The Vinyl game is similar to other A-Z music games with the following rules

A - Z by the name of the group or artist's last name followed by the name of one of their albums released on VINYL!!!

As a general guide most releases after around 1985 to 1990 were released on CD with record albums (vinyl) being a limited release if at all. Limited releases DO NOT count, the album must have had been released on vinyl or cassette tape not just released only in CD format.

Any popular music album is acceptable, big band, country, rock, jazz, blues, comedy and yes even hip-hop and rap IF IT WAS RELEASED ON VINYL!!!

In my own personal Album collection which at one time grew to 4 record crates I had an artist for every letter of the alphabet except one 'X' most artists whose names begin with 'X' are post vinyl so as a general rule we will skip that letter.

lets not be picky about greatest hits or best of titles but if the title is unique such as in my examples below then please use the correct title.
Common names may be used 'Zoso' for Led Zeppelin 4 or 'the white album' by the Beatles as examples.

as examples some of my albums were:

A - Argent - Anthology (defiantly not called best of or greatest hits)
B - BTO - Not Fragile
C - George Carlin - Toledo Window Box (just had to use this one)
D - Deep Purple - Made in Japan
E - ELP - Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends ladies and gentlemen: Emerson, Lake and Palmer
F - Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
G - Grass Roots - Golden Grass
H - Heart - Dreamboat Annie
I - Iron Butterfly - Ina Gadda da vida (this was my only 'I' album so this may be a difficult letter)
J - Jethro Tull - Aqualung
K - Kraftwerk -Autobahn
L - Lynyrd Skynyrd - Gold & Platinum
M - Moody Blues - This is The Moody Blues
N - Nilsson - The Point
O - Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells (Perhaps one of the greatest albums ever IMHO)
P - Pink Floyd - Dark Side Of The Moon
Q - Queen - News of the World
R - REO Speedwagon - Decade Of Rock & Roll 1970-80
S - Simon And Garfunkel - Bridge over Troubled Waters
T - (The) Temptations - Greatest Hits (they had them all, gold, anthology, ultimate collection but this was the one I had and I had to put at least one Motown album in this list.)
U - Uriah Heep - Look at yourself (I love the song: July Morning!!)
V - Ventures - Golden Greats ( I love instrumentals, Maybe I'll start an instrumental game next)
W - War - The World Is a Ghetto
X - Skip this letter - I never had an album that goes here
Y - Yes - Yessongs
Z - The Zombies - Time of the Zombies

this is not my complete collection by far but it gives a good variety and example of some of the kinds of albums that one might post to this thread .... have fun

W War - Why Can't We Be Friends

good choices letterchunker but if you read the rules, individual artists should be by last name so Roy Orbison should be under "O" but we get so few posters here now that I don't push the rules much anymore
