USED VINYL ALERT
Heading downstairs for this week's Used Vinyl Alert, it's a whole lot more than your average New Arrivals this go round. Lots of unique titles we haven't ever seen (unless we forgot, but that never happens) in nearly every genre make up a collection that definitely requires a deep dive!
We've got some big ones from big names like the Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, the Doors, the Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, Grateful Dead (and offshoots like Old & In The Way), the Stones, the Zombies, and some delectable and collectable Bob Dylan boots!
Even more R&R comes through from the Yardbirds, Sly, the Allmans, Jimmy Buffett, Dave Clark, the Rip Chords, Roxy Music, the Kinks, King Crimson, the Eagles, Dusty Springfield, the Monkees, and Dr. John. We've got some cool regional rock comps, plus obscure ones from Morning, Space Needle, Blackwell, and Aynsley Dunbar.
Lots of great folk and trad this week from household names and names known in only a few houses: Jay Bolotin, Loudon Wainwright III, Mary MacGregor, Kirk Felix, Lem Fowler, Tim Hardin, Joan Baez, Peter Lang, Larry Heagle, Odetta, Guy Clark, Will Holt, Sandy Bull, David Ackles, the Incredible String Band, Fairport Convention, and Bert Jansch.
Lots of fun in the punk, synthpop and new wave zones this time round, check out good'ns from Spandau Ballet, Colourbox, 10,000 Maniacs, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Oingo Boingo, The Mission, Violent Femmes, the Ramones, PIL, the English Beat, the Selecter, Nick Lowe, Talking Heads, Tav Falco, UB40, Scritti Politti, and Morrissey.
