Nirvana - Nevermind (30th Anniversary)

So I’m in the process of packing up stuff to move to the other end of Canada but I decided to pick up a record yesterday. Having recently purged a couple hundred records I knew if I got something it would be something I wouldn’t want to get rid of. Surprised it took me so long to get Nevermind on vinyl.

My latest purchase was the traditional purchase that I always make when visiting Athens: an R.E.M. vinyl selection at Wuxtry. This time it was the reissue of NEW ADVENTURES IN HI-FI. I’d already purchased the CD version of the reissue, but, wanted to make sure I had this one in the vinyl collection, too, since NAIHF is one of the most personally relevant albums in their catalog.

Due to current space limitations I’ve held off on purchasing a lot of new music not knowing what the future holds for my music collection as a whole (all of which is in storage except for a few recently purchased CD’s). However, I have several Amazon gift certificates I’ve accumulated over the past couple years that haven’t been cashed in. Living where I do now where there are no record stores (the closest are over an hour and a half away) and the big boxes don’t stock anything I listen to, I cashed them in. The main impetus was being unable to purchase the new albums from Drive-By Truckers and Angel Olsen. I could stream them but that’s not an option at the moment. Not all have arrived but most have.

I’m having space limitations too. A month ago I was almost about to purchase Steely Dan’s Greatest Hits, I haven’t listened to the Dan for a long time & now I wanted to. I forgot I already had that record. I found it stored in the garage.

I do that with books quite a lot!

It wasn’t until recent years that I accidentally bought a CD twice but it was only a couple. When CD’s started to fall of favor and could be found used for dirt cheap, I began purchasing more of them, mainly to rip to my computer to help build my music library. Now, I’m facing the reality of going completely digital and not just with music.

Khuruangbin - Mordechai

This thing of wonder arrived today after I caught their Glastonbury set on BBC over the weekend. Texan band I’d never heard of. Laid back guitar music at its most brilliant. Highly recommended to all.
