Vinyl Reissues

It's a good week to revisit some old favorites, with a slew of new vinyl reissues hitting the shelves at Amoeba on October 7th. From SoCal pop-punk to Britpop icons, here are our top picks for the reissues you'll want to add to your record collection.

Good Vibrations

The Beach Boys

A couple classics from the preeminent purveyors of '60s era sunshine pop are getting all spiffed up as special edition reissues. In honor of the track's 50th anniversary Good Vibrations is coming out as a 12" EP on sunburst vinyl and Surfer Girl gets a stereo issue on audiophile quality 200 gram vinyl.

Blink-182 Vinyl Box Set

Blink-182

The platinum-selling pop-punks have a huge amount of 180-gram vinyl reissues on the way, including Enema of the State, Dude Ranch, Take Off Your Pants and Jacket, The Mark, Tom, and Travis Show (The Enema Strikes Back), Cheshire Cat, Blink-182, and Neighborhoods. All seven albums are also bundled together as part of the band's vinyl box set.

Whiskey for the Holy Ghost

Mark Lanegan

The gravel-voiced troubadour of dark Americana reissues two LPs that have long been out-of-print on vinyl: his solo debut, The Winding Sheet, and the critically-acclaimed Whiskey for the Holy Ghost.

Operation: Doomsday

MF Doom

The London-born Long Island hip-hop weirdo's debut solo album keeps getting repressed on vinyl -- and keeps selling out. If you missed this year's earlier vinyl reissues of the LP, Operation: Doomsday is back.

Holy Mountain

Sleep

Sleep's influential second LP, Sleep's Holy Mountain, has been repressed on vinyl to delight doom/stoner rock fans everywhere.

If you want even more Sleep, catch them playing two shows in Los Angeles with the Melvins: January 27 & 28 at the Fonda Theatre. Tickets are on sale now at Amoeba Hollywood with low fees!

Coming Up

Suede

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Coming Up, Suede are reissuing their 1996 album as a two-LP vinyl release and as a four-CD + one-DVD box set featuring B-sides, demos, concert recordings, and their BBC TV appearances.
