Used Vinyl LP Alert

Heading downstairs for this week's Used Vinyl Alert, we close out 2022 with a slew of timeless albums to add to your collection. We get things started with clean copies of all-time classic LPs from The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Frank Zappa, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Dylan, Blondie, The Ventures, Queen, & Led Zeppelin, alongside others that don't come around too often, from Link Wray, Brian Eno, David Byrne, Richard Hell & Voidoids, Cowboy Junkies, Ozzy Osbourne, Buckingham & Nicks, and Lydia Lunch.

Soul is in this week from Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder, Sly & The Family Stone, Bar-Kays, S.O.S. Band, Eddie Kendricks, Roberta Flack, & Isaac Hayes, among others. Jazz & vocals are here from Horace Silver, Herbie Hancock, Doug Richardson, Dollar Brand, Ahmad Jamal, Miles Davis, Nina Simone, Billie Holliday & Ella Fitzgerald.

Country, blues, & folk gems are in from Guy Clark, Waylon Jennings, Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Fenton Robinson, Curtis Jones, Robbie Basho, Tony Rice, John Prine, & Pete Seeger (along with a nice stash of Folkways LPs).

We round things out this week with some clean classical LPs, a healthy supply of soundtracks in top condition, reggae from Jimmy Cliff, Dennis Brown, & Bob Marley (and the great Rockers OST), along with a trove of international/folk LPs.

Holiday Groove 2022

After the terrorist attacks on September 11th, 2001, we launched this holiday tradition to spread some much needed joy and spirit. This year's holiday groove is in its 22nd edition and we hope the effect remains the same (in this year where we could all really use it)...happy holidays from all of us at Strictly Discs.
