Black Sabbath - Paranoid gatefold vinyl lp record album for sale. We can be fussy or go on with it and make it better for those sensitive audiophile ears who have a great system set up at home. There is more surface noise to colored vinyl as opposed to black vinyl. I own multiple copies of split, tri-colored and quad-colored vinyl and if you listen to those LPs with head phones on you can tell the difference in surface noise.
Especially if one of the sections is black. Also I find it irritating that when some artists release an LP there can be up to 10 different variations of the release! Annoying AF! I always buy the black version for my play copy and leave the other variation just to look at occasionally.
I have found though that there are some really good quality colored vinyl out there and it seems to be the gram and above that sound the best. Also picture discs have improved a lot since the glory days when picture discs were all the rage.
I experiencing a lot more warping, rough edges, particles in the grooves and kinked inserts and inner sleeves. Sure there was warping back then too but usually on popular releases that would sell a lot of units and they packed and shipped them quickly before they completely cooled from the pressing process.
Frampton Comes Alive comes to mind. Love all the comments on this informative article. For those that say record companies always punched out label centers before melting down old vinyl to make new vinyl pressing ….. Not sure if anyone out there knows something about this, but i have recently found that colored vinyl and other variants arrive warped FAR more often than black wax. Not blaming the record companies, just the colored vinyls… any thoughts? The labels were punched out before the vinyl was ground up and melted down.
Sometimes a bit of label would get in with the vinyl if the label were originally off-center, for example , but that was pretty rare. Vinyl is the ultimate historical musical artifact. Everything about the vinyl should feel like it represents what the music is about.
Not going to lie.. I will sacrifice slighty better sound quality for an artifact that has history ingrained in it ie. The sound difference between black vinyl and colored vinyl is really not that discernible.
Sometimes you would see pieces of the old labels in the vinyl. They could cause clicks, pops, skips, etc. The purer the vinyl virgin yes even black , the more light would show through. Colored vinyl is nice. Almost exclusively classical music targeting people who wanted high quality sound. Pressing and mastering are much more significant than the color of the vinyl. I have nothing against colored vinyl as long as these two jobs are done well.
When buying a second hand record, colored vinyls are a minefield. You cannot reflect light and see the possible defects as well as black vinyl. The worst in this case are the clear vinyls. Even the sleeves were better quality. Flip back garrod and loft house for example. After that they charged a premium for deluxe. It really just depends on the particular pressing. And on a side note: nothing beats the look of a well made splatter vinyl!
Just my two cents :. Anyway, has it been proven that colored vinyl has inferior fidelity compared to black? Has it been established that the carbon black makes for a better pressing substrate? Go colored vinyl, go picture discs! Having worked in multiple pressing plants and for multiple record labels, I can say that colored vinyl can sound just the same as black. Most all colored vinyl is pressed after the full run of black vinyl and occur on worn-out stampers.
The current backlogs for every step in the vinyl record process makes for sloppy or non-existent quality control — these problems of haste equally afflict all vinyl colors.
I just go for a version with the best price. For example, you can find a barely-played 60s pressing of the soundtrack for a couple bucks…and often in dollar bins.

Many historians consider this to be the first true rock-n-roll record ever made though this is the subject of heated debate. Despite their incredible influence, the discography of the band is quite short—they only recorded four full-length studio albums. Roky Erickson, the legendary guitarist of the band suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, which caused his career to take many twists and turns.
Eventually he was able to get effective treatment and the band was able to reunite in Erickson passed away on May 31, The Beatles famously recorded this album in a rush.
They had only four songs recorded by the time the deadline was nearing and had to record seven songs in one day — a process that took nine hours and 45 minutes. Both mono and stereo versions are rare and valuable, but the stereo version fetches the highest price. The original UK version of the album featured a graphic of a white speaker with soundwaves emanating from it, set on a bright orange background. The cover design was scrapped, replaced by the photograph of a loudspeaker in the middle of a desert that new wave fans are familiar with, but not before a few were printed with the old design.
It goes without saying that these copies are extremely rare. There were only 16 copies of the second pressing of this compilation album. As you might expect, this led to a tense legal battle that lasted several months.
By the time Elvis Presley made Speedway , he was nearing the end of his acting career. The film was not well received by critics or at the box office. Rumor has it that only copies were printed.
