My Record Shop Day Purchases #1
I never made it as far as a Record Shop (as opposed to Record Store) yesterday.
I didn't fancy getting up at the crack of dawn on a day off work. Also there weren't really any releases that I was particularly desperate to acquire although I wouldn't have minded the special edition version of Future Echoes by The Pictish Trail.
Also I had to go to the barbers and the grass needed cut.
I did however make some purchases as I popped into a charity shop on my way back from the barbers and came away with 3 CDs for a total outlay of £1.50.
Here is the first one The Shepherd's Dog the third studio album from 2007 by Iron and Wine. I was quite chuffed to see this (with a £16 sticker on the front cover) as the only other thing I have from Sam Beam and his band is a burn of the previous album Our Endless Numbered Days with the Sea & Rhythm EP thrown in for good measure.
I'm impressed on first listen and fully expect it to become a grower.
The other two to follow in due course.
Iron and Wine - Resurrection Fern
Iron and Wine - Flightless Bird, American Mouth
