Porterhouse Prime Vinyl is a collection of vinyl records that have endeared themselves to music fans since their release. Our goal is to keep these titles alive in their original format, preserved and upheld for all to listen to, hold and enjoy.

Wherever possible we have undertaken to reproduce these recordings with the best of today's mastering technology to give you pristine sound quality that surpasses the original pressings.

Prime Vinyl has also attempted to recreate each album's artwork and lyric sheets as they were originally produced. The glory lives on in your hands every time you open up the record and slide it onto your turntable.

Long Live Vinyl!
