Late 80’s, Early 90’s Vinyl

Due to a lack of demand as vinyl became known as a “dying medium” in the late 80’s (just as we see happening with CD’s today), any vinyl produced after 88 are some of the most coveted pressings for the hardcore collector.  Here are a few of our favorites from the Cloud 8 vaults.20140106-141833.jpg

Bottom Left:  Time Out of Mind, Bob Dylan. Excellent condition. Released on Sony Music, 1997.

Nothing Sacred

Released in 1978, Nothing Sacred was David Allan Coe’s 11th studio album release and his fourth independent release.  Released solely by mail order due to its explicit lyrics, this is a rare and super obscure country album.  Some of our favorite tracks, “Cum Stains on the Pillow”, “Pussy Whipped Again”, and “Whips and Things”.  Vinyl is mint, cover is fair.  20130901-143200.jpg

The recordings of Luke the Drifter are inspirational in tone and made up of segments of recitations interspersed with song.  Taken from the back of the record, “This is Luke the Drifter, the wandering poet who has been termed Hank Williams’ other self.”20130901-143233.jpg

The album Honky Tonk Heroes made Waylon Jennings the father of outlaw country. Released in 1973 in collaboration with Billy Joe Shaver, this album is loaded with “sing-alongs”.  This is a mint promo edition.  20130901-143239.jpg
