ROSWELL: Record players, vinyl records, and vinyl record collection in Rooster Valley
The first vinyl records from the era of the Rooster’s song were sold on the East Side in the early 1960s.
By 1970, however, records from other eras were becoming available.
One of the most notable is the “Roots” album, released in the 1970s by the label of the same name.
The album is comprised of three reissues from the “Born To Run” and “Born Of Love” eras, with the first two having a different color scheme and a different label.
In the early 1970s, the record label released two vinyl albums of “Born The New Breed” and the “New Breed” single.
These were made in the late ’70s and early ’80s and were labeled as “ROTHSCHILD.”
They are now sold at local record stores and online.
These records have been hard to find in the Roosters own area of East St. Louis, and now you can get them for a fraction of what they cost back in the day.
The “Born” records are worth $8 on eBay, and “ROTH” records sell for $10.
If you don’t have a record player or want to dig for them, you can search online for the records by searching for “ROTTEN ROOTS.”
If you’re looking for the original albums, they were made by a company called ROTTEN.
