JJ’s Vinyl Saves Your Christmas

Posted by on December 09, 2016 . .

Christmas is just around the corner and we’re here to help you with last minute gift ideas! We’ve got a few vinyl albums that will go perfectly with your loved ones (or your own) vinyl collection.


Music has a way of relaxing, transporting and lifting our mood, and there’s nothing quite like spinning your favourite album with family and friends whilst celebrating the festive season. Vinyl’s becoming so popular that for the first time ever vinyl sales eclipsed digital music sales for the last week of November, it looks like people are catching on to how much better their favourite albums are on vinyl.

At JJ’S Vinyl we have a range of new vinyl record pressings that will suit any music taste, and they’re available for delivery all over Australia.


We have more than a few suggestions for that perfect Christmas gift, in fact here are ten suggestions.

The Crowded House reissue series is some of the greatest things to come out on vinyl this year,  featuring the brilliant albums Crowded House, Temple of the Low Men, Woodface, Together Alone and Afterglow, all of which are sounding better than ever on heavyweight 180gm vinyl. With hits such as ‘Don’t dream it’s over’, ‘Better be home soon’, ‘Four seasons in one day’ and ‘Distance sun’, to name but a few, I know what records I’ll be spinning this Christmas.












If you’re looking for something to rock out to this Christmas, there’s nothing better than Metallica’s new album Hardwired to self-destruct has just been released and at JJ’S Vinyl we have 3 versions available for purchase, the 2LP Black vinyl, 2LP Red vinyl and the 3LP coloured vinyl box-set. The album debuted at number 1 in the States with 300000 sales in the first week alone, this is a must own album for Metallica fans. I personally recommend the 2LP Red vinyl as it’s a limited edition Black Friday Record Store Day only release, and it won’t last long, so grab it now.


Fans of The Beatles are in for a treat with the remixed and remastered The Beatles - Live at the Hollywood Bowl on 180g Vinyl, and including 4 previously unreleased tracks. The cover blurb states ‘The closest you can get to being at the Hollywood Bowl at the height of Beatlemania’, and the album really does put you right in the middle of rock history – it has to be heard to be believed. Get in quick as copies are limited.













Hip-hop fans won’t be disappointed with our Christmas offerings either, with albums available from artists like Kendrick Lamar, Nas, The Beastie Boys, Wu-Tang Clan, MF Doom, Ghostface Killah and Kanye West to name but a few.

One of my personal favourite Hip-hop artists at the moment would have to be Kendrick Lamar, we have 3 of his albums in stock, Untitled Unmastered, Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City 2LP and To Pimp a Butterfly and they make the perfect Christmas gift. If you’re super quick you might just get one of the last few autographed Kendrick Lamar Untitled Unmastered albums on vinyl.


With 2016 being such a huge year for vinyl reissues and releases you really are spoilt for choice. If you still can’t decide which album to buy as a gift this Christmas, why not give a JJ’S Vinyl gift Certificate? Let your loved one grab the album they want and stop worrying about finding that perfect gift.
