Where to Buy Cheap Vinyl Records
Cheap and newly pressed vinyl don’t seem to be a combination that goes together well. Some of the prices are simply outrageous. With everyone getting involved from your local supermarket to your trendy clothes store, it’s hard to find a good deal.
What we do here at Cheap Vinyl Records is monitor all the major online vinyl record sellers such as Amazon, eBay and many smaller online stores for significant price drops.

We then present these offers to you the customer. Often you will find vinyl offers for £10 or less with 60% or even 70% price reductions.
Many of the bigger retailers actually make it difficult to search for just reduced or bargain records. The search filters just don’t cut it as they often don’t work as they should.
We have devised an in-house method which allows us to quickly source discount vinyl record special offers and allow our customers to browse them quickly and easily, saving not just money but of course time.
The Return of Vinyl
Not so long ago, shortly after CDs became popular, it seemed the end was nigh for Vinyl. Boxes of vinyl were turning up at charity shops or even worse…the local skip.
The idea was that CDs would last forever and always sound better. This was actually nonsense. CDs can scratch quite easily and as for sound..well that’s an ongoing debate.
Warm Sound of Vinyl
Many vinyl enthusiasts rave about the warm sound of their records. Analogue versus Digital..for many, digital lacks warmth and is considered to sound a little harsh in comparison to vinyl.
Again, this is up for debate.
Physical Object vs Download
Another big draw for vinyl lovers is being able to actually hold something real in your hands.
Downloads and streaming certainly have their place but actually holding, for instance a beautiful gatefold cover in your hand while slowly dropping the needle on a lovely new slab of vinyl is an experience to treasure.
Classic Rock Vinyl Album Reissues
The surge of interest in vinyl has seen many record companies get back into vinyl production.
You can buy pristine remastered reissues of classic rock albums on vinyl from the likes of Queen, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, the Who, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Dylan, The Doors, Oasis, Nirvana, Iron Maiden and of course the Rolling Stones…to name just a few.
Vinyl Records Production
As mentioned earlier, many major labels have turned their focus to vinyl in the last few years.
This has caused problems in that there are actually very few vinyl manufacturing presses still working to a high standard. Many record companies actually dumped their old presses after the introduction of the CD, thinking they would never need them again. How much would these be worth today? crazy when you think about it.
Now a heavy workload can mean a slow turnaround for vinyl orders. Some enterprising companies such as Jack Whites 3rd Man Records have ordered and installed newly made vinyl production units.
Special events like Record Store Day in particular can cause a major backlog in worldwide record production with the poor independent labels unfortunately getting pushed to the back of the line.
Where to Sell Vinyl Records
The best place to start online is probably discogs.com. This incredibly useful and detailed website is a great place to start selling your records.
You can easily research how much your records are worth and price them accordingly. Transactions are safe and made through the website similar to eBay which is another good option for selling vinyl.
For rare, vintage or second hand records, these are good places to sell.
