New Vinyl Records: Morricone Soundtracks Galore

Morricone HumanoidTurntabling has some new stock in, lots of Ennio Morricone goodness being added to the inventory this holiday weekend. But we are also excited to announce that we’re going to be adding more used vinyl to the inventory-a lot of rare and excellent titles from Sisters of Mercy, The Cure, Johnny Thunders, Robyn Hitchcock, Roxy Music, Romeo Void, a LOT of pre-owned vinyl coming your way soon.

When it comes to used vinyl, Turntabling takes a conservative approach. There is visual grading and that usually includes a spin on our turntable to make sure there are no undetected warps or other general issues. Our equipment isn’t YOUR equipment, so performance may vary depending on the type of needle you’re using, whether your tone arm is properly calibrated, age and nature of your turntable, etc. But we try to be as transparent as possible with our descriptions.

If there’s a noticeable issue with a vinyl record, it should be described in the listing, but Turntabling also believes in satisfaction, so if you encounter problems with an unsealed, used vinyl record you’ve purchased, do get in touch.

We’ll be updating the site when the new titles are live! You can shop our current inventory in the meantime, with hundreds of new, sealed vinyl waiting for you.

Vinyl Wanted: Sun Ra Nothing Is Picture Disc

From time to time, Turntabling goes on a bughunt for some strange or sought-after vinyl…today I’m on the hunt for a VG++ or better copy of the Sun Ra picture disc edition of Nothing Is.

If you have one for sale, please drop me a line via orders@turntabling.net and include price, condition, and location plus shipping information.

Any contact about this disc is greatly appreciated!

WTF Album Covers: Explaining Sex To Your Little Girl

WTF album covers explaining sexFor a start, any vinyl record that presumes to teach you something about sex already has a lot working against it…but throw a creepy/pervo Norman Rockwell vibe into the mix with the cover art and you have WTF gold. And look at that cup of coffee she’s got there…whatever she’s learning from that record, she’ll be up all night thinking about it.

I discovered this one at the similarly WTF-n-vintage-obsessed Vintage Everyday blog. Good stuff there…and a lot of it!

New Vinyl Arrivals at Turntabling: Morricone, Joy Division, Goblin

There is a TON of great new vinyl for sale on the Turntabling Discogs page. Italian soundtrack fans will love the addition of My Delicious Spaghetti Western on the legendary Dagored label, and it’s been a great long while since I had a copy of Ennio Morricone’s La Donna Invisible to offer–it’s one of my favorite soundtracks from the era. I am always on the lookout for more excellent titles from Italy from the giallo, horror, sci-fi and thriller genres. You can never have too many Goblin albums, and Morricone’s work from the 60s and 70s never gets dull.

Turntabling sells vinyl from a variety of genres including soundtracks, goth/industrial, 80s new wave and punk, and just plain rare/obscure titles. I scour the earth to find these, and several times a year embark on cross-country trips to buy entire collections, find weird and outrageous vinyl, and meet my fellow vinyl junkies.

If you have a collection to sell, I’d be very happy to discuss it–but please know that I buy in the genres that I sell here. Country, show tunes, classic rock, and other genres unrelated to what I sell on Turntabling are of little interest. The ONLY exception to that rule is when weird or unsual albums are involved.

Here is a VERY SMALL selection of what I currently have for sale on Discogs. You can always send me an e-mail for a list of my latest arrivals–it’s an auto-responder that has my very latest items listed. Just send an email to: turntabling23@gmail.com. This list is updated whenever I get new arrivals–want the latest? Just send another email to that address and you’ll have the latest updated version.

Thanks very much for checking out Turntabling! Your interest is what keeps the site going year after year.

Russ Meyer Soundtrack Vinyl

Sure, Russ Meyer films aren’t for EVERYONE…it takes a certain kind of movie lover to truly appreciate Meyer’s outrageous style. But for those of us who DO love this type of insanity, the soundtrack albums are practically indispensable–not only as artifacts and nostalgia for the drive-in era, but the packaging and presentation itself is pretty damn appealing.

