USED VINYL ALERT

Heading downstairs for this week's Used Vinyl Alert, we've done our best to match the wealth of great new releases with an equally broad spread of vintage wax.

We've got a deep and varied selection of more recent releases, including some limited editions and other collectibles from names like Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Jack White, the Promise Ring, Beach House, Arcade Fire, Mastodon, Black Angels, Kings of Leon, Fear of Men, the Flaming Lips, and scads more.

Rock and pop classics turn up from Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, Prince, the Yardbirds, Neil Young, John Prine, Van Morrison, the Grateful Dead, Bob Seger and T. Rex, while we see some more obscure and rare things from Ultimate Spinach, Elyse, the Monkees, Siren, Tom Rapp, Dennis Wilson, Pollution, Emitt Rhodes, and High Tide. Plenty more crucial albums from names like Black Sabbath, Dio, Levon Helm, the Plimsouls, Talking Heads, Roxy Music, Paul Simon, the Who, Bruce Springsteen, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kiss, Janis Joplin, the Cars, CSNY, Joni Mitchell, and Blondie!

Check out loads of good ones from Charlie Parker, Albert Ammons, Barre Phillips, Ben Webster, Donald Byrd, Miles Davis, Jimmy Smith, Terje Rypdal, Sarah Vaughan, Oscar Peterson, Buddy Rich and Gene Krupa, Don Patterson, Dave Brubeck, Phil Woods, Karl Berger, Marion Brown, Oliver Nelson, Reggie Workman, Gil Evans, Archie Shepp, Steve Kuhn, Thelonious Monk, Eddie Russ, and Jaco Pastorius.

A cool trove of classic and forgotten 90s rap is in the building, some LPs and some EPs, from names like Del tha Funkee Homosapien, Bone Thugs, Digable Planets, Camron, UGK, Gorillaz, Ghostface, Mobb Deep, Dj Kool, the Geto Boys and many many more.

We wrap up with a selection of cool soundtracks, some audiophile LPs of interest, exotica and beyond from Esquivel, Martin Denny, Alfred Apaka, Irakere, Laurindo Almeida, Carlos Montoya, and Weird Al Yankovic, plus some cool electronic and modern composition from Tangerine Dream, Morton Subotnick, Lucy Railton, Michael Hoenig, Philip Glass, Oneohtrix Point Never, Caterina Barbieri, and Steve Reich!
