Bizarre albums, prank phone call records, celebrity vanity records, so much more. Freakish children’s albums and religious nonsense.

The Turntabling Collection is Growing

The Turntabling Collection is the ever-growing list of rare, hard-to-find, bizarre and just plain amazing vinyl and CD titles available for sale. You can browse the collection online and have a look conventions like HorrorHound, Flashback, Cinema Wasteland and many others.

There are more than 280 titles currently listed online and many more updates coming. There is too much stuff to add all at once–these titles are just the most exciting ones and there are many more for sale at the conventions I run the Turntabling booth at…

Over the weekend there were a lot of great titles on vinyl and compact disc added including some of these beauties:

The Abominable Dr. Phibes soundtrack, a great collection of the music from Andy Warhol’s Dracula and Andy Warhol’s Frankenstein, a copy of the Island of the Fishmen soundtrack, also known as L’Isola Degli Uomini Pesce.

There is all sorts of great, bizarre and rare vinyl going into the collection–have you heard the collection of Brazillian psychedelia freakouts called Far Out Spaced Oddyssey? That’s no misprint, this record is so far out they didn’t even bother spelling it correctly.

Then there’s that copy of the Deep Throat soundtrack issued by Light In The Attic Records, which includes a poster, and ditto for the J.G Thirlwell project Wiseblood–the Turntabling Collection now includes a copy of Motorslug by Wiseblood which has the original comic book insert Nyak-Nyak included.

There are plenty more titles coming—the collection recently acquired titles by Can, BBC Records, KLF, Skinny Puppy and many others. These titles often don’t stay in stock very long–some of the rare ones get snapped up pretty quickly, especially at shows. If you click on a link and find that title is already sold, by all means drop a line to me at jwallace (at) turntabling (dot) net and I can see about getting my hands on another one.

The Turntabling Collection goes toward funding more activity on the site, including Vinyl Road Rage–my cross country road trips in search of the best indie record shops on the planet. If you’ve purchased records or CDs from Turntabling, you’ve helped fund one of these drives and related excursions. THANK YOU!
