Wish List For Vinyl Pressings

Vinyl is king. Lets make it bigger and better.

With the huge resurgence of vinyl pressings new, reissue, 45RPM Lp's and specialty box sets, not to mention turntable sales, we are certainly living in the great second life of the analogue vinyl Lp album. All this and the abundance of used records is wonderful.

Here's the thing, I was thinking that the industry could use a list by us of albums that would be well received if put to press. Who else but a group of AudioGoners to offer up a wish list. This helps everyone, the artist, the record industry, the record stores and us the music lovers. Everyone wins.

Please keep with a couple of simple guide lines to make this an easy read for those industry guys. This is a list of titles that have never been on vinyl or are out of print, or very, very rare items. This should be record titles, artist names, maybe even catalog numbers if the item had previously been in press. Lets keep the banter to a bare minimum, if you would. The hope is that this will be read by the right folks and we will see (and hear) all this great stuff on our favorite format.

Happy Listing & Happy Listening, as always!

Likewise, you're welcome for an unabashed statement of fact.
I'm easy to please.....I just want the spindle hole to be centered and the record flat

Yep, volume one was released on vinyl back in 1964, so go figure what Impulse! was thinking?!
Not sure if you know but "Car Wheels on Gravel Road" has just been reissued on Music on Vinyl:


There is a lot of reissuing going on at the moment - I hope extends to early Felt LPs. For some dumb reason I failed to get some of their early LPs at the time eg Crumbling the Antiseptic Beauty, The Strange Idols Pattern and Other Short Stories or Ignite the Seven Cannons.
