NEH Records closing mid year 2021....


Recommended Posts

This has been discussed on the Melodic Mafia Facebook page, and it appears to be legit, so I thought I'd let everyone here know that sometime later this year, NEH Records will be closing up shop, as owner, Michael McPherson plans to retire. There will be no new releases carried going forwards, and there has been a "rarities" section added to the site where he is listing older, now out of print releases, with most being sealed. Discs released in the last few years have seen pretty dramatic price decreases as well.

I absolutely HATE to hear this, as NEH Records has been my Go To site for many years, and Michael has ALWAYS provided top notch service.

NEH Records will definitely be missed; thanks for all the CDs :drink:

I've used them less over the last couple of years - but NEH has been a reliable place for buying cd's for a long time.

Have you used NEH less, or are you just buying less CDs? Where else in America do you purchase CDs from? Shipping costs from overseas are so fucking ridiculous, and I really don't want to support Amazon. NEH had surprisingly competitive prices.

Wow! I hadn’t heard they were closing up. That sucks! There are not many options for those of us in the states. Mike would get a pretty good selection of stuff from all over the world. Ordering from overseas is just shitty right now with the high ass shipping rates. Even trying to get cd’s from neighboring Canada can be costly. 
 

Does anyone else know of any other online shops in US that are as good as NEH as far as selection, cost, shipping, reliability, etc.

Sad news indeed,havent ordered in a while from them due to the shipping costs just like you guys but from the other side of the pond.

To be honest it looks as though now that the UK has left the EU that it may even be more expensive to order from europe,had two sellers cancel my recent orders due to a change in postage prices and the need for import charges and paperwork  :( looks like i'll be ordering solely from the UK for a while now...but prices are bound to increase due to the seller having to pay extra to bring the items in?

This is sad. I stopped buying CDs a few years ago and consequently have a hand in what is happening to these places, but it's still sad. A gigantic chunk of my collection came from NEH over a great number of years. Although I contribute to it, it's inevitable and predictable, it's still sad to see these places fold. Thanks for the memories, NEH.

Between 2000-2015, 75% of my purchases were likely from NEH. All of a sudden their shipping costs became unaffordable and I moved on. Then in 2017/18 I stopped buying CDs all together. 
 

It was a very reliable site and I must have bought 2 to 3 hundred titles from them. 
 

still miss getting that package in the mail.

Official statement on the site now:

NEH Records LLC has been in business now for over 25 years. I formed the business with my partner, Bobby Barth back in the 1990’s. At that time we functioned as a production company with a recording studio and as a distributor with ecommerce retail sales. We were one of the very first companies in the world to sell music on the internet. In 1999, we decided to divide the company. Bobby moved to Louisiana to front the Southern Rock band “Blackfoot” and took over the production and recording studio assets. I continued to operate the distribution and ecommerce portion of the business from my office in Colorado. Bobby retired a couple of years ago and it is time for me to do the same.

I am currently exercising an exit strategy that will result in the closure of NEH Records within the next few months. Toward this end, we stopped adding new releases and restocking older titles in December of 2020. We are also selling off all of our inventory and will continue this until all are gone. We add new SALE items to our web store on Wednesday of each week. In addition, we are selling off a number of very rare, collector’s item CDs that we have had in storage for decades. These are in the RARITIES section of the web site. These CDs are new, in mint condition and in many cases, still in the original factory packaging. They are priced competitively with other sites that sell CDs of this type (eBay, Amazon, Discogs, etc). 

It has been a pleasure serving the Melodic Rock music community for all these years. We appreciate the support and friendship we have shared with our customers, the artists, the media, our suppliers and other music business owners and their employees. We will miss you.

