The 1980's were without question a revolutionary time for music. Thanks to leaps in technology at the time, the decade saw the birth of many new genres and sub-genres; electronic music flourished as artists developed new sounds and techniques that would help to pave the way for years to come. With groups like Jonzun Crew helping to lead the charge in innovation at the time, artists seemed to be expanding their horizons as they looked beyond the physical world for inspiration. Creating music that was for the time, out of this world, Jonzun Crew used experimental techniques and deep-space inspired motifs to help pioneer a sound all their own that would resonate the world over. Formed by Florida-born brothers Michael, Soni, and Larry Johnson in Boston in 1981 and discovered by Afrika Bamabaataa shortly after, Jonzun Crew were early pioneers of Electro-Funk, a brand-new sound that would later help to lay the foundation for Techno. One of the first groups to use a vocoder on their records, Jonzun Crew were, themselves, inspired by artists by the like Sun Ra and new technology like the OVC; or Outer Space Visual Communicator created by Bill Sebastian. Thanks to their independent spirit, experimental recording techniques and theatrical flair, Jonzun Crew soon found a following, landing on airwaves across the US and beyond. Thanks to the massive success of singles like, "Pack Jam (Look out for the OVC)," "Space is the Place," and "Space Cowboy", all of which charted in the US, their debut album, "Lost in Space", quickly became a cult-classic and has since become a must have for record collectors around the world. As part of their 40th anniversary, Tommy Boy is now planning to re-release the long out of print album as a limited, colored pressing that will without a doubt be in high demand amongst fans.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.

A Note About Pre-Orders
Orders containing both pre-orders and “Available to Order” items from flyvintageandvinyl.com will be shipped in one package when the pre-order title(s) is/are released.

International Orders, Box Sets and Larger Items
may incur an additional shipping fee and we’ll notify you by email before we process your order. Customs forms for international orders are marked as "Merchandise"
and we are not responsible for any additional customs fees when packages arrive at their destination country. Select items aren't allowed to be shipped outside the U.S.
and we’ll issue a refund for these if export restrictions apply. We reserve the right to limit quantities on select items.
