Collecting vinyl is not a cheap hobby, bu there’s nothing better than that feeling of stumbling upon a copy of an album you’ve been hunting for for ages, only to find it’s been stickered at a bargain price.
Online record store The Music Vault has been recreating that feeling of once-in-a-lifetime finds with its Dollar Daze $1 vinyl sale, Music Feeds reports, and has served up some great records every fortnight lately.
Today’s special offer is a limited edition Record Store Day double 7″ of ‘Get Born Again’, featuring some of Layne Stanley’s final recordings alongside a couple of rare tracks recorded for Schwarzenegger’s The Last Action Hero, and last time around they had some Foo Fighters on offer too.
The sale runs every two weeks and the records are only available “while stocks last”, so if you want to grab an absolute bargain, you’ll need to sign up to their mailing list and keep an eye on your emails to make sure you’re one of the first to grab one.
If you do miss out, they still have a bunch of other sales to browse through while you’re there, and right now you can grab a bargain copy of everything from Foo Fighters’ Saint Cecilia EP to the Game of Thrones soundtrack.
It’d be pretty nice picking this record up on vinyl dirt cheap
Vinyl records just keep getting trendier
In other vinyl hunting news, you can check out King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard talking through some of their favourite crate-digging finds at the iconic record store Amoeba Music. They know all about rare vinyl, considering a test pressing for their just-released album Sketches of East Brunswick just went for a ridiculous sum, and their 1000 copies of the new album have sold out in a flash.
Vinyl is still all the rage right now, with Tool announcing complete remasters and rereleases of all of their albums while they make us wait for a new one, and even Britney Spears getting in on the action, with her debut album …Baby One More Time being released on vinyl for the very first time – in pink of course.
So, good luck with grabbing some $1 vinyl – and for a bit of context, here are the five most valuable vinyl records ever sold, to make you feel better about even your most expensive purchases.
