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.

Turntabling: We Buy AND Sell Vinyl

Turntabling recordsWhat you see here is the setup for the Turntabling-curated Sexy and Scary Vinyl art show on the 5th floor of the Bridgeport Art Center (Friday June 20 2014 starting at 6PM). There are a LOT of vinyl records on display for this one-night-only art show, plus film trailers, music and more.

One question that has come up about the show and about Turntabling in general is whether we sell records (yes we do!) and where you can buy those records.

Turntabling.net has a record and CD shop on Discogs.com and our inventory grows weekly–sometimes daily, depending on the finds we make in a never-ending search for the hard to find, the rare, the weird, the unusual, and just plain awesome vinyl records.

While we aren’t selling records at the art show on Friday (the show is all about the images, the album covers and the culture behind these albums and the films associated with many of them) we are happy to discuss the sale of these records and many others like them. Please feel free to drop a line with wish lists and requests for more information to:

orders@turntabling.net

We are actively looking for other venues to bring the Sexy and Scary Vinyl art show to–if you want this display in your record store, special event, art space or other venue, do get in touch at the same address.

Turntabling is also branching out to Etsy once more–we have a small, but soon-to-be-growing inventory there that you can explore at https://www.etsy.com/shop/Turntabling.

And finally, Turntabling buys record collections–if you have one to sell, get in touch by email:

New Orleans Record Raid June 21st 2014 in Bywater

New Orleans Record Raid

Saturday June 21st from 9-5, the New Orleans Record Raid, for one day only. Billed as the largest record show in all of Louisiana, this sounds like a lot of fun, but be warned–the nearest ATM is a block and a half away, so come stocked with cash or you might just miss that awesome vinyl find…

This record show is put on by a non-profit, “to benefit recorded music culture in New Orleans, Louisiana and the Gulf South Region” according to the official site, which also adds, “For the most part, our shows are open-ended: we welcome all formats of recorded media from all vintages and musical styles, and try to keep the shows accessible for collectors and sellers. We have had over 50 vendors from all over the region, and it’s currently the only event of its kind in Louisiana.”

 

Now For Sale From Turntabling

Vinyl the living dead at manchester morgue soundtrack album

There is a LOT of vinyl goodness on sale at the Turntabling Discogs shop.

We’ve made some great finds recently and there are plenty of rare and hard to find LPs there including the Death Waltz edition of the Living Dead At The Manchester Morgue soundtrack, which is fantastic all on its own, but comes beautifully packaged from Death Waltz complete with a poster and that excellent cover art.

Five dolls for an August Moon sountrack AMS Cinevox

We were also lucky enough to get our hands on a vinyl copy of the Five Dolls For An August Moon sountrack–Piero Umilliani scoring for Mario Bava? That is a combination that just cannot go wrong. This one is a must-have for any fan of Bava, or the soundtrack sounds from that era of Italian cinema. Fabulous.

And then thEraserhead Sacred Bones Double LP reissueere’s the Eraserhead soundtrack, a double LP reissue that is increasingly hard to find. Where to start? David Lynch creates an experience like no other both in the film AND on the soundtrack record, which really does stand all on its own with or without the film. How on earth could a soundtrack fan or a Lynch afficianado be without this? The version we’re selling is the amazing reissue on Sacred Bones which has a TON of extras. Buy this before I change my mind about selling it!Day of the Dead Soundtrack Romero

The George Romero film Day Of The Dead now has a couple of editions out when it comes to soundtrack albums, and we’ve got both in the shop–this one and the Waxworks edition (while supplies last). This is a sealed edition of the original issue John Harrison soundtrack and features that 80s artwork we all know and love. The dead walk!

These soundtrack albums are available via the Turntabling Discogs shop and are for sale while supplies last only. First come, first served!

New Vinyl For Sale: Creepshow, Ms. 45, more…

All top-notch releases, and when you purchase one of these LPs you are helping support the arts. All profits from the sale of records in the Turntabling Discogs shop go to support my art space and indie publishing HQ, StudioLab.

Are You Going to Cinema Wasteland?

The mighty horror convention Cinema Wasteland is rapidly approaching, and Turntabling marks its second show as a vendor there. I have to say, CW organizers Ken and Pam are completely awesome, always put on a hell of a show, and even manage to find time to chat a bit while going in six directions at once.

I can’t say enough great things about this show–the guest list is always stellar, the movies play non-stop on film and DVD projection, and the hardest of the hardcore horror fan set is out in force twice a year in Strongsville Ohio. This show is minutes from downtown Cleveland.
Right off the Ohio Turnpike (I-80/90) & I-71.

Turntabling is bringing more amazing vinyl than ever–this will be the most vinyl I’ve ever taken to a show to sell, hands down. The Chicago-based Flashback show was a great one, but I have even MORE vinyl on hand for Wasteland. If you want to see a very small sampling of the goodies I’ll bring with me, have a look at my for-sale list of vinyl and CDs at Discogs.com.

I only have about 200 albums and discs listed for sale there at present, I’m working on that…I bring MUCH MORE to the shows these days. How much more? How about ten milk crates or so full?

