Turntabling is definitely selling vinyl records and CDs in 2014. We took a break from hitting the road to sell at horror and sci-fi conventions like Flashback Weekend, Cinema Wasteland and others due to scheduling issues (your humble Turntabling.net crew works in film sound when we’re not selling records) but those commitments have been fulfilled and we’ll be back on the road in 2014–and that includes Vinyl Road Rage.
For those not familiar with THAT fun endeavor, Vinyl Road Rage is a cross-country journey to find the best and most interesting records and record stores in the USA. This year we plan on hitting the road again for another extended trip. Could 2014 finally be the year we drive from coast to coast? It could happen.
In the meantime, do have a look at the long list of titles we have for sale at Discogs.com, everything from rare Italian soundtracks to underappreciated goth, industrial, new wave and experimental titles. There’s a lot of unusual stuff in what we call The Turntabling Collection, hundreds of hand-picked records from all over the globe.
Interested in buying rare Ennio Morricone soundtracks? Old weird electronic music? Limited edition soundtrack CDs from giallo and spaghetti western genres? We have it all in The Turntabling Collection for sale at Discogs.com.
When you purchase these records, you’re helping keep Turntabling.net alive and you provide valuable financial support for our Vinyl Road Rage excursions. This site would NOT exist without your support. THANK YOU!!!
This wild, groundbreaking LP by Marshall McLuhan and company has been reissued and is now available in a new, shrink-wrapped edition which is limited to 1000 copies. This excerpt is only part of the journey you definitely should take if you’re into sound manipulation, experimental spoken word LPs and media theory. Truly amazing. The original version is quite rare, and the new edition features a gatefold sleeve, extra artwork and more. Recommended–get it while you can!!!
It’s been a while! The site has been dormant for some time because of a variety of things happening behind the scenes, but Turntabling is coming back in 2013 to sell rare, weird, obscure, fun and innovative music on vinyl and CD once more. The site is going to be getting a bit of a facelift, I’m getting very active on Twitter, Instagram and elsewhere, and basically Turntabling is coming out of the woodwork in the new year to do what we do best–live the vinyl lifestyle and blog about it here.
Keep watching this space, we’re live and active again as of now.
For me personally, you can never have too much real estate to display your vinyl on at a convention, record show or any other event. The more space I have, the happier I am. So if you are tempted to sell some vinyl, why not consider the Vintage Vinyl Show and Sale, August 11-12 in Grayslake?
That special dealer discount is available when you call (715) 526-9769 and request the discount when you reserve your space.
Oh, and be sure to mention Turntabling when you ask for the discount–that’s always a big help.
I said as much this time last year, but it’s well worth repeating. If you have never ventured into a record show and or are used to buying & selling online only, you really should consider giving this a try. There’s nothing like meeting fellow vinyl collectors, talking shop and finding the rare, obscure and hard-to-locate vinyl you’ve been searching for. Record shows like this are among my favorite sources for the unusual LPs I love…
When it comes to selling LPs, I routinely spend $250 or more for a SINGLE TABLE at the horror conventions and other events I sell at…this show offers tables at a much more down-to-earth rate and it runs also features dealers selling phonographs, antique radios, etc. so there should be a very diverse crowd. Fellow record sellers, take note!
Yes, it took a bit of time, but The Turntabling Collection is back online for sale, updated regularly with new arrivals and titles. The vinyl and CDs are for sale as a fundraising effort to support Turntabling.net, so any purchases you make directly contribute to the growth of the site.
We could not exist without your support, and it is always greatly appreciated. We’ve got quite a bit of material planned for summer including more Vinyl Road Rage record store profiles, video, podcasting and much more. It’s always great to find and offer rare and obscure vinyl/CD titles and the never-ending search for these great releases takes us into some pretty strange/fun places.
Some have contacted us asking where the for-sale vinyl went, and now that it’s back I’d just like to say thanks for your patience and please check the site regularly for updates and new info–titles are added on a regular basis and there’s some pretty amazingly rare stuff coming. You can browse all current titles for sale and if you are selling a collection of vinyl, please get in touch–we’d love to know what you have. No show tunes, though, sorry–we don’t buy ’em. Soundtracks, yes, show tunes no.
Whenever it’s time to load up the vehicle with eight or nine hundred vinyl records, rare CDs and other stuff for sale in the Turntabling booth, I always hear the strains of ‘The Tubes World Tour”. And it’s that time again.
Three shows in March make this a quite busy season–things start with Days of the Dead in Atlanta March 9-11, then it’s Horrorhound Weekend in Columbus March 23-25, and finally at the end of the month Turntabling appears at Cinema Wasteland which always happens in Strongsville, Ohio.
The Atlanta show is truly the farthest Turntabling has ever gone to sell vinyl–13 hours of driving for the one-weekend event is pretty ambitious but you never know how these things will go. If it goes well, it could be a repeat visit for us in years to come.
If you’ve never seen the Turntabling booth at a horror convention or film festival, you’re in for a vinyl-collecting treat. Five or six crates packed full of rare, hard-to-find and just plain awesome records, plus a ton of rare CDs…our selection personally curated and is aimed at the discriminating vinyl junkie looking for things you might be hard pressed to discover elsewhere.
