    I went into my local record store yesterday to see if they had "Cyboogie" {they didn't} and because I had obligations I couldn't thoroughly peruse the shop for something which piqued my interest but not my wallet {Ghibli soundtracks! What's Going On MoFi One-Steps!}. I was, however, in the shop just long enough to cross off one of those "get-it-if-I-see-it-but-otherwise-don't-go-out-of-your-way" things and added to the accidental drone collection. When the solar eclipse happened about a year-and-a-half ago, Nashville, and more specifically, Third Man Records, was in the Path of Totality. So they invited this guy who had built an analogue synthesizer with weather-sensitive apparatus to record how it interpreted the eclipse, this is that along with a freak hail storm in Las Vegas on the B-Side. Oh, and they had Revolver, Rubber Soul, and The White Album in Mono. I won't be able to go back there until Thursday but if they're still there I'll happily oblige anyone needing them here...

    Are the mono reissues the definitive pressings? I haven’t jumped on any of them yet but I may take you up on that offer

    Man, I'm so jealous for those Rosalía records. They are nearly impossible to find here in Mexico, and shipping from Europe is very expensive. I hope I can find them in my upcomming trip to Germany.

    Some new additions to my Sleep collection!

    IMG_20190210_150303.jpg

    Lucked out and found a sealed first pressing of DopeSmoker from one of my local record spots for a decent price. I also caved and turned to discogs for a sealed copy of the ridiculously pricey limited variant of Leagues Beneath. Definitely not proud of what I paid for that one, but such is the life of a record collector.

    Can't wait for that 4-LP live album from TMR!

    Came in from working out of town to some greats.

    Not only do they sound great and the gatefolds look outstanding, they were advertised as just a plain purple color and came in looking this damn beautiful.

    In terms of mix? YES although The White Album is largely preference. In terms of packaging/mastering? ALSO YES if we're referring to remasters. Short of getting perfect first-presses it's probably the best Beatles vinyl you'll find; AAA unlike the 2012 stereo and supposedly very close to originals.

    Even in Europe you can't find it everywhere. I think the record is only distributed in Spain. If you are staying in a hotel your best option is to have them shipped to you. I did that every time I went to the USA and never had any issue. Ask the reception prior to your arrival if it's a service they offer.

    Iceland is my favorite place. Went a few years ago and I want to go back so back. Such an amazing country, although EVERYTHING seemed to cost an arm and a leg!

    Been really excited for this one to arrive. I put the order in for Wayne Shorter and Sam Rivers, just need to find an affordable Cassandra Wilson now. Anyway:
