Part 3 – Top 25 Albums For The Plus Years 1988 – 1993 [31/12/21]

Finishing off the mini-series with Part 3 Top 25 Albums For The Plus Years. My album buying days really died off literally in the first half of 1993. I think l bought one album for the whole year. I had simply moved away from vinyl and transferred my interest to CD. The other thing was in the later 80’s and early 90’s, l was based mostly in London. I had a huge top floor apartment close to where l worked and was hardly ever in.

I worked in Fashion Management and Training, l was writing erotic poetry and l was also a semi full time working escort for the adult industry. When not writing training modules or naughty bawdys or rump filled tales of absolute spankery l was partying hard and danced from dusk to dawn in the nightclubs. I rarely had any relax time left with only 24 hours in the day.

By 1993, l was starting to stupidly calm down and l got engaged and was married the following year in 1994. I sold my entire music collection of albums and singles off in 1995 for the grand sum of around £500. I wish l had kept them but not for any sentimental reasons purely financial for l think they may have been worth a bit more than £500 today. Hey ho, such is life.

Between the years of 1988 – 1993 my interest in music had switched in taste from the more popular commercial ‘trendy’ typical nightclub stuff to a more defined beat. I had two main passions house and heavy metal, with the former being the most popular genre.

Anyway, without further ado, as they say, the year is not getting any longer …

  1. 🙂 The music in the nineties era was certainly unique.

    I will always remember Black Box’s “Everybody Everybody” being on heavy rotation on the radio.

    Do enjoy the rest of your day, Rory.

    1. Hey Renard, hahahaha oh yes very very much so. It was a huge track for the nightclub scene. I remember everyone would be trying to replicate the significant ‘Awow’ throughout the track 🙂

      Thank you and whishing you a lovely evening and a great new year 🙂

  2. 88 to 93 found me raising teenagers, divorcing my ex, and getting a masters degree. No partying for me. Most of your LPs are unfamiliar to me. A few are filled with memories. Have a great New Year.

  3. In 88 I was living in my car, sold a bunch of vinyl for pennies on the dollar… like you, I wish I had those now. Cha-ching!

    89 I became a Mama… 91-93 were dark years…very dark.

    I know most of your list surprisingly. I expected more “house” but it was pretty new at the time, not as much variety as there is now

    Happy New Year to you & Suze!

    1. Hey Gramma, oh yes, kerching indeedy, but hey always the way.

      I was creating a post today for January 30th . [New writing schedule begins from 1st January as in only creating posts once every three days and now l spend an entire day creating the next month]

      But as l was creating the end of month post, l was thinking oooh how l wish l had all those letters today, they would be worth an absolute mint! These letters are to the horror authors l used to correspond with in the 80’s and 90’s and some real crackers there were too.

      Well l wanted to show a more diverse range otherwise it would have been all house 🙂

      Wishing you and all at Casa a fantastic evening ahead and great new year in 22 🙂

  4. Wow! Those are some great tunes, Rory! Yes, music in the nineties was most unique and, IMO, the music that followed the nineties became lack luster. Happy 2022 to you and Suze!

    1. Hey Eugenia, many thanks and best wishes and greetings to you and yours – make it great is l think something you would say 🙂

      I totally agree with you, the music after the nineties sunk quicker than the ill-fated Titanic.
