Not blaming the record companies, just the colored vinyls… any thoughts? The labels were punched out before the vinyl was ground up and melted down. Sometimes a bit of label would get in with the vinyl if the label were originally off-center, for example , but that was pretty rare.
Vinyl is the ultimate historical musical artifact. Everything about the vinyl should feel like it represents what the music is about. Not going to lie.. I will sacrifice slighty better sound quality for an artifact that has history ingrained in it ie.
The sound difference between black vinyl and colored vinyl is really not that discernible. Sometimes you would see pieces of the old labels in the vinyl.
They could cause clicks, pops, skips, etc. The purer the vinyl virgin yes even black , the more light would show through.
Colored vinyl is nice. Almost exclusively classical music targeting people who wanted high quality sound. Pressing and mastering are much more significant than the color of the vinyl. I have nothing against colored vinyl as long as these two jobs are done well. When buying a second hand record, colored vinyls are a minefield. You cannot reflect light and see the possible defects as well as black vinyl. The worst in this case are the clear vinyls. Even the sleeves were better quality.
Flip back garrod and loft house for example. After that they charged a premium for deluxe. It really just depends on the particular pressing. And on a side note: nothing beats the look of a well made splatter vinyl!
Just my two cents :. Anyway, has it been proven that colored vinyl has inferior fidelity compared to black? Has it been established that the carbon black makes for a better pressing substrate? Go colored vinyl, go picture discs! Having worked in multiple pressing plants and for multiple record labels, I can say that colored vinyl can sound just the same as black.
Most all colored vinyl is pressed after the full run of black vinyl and occur on worn-out stampers. The current backlogs for every step in the vinyl record process makes for sloppy or non-existent quality control — these problems of haste equally afflict all vinyl colors. I just go for a version with the best price.
For example, you can find a barely-played 60s pressing of the soundtrack for a couple bucks…and often in dollar bins. Why do I need an expensive colored repress?! Thanks for letting people know! Some really low-grade vinyl sometimes looks brown but is actually black because the wax is so thin you can see through it.
In the end, it goes what people want. As a vinyl junkie and I can admit that. I like vinyl. I think coloured vinyl is great when it adds something to the understanding of the music or what the artist is trying to convey.
When done thoughtfully and well, clever packaging and coloured vinyl can actually enhance the music and therefore the listening experience as a whole.
So 2 pops with every spin …. Even the most pristine black vinyl cannot represent the music as accurately as can high-resolution digital.
Part of the fun for me is tracking down limited pressings, preferably on colored vinyl which I feel enhances the artistic design of the entire package and increases my enjoyment. To my knowledge, vinyl was changed to black to conceal the blemishes of the raw PVC.
Whatever the reason, black is the standard to which median prices can generally be set whether it starts that way or not. Which more or less proves your point that color makes zero difference. Do you have an example of a record being colored and it not being mentioned on the sleeve?

The earliest multi-track records, issued around by Grey Gull Records , were vertically cut 78 rpm discs known as "2-in-1" records.
These had finer than usual grooves, like Edison Disc Records. Their narrower grooves, achieved by lowering the cutting levels and sound compression optionally, enabled them to hold up to 7. This practice became much less common with the advent of triple-speed-available phonographs. Billboard introduced a weekly EP chart in October , noting that "the teen-age market apparently dominates the EP business, with seven out of the top 10 best-selling EP's featuring artists with powerful teen-age appeal — four sets by Elvis Presley , two by Pat Boone and one by Little Richard ".
In the UK Cliff Richard and The Shadows , both individually and collectively, and The Beatles were the most prolific artists issuing EPs in the s, many of them highly successful releases. The Beatles ' Twist and Shout outsold most singles for some weeks in The success of the EP in Britain lasted until around , but it later had a strong revival with punk rock in the late s and the adaptation of the format for 12" and CD singles. Some classical music albums released at the beginning of the LP era were also distributed as EP albums—notably, the seven operas that Arturo Toscanini conducted on radio between and In the s, they began appearing on compact discs.
These usually featured the original casts of actors and actresses. Each album contained two seven-inch records, plus a fully illustrated booklet containing the text of the recording so that children could follow along by reading. Some of the titles included Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs , Pinocchio , and what was then a recent release, the movie version of 20, Leagues Under the Sea that was presented in In the Philippines , seven-inch EPs marketed as " mini-LPs " but distinctly different from the mini-LPs of the s were introduced in , with tracks selected from an album and packaging resembling the album they were taken from.
Some novelty EPs used odd shapes and colors, and a few of them were picture discs. Alice in Chains was the first band to ever have an EP reach number one on the Billboard album chart. In , Warner Bros. Records revived the format with their "Six-Pak" offering of six songs on a compact disc. Due to the increased popularity of music downloads and streaming beginning the late s, EPs have become a common marketing strategy for pop musicians wishing to remain relevant and deliver music in more consistent timeframes leading to or following full studio albums.
In the late s to early s, reissues of studio albums with expanded track listings were common, with the new music often being released as stand-alone EPs.
In October , a Vanity Fair article regarding the trend noted post-album EPs as "the next step in extending albums' shelf lives, following the "deluxe" editions that populated stores during the past few holiday seasons—add a few tracks to the back end of an album and release one of them to radio, slap on a new coat of paint, and—voila!
A article in Forbes discussing Miley Cyrus ' decision to release her then-upcoming seventh studio album She Is Miley Cyrus as a trilogy of three EPs stated: "By delivering a trio of EPs throughout a period of several months, Miley is giving her fans more of what they want, only in smaller doses.
When an artist drops an album, they run the risk of it being forgotten in a few weeks, at which point they need to start work on the follow-up, while still promoting and touring their recent effort.Details about Joe - All That I Am, LP, (Vinyl) See original listing.
