My clear vinyl by Scott of course!! I think I’ve worn holes in that record, especially since it’s signed!!


Tim Weber says:

my favourite vinyl in my collection would probably be Com Truise’s Galactic Melt Redux pressing. NEON ORANGE. incredible.

Red!! It’s always a pleasant surprise when opening up an album and seeing color. Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins – Rabbit Fur Coat :)

Probably my ‘Lost In Translation’ soundtrack. Some great originals by Kevin Shields, Brian Reitzel, and Squarepusher.

Plus that great show of Scarlett’s behind on the front vinyl!

toro y moi – freaking out ep teal vinyl // a friend of mine found a purple vinyl copy of prince’s purple rain at a thrift store if that counts.


Cam K says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:01 pm

Probably the crazy translucent smoke with black/pink splatter on my “Teams – Days Xff” vinyl. Matches the music perfectly.


Iain says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:05 pm

Gotta say that my favorite colored vinyl is Zomby – Nothing. Everything is white, EVERYTHING….

oh wait, I also really like my copy of Adolescents, see thru orange


Melissa says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:06 pm

I loved the gorgeous translucent blue of the Neon Indian Hex Girlfriend single. My second fave is the re-release of Sonic Youth’s Evol. Bubblegum pink with splotches of darker pink.


Yuri says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:07 pm

Siamese Dream – Smashing Pumpkins.
Its a beautiful red marble colour, looks amazing when its spinning.
Its also a great album.


Cirocco says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:10 pm

Sun Kil Moon – Admiral Fell Promises, on white vinyl. It was released during December and I remember listening to it a lot during that snowy winter — now I cant help but want to listen to it every season when the mercury drops.


Shinya Dalby says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:14 pm

Clear, with blank label. Joy Division – Live at the Paradiso, Amsterdam (1980). Mmmmmm, limited to 500 pressings, too. So swell.


Nick Torres says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:14 pm

My emerald copy of Toro Y Moi’s Freaking Out. It may be my favorite record I own, period. Especially considering that I was lucky enough to have Chaz sign the cover.


James says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:21 pm

Com Truise – Galatic Melt ORANGE! My favorite color! Not only that, but two of them. So so so good.


c j m says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:25 pm

ahh! <3 monster rally and would loooove this collection. so far my favorite color vinyl is purity ring's shrines (turquoise), trying to grab up some more :)


Ricky says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:29 pm

I have a couple of clear vinyls that look incredible when they’re playing. Though my absolute favourite is a black and white marble, it just looks mesmerizing when it’s working, it adds a whole other dimension to the ritual of playing records


Austin says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:39 pm

Black Moth Super Rainbow’s “Dandelion Gum” on pink with gold splatter vinyl. It’s what I’d imagine unicorn puke would look like on acid, which is pretty much a description of BMSR


Max says:

January 14, 2013 at 8:42 pm

In the spirit of ISO50’s playlists of 4 songs, I’ll list my top 4 with number 1 being the winner.

1. Stereolab – Dots and Loops
Two colors. White and marbled blue. After 15 years I can still listen to the whole album anytime.

2. Beat Happening – You Turn Me On
Red Vinyl. Incredible record early to the lo-fi game.

3. Cal Tjader – Plays Afro-Cuban
Green Vinyl on Fantasy. You have to give credit to the Fantasy label when you bring up colored Vinyl. The two brothers that ran Fantasy also owned a plastic company and they were some of the first to use colored vinyl.

4. Com Truise – Galactic Melt
Neon Orange and great cover art. This would have been higher on the list if the original press had been orange vinyl, but alas, only the reissue.


lamp says:

January 14, 2013 at 9:11 pm

By far my favorite would be Harlem Shakes Technicolor Health! Beautiful graphic vinyl, but if that doesn’t count, I’d say BMSR’s new Cobra Juicy is quite pretty.


