    Since I like a lot of indie/alternative stuff from the 90s and later that has never been released on vinyl at all, but that I wish was (for collector-ish reasons, sound quality reasons, etc.) I thought I'd start a thread listing them. Who knows, maybe someone with a vinyl reissue label will read this and get some ideas. Again, keeping this to albums that have never had a vinyl release (and if it turns out any of them have had, please let me know...):

    Acetone - If You Only Knew
    Aztec Camera - Frestonia
    Bash and Pop - Friday Night Is Killing Me
    The Cardigans - Super Extra Gravity
    Cinerama - Torino
    Cotton Mather - Kontiki/etc
    (Stephen) Duffy - I Love My Friends/Keep Going/Runout Groove
    Echo and the Bunnymen - What Are You Going to Do with Your Life?
    The Frank and Walters - The Grand Parade
    The Lucksmiths - A Good Kind of Nervous
    Grant McLennan - Fireboy/Horsebreaker Star/In Your Bright Ray
    Eddi Reader - Basically all her solo albums
    Revolver - Baby's Angry (though I guess basically all released on 12" singles)
    Trashcan Sinatras - Weightlifting
    The Wedding Present - Take Fountain

    This is all (kind of) well known stuff, so I figure maybe there is a chance. Of course there are many more obscure things I would love to have on vinyl, but never gonna happen. Any one else have any similar wishes?...

    Joann Shaw Taylor - White Sugar
    And , wow, thinking hurts ..

    I have my own wish list. x2 on The Cardigans one (plus reissue all their older stuff too). Also:

    a-ha - Lifelines
    Echo & The Bunnymen - The Fountain
    Lou Barlow - EMOH (I heard this exists on LP, but good luck finding it)
    Paul Westerberg - 14 Songs
    Bleu - Redhead

    I'm sure there are more. Some 1990's stuff and up to at least the early 00's.

    Older Stone Temple Pilot albums. Of course they were released on vinyl, but in limited numbers. So they are rare and expensive. (Excluding their recent self titled album of course).

    I would love releases of those albums, too, particularly No. 4, but it was my understanding that that album along with Shangr-la had never been pressed to vinyl, not even in limited numbers.

    Oh, I guess it was just Core and Purple then. But yeah, I'd love to see those titles on vinyl too. I thought they might do it for the recent 20th anniversary of Core, but I was a bit disappointed when they hadn't.

    I was gonna say the Pulp Fiction soundtrack, but it looks as though it was released on vinyl back in the day. I imagine copies must be scarce.

    A couple of years ago a small time Canadian band called Social Code did a great album called Rock 'n' Roll. It would have been a great vinyl album. Sass Jordan and Whitesnake's Brian Titchy's new album Something Unto Nothing would be a nice vinyl release too.

    And Coverdale Page, definitely Coverdale Page.

    I'd like to see this released on vinyl. It's never been released in any format. I found it in a trunk full of tapes at a flea market a couple of years ago;



    I also found a 4 track studio tape of this group, [different line-up] and some other unknown jazz and funk stuff.
