SWEETHEART OF THE RODEO ON SUNDAZED VINYL!

COMING IN FEBRUARY ON SUNDAZED VINYL

Sweetheart of the Rodeo will forever be revered as the Byrds' 1968 album that opened the eyes of the hip and the young to country music. Whether it was the first country-rock album doesn't really matter: It was certainly the best and most heartfelt such excursion and paved the way for fabled combos the Flying Burrito Bros. and Poco yet to come. Sweetheart featured the first extensive lineup change for the Byrds, as Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman said goodbye to David Crosby, Gene Clark and Michael Clarke and welcomed former International Submarine Band leader Gram Parsons into the fold. With his magical voice and bona fide country pedigree, Parsons helped unleash a style that had already begun to seep into the Byrds' sound. And now Sundazed makes available a perfect replica of the original vinyl release of the ever-enduring Sweetheart of the Rodeo. To order go to:

Coldplay 7″ vinyl box set

We're pleased to announce that, for the first time, all 14 of Coldplay's singles are to be collected together in a box set. 'The Singles 1999-2006' will be released internationally on March 26th.

Each single will be pressed on heavyweight 7-inch vinyl and sleeved in its original artwork. The box set will contain five singles which have never previously appeared on 7-inch vinyl. They include 'The Blue Room EP', Coldplay's rare first release for Parlophone in October 1999, which has been split into two 7-inch singles. The box set will also feature the international singles, 'Don't Panic', 'God Put A Smile Upon Your Face' and 'What If', none of which were released in the UK. It will also include 'The Hardest Part', which was previously only available as a download in the UK.

Please note that this collection will only be released as a 7-inch vinyl box set, there will not be a CD release. For full track details, please go to www.coldplay.com

Portable record Players

The other day i saw this in HMV.

It looked kind of cool and I might get one. It reminded me of these

What a cool name, the Sound Burger! 🙂

and this classic in car player from Philips. Only 45rpm singles mind!

I'd say that doesn't skip.

Having a look around the web there's a surprising array of funky record players available out there. Modern models. They look old but are really a cheap and tacky plastic. Usually anyway.

Anyone know of any other interesting turntables?? 🙂
