New Vinyl, Vintage Katalog, and Kollectibles

New Vinyl available for orders, pre-orders and special orders will be the latest version available from our distributors, sealed and unopened. Runout matrix cannot be confirmed. Color variance cannot be confirmed and may vary from issue to issue. Cover images aren't images of the actual jacket. Minor details may vary.

On special releases and limited editions we reserve the right to limit the quantity to 1 per customer.

All Vintage Katalog records have been carefully inspected before adding them to our stock. They have been loved but played carefully. You get a copy pressed at the time of the record release, but we can't ensure nor we will provide pressing details. Images reflect standard/common cover art and pressings. Minor details may vary. If you are seeking a specific pressing please contact us at [email protected].

All Kollectibles LPs are meticulously graded, inspected, and VPI cleaned prior to shipping. Occasionally more images are available upon request. All Kollectibles sales are final.

Please note: subject to management ordinance Kops Records does NOT offer Bob Dylan or Donovan records for sale on the online store. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Special order requests for albums by these artists will not be fulfilled. Again, we apologize.
