THE GREAT JB HI-FI VINYL MARKDOWN (2021): Darling, can I borrow your credit card?

And now a word from our sponsor.

Not exactly, but JB Hi-Fi has been longtime supporter of Elsewhere and as readers would know we were invited to write a couple of magazines for them: The 2011 Cornerstone Collection of 101 (and more) CDs essential in any decent collection, and then the sequel late last year The JB Hi-Fi Guide to Essential Vinyl.

With Record Store Day upon us and because JB needs to make room on their shelves for new and even more vinyl, it has decided to clear current stock and is dumping records at half price.

We've seen the list – almost 1500 titles, some of course in limited numbers – but we know you won't have the time to trawl through so we here single out just 30 which leaped out at us.

jb_logoHold onto your hat and let go of the credit card . . . here's how you stock your own shelves cheaply . . . 


Records for $20

Or less where stated, some on coloured vinyl
