10 essential Most Wanted tracks… From a car to a house, ratings are most likely around to give us an idea about the value of the good we may be lookin’ for. With music and more precisely some pieces of vinyl makin’ no exception.
10 essential Most Wanted tracks… Probably more than everywhere else, here we go divin’ into a totally subjective universe. This with the value of a specific piece of music not necessarily based on its popularity. But on most cases on its rarity. With the law of supply and demand pretty much rulin’ the whole here as well.
Needless to say as to how we’re bringin’ you miles away from – if not at the opposite of – today’s situation. With some of us lookin’ for a specific package rather than another… Not only because of its intrinsic quality. But also, and at times even more, because of the history it both carries and represents at the end.
As many pieces you would naturally come to find on these shores under the ‘Most Wanted!’ tag as a matter of fact. With more info due to be of a help. This if ever finding yourself in such a situation in our Buying vinyl records: What? How? topic.
Therefore, and as always, a selection is per definition limited. As a result, many are those we couldn’t talk about here. Even though they would have definitely deserved a mention. Most likely due to find an extension later when the right time comes. Nevertheless, you should find thereafter a pretty much illustrative sample of definitive pieces of art/history to lift up your hearts and souls.
Wishing you’ll enjoy the ride as much as we did, while putting it together for you. With your feedback, and a mention of your favorite song more than welcome…
