Artist: Gentleman. Record: Journey to Jah.
"I‘m neither a reggae addict nor a big fan of this artist. But “Journey To Jah“ by Gentleman will always be one of the most important albums for me. When it was released, I was about 15 or 16 years old and a very exciting time of my life started. I will always remember that amazing party at a friends‘ house, where I heard this music for the first time. Whenever I play it, it takes me back to that special night and that whole magic summer (as you can imagine, a lot of parties followed...).
There is no other album that symbolizes a live section of mine in that way.
It was almost impossible to get the sold out vinyl version until it was reissued a few years ago. Guess who pre-ordered it immediately!" @gentleman_official #gentleman#vinylchapters#vinylstories#loveofvinyl#rsd2018#vinylart#vinylnerd#vinylenthusiast Thanks to @ju_vinyl for the great vinyl chapter!
Keiji Haino + Sumac - American Dollar Bill - Keep Facing Sideways, You're Too Hideous To Look At Face On | 2XLP | 1st Press | Red Translucent | Thrill Jockey | // Certainly one of the strangest collaborations I’ve ever heard. Sumac are stretching out of their comfort zones while Keiji drops a dysfunctional improvised performance. It’s a listening experience that requires patience and attention. //
Spacemen 3 “Taking Drugs to make music to” has had a RSD reissue on berry coloured vinyl. Recorded by Jason Sonic Boom and Natty Brooker the band was just a trio. Pat bush and Jazz Butcher had seen some early shows and gave Spacemwen 3 £800 and 5 days to record this record. It took 3 days recording and 2 to mix the record. The sound is cutting and raw and very dark, your mum would not like this record. Early versions of classic songs can be found in demo format sounding very live and exciting, sound of confusion spacemens 3 first single can be found sounding much heavier than later recording which renamed walking with jesus.
Beastie Boys-Paul’s Boutique| “Like Sam the butcher bringing Alice the meat, Like Fred Flintstone, driving around with bald feet.Should I have another sip? Nah, skip it.” Straight up classic. Musically, the Beasties were ahead of their time. 🙌🏻🙌🏻
Enjoying my day off with a can of @frielscider and my @recordstoreday purchases I think the @benkweller debut album Sha Sha is my favourite. The original copies of this were selling on flea bay for an absolute fortune, when I got my hands on a reissue RSD copy I just got home looked at it and smiled. If you haven’t heard it I VERY highly recommend.

Snagged one of the few remaining cream variants. The import fee wasn’t too bad, but I am a little bummed I could have just got one from @vinylmeplease. Oh well, glad to be supporting an artist directly. Now hopefully she’ll do a return to the states and play somewhere near me 😍
I’m never hoping to find original presses of early Danzig or any Samhain records, but a decent boot or a nice repress of November Coming Fire would be great. This sounds great and I’m happy to hear this on wax ⚪️