Chad Dryden says:

January 14, 2013 at 9:14 pm

Big fan of the Real Estate Reality 12-inch EP on Mexican Summer – clear vinyl overlaid with a beautiful rainbow burst. Very trippy to watch spinning on the turntable …


Hjalmar K says:

January 14, 2013 at 9:16 pm

That I boughted? Pink/black/white splatter – Electric Circus’ Halloween. Great colours AND the best holiday!! But my favourite of all is the crazy rolling stones vinyl that my parents have. Crazy colours and splashes!!


Kevin Costello says:

January 14, 2013 at 9:19 pm

I’ve always liked my Acid 4×4 double 10″ set. Clear red vinyl with assorted sm:)e logos on the centers. They look great spinning!

Hope to catch you in NYC again soon!


Jamie Blumenfeld says:

January 14, 2013 at 9:29 pm

Actually bought myself? I’m the odd one out – BLACK. Pink Floyd’s 180g DSotM not only was my first “heavy” vinyl but a fantastic rendition of a seminal album.


lamp says:

January 14, 2013 at 9:42 pm

I’d definitely have to go with John Maus’ “A Collection of Rarities and Previously Unreleased Material” not because it’s really off the wall or anything, but because it’s the only color vinyl I own. That said I do like how it looks; bright, translucent pink. Sounds great too!


gpop says:

January 14, 2013 at 10:35 pm

although there’s some pretty colours.. It’ll always be when I lost my waxinity to the black vinyl which goes by the name of Posion by Bel Biv Devoe


Miguel says:

January 14, 2013 at 11:15 pm

Coolest colored vinyl i own is my milk white colored Air Pocket Symphony record. Love pulling that baby out it’s sleeve!


Eric C says:

January 14, 2013 at 11:34 pm

My white second pressing of Desire’s II from Italians Do It Better. Makes me smile every time I hear those Johnny Jewel synth beats.


Julien L. says:

January 14, 2013 at 11:45 pm

In total dedication since years to the copy I have of Boards of Canada’s “In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country”…gorgeous light blue vinyl with those 80’s colorful prints in the center + a major record!


Michael says:

January 15, 2013 at 12:19 am

Red and white marble vinyl 12″ German import of the Smiths William It Was Really Nothing (A Side) How Soon Is Now and Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want (B Side). I don’t think I’ve ever seen another marble vinyl.


Jonatan says:

January 15, 2013 at 12:47 am

Grand Funk – We’re An American Band (Capitol Records, 1973)

The first colored vinyl I bought. It’s transparent yellow with a distinguished black label.


Mathijs Luijten says:

January 15, 2013 at 12:55 am

My favorite colored vinyl would be….
The Doors – Waiting For The Sun [Green edition]

The Doors always did great stuff with their Vinyls, always something special about every single release.


Chris says:

January 15, 2013 at 1:35 am

Hello Nasty, amber coloured vinyl looks the bomb!

That said, none of my coloured vinyl has seen a stylus or turntable ;) I buy a second copy for listening on either 180g black vinyl or standard.


Chris says:

January 15, 2013 at 1:45 am

I still like classic black the best. The semi recent Cake box set that came with a single of each song in a different color was my favorite use of non standard colors.


Butter says:

January 15, 2013 at 2:17 am

The 3 part 6th borough project lp! 1 clear white, 1 clear orange and 1 clear record. amazing design aswell!


Aaron B says:

January 15, 2013 at 3:31 am

Dave Masons Alone together lp was a marbled effect. It’s supposed to look like your tonearm is floating in the clouds. An amazing album from 1970!!


Anders says:

January 15, 2013 at 5:15 am

My favourite color vinyl has to be the first color vinyl I bought. High Violet by The National. Maybe it has to do that I got it for only 10$ after Roskilde festival in Denmark, great experience.


Frank says:

January 15, 2013 at 6:23 am

I watch with excitement as my Marbled Heathered Pearls LP ‘Loyal’ hypnotizes me while spinning on my turntable.


Jack says:

January 15, 2013 at 6:53 am

A copy of The Ramones ‘Road to Ruin’ from the 70s that my Dad gave me, sweet transparent yellow vinyl! It’s a little crackly these days, but that’s all part of the fun.