Turntabling sells and collects rare soundtrack sounds (Morricone, Bruno Nicolai, Goblin, Gert Wilden, Piero Umiliani, Harry Manfredini, John Carpenter, you name it) vintage 80s industrial/dark music (Cabaret Voltaire, Wire, Skinny Puppy, Sleep Chamber, Hilt, Legendary Pink Dots, Coil, Test Department, etc), post-punk (PiL, Gang of Four, Pop Group, Shriekback,) and sonic oddities which must be seen to be believed (Leonard Nimoy reading Ray Bradbury, Boris Karloff and Bela Lugosi doing horror radio theater, Vincent Price readings, Doctor Who vinyl, etc.)
If you are planning to come to any of the next three events, and want to sell vinyl please get in touch with us at the show or via our comments section–we can’t purchase everything but always give at least some a look and a fair price when there are titles we need. If you wonder what we are in the habit of purchasing, just look at the site and you’ll get a very good idea indeed.
We hope to see you at the shows! In the meantime, here’s a video version of The Tubes World Tour, because it’s our road tripping theme song.
The Turntabling Collection is our ever-growing curated vinyl record collection–some of which goes up for sale to finance the site and help our fellow vinyl junkies fill holes in their collections. Here’s the latest, and don’t forget that every time you buy vinyl from The Turntabling Collection, you’re not just buying rare, hard-to-find, or just plain cool vinyl records and CDs–you’re also helping to keep Turntabling alive and kicking. Thank you for your continued support!
A double LP compilation of reggae sounds including Augustus Pablo, Herman, The Aquarians, and many others. There’s a definite obsession with dub and reggae round the Turntabling office and this record is two slabs of awesome.
Soul Jazz presents Sound Dimension doing two albums worth of rock steady reggae. If you know Soul Jazz, chances are good that you’d be willing to take a chance on this unheard and unseen–as we did. The Sound Dimension are described as the overseas equivalent to Booker T and the MGs or The Funk Brothers–they did the same kind of daily grind studio session work. Hear them in top form here…
Richard Rodney Bennett’s soundtrack for the Michael Caine spy thriller. Some people are completely into this soundtrack, while others are completely unaware of it. It’s a bit overly symphonic in places, but the tracks Anya and Love Scene are Morricone-esque enough to get the attention of Maestro fans, and that’s good enough for us! Nice stuff indeed.
This is NOT the soundtrack for the Quentin Tarantino movie Inglorious Basterds. Instead, what we have here is a sealed, new reissue on Get Back Records of the ORIGINAL movie Inglorious Bastards, directed by Enzo Castellari, with soundtrack music by Francesco De Masi. Italian soundtrack lovers, here’s a treat for you!
Again, when you buy from The Turntabling Collection, you’re supporting the site directly, so thank you for choosing Turntabling. There is much more to choose from, these are just some of the latest additions.
The Turntabling Collection is a group of nearly 1,000 rare records, hard-to-find vinyl LPs, and interesting records curated by Turntabling.net and yours truly. I sell titles from this ever-growing collection to fund Turntabling and to raise money for Vinyl Road Rage excursions across the USA.
The collection was offline for the holidays and a heavy touring season (Turntabling.net sells at horror/sci-fi conventions and film festivals) but there is an ever-growing select group of unique, rare, and hard to find vinyl & CDs available for sale once more.
The latest titles include, but aren’t limited to, some of these awesome records:
A great, memorable vinyl LP from the voice of the Sex Pistols, John Lydon. This is a 180-gram vinyl reissue on 4 Men With Beards and is a truly stunning record. Upon hearing this, some find it hard to believe Never Mind The Bollocks and The Flowers of Romance have the same brain in common.
Gershon Kingsley, half of the awesome experimental Moog duo Perry & Kingsley, shows off his stuff solo on this excellent reissue on Dagored Records. Dagored always does an outstanding job on these reissues and this one is getting harder to find all the time. A must-have for Moog lovers.
Here’s a band that started off as what some describe as “Brit biker metal”, but the band took a few side journeys along the way. This record shows the band starting to experiment with other sounds. There doesn’t seem to be much middle ground with this record, some say it’s a love-it-or-hate-it affair.
Ortolani is legendary as the man behind the creepy and sometimes sentimental sounds of the infamous Italian gut-muncher Cannibal Holocaust. He is definitely one of the all-time great Italian soundtrack masters for genre films like this–essential listening! Another amazing 180-gram vinyl reissue from Dagored Records in Italy.
Turntabling brings the vinyl to the Flint Horror Con in Flint Michigan on Saturday October 29, 2011. If you haven’t seen the Turntabling Collection at Horrorhound Weekend, Cinema Wasteland, Dark Carnival Film Fest or Horror Society events, now’s your chance to get a load of the rare, obscure, lustworthy and hard-to-find vinyl records and CDs that make up the Turntabling Collection.
At this one-day horror festival, Turntabling will have all sorts of vinyl and CD insanity including out-of-print titles by Goblin, John Carpenter, Skinny Puppy, Coil, Legendary Pink Dots, Demon, and many many others. You’ll find plenty of great stuff to pore over at the Turntabling booth and the many other vendors at the show.
This is the very first horror con in Flint according to the ads, and the response to the show has been really amazing–so much so that the film festival itself had to close the submissions down because so many entries had come in.
If you live near the show, come by and say hello–we’d love to see you at the Flint Horror Con! It”s at the Masonic Temple at 755 S, Saginaw Street in Flint, MI. Join us! Doors open at noon.
