Flexi Discs

Post#1 » Mon Dec 24, 2018 6:00 pm

I recently bought a couple of flexi discs at a second hand store and wondered if there are any people out there who also buy or collect these. I know there are some bands who exclusively released some singles on this format, I also know that the sound quality on these is, lets just say, average at best. Curious if people collect these. Cheers, Rob

Flexis were mostly a Japanese thing, right?

I have a handful, mostly promos from way back in the 80's. I have a White Wolf, Grim Reaper, Black N Blue and a few others I think. They had a clear plastic "vinyl" on a cardboard backboard with a band graphic, at least the few I have do...

Probably yes. And the vast majority of the ones I have wasn't/isn't(?) available in other format yet.

The ones I have are all promos I believe apart from the Znöwhite one, I have Anvil, Motörhead, Grim Reaper, Inner Rage and a lot of those freebies given away with magazines (Kerrang, Sounds etc) Seems to be mostly a Japanese thing yes.