Evan DuBois says:

January 15, 2013 at 7:21 am

my favorite color vinyl that i’ve ever bought would have to be the Bonobo Black Sands Remixed vinyl, it was orange!


Dean Wheeler says:

January 15, 2013 at 7:59 am

An original pressing of The Flaming Lips’ “Clouds Taste Metallic.”

A wonderfully hard-to-find slab of transparent green that cost me an arm and a leg a few years back. And then they reissued it.


Joshua says:

January 15, 2013 at 8:00 am

Clear vinyl is the coolest: “Ex-Lives” by Every Time I Die. But I also love the bright blue of Memory Tapes’ “Seek Magic.”


Brandon says:

January 15, 2013 at 8:24 am

Jamie XX & Gil Scott-Heron “We’re New Here” – Watermelon Pink with Green center. and reverse colorways on the instrumentals . very juicy


Joost says:

January 15, 2013 at 8:33 am

my favourite color is oddly enough brown. It is also the only colored vinyl i have but is a reissue of Darondo’s 70’s LP. Great tunes.


Blake Barton says:

January 15, 2013 at 9:13 am

I was so excited when Com Truise’s Cyanide Sisters was finally released on vinyl. I with the original cover art made it to the vinyl sleeve, but when I opened it up and learned the disc was ELECTRIC BLUE?!?! That was awesome.

Thanks Ghostly.


Will M says:

January 15, 2013 at 9:17 am

Not mine but got an in person glimpse of Flaming Lips Heady Fwends Blood Vinyl; pretty impressive.


Andrew says:

January 15, 2013 at 9:59 am

My favorite colored vinyl has to be Simple Minds’s New Gold Dream on semi-transluscent gold vinyl with marbled purple. I’ve never seen another record quite so epic.


Jorge says:

January 15, 2013 at 10:09 am

Dj Format Ft. Edan and Mr. Lif – Clear vinyl with black swirls. It looks like it was filled with smoke


donovan silver says:

January 15, 2013 at 10:26 am

i haven’t acquired too much color vinyl, but i like the pink john maus rarities one i picked up on your recommendation!


Mama B says:

January 15, 2013 at 10:51 am

My Dr.Dog – Be The Void album turned out to be a Baby Blue with white and gray splotches mixed in. It’s so nice that sometimes I take it out just to look at it


Austin says:

January 15, 2013 at 11:35 am

I prefer a nice heavyweight black vinyl, but my fav color one I have is probably a glow in the dark version of The Monster Mash! If only Halloween were everyday!


Tim says:

January 15, 2013 at 11:57 am

I rarely get colored vinyls, though I’d love for that to change.
I only have a single non-black vinyl, so it’d have to be that: my pre-order copy of Mixed Emotions by Tanlines. It’s a Tan streaked pressing, which I have to admit is somewhat amusing, since they’re TANlines.


Jason says:

January 15, 2013 at 12:17 pm

My first colored vinyl is also my most cherished. I bought a copy of Ian Dury’s “New Boots and Panties” on “buckskin” vinyl, which is really just goldish. They had to unlock the cabinet for me to get it. It cost an astronomical $17!


Andrew Lawrence says:

January 15, 2013 at 12:51 pm

I have one that looks like superman ice cream. Sometimes I will put it on just to see the colors spin! That crystal ball vinyl is insane!


Shane says:

January 15, 2013 at 1:36 pm

it was definitely cool to grab Panda Bear’s Tomboy for being clear!

although, a multi-coloured Monster Rally set would be my new all-time favourite! Such sweet colours!


Mitch says:

January 15, 2013 at 7:19 pm

Tough call between my white version of the Flaming LIps’s ‘Hear It Is’ and a tie dye pink and blue copy of Dark Side Of The Moon


James Fellhauer says:

January 15, 2013 at 8:44 pm

Back in my alternative rock phase, I bought an Anberlin single that was printed on a tri-color black/white/red 7″. Gorgeous pressing, even if I don’t listen to it anymore.


