Some long overdue vinyl releases are on their way.
After releasing some much sought after records by Elliot Smith, Plain Recordings are about to release the classic Its a shame about Ray by the Lemonheads.
Wilco, one of the best bands of modern time are about to see their early catalogue released on vinyl. AM, Being there and Summerteeth are all going to be re-released by Nonesuch in the coming months. Summerteeth is the real gem here aslike many mid 90s albums it only saw a very limited release on vinyl.
And Fat Cat are to release DMM copies of () and Agaetis Byrjun by Sigur Ros, recently released in a stupendously overpriced limited edition box book thingy.
Now all we need are the folowing albums to be released on vinyl (again)
The Flaming Lips – Soft Bulletin
Emmylou Harris – Wrecking ball
Lucinda Williams – Car wheels on a gravel road
Spiritualized – Ladies and gentlemen, we are floating in space
