The focus here is not on a narrowly restricted style, but rather on a broad collection of artists who are somehow labelled under the generic term "alternative", but who each make very independent music. XL Recordings also stands for a certain quality and authenticity. And if you appreciate some of the big names who have released here, you can certainly discover great records in the repertoire, which wrongly are not (yet) in the public focus.
THE medium of the 80's is back and we have increased our stock with classics, box sets and rare editions - largely still sealed. About time to dust off the old tape deck and go on a time travel.
We got our hands on an old stock of mostly still sealed 8-track cartridges. Some of them are even completely unknown to the internet – until now! Exclusive at recordsale. Take a look at this rare but lovely format, you’ll discover some treasures!
Here you will find new products from America and Europe at very fair prices. The US pressings in particular are agreeably priced given their scarcity here in Europe. From thrilling soundtracks to LP boxes (including Amy Winehouse, Jay-Z & Kanye West, Smashing Pumpkins) to LPs and 7-inches from countless artists, there's a lot to discover here...so dig in!

This is about something very special: Rare pressings from Taiwan from the 1960s. These plates were mainly produced for US soldiers stationed in Taiwan. Usually there were editions of only 500 copies, and if there was a reprint, it was different from the previous one again - even if it was from the same label.
These are therefore only true rarities. They often used coloured vinyl (especially orange and red are common) and often have a unique cover design that has nothing to do with the design of the originals. You can also imagine that the press quality is not the very best, gladly the recording was simply made from an (original) record, since the master tapes were of course not available.
The covers are usually the so-called 'Poly-coated Cardboards Sleeves' typical for South-East Asia. These are two printed thin cardboards covered with PVC, which is welded at the edges and on the back of the board.
So - as already mentioned at the beginning - all around special releases, which should make the heart of many (curiosity) collectors beat faster.
