My Record Shop Day Purchases #1

I never made it as far as a Record Shop (as opposed to Record Store) yesterday.
The reasons?
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


  1. My local record store was trying to entice me in. I didn't go, it's 160 km away.

  2. What a bloody marvellous purchase you made there CC.

  3. That sounds like a very pleasant day, CC. I mowed the lawn yesterday, and the feeling of the sun (yes, sun) on my face was wonderful.
