Spins On Vinyl




The limited-edition vinyl release of The Rolling Stones Beggars Banquet 50th Anniversary Deluxe LP set features a gatefold jacket, 180-gram stereo vinyl, a bonus vinyl 12" "Sympathy For the Devil" single in mono (backed with an etching of the original release's "toilet" cover), and a replica of the Japanese bonus flexi disc featuring a 1968 phone interview with Mick Jagger is also included. This edition is wrapped in the "RSVP" cover art.  How is that for music fans, especially Stones enthusiast? It is quite a beautiful package to enjoy.READ MORE





Legends Of The Desert- 12" is classic stoner rock captured on limited edition azure blue vinyl and various other colors.  The vinyl is beautiful and if your favorite color happens to be blue your eyes will be smiling.  The colorful art work of the LP cover is eye-catching as well. Maybe that may not be a relevant aspect of music for some people however I look at the entire package and enjoy it to the fullest.

They are a powerful trio from Sweden that is highly influenced by 60s and 70s Blues Rock bands. And man do they ever make some noise! The two tracks on this 7” inch Beige and black swirl vinyl are killer examples of what kind of punch this band can pack. READ MORE





Electric Light Orchestra, better known as ELO for brevity purposes, has a large body of work dating back to the 70s. The first album I ever bought was Eldorado. I remember how different that album sounded the first time I heard it. At that time, I enjoyed it but not as much as I do now. With the passing of time, great music reaches a different level as heard through the ears of a more mature listener (like everything it is a matter of time). READ MORE


Mount Atlas hails from Germany which is the home of their label H42 Records. This is their debut and is it ever a good one!
 
I was fortunate to receive 1 of 50 copies of this self-titled red vinyl. This is some bone-crunching hard rock, metal, stoner rock that will get the blood pumping. Check out the colorful artwork on the cover, very cool. That element gives the package an artistic flair that some releases just don’t have. I really appreciate it. READ MORE



It was 17 years ago when I was introduced to The Damnation of Adam Blessing and their guitar player Jim Quinn. At that time their albums were reissued on the now defunct Akarma Records label. I remember how much I loved their sound. Little did I know that 17 years later I would be listening to the same music remastered from the original source tapes from the UMG vaults.READ MORE



Royal Architect released their debut Et In Arcadia Ego in August last year. The band is led by Matthew Graboski (guitars/pianos/vocalist). His musical history runs deep with the band OHO, who have several releases to their credit. While OHO is hailed as Baltimore's answer to Pink Floyd on the band's website, the latest band has yet to form an identity.READ MORE

Thanks to record store day that has changed the playing field for collectors and music lovers considerably.
