While I'm on the reggae front, how 'bout Scientist vs. Space Invaders?

How come it seems that every artist's best album was only pressed on some independent French/Belgium/Whatever label and has been out of print since 6 mos. after it was first in print?

Just thought of another that I've been searching for:

Rank & File's "Long Gone Dead" and "Sunrise." Rhino has the rights, but won't release them. I ended up buying the vinyl versions and burning them.

Also, Let's Active's "Cypress/Afoot" went out of print on CD long ago. I paid a near fortune to get one of the few available copies floating around in cyberspace.

I'll second Jellybeans for sure--I own two copies of the vinyl, just in case something happens to one of them.

Lessee . . . howsabout James Blood Ulmer's Black Rock? The bulk of Tom Verlaine's solo ouevre? I'm sure I'd have many more suggestions if I was at home and handy to the vinyl. Of course now we're at the point where some stuff that came out on CD originally is getting rarer than blue bologna rings.

'On the Beach' is a great ans, although a cpl of years ago I picked up a bootleg cd copy (obv. taken from a vinyl version) which had a bonus live set on it too - and this was from one of the legit rec shops in Berwick St (they don't have it anymore...) Anyone know why this particular alb, arguably NY's best, has never been reissued?

The last time we had a similar thread on this subject I answered 'World of Echo' by Arthur Russell, which is still MIA and which by now can't possibly ever live up to my expectations for it.... I cld also use a CD reish of the 'Jazz Composer's Orchestra' alb.

I've never understood the idea of buying albums that originally came out in the CD era (the 1990s or later) on vinyl. They won't sound better than on CD, but the vinyl will cost you at twice as much. Is the bigger cover art really worth the hassle?

Can - Ege Bamyasi (and their whole discography, really)

All the albums were reissued in a vinyl box set last year and are in the process of being released individually. I'm seeing plenty of new copies of Ege Bamyasi in every record shop lately.

Eyeball Kicks, Tuesday, 29 July 2014 12:13 (three years ago) Permalink

I don't think it is? I know that some CDs released in the 80s sound worse than vinyls, but that's because CD mastering was in its infancy back then, and vinyls were still the primary market, sotechnicians were still making some mistakes and dodgy choices. But in the 90s CDs became the primary format, so the sound engineering and mastering was geared towards that format, and the dodgy mastering jobs gradually disappeared. So unless an album was deliberately mastered to sound worse on CD than vinyl, any album released after CDs became the dominant format won't sound better on vinyl.

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Tuesday, 29 July 2014 19:27 (three years ago) Permalink

I've found that CD's and LP's cost around the same, maybe a couple of dollars more unless it some sort of weird special version which I personally don't like. Just a week ago I bought Linda Perhacs - Parallelograms and it costed me around $30 dollars because it's some sort of reissue with demos and unreleased tracks which I personally don't care for.

I always hated cd's so I don't have many around my house. I only buy vinyl for albums that I love and mp3s for singles or standalone tracks. This isn't really an opinion regarding quality of vinyl vs cds but I really like how my turntable and my vinyl shelf look in my house, they look much better than any stereosystem I had before.

It's perfectly valid to buy things because you think they look cooler than the other options.

It's totally dependent of label and artist. Pink Floyd vinyl reissues are a joke per example, I think I saw a week ago that they're trying to push a $200 division bell vinyl reissue. It's ridiculous. Here's some examples of my latest purchases and their cd prices comparison:

Joanna Newsom - The Milk-Eyed Mender LP $15.98

yea just to echo what others have said, this is not bullshit. at least in my local record shops, i'm priced out of most new vinyl. totally common to see $18, $20, $25, $40, $45 price tags for single LPs. i don't know who the fuck pays $40 or even $25 for a new record. vinyl can be a fucking ripoff.

New albums round my way are pretty much always twice the price for vinyl: £10 for CD, £20 for vinyl.

Still I buy vinyl exclusively, rationale being:

1. I like vinyl.

2. If I want to sell an album three months later, I will get £5 for a CD and £20 for the vinyl.

3. If I want to sell an album five years later, I will get £1-10 for a CD and £20-40 for the vinyl.

I'm not really counting on this continuing (and I don't anticipate selling my records ever, really), but money on vinyl usually feels well spent.

Eyeball Kicks, Tuesday, 29 July 2014 21:51 (three years ago) Permalink

My rational for buying vinyl is

1. If I can't find it on CD, and

2. it's the only format that can be played without electricity, so I better pick up some shit I'm gonna want to listen to forever.

(the recent news of the 2012 solar storm close call reminded me of the latter)

Montgomery Burns' Jazz (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Tuesday, 29 July 2014 22:12 (three years ago) Permalink

you guys need to give some more specific examples, i still find new lps ~15 but it's indie stuff that's not imported.

brimstead, Tuesday, 29 July 2014 22:34 (three years ago) Permalink

yeah all I see in these pricey examples are boomer and legacy artists, everything new and not super high profile is more like "a couple of bucks more than the CD"

if you can't find a used LP copy of Rocks for less than 5 bucks, you deserve to pay for a $29.98 reissue imo

on the other hand, no way in hell am I paying over $100 for an OOP LP copy of Pharoah Sanders' Izipho Zam, I bought that shit on CD, so I agree w/Tuomas there

THe cds are being promoted at the moment, cut price in the couple of cd places in town and I saw a tv advert last week. Not 100% sure what it ties in with.

Stevolende, Tuesday, 29 July 2014 23:13 (three years ago) Permalink

The recent Wax and Wayne article about pressing plants sort of explained the increase in vinyl price. Fewer plants, aging machines, longer QA process, quirky vinyl formats (diff. colors, etc), all contribute to the difficulty of pressing an album. I still think it's a bit of record company inflation for no reason but there's probably also a justification for some of the price increase.

While he was not a big star, I'm kind of surprised that quite a few of Buddy Miles Mercury LPs never came out in the CD era.

Electric Church ('69)
We Got to Live Together ('70)
A Message to the People ('71)
Buddy Miles Live ('71)

Them Changes with the obvious Hendrix tie seems to have stayed in print and Colombia put out some of his later ones on CD not that many years back. I got it, but Expressway to Your Skull has also come out on CD, but went out pretty quick and now goes for a few bucks.

What I have heard of the above is pretty solid early 70s R&B/rock. I'm guessing it's probably a licensing or masters missing issue perhaps? I dunno, seems like something at least one of the reissue labels would have licensed and done if whatever conglomerate had no interest.

The three full-lengths Karp put out are all out of print and sell for stupid money. I'm not sure what K's situation is now, but it seems like reissuing those would bring in some cash flow.

There are some other 80s-90s punk/indie from other labels doing similar. Laughing Hyena's Cds are going for a few bucks now online when I was looking to find them again.

Saccharine Trust ('80s SST jazzbeatartpunk band) seem to have everything they ever put out in print EXCEPT Surviving You, Always, their first LP (and follow-up to the Paganicons EP, which is probably their best-known thing). It's a completely great album, and I know it's useless to speculate about why Greg Ginn does what he does, but it's very odd that this is the one Sac Trust SST release he doesn't bother with.

For a while my guess was that it had to do with the cover of "Peace Frog" by the Doors not being cleared. But SST still sells a live album with a performance of that song on it. So it's a mystery.
