5 Unique Vinyl Records You Must Have

So, you've finally purchased a turntable. You're sitting at home, headphones plugged into your sound system, but you've already played the one and only record you have more than ten times. It's at this point that you’ve realized it’s time to grow your record collection. 

Classic vinyl records hold a special place in the world of music. This authentic listening experience simply cannot be replicated by streaming services. If you’re interested in doing a deep dive into the most unique vinyl records, you’ve come to the right place. 

And while there are plenty of pre-made records you can buy, something new and different could be creating your very own unique vinyl records! With Freestyle VInyl, your record collection can boast not only the coolest mass-produced records, but also custom vinyl records that no one else in the world can own.

Whether the vinyl is custom-made or mass-produced, let’s check out the list below and have fun listening!

1. Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd's “Dark Side of the Moon” is an essential addition to any record collection. Not only does it have music about every facet of life (time, money, death, love, etc.), but you can also listen to it while watching The Wizard of Oz – what we term as synchronicity. Dark Side remained on the Billboard top 200 chart for 15 years after its release, a record that has yet to be broken. As an album, Dark Side evolves brilliantly, delving into subjects that everyone faces and creating a story in a way that few other recordings have been able to match.

2. Thriller by Michael Jackson

“Thriller” is the best-selling album of all time, having sold over 30 million copies in the United States alone. That's 30 platinum certifications! MJ's movie-like music videos quickly became part of MTV's regular rotation, further solidifying this album's legendary status. Thriller is consistently regarded among the greatest albums of all time, and it is a must-have for any record collection, large or small.

3. Legend: The Best of Bob Marley and The Wailers 

“Legend” is a best-of collection, making it an excellent place to kick start learning about the beginnings of reggae and its many related genres. It's the kind of music that makes you feel good, and people seem to agree: it's the best-selling reggae record of all time. So, get up, stand up and go to the nearest record store to get a copy of Legend.

4. Revolver by The Beatles

Get yourself a copy of “Revolver” as your first Beatles record. It marks a significant shift in the Beatles' music, signaling their transition from the "British Invasion" pop-rock of their initial years to the non-stop experimental tour-de-force that they became. While songs like 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'Tomorrow Never Knows' showcase the Beatles' songwriting prowess, pieces like 'Tomorrow Never Knows' and 'I'm Only Sleeping' also included revolutionary recording techniques including tape loops, double-tracked vocals, and even reversed guitar sounds.
