What's your best vinyl find?
Be it a rare album, a bargain or an old/weird record.
in some junk shop in Penzance for a total of £4.99 together or something close. I was obsessed with both albums at the time so that was a buzz.
Original pressing of The Queen is Dead for a couple of quid was a good one too.
It was a good day.
Seems a bit try hard to me.
Bring them on...
i remember finding a decent 192kbps rip of ELO's shit 1981 album Secret Messagers back in April 2010. What a rush that was! Gosh!
the gatefold edition
in that shop that was in the oasis market place in birmingham
£4.99 in Flashback Records
But that's pretty awesome.
I got into them after seeing them open for Los Campesinos! on their second US tour. The Golden Spike is pretty great, and well worth your time.
£3.99 from Lost in Music in Glasgow. Admittedly this was around 1995.
RHP records go for fuckloads on ebay.
One of the Pumpkins' rarest records (2000 or so?) under a pseudonym, extra points for it sounding like a Drop Nineteens song.
I did get the triple vinyl of Kano's first album for a tenner in HMV, it's a beast of an album that felt like a bargain!
A record shop was closing down and they were doing 5 for £2 or something even sillier on old singles. Most were utter codshit, but they had a whole wodge of GnR in there. All mint condition, all the singles off Appetite for Destruction (some with "look out for our forthcoming record" on them), some had free patches or stickers thrown in. Probably got lost down the back of a drawer in around 1989. Bought them all (about 15 of them, maybe more), sold some of the rarer ones for £20 odd on Ebay.
I have a CD one as well. The Kyuss / QOTSA split EP, pretty much as new (definitely was when I replaced the case...) in a 5 for £20 deal in a second hand shop. Sold that for about £30.
probably because they sold things really cheap, but I got Young Team by Mogwai for about £8. Plus Pavement - Slanted & Enchanted for £4.
