Vinyl - question

Post by hangoutgang » November 8, 2014 8:26 pm

Hey phriends,

Just starting to get the Vinyl collection going and so far have the following:

S.O.A.S.O.A.S.
You had to be there..
Living and Dying..
Somewhere over China
Last Mango...

Anyone know if the vinyl recordings go all the way through Songs from St. Somewhere? I'm also curious to what Vinyl records everyone else has in their collection...

Jimmy's vinyls go all the way up to Off To See The Lizard. Also, last year he released a limited amount of vinyl on Songs from saint somewhere.

As for my own collection- I have every album on vinyl. Including Down to Earth and High Cumby. The album art are framed and hang by my pool table in my "man cave." In addition to jimmy, I also have many Willie albums, rock classics, dead, etc. it has become a little hobby of mine.
Good luck on your finds!

Jimmy's vinyl recordings started with the 1970 LP Down to Earth and run continuously through Off to See the Lizard which was released in 1989. After 1989 Jimmy's albums were released on CD and Cassette only until 2002 when cassette releases ended with the album Far Side of the World.

Some of Jimmy's early vinyl LP's have 2 different releases on 2 different labels this is due to Jimmy recording for ABC records from 1973 to 1978. The ABC Records vinyl LP's included the albums "A White Sport Coat and A Pink Crustacean, Living and Dying in 3/4 time, A1A, Havana DayDreamin, Changes in Attitudes Changes in Latitudes, Son of a Son of a Sailor and Jimmy's first live album You Had to Be There. These ABC vinyl LP's were released with all kinds of album art, lyric sheets, and other goodies. Most of the ABC LP's were released in what were known as gate fold album jackets which open like a book and include photos and other album art on the inside.

MCA records absorbed ABC Records in 1979 and they obtained the rights to all of Jimmy's ABC albums and promptly reissued them as MCA LP's. In doing the reissues however, MCA discarded much of the artwork, liner notes, lyric sheets and all of the gate fold jackets in favor of cheep low budget reissues. The low budget approach also applied to the mastering of MCA LP's which many people feel do not sound as good as the ABC vinyl LP's

All of Jimmy's LP's starting with Volcano in 1979 and ending with Off to see the Lizard in 1989 were recorded for MCA so there is only one vinyl LP version of each of those albums.

I know this is OT and I have no idea why it even happened but there are reissues of the Margaritaville/MCA LPs on CD with black and white liner notes or if I remember correctly none at all! Certainly the original pressings didn't sell out since they usually make 800 gazillion original copies.

Speaking of vinyl, I really hope they release his entire collection. I know they released TTWW, Tues,Thurs,Sat, and License to Chill last year but should really make it appoint to add the rest of them. Considering how popular vinyl has become...

Does it seem odd that Far Side Of The World and Buffet Hotel hasn't been issued on vinyl? T,TH,S, License To Chill, Take The Weather With You and Songs From St Somewhere are the only vinyl issues. That I've seen anyway.

So I contacted Mailboat Records yesterday and asked if any of the 1990-2000 albums will be released on vinyl and they said they were not sure. They mentioned that among the ones listed they released FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD? I think the guy was wrong because I don't remember that coming out on vinyl. I would have not missed this. Am i going crazy or did the guy at Mailboat Records not know what he was talking about?
