A thread for forthcoming vinyl releases...

    A lot of the stuff in the Box Set is either material that was overlooked in the recent reissue program or was unreleased. The Mute reissues I've heard/bought are really very good, so are probably going to be better than a 30 - 40 year old LP unless you are very lucky to find one in minty condition. I've got all the original Factory and A&M LPs and singles in very decent condition. I have been very selective with the Mute reissues, focusing on the Rob's Records LPs, which were released while I lived in Australia and were unobtanium down there.

    In general, ACR LPs are not too expensive second hand so you might be able to save a bit by buying second hand.

    This may float yer boats, vinyl lovers


    The Elliot Galvin Trio. Recorded, mixed and cut direct to disk, this is a very good recording, very live and dynamic, no post production at all. Each side of the record is one continuous take, no edits or other tomfoolery.

    I don't have the vinyl, only the flac download as I don't have a gramophone to decode vinyl any more.

    (The blurb claims it's recorded "direct to vinyl" though I suspect it would be too arduous to reproduce the performance and record it every time someone orders the record...)

    What does cut direct to disc mean?

    Do they have several ( some ) cutting lathes going at once to do this ?

    I have never grasped the concept. ( bit thick )

    New Kate Rusby album out today. Website still says pre-order, but it’s on Tidal if you want a listen before buying.

    Is the new Mavis Staples a good one to get on vinyl?

    Instead of recording to tape or digital , engineer cuts directly to disc/lacquers
    major problems huge cost , no overdubs & one take live performance
    in the old days every record was done this way

    Norma Tanega's 1966 album 'Walkin' My Cat Named Dog' has recently been re-released on vinyl for t'1st time.
    It features the song 'Your Dead', which was the theme tune for 'What We Do In The Shadows' tv series.
    It's a cracker imo.

    If you needed any further encouragement, the record is bright green.

    :=) I couldn't resist buying the record, but it's not as bright green as Swamp Thing might desire.

    Let the people judge...

    Version 3

    Mea Culpa. Extremely foolish of me to try and humansplain bright green to Swamp Thing.

    Other greens are available...

    I'm now going to have to check my record collection for green vinyl. A couple of recent ones were green-ish, maybe an older David Sylvian and an Ozric Tentacles...
