For better or worse, the ‘90s will be remembered for a lot of iconic moments, but mostly it will be for the music. There was the rise of Brit Pop and the battle between Oasis and Blur, Nirvana bringing grunge to the mainstream and influencing an entire generation to wear a plaid shirt, the Spice Girls taking over the world, and Jarvis Cocker’s stage invasion during Michael Jackson’s performance at the Brit Awards.
While music was more popular than virtually any other decade, vinyl was on the decline. CD was the chosen format, rendering cassettes obsolete, and causing vinyl sales to dwindle. Record companies began pressing less and stores rarely stocked anything other than the biggest selling titles. Now, many of the albums of the time are considered collector’s items and sell for premium prices.
We don’t always see that many collections of ‘90s vinyl here, but when we do, you can almost guarantee them to be of a high quality both in condition and content. Below are a few highlights we have in stock, and be sure to keep an eye on our latest arrivals
Jawbreaker – Unfun: 1990 US second issue 12-track vinyl LP, the debut album from the American punk rock band, picture sleeve with orange band name text and green album title text, including the fold-out lyric insert. This example remains in the open shrink, therefore the sleeve displays minimal wear and the vinyl remains excellent with only light signs of play
Bad Religion – Generator: 1992 US 11-track vinyl LP, the sixth studio album by the Amercian punk rock band and their first release with drummer Bobby Schayer, including the single Atomic Garden; picture sleeve with lyric printed insert.
