RSD & Me

An initial flick through this years Record Store Day release list didn't seem to reveal that much of interest, so how did I end with my biggest RSD haul?

Anyway here's what I went for:
The Kings of Convenience - Welcome reissue of their first 3 LPs, which usually go for £50+.
3 Groovy Soundtracks:
Dr. Who & The Daleks / Daleks Invasion Earth - The Barry Gray tracks are probably the highlight here.
Stelvio Cipriani - Deviation. Clear vinyl Italian giallo soundtrack.
Piero Umiliani - La Legge Dei Gangsters - Nice varied 2xLP set.

John Renbourn - The Attic Tapes - Sadly less than essential archive release.
The Zombies - Mid Sixties compilation with bonus tracks
The Idle Race - The Idle Race - 2nd album from this mob and Jeff Lynnes swansong.
Nuggets - Hallucinations - Excellent vinyl debut for these US pysche nuggets.

Matthew Sweet - Goodfriend - Vinyl debut for this classic power pop collection of demos and live tracks.
Charles Rumback & Ryley Walker - Cannots, 5 guitar based improvisations - much better than that makes it sound.
Richmond Fontaine - Yellow vinyl issue of the latest from Willy Vlautin & Co.
Emmylou Harris - Wrecking Ball. Heavyweight triple LP of the original album plus 3 sides of bonus material.

And some 45s to round things off - less than usual this year I think.
Gerhard Heinz - Schamlos - More groovy German Sexploitation.
Jean Claude Vannier - L'enfant au Royaume des Muche. Alternative versions of tracks from the L'enfant Assassin Des Mouches album.
Shirley Collins - English Songs Volume 2 / Trembling Bells - Who Call the Law
A nice complementary pair to finish with.

There are still a few things in the RSD box I have my eye on, but that's quite enough for the moment.
