I picked up some nice discs for Record Store Day this year. I got there early enough but still missed out on a couple of my top choices. A reissue of the Cure’s Kiss me Kiss me Kiss me on red vinyl (only 2 available at the shop I went to) and a Factory Records sampler that apparently wasn’t available at any record store in Burlington.
This is a 10″ LP on 180g red vinyl with songs originally recorded in 1950. The title is Distinctive Rhythm Instrumentals, and that is what it delivers. I’m loving this one.
A reissue of Miles Davis Round About Midnight, his debut on Columbia Records that was originally released in March 1957. It’s on 180g vinyl and numbered 3742 but I don’t know how many were pressed.
White Stripes – White Blood Cells.
The third album originally released by the White Stripes in 2001, this one is remastered and reprinted by Third Man Records. This LP is pressed on black, 180 gram vinyl and also included an mp3 download coupon for entire album.
This one was compiled for the 20th anniversary of Richard Litterateur’s stoner masterpiece Dazed & Confused. It’s a double LP on 180g green colored vinyl, limited to 5000 numbered copies. Mine is number 2360/5000. I love this movie for many reasons, not the least of which is because I was in High School from 71 to 75 and know what they’re toking about. This is basically the soundtrack to those years.
Included in my goody bag was Terminal Sales, Vol. 6: The Silver Ticket 2013 label sampler—a 19-track CD sampler from Sub Pop Records featuring “a heaping helping of new, and in some cases somewhat rare, tracks from the likes of Low, Shabazz Palaces, Mudhoney, Father John Misty, Still Corners, Pissed Jeans, and 13 others”. I have a feeling this is going to end up costing me, in the end.