Michael McPherson: Owner, NEH Records LLC

    • side effects suck, and can be fatal. Sad, but real life, and extremely rare. More chance of dying from a coconut landing on your head than from a shark attack etc
    • Agree with all that. Glad you got a shot, even if it was not ideal for you to do so.
    • https://thecovidblog.com/2021/07/11/robin-spring-saunders-45-year-old-baltimore-woman-gets-mandatory-mrna-injection-for-employment-dead-six-days-later/ TheCOVIDBlog.com July 11, 2021 Ms. Robin Spring Saunders. BALTIMORE — A 45-year-old mother achieved her goal of employment at one of the most prestigious universities in the world. But she never made it to her first day of work. Ms. Robin Spring Saunders received her first injection of experimental mRNA on June 21, according to her Facebook page. It’s unclear if it was Pfizer or Moderna. But at this point, it doesn’t really matter. She apparently was not thrilled about receiving the shot. But she did it as a condition of employment at Johns Hopkins University, which mandates the experimental shots for all faculty and staff. The adverse effects were almost immediate. Her cousin, Crystal Grainger, wrote on Sunday morning, June 27 that Ms. Saunders was experiencing life-threatening reactions. She was on a ventilator and suffered from brain and heart issues. Ms. Grainger, as some others have reported, said the reaction came after the second injection. But that would mean Ms. Saunders received two shots in less than a week, which is highly unlikely and very dangerous. Several family members and friends confirmed it was the first shot. The damage was too severe to overcome. Ms. Autumn Harvey, Robin’s daughter, confirmed that her mother passed away later that afternoon. Several others confirmed her death thereafter. From dream to nightmare It appears Ms. Saunders wanted to work with autistic children and earned credentials to do so. Her Facebook page indicates that she bootstrapped her way to the Johns Hopkins opportunity. She was working several jobs at the time, including Home Depot, Lowe’s and Amazon. She was hired at Johns Hopkins University to fulfill her midlife goal. Several friends and family members talked about filing a lawsuit against Johns Hopkins. It will be interesting to see if they follow through. Ms. Saunders is survived by her mother and daughter.
    • It was also reported that Santa Cruz's Instagram page was hacked and that's why it was deleted. I hope they return. 
    • via Wiki: Archie Cruz's rehab and band line-up changes & Moonchild (2020–present)[edit] On 2 May 2020, following a tumultuous break-up with Archie's fiancé, he left California and headed back to his native Finland throwing plans for Santa Cruz up in the air while Archie dealt with his personal issues. Ero Cruz and others left the band, leaving the future line-up and planning for Santa Cruz uncertain. On 29 May 2020, Archie Cruz announced on Instagram that he had successfully completed a rehab program. During mid-2020, Archie was accepted as a cast member/participant of the reality TV show Survivor Finland ("Selviytyjät Suomi") due to air in Finland February 2021. After the filming of Survivor Finland, Archie has been writing and recording new music during October / November at Crehate Studios in Gothenburg Sweden. With new management in place plus a team of American and Swedish Producers / Co-writers Archie continues to compile material for and negotiating a new album expected out 2021. In January 2021, Archie Cruz announced the upcoming release of his new single, "Moonchild", and stated that he and Toxy were the only current official members of Santa Cruz. The single was released on 19 February 2021 on all major music platforms, with a music video being released on YouTube simultaneously. The same occurred on 9 April 2021, when a new release titled "Crossfire" was uploaded to all major music platforms, also with an accompanying music video on YouTube. In July 2021, the official Santa Cruz Instagram page was deleted, throwing the future of the band into further speculation.
    • Well damn... just bought one of their albums, come on here to find out if anyone likes them as well, find out they are finished. Awesome...
    • That's what people don't get. It's not even about the vaccine. I'm booked in for my jab too in a week. It's about the government control, the stifling of free speech, the over-reaction of media and bureaucrats, the trampling of individual liberties in the name of supposed "better for all", the destruction of precious childhood years, the virtue signalling of celebrities, the rise of Stasi-style "dob in your neighbour" schemes, etc.  That is what the problem is, and what is most disappointing and disturbing is how easily and willingly people seem to have surrendered all this for this illusion of safety. 
    • Yeah mate, that's not the part I'm worried about. For the record, I get my second jab in a month. I didn't get it because I wanted to, but because there's no point putting off the inevitable, especially with $50 incentive from my workplace, lol.  International, or even nationwide travel seems actual years away down here in this cesspool, but I know that neither will ever be possible again without proof of vaccination. And either will most things, far as I can tell, the way this thing is going.  We even got told this week that going forward it would be hard to maintain our current employment without being vaccinated.  So as much as I despise this mandatory non-mandarory vaccine, I also understand there's no getting around it.
