My good lady wife decided to buy me some records, I’m still not sure why, if there is an ulterior motive I’m sure it will reveal itself soon. Essentially I was in the rather nice position to be let loose in a record store and she would pay for whatever I picked up, to a certain monetary limit, which was £60.
Well, I thought I’d take the opportunity, which is very much a rarity, to try some new things and to look for bargains. I’ve been looking at ‘The Belly Of The Tarantula’ soundtrack for weeks, but it’s £32 so, while it was something I really wanted, I left it.
The first thing I picked up was ‘Into The Wide’ by Delta Spirit. I’ve never heard of them to be honest, however, what I held in my hands was a double vinyl in a gatefold die cut sleeve, and the vinyl was white. This made it very tempting, even more so because it was £5. It must have cost more than that to actually make it. So I chose it. As an object it really is a lovely thing. I’ve only listened to one side of one disc as yet but I definitely got my £5 worth:
|A2||From Now On|
|B2||Hold My End Up|
|B3||Into The Wide|
|C1||Language Of The Dead
|C2||For My Enemy
Running Total: £5.00
