It’s really hard to find good heavy metal vinyl collections, this is a rare exception. I managed to pick this one up with someone in Pittsburgh who answered my ad seeking vinyl collections. I paid a pretty penny for this collection, but it’s well worth it as is all the vinyl is in near-mint condition and contained many HUGE TILES (most first press). Check out this video of the unboxing.
Since it’s pretty clear many of us (including me) are living in the past (rightfully so)…what is your favorite year for Thrash Metal? You can choose from 1983-1991. Personally, I’m going to have to choose 1986 with classic such as Pleasure To Kill, Darkness Descends and Reign In Blood pulling much of the weight, but what is your pick?

Wild Riders Of Boards Arts from The Original Issue
Dealing With It was the second full length album by D.R.I. and feature a punkier sound that would be found on their later work, but still showed the coming crossover style that the band was known for. Issued on Enigma Records in the United States (72069-1), the album was very influential on the burgeoning thrash metal scene.
Musician like Dave Lombardo from Slayer cite the album as being very influential.
I doubt this record has been played more than five times. The sleeve has a small amount of wear/scuffs, but nothing excessive at all. When I was buying these in these LPs in the ’80s — I would dub a cassette to listen so that I would wear out the grooves, so the vinyl is in excellent condition and has been stored and comes with a rice paper protective sleeve.
