RSD2017 Update 4 – 12″ Singles/ EPs

Now for the 12″ single and EP releases from the day starting with the one that I was most looking forward to (and that was before I realised the rest of the track listing):

Placebo/ David Bowie – Without You I’m Nothing: 12″ picture disc with the band and Bowie on one side and a birds eye view of NYC on the flip. Housed in a die cut sleeve and featuring not only the Standard version, but the two remixes that were only previously available (in vinyl format that is) on a Promo 12″.

The Chemical Brothers – C.H.E.M.I.C.A.L: Black 12″ with rear etching of the track title and two fancy pants lightning bolts.

Son’z of a Loop Da Loop Era: Far Out: Transparent 12″ with red smoke flash housed in traditional Surburban Base Records generic sleeve.

Pauw/ Mystery Jets – Split 12″: Black 12″ featuring boths bands playing Bubblegum (Mystery Jets) and High Tide (Pauw).

Goldie feat. Diane Charlemagne – Inner City Life (2017 Rebuild): Black 12″ featuring an updated version of the classic track for 2017 as well as a new exclusive Burial Remix on the flip side.

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

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:

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:
