Great Sounding "Alternative" Music on Vinyl

We were going to "Alternative" clubs in the UK in the 80's and 90's. Back then it was The Sisters of Mercy, The Cult, Ministry, The Mission, The Damned, The Ramones, Dead Kennedys, The Cramps, Fields of the Nephilim, New Model Army, New Order, etc. All still sound good on vinyl :) Maybe "Alternative" was different in the US? Most clubs that advertised "Alternative" in the UK were Alternative/Goth/Industrial/Punk clubs. One is still going strong!

I'll be keeping an eye on this thread!

I've acquired 10,000 maniacs, Pixies Doolittle, R.E.M. Document and INXS Listen Like Thieves on MoFi. I also have Counting Crows and Gin Blossoms on Analogue Productions. I'm currently looking for good pressings of Depeche Mode's Violator, The The Dusk and the Stone Roses. The new Police boxed set sounds promising.

That Jeff Buckley Grace you guys are talking about is approaching upwards of $300, I have the 2010 Columbia pressing.

I just ordered the Police box set today, based on the excellent reviews on the steve hoffman forum.

I just picked up the Matthew Sweet Girlfriend LP that was just re-released and remastered this week. It sounds fantastic but has to be returned due to a major defect on side 4.

Talk Talk Colour of Spring 2014 reissue also sounds VERY good and is dead silent! So is the 4LP set of Dave Matthew and Tim Reynolds Live at Luther College.

Keep'em coming!

Weezer Blue album from the UK with "320" barcode is very good IMO.
