The Vinyl Vault - August 25, 2020

I hope all of you are doing OK in this hot and uncertain weather.  2020 has definitely been a barn burner of a year on so many levels.  It is now hot and muggy in DC.  I'm sitting outside to get a change of scenery and melting lightly in the shade.  

I tend to be a pretty restless person and have generally traveled at least once by this time of year. My restlessness is sneaking its way into other avenues.  By the show tomorrow, I will be sporting some colorful hair.  Working in a pretty conservative industry, I can only get away with it because I am currently working from home.  Luckily I will be able to conceal it for any video conferences.  It will be fun at the record store, though!

This week I added the newest Bright Eyes album, "Down In The Weeds, Where The World Once Was," to The Vinyl Vault in addition to the reissue of PJ Harvey's amazing 1993 album "Rid of Me."  The first drop for Record Store Day is this Saturday, so I hope you have set aside a little budget for some of the great RSD releases.  

Get ready for another fun eclectic mix of music as a brief respite from the day to day strangeness of 2020.  Unplug from the day and plug into some good tunes.  Enjoy!! - JC
