Thirty+ years ago the hot ticket for music was this big, bulky thing called a “vinyl album.” It was round, flat, and came in a big paper sleeve. It played on something called a “turn-table.” Now, i’m sure the deathcore kids reading this don’t even know that thirty years ago existed. Well, we all know that time began the day Emmure was formed, but that is besides the point. Recently the Metal Delirium writers have been getting into vinyl and it’s something we all love a lot. This section is going to be for whenever one of us goes vinyl hunting we can share something we saw or purchased and we would like our readers to know about. Not EVERYTHING is EVERYWHERE and not everybody can find it, so we are here to share. Not to mention we are always scouring the internet looking for cheap vinyl sales we want to share!
Last Friday me and Whitney went up to Greenville, South Carolina and had a look in Earshot Records and Cabin Floor Records. Both of them worth looking in if you are ever in the area. Earshot had a lot of newer and limited edition stuff that was decently priced. While Cabin Floor had a lot of older stuff, but goodies. Not to much metal but a lot of old school punk/hardcore kind of stuff.
From Earshot I got:
Ace Frehley – Greatest Hits Live 2LP Limited Edition. Numbered 244-500
Testament – The Formation of Damnation 2LP Nuclear Green Vinyl
White Wizzard – Over The Top Limited Edition Picture Disc
All fairly decently priced for what they were. You can tell they were all newer stuff. They also had a lot of underground black and death metal releases.
The real prize was in the used section of Cabin Floor. I found an original press of the debut Iron Maiden album(titles and everything in spanish) and the debut Black Sabbath album. I could have run naked through the streets in excitement.
Also if you check out Fat Wreck Chords website you can get a grab bag of 20 vinyl for 60$! Probably get a lot of old school punk and hardcore but hell, nothing wrong with that!
