Vinyl Albums For Sale. Musicstack Has Rare Vinyl Records.

I’ve been around the ‘net for a while. I’ve seen a lot of sites out there that have CD’s and a few records, but when you are looking for something rare and not so popular, they don’t have it. Musicstack is different. I have been on this site a few times and have found everything […]

How and Where to Buy Vinyl Records and LP’s

Last time I was in a record store that actually had records, was about four or five years ago. Quonset Hut (no longer selling music) was one of those music stores that had t-shirts, toys like KISS dolls, even smoking paraphernalia (although not of it was for drug use of course). It was one of […]

The Blues Brothers – Briefcase Full of Blues

I love the Blues Brothers. I think that it is one of the greatest movies, especially musical movies ever. Most everyone knows that John Belushi and Dan Akroyd started the Blues Brothers on Saturday Night Live. You can find this and more Blues Brothers at Musicstack. Ye, if you look closely, you’ll see that the […]

Album and Album Cover Display Frames

A few weeks ago I posted about a great way to display your vinyl record collection. A little while ago I was sent another similar display from my brother. This vinyl record display doesn’t have the tilt out feature to get access to the LP, but is much cheaper. It is only about $24 compared […]

U2 – The Joshua Tree 20th Anniversary Remastered, Reissued Vinyl Record

I have this album. Well, the original at least. It has been played a lot. A whole lot. So you can imagine that the sound quality has been degraded over the years. I’d love to have this new one by U2. I thought that I should talk about The Joshua Tree since it will be […]

Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band – Live 1975 – 85

Wow! What a collection. There are 5 records in this album. 40 songs. This is Bruce Springsteen at his best, live. All of the classics (Thunder Road, 4th of July Asbury Park, Fire, Born to Run, Born in the USA) are here, plus a whole lot more great stuff. This is the second best selling […]

13th Floor Elevators – S.F. Live ’66

This is one of my more eccentric albums. 13th Floor Elevators were one of the first real psychedelic bands in the 60’s. They are also considered one of the most influential bands in garage rock, and punk rock. They only played together from 1965 to 1969, but they made it big, had 4 albums, and […]

Display and Play Your Record Collection.

I’ve always wanted to use some of my albums as decorative pictures, but yet I still want to play the record. How can you do that without hanging the record with the cover, or taking the record out and storing it in something else, but that defeats the purpose of cover art, to see it […]

Vinyl Records to Replace CD’s

Talk about irony. I remember (growing up in the 70’s and into the 80’s) music on TV selling on LP and cassette, even 8-track. But I also remember how that stopped once CD’s came out. No more 8-tracks (thankfully) and no more LP’s. Now, vinyl records could be what replaces CD’s. Vinyl has been making […]

New and Classic Albums Released on Vinyl

There are many artists who are still releasing albums on vinyl. Radiohead (who are at the forefront of music releases), the heavy metal band Darkthrone, U2’s the Joshua Tree re-release, Iron Maiden, and many more. I know, it’s not as easy to store or carry with you, but it still sounds, looks and feels so […]
