USED VINYL ALERT
Heading downstairs for this week's used vinyl alert, it's a soul lover's paradise in the new arrivals this week, in addition to our deep and wide assortment of rock, jazz, folk, and hip hop.
Let's get to that soul. Quite a haul this week, including a lot of pristine copies of things you usually only see in well-played shape, and a lot of original covermount stickers and ephemera for yall who get into that sort of thing. Disco, funk, early crooners, rare boogie, we've got a little of everything. Check out heaters from names like the Emotions, Faze-O, the Coasters, Curtis Mayfield, Gwen McCrae, Parlet, Zapp, First Choice, the Royalettes, Isaac Hayes, Pleasure, Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Chiles & Pettiford, Chuck Berry, Marvin Gaye, Al Green, James Brown, Jimmy Holiday, Tower of Power, Janet Jackson, Vanity 6, Stevie Wonder, Candido, Dayton, Dexter Wansel, the Blackbyrds, Funkadelic, Delegation, and Tyrone Davis, and that's just when my hand got tired!
Some essential modern and vintage hip hop here this week. Check out big ones from Danny Brown, Wu Tang Clan, Vince Staples, ASAP Ferg, Flying Lotus, the Beastie Boys, Tribe, Tyler the Creator, King Geedorah, and Earl Sweatshirt.
We've got classic ones from David Bowie, Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan, Led Zeppelin, the Kinks, Leonard Cohen, Van Morrison, the Doors, and a very deep run of Beatles LPs including rare pressings and color variants. The rock stuff continues with Dr. John, Genesis, Green Lyte Sunday, King Crimson, Elf, and Medusa, plus 80s waves from the Violent Femmes, Clash, Tom Tom Club, INXS, Pat Benatar, the Style Council, Madness, Berlin, the Romantics, Elvis Costello, Guns n Roses, and Patti Smith.
We've got some heavy jazz from John McLaughlin, Larry Coryell, John Coltrane, and Johnny 'Hammond' Smith. Reggae comes in from Bob Marley and Gregory Isaacs. Roots music from all over creation this week from Doc Watson, Leon Bibb, John Fahey, Hank Snow, the Parton Family, a slew of rare and obscure cajun music compilations, virtually the entire Johnny Cash discography (a tall order, but we've come close here), Woody Guthrie, BB King, Merle Haggard, and Loretta Lynn.
Newer releases come through from Radiohead, Waxahatchee, the Flaming Lips, Temper Trap, and the Pixies. And speaking of new records, we've done a rather large sweep of housekeeping from the new bins upstairs, and the sale bin is full of more quality, still-to-be-owned records than ever. Have a look for some jazz, electronic, psych, rock, and experimental jams. You might just find your new favorite record for half the price!
