RecordStoreDay 2013 Update 2

So another night, and another update from the enormous RSD13 haul.

First up is the nice UK/US Biffy Clyro releases of “Modern Magic Formula”and “Black Chandelier” on clear splattered vinyl

Then it’s time for two of the RCA Victor branded signed releases for Kodaline and Dry The River (I am missing the Everything Everything release – boo)

Then on to some 12″ singles from Dutch Uncles, The Joy Formidable, the Grouplove/ Frightened Rabbit split that features the Manchester Orchestra and then the two Jamie xx edits of The xx’s Sunset and Reconsider (presented in a normal die cut xx white sleeve but with a metallic looking wrap around inner sleeve)

Then, it’s the turn of the Recover EP from CHVRCHES on orange translucent vinyl – it’s so nice I took a photo of it being spun

Now for the last item of this update – and the newest in the entire haul – only being picked up on Monday night – the Soundgarden King Animal Demos EP – unfortunately not on pink vinyl like the US fans, but instead on boring black

Boxset Tuesday

What’s better than receiving that boxset that you have been waiting for since mid 2012. Two different boxsets that you have pre-ordered arriving on the same day πŸ˜€

That is was has happened today

I hereby welcome Biffy Clyro and Soundgarden’s latest offerings into my collection.

So what’s in the box….

Soundgarden:

Pretty standard contents here I’m afraid (let’s not worry about the price).

Both the vinyl (2x180gram audiophile) and CD edition of the album – with a bonus DVD.

Also, thrown in is the obligatory “art cards” and 12″ version of the CD inlay.

Biffy Clyro:

Now, if it is one thing we already know (following the highly impressive Only Revolutions boxset) – and that is that Biffy put the effort into their special editions, and the haven’t let us down.

Nicely packed in this set you get..

Both the Vinyl (2x180gram audiophile, individually stored in the own sleeves) and the double CD/DVD versions of the album are in here together with…

– Guitar tab for the album
– Lyric book for the album
– Piece of art and film clipping from the album sleeve shoot – I got a leaf, not sure if it is the same for everyone.

Right, I’m off for listen.

17th October: Mid Week Update

1st ever wordpress blog update. Big thanks to Realization Music for the development of my WordPress pages.

New additions to the Vinyl Collection in the last few weeks have included some pretty special items, my personal favourite being my Biffy Clyro – Infinity Land Expanded Edition reissue from Beggar’s Banquet (below).

Other notable additions; the fantastic new 7″ singles from Everything Everything and Dog Is Dead and the rather quite flashy Muse “The 2nd Law” Thermo-reactive Deluxe Box Set.

If you are interested in seeing my collection in full, head over to my “My Music” tab for a link to the latest catalogue.