The series of LPs this title belongs to feature gatefold sleeves, a booklet and a LOT of images from these films. Not-Safe-For-Work type images.

The LPs are sadly getting harder to find, but when you DO find them, grab ’em. If you aren’t sure whether this record is for you, have a look at the trailer below for Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! If you aren’t immediately grabbed by this, chances are good the record might…not…be…for you.

But if Tura Satana makes it for you, you need this album. That’s all I’m saying.

It’s true that not everything in the Russ Meyer catalog is as jaw-droppingly cool as Faster Pussycat!, Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, or his backwoods Nazi epic, UP! But the ones that work are 100% entertainment.

Meyer was a man who truly understood his audience–which back then included a large number of drive-in moviegoers. And once you get the idea that these movies were made with the idea that they might be viewed from the back seat of an old Rambler or something, it’s a lot easier to understand them in context…but let’s not get all psychobabble-a-rific here.

I sell Russ Meyer soundtracks whenever I can get my hands on them, and if you have any to sell, do get in touch. You can buy Russ Meyer’s Lorna, Vixen, Faster PussyCat! Kill! Kill! Original Motion Picture Soundtracks from Turntabling via the Discogs store. This LP is available first-come, first-served. Get it while you can!

And in the meantime, have a look at the awesome trailer for Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill! It’s a stunner.

Vinyl For Sale!

Here is the latest vinyl for sale from The Turntabling Collection, which is NOT limited to what you see here. If you have vinyl wish lists or specific titles you’re looking for, do get in touch: jwallace@turntabling.net. There is much, much more to be listed including a nice selection of Italian soundtracks (Riz Ortolani, Morricone, Goblin, much more) and some interesting post-punk, new wave, and industrial titles from Skinny Puppy, Sisters of Mercy, a Nettwerk Records sampler LP or two, Hilt, and The Legendary Pink Dots. Til then, here’s what is currently up for sale. Again, do get in touch if you have specific requests.




 

First New Sale Items Posted

It’s official, Turntabling is back in the record selling biz! I got things started tonight with a nice selection of import and hard-to-find soundtrack CDs, but the vinyl is DEFINITELY on its way.

Turntabling is selling on Discogs.com and soon our Etsy shop will be back up and running, too.

For those of you visiting for the first time, Turntabling is my small, scrappy indie vinyl preservation effort. I’m based in Chicago and I archive rare and weird vinyl, buy/sell/trade LPs and CDs and basically live the vinyl lifestyle. In the spring and summer I do Vinyl Road Rage, which is a cross-country vinyl buying and blogging spree. Last time out it was Chicago to San Antonio, Texas and prior to that I’ve gone from Chicago to NYC and out to many other far flung places.

If you have vinyl to sell or titles you’re looking to buy, do get in touch. You can reach me at jwallace@turntabling.net

Thanks for reading and I look forward to listing tons of rare, unusual, hard-to-find, and just plain amazing vinyl records. Stay tuned…I have thousands of titles, it just takes a bit of time to load em all in!

The Turntabling Collection: Rare, Hard-To-Find and Awesomeness on CD and LP

Many Turntabling readers know us from conventions including HorrorHound Weekend, Flashback Weekend, Cinema Wasteland, Capricon and Dark Carnival Film Festival.

Turntabling sells rare, hard to find and just plain amazing vinyl and CDs at conventions every year and last year the Turntabling booth got so large I was carting around more than 700 titles. Not bad for a small space at a convention, eh?

When the collection isn’t making the rounds in convention-land, there are many titles for sale online as well. The Turntabling Collection has been offline since the last HorrorHound Weekend and Vinyl Road Rage, but the collection is coming back on line for sale once more.

As with everything else on the web, listing a collection of this size takes time and the inventory is coming up to speed with updates on a daily basis.

If you’re looking for obscurities, Italian soundtrack sounds from Goblin and Morricone, electronic music and analog synth sounds, Isaac Hayes, John Carpenter, Sleep Chamber, Skinny Puppy, Coil, or similar sounds, keep checking The Turntabling Collection as I am updating the for sale list day to day.
