Here's an update on some new vinyl that we have recently purchased.
I will start with a few online purchases:
The White Stripes - You Don't Know What Love Is (You Just Do As Your Told) 7 inch
I bought this off ebay from the Netherlands and got a great deal. It is a 2007 pressing that still has the sticker intact, I haven't brought myself to break the seal yet but I'm sure one day (very soon) I will.
Beck - Third Man Records Blue Series
The side A song - I Just Started Hating Some People Today - is really really interesting. It's the weird Beck that we all are used to.
Jack White - Freedom at 21
A new single from Jack White's album Blunderbuss. Side B has a non album track. I was too interested to hear it to not buy this 7 inch!
The Dead Weather - Live 12 inch single
Mr. Empty got this at Papa Jazz early one morning. It's pretty rare for Papa Jazz to have these in stock because they get purchased very quickly. It's a cool record and I'm glad that we own it.
Donovan - Wear Your Love Like Heaven
Found this at 2nd and Charles for 5 bucks! A great steal for this original stereo pressing.
Frank Sinatra - My Way
I brought this a Goodwill yesterday for 50 cents! The cover is a little beat up but the vinyl itself is in wonderful condition! My grandfather was a huge Sinatra fan so it rubbed off on me. There was almost an entire catalog of Sinatras records but this on was the only one is decent shape.
Bring Me To The Horizon - Suicide Season
The cover is pretty disturbing but Mr. Empty was super excited to find this record at Manifest Disc and Tapes.
Cage The Elephant - Thank You Happy Birthday
This record came in the mail the other day and we were both very excited! We got to see them play live last year and they did a bunch of songs from this album. I don't know why we didn't get it sooner
The Strawberry Alarm Clock - Incense and Peppermints
I got this first pressing stereo copy for $8 dollars at Papa Jazz on our last visit. Upon inspection of the record, I found that it is beat to shit. But, the owner assured me that it played above the grade. I took a chance and it plays with pops, skips, or noise. Which is insane considering that it looks like someone rolled over it repeatedly with a desk chair.
Big Brother -Confusion
This album is one big bag of confusion! I'm not entirely sure what it is or who it is by but it's pretty darn good! It cover looked so interesting I had to take a chance. I looked it up on the internet to see if I could find any info. It turns out that this is an early sixties L.A. band by Ernie Joseph. I'll definitely be looking for more albums of theirs in the future.
Frank Turner - I Still Believe (UK Record Store Day Exclusive)
My friend David Goodship knows my love for Frank Turner and he was kind enough to get this and send it over the pond to me. I was super excited to finally get it after looking across 3 states for it and on ebay and having no luck getting a deal on it. Side B features a Queen cover Somebody To Love which is amazing. Mr. Empty and I had the pleasure of hearing it live last October in Atlanta. Thanks again David!
