VMP 100 FAQ
Eight years ago, VMP boxed up our first few records by hand and sent them out to a small group of people who adore music just as much as we do — all in the hopes of creating a deeper connection to music through vinyl, together. Three additional tracks, over 500 store exclusives, an ever-growing community, and countless indispensable stories later, we’re celebrating our 100th Essentials Record of the Month: MIA’s Kala. To honor this milestone, we’re repressing some of our most beloved ROTMs: 10 titles to explore together that are just as vital to your collection now as they were when we first featured them.

How do I get these titles if I AM a VMP member?A couple ways, actually.
→ Store Purchase
These fan-favorite albums are currently available exclusively to VMP members for store purchase (while quantities last).
You can also expect some to pop up in SWAPs later this year.
How do I get these titles if I’m NOT a VMP member?→ Join the club!
These fan-favorite albums are currently available exclusively to VMP members for store purchase (while quantities last). By becoming a VMP member, you will gain access to purchase all of these titles from our store (in addition to a new record delivered each month + many more perks). Head here to Join the Club with one of our current Records of the Month. Or, browse our past archive and begin your journey with any album that says ‘Join with this Record.’
Is the title I want sold out already?If the product says “Waitlist Me,’ then there is currently no stock available. We strongly suggest joining the waitlist for that product, as there may be additional units released throughout the campaign.
When will these titles ship?Some of the represses are already in-stock at our warehouse and ready to ship. A few others are pre-orders and will become shippable by late May.
Reminder: Use our Direct Ship option at checkout if you want your records as soon as possible, versus bundled in your upcoming ROTM shipment - after the title becomes shippable.
Why did you pick these 10 titles?These 10 titles are some of the most sought-after records in VMP history, and we wanted to create another opportunity for our members to enjoy them. To further explore the stories of our featured VMP 100 albums, what makes them special and why we picked them, check out our Magazine round-up here.
Will the packaging be different in any way?All of the represses will include updated VMP branding & OBI strips, except for Al Green’s Call Me. Outkast’s Stankonia & Spiritualized Ladies and Gentlemen… were originally released with the updated branding & OBI strips, while the others will be different from their original.
Will they be numbered?No they are not, as is consistent will all of the Records of the Month pressings.
