Each month we will choose our favorite new vinyl releases in 2020. Whether they are new, classic or re-issues, as long as they meet our strict criteria of being cool or important, we will recommend you immediately go out and buy it for your collection. Of course, you can choose to ignore this and buy what you like, your choice. But seriously, these are good records to have if you love rock music on vinyl.

The important thing is that we are here because we appreciate music. We have built a collection of this outdated (some would say) medium because we love it. Whether we buy online or actually travel to another outdated relic, the record store.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We are in the process of moving as many of our product links to sellers other than Amazon, where possible. In many cases they are the only ones with certain products, but as a business although they provide a good shopping experience and are easy to work with, there are ethical concerns in providing them all the referrals to buy the products we recommend. Essentially, they are becoming a monopoly and it is not in our best interests to promote them any further than we have.

Here is one good alternative for vinyl purchases (or Musicstack). They have most of the vinyl that Amazon has, although the costs may be slightly higher.