That’s right–the Turntabling stock has increased exponentially since my last appearance at Cinema Wasteland and I am ALWAYS looking for more. If you need to unload a large pile of albums, by all means get in touch with me at jwallace@turntabling (dotnet).

Please consider coming out for Cinema Wasteland–my vinyl titles aside, the show is a hell of a lot of fun and there is so much great stuff going on that weekend I can’t even begin to describe them all.

Have a look at the CW site to learn the full line-up, which includes William Forsythe, Davide Emge from the original Dawn of the Dead, Frank “Basket Case” Henenlotter, Lloyd Kaufman of Troma fame, Kyra “I ate mommy in Night of the Living Dead” Schon, and too many other awesome names to list here.

Turntabling $5 Bargain Bin Vinyl Record Sale

UPDATE: This sale is now closed.
This is our newest feature at Turntbling; every good record seller should have a discount bin of vinyl records to offset the crazy, ultra-rare vinyl finds that collectors lust after. This is the Turntabling version, which I will be posting regularly with updates and additions.

Most of the vinyl in the $5 bin is first-come, first served only as there are only one each per title. If it’s available, you’ll be able to purchase and pay for it. If not, the system won’t let you check out–it will show the item as sold out instead, so there’s no worry about paying for something that isn’t actually available.

The bargain bin is one of the best things about buying vinyl–it lets you take chances on sounds  you’d never pay full price for otherwise and make all sorts of amazing new discoveries.

We kick things off this time with a nice little selection of obscure and not-so-obscure titles…good luck and happy hunting.

All titles are at least in Good condition or better, but it should be known that in many cases these records are passing from one music lover to another–they have been played, not collected and the intent of the discount bin is to encourage new musical obsessions rather than feed the “mint condition, never played” collector’s addiction.

Culture Shock by Chain Reaction. An album that screams 80s until you go completely stone, cold deaf. If you spot someone in a beret and trenchcoat on an album cover, it MUST be from the 80s. It’s some kind of law. Five dollars is a bargain–just LOOK at that beret!







A Secret Wish by Propaganda. Nice abstract cover, letting you know this bunch went to art college, or at least wanted to. Instead they wound up on vinyl. A fiver gets you the goods.






Hazel O’Connor is probably best known for her new wave antics in the fun Breaking Glass movie produced by Dodi Fayed (yes, THAT Dodi Fayed) back in the new wavey 80s. Her D.H. Lawrence references might confuse someone looking for robots and UFOs after Breaking Glass, but don’t let that stop you from totally digging on this other side of Hazel O’Connor on her Sons and Lovers LP. Is five dollars really too much to pay? She’s wearing a TIE!






What was it about new wave bands? Some of them seemed to choose names that seemed to doom them from the start. Whatever you think about the actual MUSIC of Invisible Zoo on this self-titled new wave/power pop EP, the name of the band in hindsight…well, wait a second. What about A Flock of Seagulls? Or Pink Military? Never mind, it’s five bucks for all the power pop love you can take.






George Carlin, we miss you! This album, A Place For My Stuff, has some of his CLASSIC routines. Love this one. Five bucks makes George smile from the other side. Wherever that is.






OK, we admit a certain soft spot for Culture Club era pop tunes. For anyone who read Take It Like A Man, the Boy George bio, Haysi Fantayzee is a familiar name. This is the 12-inch single for Shiny Shiny, the apex (or nadir, depending on your point of view) of that whole scene. If you spend five bucks on this one, you’ll be enshrined the Hall of George forever. And that’s a good thing.






There are more bargain bin vinyl sales coming soon. This is just the beginning! I have TONS of this stuff, but can only post it up so fast. Stay tuned for more, vinyl lovers. Five bucks apiece!

Platterpus Records, Addison Illinois

by Joe Wallace

So it begins–the Vinyl Road Rage updates move into record store review territory now because if I don’t start writing ’em, they will NEVER get done. There’s already a massive backlog of great indie record stores to cover and you have to start sometime so we begin with the great Platterpus Records in Addison, Illinois.

Platterpus sells online and does not have a storefront per se, but they do have a bi-monthly warehouse sale where they invite the public to come and browse literally thousands of records. You can also come out and look by appointment, which is how I enjoyed my first visit.

Platterpus is challenging for non-crate digging obsessive record shoppers going by appointment because the stock is literally boxed and waiting the warehouse sale–but the persistent digger is soon rewarded with plenty of delicious finds.

I strongly recommend searching the site’s online stock–which is not available for crate digging–before going to the warehouse. I was rewarded with a couple of wonderful finds using this approach–a Coil 12-inch I’d been long seeking and some other beauties.

Crate digging at Platterpus is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. I have yet to experience the warehouse sale but the Platterpus folks tell me it’s organized and fun. They’re friendly, very helpful and I will definitely be going back out to Addison at some point soon for more digging.

In the world of storefronts, Platterpus Records is a bit of an anomaly, but it’s definitely working for them, and any warehouse sale that also features cocktails  and live bands (as advertised in their last flyer) cannot be a bad thing at all. I REALLY want to try the warehouse sale version of Platterpus Records . Cocktails and vinyl? Oh yes, please.
