Vinyl is, for some, a replacement strategy for some that adds value by heavier vinyl weight, often new remastering, and many times new notes, restored artwork, and other little details that light up the vinyl fan. For others, it’s an audio enjoyment recovered after decades of CDs. And for a smaller group, it’s another thing for the completist. And of course, there are the young vinyl collector that’s starting out.
On June 26, Universal is releasing ten Rolling Stones titles on vinyl LP, all with 2009 remastering, new artwork, and Half-speed mastering. Nothing new there. However, on June 26, three other Rolling Stones titles will join that include Sticky Fingers, Some Girls, and Exile On Main Street (2LP). If you’re interested.
Another vinyl revisit involves a previously released Grateful Dead collection – Skeletons From The Closet. This new vinyl issue is expected on August 7.
And on May 15, Rhino delivers a 150g-weight color-vinyl LP edition of Cosmic Thing by The B-52s. The vinyl is rainbow colored and is limited to 4500 copies.
