We buy collections from all around the world, and we recently had collection of incredibly rare, mostly sealed, mint condition records from the ’90s and ’00s arrive from the US. It included sealed original copies of classic record from Peal Jam, Smashing Pumpkins, and R.E.M, as well as some titles that we are seeing for the first time in over 20 years.
Below are just a few highlights, and you can find more of our latest arrivals at 991.com.
Pearl Jam – Ten: Rare US 11-track vinyl LP, with picture sleeve. The iconic, debut album from the Seattle grunge band includes the tracks Jeremy, Once, Alive, Even Flow and more. Despite a slow start for the album upon it’s release, Pearl Jam wouldbe pushed to the forefront of alternative rock and are tremendously successful to this day. Ten itself has now been certified 13x Platinum in the US, and its influence can still be heard today. What makes this particular copy of Ten so remarkable is that is still sealed from new like the day it was bought, therefore remaining in stunning mint and unplayed condition. This is the first time we have ever seen a copy in such condition, and it is unlikely to be repeated. An essential addition to any collection
Smashing Pumpkins – Gish: Rare limited edition 1991 US 10-track vinyl LP, with picture sleeve. Debut album from Chicago’s finest alternative rock band, including the singles I Am One, Siva and Rhinoceros. This copy has managed to remain sealed from new for over 25 years and is in stunning mint, unplayed condition. Essential and unrepeatable
R.E.M. – Monster: Rare limited edition 1994 12-track vinyl LP, with picture sleeve. The ninth studio album from the alternative rock titans, featuring the singles What’s The Frequency, Kenneth? and Crush With Eyeliner. This copy remains sealed from new in its original shrinkwrap, and is in mint and unplayed condition. The first copy we have ever seen in its shop-bought state, and unlikey to be repeated. Essential 90’s alt-rock
