RecordStoreDay 2013 Update 1

So, here is the first of many RSD13 updates as I go through my impressive haul.

Up first are two of the most important releases (in my opinion) of the day. The items that were first on my list, the Blind Melon and Mad Season reissues. Both are truly amazing debut albums and both are now expanded from the original release.

The Blind Melon one, complete with the Sipping Time sessions

Next up Mad Season with additional tracks:

Now for a couple of other LPs, with the Funeral For A Friend (on nice white vinyl) and Linkin Park (with One Step Closer 10″) debut albums:

Next up, the Placebo B3 EP on clear vinyl with special RSD note to the buyer:

Whilst on the subject of 10″, next up is the Mark Lanegan and Duke Garwood single, Cold Molly. The sleeve is a bit boring, so here is the record on my 1210 instead:

The last, but not least. And strictly not an official RSD release is the Tom Odell covers 12″ – signed by the man instore at Resident Music in Brighton just before their RSD raffle:

And speaking of the raffle, I won a prize, a Esben & The Witch, handmade, limited to 150, tour poster -:
