The Ol’ Red, White and Blue…….how apt!

Following on from the earlier post – I did find some 7″s for myself and, what, with being in the States and all, are the chances of randomly buying vinyl that shares the same colour as the National flag.

My Chemical Romance – No.2 (Cherry Red Vinyl)
Joy Division – Love Will Tear Us Apart (White Vinyl)
Mark Lanegan – Same Old Man [Karen Dalton Cover] (Blue Vinyl)
The Gaslight Anthem – The Señor and the Queen (2x Black Vinyl)


So another successful day……

Surely there won’t be anymore vinyl purchasing updates from Boston in the remaining 3 days…..


October Vinyl

October was good month for coloured vinyl. First up was the purchase of The Gaslight Anthem’s “Handwritten” LP. Available in electric blue 180gram vinyl……nice

Then, a trip to see the amazing Wintersleep at Bush Hall in London, was made even more amazing by the purchase of “Hello Hum” on 2x clear 180gram vinyl

Next up was the release of new Coheed & Cambria LP “The Afterman: Ascension” on none other than bright Orange vinyl.

Add to this lot, the farcical Beatles release (lucky enough to have both mispressed and corrected, but still with incorrect catalogue number) and the RHCP singles collection.

Then finally, the month was rounded off with the acquisition of Reuben’s 2004 masterpiece “Racecar is Racecar Backwards” – and whilst not presented on glorious rainbow colour vinyl (just boring black) – this is particularly nice to have as it was limited to 1,000 and fully signed by the band members.
