Older MK albums in Vinyl
« on: March 12, 2019, 01:54:18 am »
I bought my first turntable last year, and in the process of acquiring MK albums in vinyl. I got last three albums already (DTRW, Tracker, and Privateering). However, I do find it very difficult to get the older albums- espcially Shangrila, STP, and RPD. I couldn't find these albums in the MK store or in Amazon. I do find some used one in Amazon and Discogs... but man, those are way above my budget!

Do you guys know if there's any other way I can collect old MK albums in vinyl, which of course wouldn't cost me a fortune? Also, does MK.com regularly replenish the stocks for these albums in vinyl? If they do that, then I can wait. I have no rush to have them immediately :)

Stp doesn't exist on lp.

The first one released on lp was ragpickers and was a limited edition out of print. Most of mk LPs are out of print but you will find them in second hand stores at high prices.
You might get lucky, now and then

My dog got into my albums, did about 2K of damage to older stuff.

Kill to Get Crimson was the only Mark Knopfler album that got damaged, Disc one has a few surface scratches, but plays OK. Disk two was not damaged.
You can have it for the cost of the shipping from Ottawa Canada. Lucky for me I have a second copy.

I have a friend that has a copy of Shangrila that he wants to sell, PM me a offer and I will pass it onto him.

Ragpickers, Shangrila and All the roadrunning are the most difficult lp's to find as they are all out of print, and the most expensive ones, they usually reach prices over 200 dollars...

All the rest are available in amazon, except GH and STP that doesn't exist on lp.
