Re: The Vinyl Thread

Grabbed a couple of records tonight after work. One of them is used from the early 70's.

Something I noticed that I haven't for any other album of mine. It's a 2-LP, 4-total sides live album. The liner notes lists it as Side One, Side Two, Side Three, Side Four. The thing is Sides 1 and 4 are on one record, while 2-3 are on the other. New to me. Is this common? Anyone else have anything like this?

I've seen it before. Perhaps it was done this way for those old record players that stacked and dropped records for continuous play.

You're right - that's exactly what they made them like this for. I have one record like this - the original Star Wars soundtrack.

Oh, actually LCD Soundsystem did the Last Goodbye like this across 5 LPs. I always assumed that was so anyone with a two turntable setup could mix the whole thing into a continuous run though.

Re: The Vinyl Thread

Its common with older records. Pretty sure that practice stopped in the 80s. Every once in a while you come across that is that way(LCD did their live album that way). I believe it was for the automatic record feeders. This way you can stack up the records for a long continuous play before flipping records.

Re: The Vinyl Thread

So I just saw the top 10 selling vinyl albums for the first half of the year (but I think it's UK only - it's on the vinyl factory site).

Anyway, Tennis - Yours Conditionally sold 24,000 copies and is the 9th biggest selling vinyl album of the year (again, probably in the U.K.)

So wtf is happening there?


I'm also amazed at how many records a band can sell now (24k would have been the biggest selling vinyl of the year in 2007).

Re: The Vinyl Thread

Ok, it's billboard. Makes the results even weirder.

2017’s Mid-Year Top 10 Selling Vinyl Albums
1. The Beatles, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (39,000)
2. Soundtrack, La La Land (33,000)
3. Soundtrack, Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 (30,000)
4. Bob Marley and the Wailers, Legend (30,000)
5. Amy Winehouse, Back to Black (27,000)
6. Ed Sheeran (Divide) (27,000)
7. The Beatles, Abbey Road (26,000)
8. Prince and the Revolution, Purple Rain (24,000)
9. Tennis, Yours Conditionally (24,000)
10. Pink Floyd, The Dark Side of the Moon (23,000)

Re: The Vinyl Thread

The only reason why it's weird is because it's up there with albums that reasonably big sellers (GOTG, lala were big soundtracks/films, 5 others are stone cold solid classic albums, and another is the biggest selling album of the year so far). It's a real weird outlier.

I can think of 3-4 artists who released new albums to varying degrees of acclaim this year who are significantly bigger than Tennis, who have a sizable demand for vinyl in their fan base, who aren't here (maybe they are in the next 10). I'm just wondering how Tennis shifted more wax then any of them. I'm genuinely puzzled by this this morning.

It was a VMP record of the month. How many of those packages do you think get sent out?

10,000? Maybe 15,000 at most.

And if VMP is the main driver, how come Demon Days isn't on there? It's the only record to ever sell out on VMP.

Re: The Vinyl Thread

Also it's crazy that pretty consistently for the past 10 years, the Beatles sell at least 10,000 copies of Abbey Road. It's been on the list every year since I started paying attention to vinyl sales about a decade ago.

Re: The Vinyl Thread

Any recs on powered speakers? I have a compact set up with a LP120 currently.

To this point the Kanto YU4 or Edifier BT1700 seem intriguing. I don't want to spend a ton and the Bluetooth functionality is intriguing as it would be versatile in my apartment.
