Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Wainwright, Rufus - Rufus Wainwright Rufus Wainwright
Pop New - LP 128 Plain
Sealed 2008 2LP Gatefold Vinyl.“What Separates Rufus Wainwright And The Other Second-Generation Singers Who Sprang Up At The Same Time (Sean Lennon, Emma Townshend, And Chris Stills The Most Notable Among Them) Is That Wainwright Deserves To Be Heard Regardless Of His Family Tree; In Fact, The Issue Of His Parentage Is Ultimately As Immaterial As That Of His Sexuality — This Self-Titled Debut Cares Little For The Rock Clichés Of An Earlier Generation, Instead Heralding The Arrival Of A Unique And Compelling Voice Steeped Most Solidly In The Traditions Of Cabaret. Like His Folks, Loudon Wainwright III And Kate Mcgarrigle, He's A Superb Songwriter, With A Knack For Elegantly Rolling Piano Melodies And Poignantly Romantic Lyrics; While The Appearance Of Van Dyke Parks And His Trademark Orchestral Arrangements Hints At An Affinity For The Pop Classicism Of Brian Wilson Or Randy Newman, The Vocals Come Straight Out Of Opera, And Although Wainwright Is Unlikely To Be Starring In La Boheme Anytime Soon, He Conveys The Kind Of Honest Emotion Sorely Lacking In The Ironic Posing Of Many Of His Contemporaries.” – Jason Ankeny, AMG... more details

Wainwright, Rufus - All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu
Pop New - LP B0014192 Decca
Sealed, Out Of Print 2010 2LP Original With Clear Custom Title Sticker On Shrink. “All Days Are Nights: Songs For Lulu Finds Singer/Songwriter Rufus Wainwright Stripping Back The Operatic Flourishes Of His 2007 Album Release The Stars To Deliver A Stark And Deeply Personal Collection Of Songs. Where Stars Often Featured Large Backing Ensemble Arrangements, Here Wainwright Simply Accompanies Himself On Piano, Allowing The Lyrics Of These Poetic, Introspective Songs And His Voice To Take The Spotlight. Never One To Shirk Away From Cerebral And Conceptual Artistic Endeavors, Wainwright Has Adapted Three Shakespeare Sonnets Here That Work Quite Well As Ruminative, Classically Impressionistic-Style Pieces. Elsewhere, Tracks Like "Who Are You New York" And "Sad With What I Have" Feature Wainwright's Longstanding Knack For Clever And Ironic Turns Of Phrase. Obviously, The Memory Of Wainwright's Mother, Kate Mcgarrigle, Who Died In 2010 After An Extended Illness, Hangs Heavy Throughout The Album. It Is Clear That Wainwright Wrote And Recorded Much Of All Days Are Nights During Her Illness, And Themes Of Loss, Depression, And Sadness Permeate These Songs. Wainwright Addresses This Directly In "Martha," A Yearning Plea To His Sister, Singer/Songwriter Martha Wainwright, To Whom He Also Dedicates The Album. Wainwright Sings, "Martha It's Your Brother Calling. Time To Go Up North And See Mother. Things Are Harder For Her Now And Neither Of Us Is Really That Much Older Than Each Other Anymore." The Song, As With Most Of Of All Days Are Nights, Is A Bold, Absolutely Emotionally Naked Statement That Still Retains Wainwright's Devastating Talent For Artful, Universally Compelling Songcraft.” - Matt Collar, AMG... more details
