They've been running stories like this for a couple of years now. I don't doubt the numbers but at a time when I'm trying to get *rid* of things in bulk seeing the rush for this is a bit head-shaking.

ORG Records?

CharlieNo4, Monday, 18 August 2008 15:28 (7 years ago) Permalink

Olson's doorbell is chiming more frequently these days. Since starting vinyl-only label ORG in December 2006 in Olson's kitchen, the label is bursting at the seams. "By the end of the year, we will have gone from making zero money to projecting that we will gross over $1 million," said Olson, who nevertheless has kept his day job as senior vice president of A&R at Universal Music Publishing Group.

The label, which primarily licenses material from Universal Music Group, ....

yeah, funny that!

(A traditional LP is pressed on 120-gram weight vinyl, whereas many labels produce special packages using 180-gram vinyl, which gives a fuller, richer sound.)

I was talking to some guys the other day and posed the question: which would you rather have, heavier vinyl or deeper grooves? Everyone seemed to agree that weight of vinyl by itself doesn't guarantee better sound, quite a bit can be dependent on mastering etc. Let's blah blah blah blahlhhh

This summer, ORG will release a four-vinyl-LP, 10th-anniversary edition of Beck's "Odelay." The original CD booklet will be re-created for the 180-gram special package, which will carry a suggested retail list price of $60.

Any takers?

it depends how much music is on there. the shorter the tracks, the deeper the grooves, the higher the fidelity. heavier vinyl allows for deeper grooves, but everything depends on how much actual music you're trying to cram on a given side of vinyl.

The resurgence is having a snowball effect. At Record Technology Inc., a once-beleaguered pressing plant in Camarillo, owner Don MacInnis said that "business is the best it's been in 20 years."

When vinyl started its rebirth, RTI operated on banker's hours -- five days a week, eight hours a day. Now, "we're running 16 hours a day, six days a week," MacInnis said. And he's turning away clients. RTI's average pressing per title over the last few years has doubled to 3,000 units, with orders frequently topping 10,000 copies.

this is good news no matter how many crappy major label records get the vinyl reissue treatment.

Yeah, the author here seems a bit clueless re: the real economics behind record stores ... but so do the Major Labels:

Next month, Capitol/EMI will launch "From the Capitol Vaults," with the release of 13 titles on vinyl, including Radiohead's "OK Computer" and Steve Miller Band's "Greatest Hits 1974-1978."

Romeo Jones, Tuesday, 19 August 2008 01:28 (7 years ago) Permalink

Yeah, I wonder how long it will take major labels to realize that the way to exploit the vinyl market is NOT with high priced "collectors items" but with desirable catalog titles that command high prices in the aftermarket.

i don't buy too many records and haven't bought a new record in a long while. it's mainly old jazz/blues comps that I end up purchasing. But if every new record came with a download coupon and I invested in a decent turntable (mine is kinda crappy) I can see buying the record instead of the CD.

tylerw, Tuesday, 28 April 2009 18:27 (7 years ago) Permalink

eventually, i want to sell some new vinyl at my soon-to-open store. i'm scared of the money involved though. i'll start small. i was thinking of being genre specific. JUST selling psych reissues or something...

i'll have to see what people are into around here. lotsa freekfolkers in western mass though. and not a lot of competition for new vinyl. so the psych thing might work.

scott seward, Tuesday, 28 April 2009 18:29 (7 years ago) Permalink

every record does have a download coupon, it's called "(artist name) + (album name) + mediafire or megaupload or sharebee etc"

~*GAME 2 SNYPA*~ (omar little), Tuesday, 28 April 2009 18:30 (7 years ago) Permalink

Especially since record companies are sending less physical copies of records in the mail every year. I've been going to the record store and picking up CDs I really like (I didn't get physical promos for Springsteen, Bat For Lashes or Doom)...

--But should I be getting vinyl copies of these albums instead?
--Is the ease of 320k or 192k rips ANY TIME I NEED THEM for all eternity better or worse than having something that looks better and (hypothetically) sounds better?
--Should I take into consideration how easy it it to scratch/warp/fuck up a piece of vinyl, ruining it forever, as opposed to a CD that pretty much will play as long as you don't put them in your backpack without a case like a see kids do on the subway?
--What about my CD shelves when I have four spines of a group, but then have to go to my record collection for the fifth record?

CDs are the new vinyl. Scored 10 amazing CDs for $5.
This sealed Chris Gaines CD will pay for the whole lot in five years I reckon, so it's like I got them for free.
Haven't seen vinyl go for such firesale prices since a few years back getting the Rush back catalog for 10cents an album.

Well, a penny plus postage, right? Which always seems to nullify the deal for me, but maybe I'll come around. Do need to start hunting around for used CDs in stores more, though.

xp from the fax records thread -

Good news! Apparently the rights of the FAX albums have begun to revert back to the artists, or at least some of them have managed to make a deal with Namlook's estate. So the entire Dark Side of the Moog series will be released as three box sets, with one bonus disc included in each box:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dark-Side-Moog-Vol-1-4/dp/B018EHR7GK

(The bonus disc in the first box is just a reissue of the "Evolution of the Dark Side of the Moog" comp, a seamless mix of tracks from the first ten albums, but the next two boxes will apparently have some exclusive material as a bonus.)

The two solo discs by Lorenzo Montanà have also been reissued as one set:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Black-Ivy-Serpe-Lorenzo-Montana/dp/B016BSR9PS

Montanà was one of the new discoveries on FAX during its last few years, and these albums are well recommended. They have shorter, more beat-oriented tracks than your typical FAX albums, with a nice old-school "home listening techno" sound, a la early Warp Records.

I don't know anything about Fax or the Dark Side of the Moog series, but I own a fair amount of Schulze stuff - Cyborg, Audentity, and La Vie Electronique vols. 1-8 and vol. 16. So...do I need these boxes? What do they sound like? I love Schulze's 70s stuff, obviously, but his 80s stuff doesn't do much for me at all. Please advise.

It said YouTube and similar operators contributed a “meagre” £24.4m to music industry coffers, despite an 88% increase in music video streams to nearly 27bn last year. That was narrowly eclipsed by the £25.1m earned by labels from the sale of 2.1m vinyl LPs in 2015.

The BPI called on the government to fix the so-called “value grab” by websites such as YouTube who, it said, paid lower royalties than subscription audio streaming services such as Spotify and Deezer, which contributed a combined £146.1m.

I don't remember much Front 242 vinyl being around in Cleveland in the late '80s/early '90s. I think Back Catalogue was the first import CD I ever bought, or maybe it was the first Throwing Muses album. Seemed very exotic buying a disc without a longbox.
