take a bit of time by their standards, and of course within an hour there will be hundreds on eBay. In a couple weeks I wouldn't be surprised if you can get it below cost. The mondo bubble is bursting, if it hasn't already.

oops - yeah I wrote that completely wrong sorry. these will definitely last longer than the poster drops, which normally sell out in a minute or two.

The Poltergeist LP was on sale for a few days before selling out.

I don't believe I have good enough gear or a good enough ear to hear a huge difference but I like the old-school packaging. It's SO much better than it was in the old days too. Thicker paper, better sleeves, thicker vinyl.

New vinyl usually comes with a CD or mp3 codes and old vinyl is cheap.

Well, thats the point. You go to your record store and see what they have and buy other shit while you are there. It's not just a day to go buy stuff you'll be selling on eBay, it's a day to support the indie record store and not just by buying the exclusive crap.

BY the way, was it last year?, I traveled around to 3 different stores to find the red vinyl Wilco 10" and never found one. Bought one on eBay for about the same price only to find out Wilco was selling it on their website for months after RSD. The shit should be EXCLUSIVE if it has a RSD designation.

And it's sold out. Wow, looks like people bought 2-3 each, because for a moment I had 2 in my cart then decided to cancel one and just get the 1.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Update from Mondo

Quote:
**UPDATE** Wow. We sold out of the entire edition of DRIVE in under 30 minutes. Thank you so much for making our record label such an enormous success. If you missed out on the record, please do not send us angry e-mails. There is still hope.

There will be a exclusive Picture Disc version of this LP on RECORD STORE DAY (Record Stores only, obviously) AND this regular edition will be in record stores sometime later this spring (We will announce the Street Date once it is confirmed)

Thank you, again, from the bottom of our hearts.