Bronthor says:

January 16, 2013 at 3:27 am

the DJ Food —
The Illectrik Hoax (A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble Mix by the Amorphous Androgynous) 12″ on Multi coloured Orange


Chris says:

January 16, 2013 at 4:18 am

My clear “Sublime – Date Rape” 12” and the very beautiful “Mars Volta – Live in Tokyo” 12” with a gold, black & white swirl pattern.


KYLE says:

January 16, 2013 at 5:07 am

white, boc’s trans canada highway. most beautiful musical item i ever done see. there is now a scratch right through the first minute of dayvan cowboy. oo i wish it was still prime for listening.

also, i had a lend of nofx’s “the decline” cd. was a wicked transparent cd except for the centre illustration over the 18 minutes of track. wonder if it’s similar in vinyl, if it’s in vinyl at all!


MURRAY says:

January 16, 2013 at 6:36 am

My white copy of Neu! Not particularly rare, but I love the record and having it in clean and fresh white is a bonus!


Brad Conrad says:

January 16, 2013 at 8:48 am

Motörhead – Ace Of Spades is a very strange marbled brown.
Logan’s Sanctuary in pure white.

Both of these colors seem to reflect the material in the respective grooves quite nicely.


Justin Clark says:

January 16, 2013 at 10:29 am

François Virot’s ‘Yes or No’. No crazy splatters or anything, but that particular shade of super-saturated light blue looks so good sitting on my deck.


Luciano Fonseca says:

January 16, 2013 at 10:53 am

Blu and Exile – Give Me My Flowers While I Can Still Smell Them, a beautiful splatter disk from their limited to 500 copies box set.


Dave says:

January 16, 2013 at 1:40 pm

Pure X – Pleasure. Clear with Red splatter. It’s so pretty, I feel bad sticking it with a needle.


David Thuøre Persson says:

January 16, 2013 at 1:49 pm

It is my Demdike Stare:
Elemental Parts One & Two: Chrysanthe & Violetta Orange & Purple vinyl
Elemental Part Three: Rose Blue vinyl
Elemental Part Four: Iris Red vinyl


alex ferko says:

January 17, 2013 at 6:00 am

Hot Chip’s In Our Head transparent red and blue records are wonderfully playful and iconic, and support the music of the album supremely well. Discovering the colour of these records was a amazing surprise.


Christopher heath says:

January 17, 2013 at 4:19 pm

Black Moth Super Rainbow-Eating Us

Black and Brown marble press vinyl with 2 sides being silver laminate designs.


Jeff says:

January 19, 2013 at 3:06 am

I have a beach fossils record that’s on marble colored vinyl. I think that one is probably my favorite colored piece in my collection.


Patryk Ludamage says:

January 19, 2013 at 1:59 pm

I started collecting vinyls since 2011 only and never thought they could be colored or even transparent!

I saw many pictures of them (even had known they were made of unstandart materials like sort of iron or gold) and wondered to have one at least in my collecion. I also have to admit that even my country has poduced colored vinyls too but they were too rare and expensive at those times.

In my very first buy itself i ordered 3×12″ and 1×10″. One of them were Bibio – T.O.Y.S. EP at pink colored 12″. I was very shocked to see that because i havn’t knew what colour it was.

Later i bought some other vinyls but they were all the way black standart color. 1 year later i ordered Com Truise – Cyanide Sisters reissue EP at blue 12″.

I think both of them are my faved ever colored vinyls – they are quite bright and contains stanning tracks and i don’t even mind it’s just EPs )))


Михаил Туманов says:

James says:

Most interesting coloured Vinyl I own has to be my Bat For Lashes – Fur and Gold LP.

It’s like turquoise and purple tie dye! amazing


Aanand says:

January 23, 2013 at 3:02 pm

My favourite coloured vinyl is the new Lorn – Ask The Dust LP on Ninja Tune

(and I read somewhere each one is totally unique…not sure about that though)

Also I’m in love with my UNKLE Never Never Land Picture Discs by a graffiti artist from NY back in the 80’s…who’s name slips my mind right now.
