Vinyl Picks: Helping Build Your Collection, Three Records At A Time
Filed under: Vinyl Picks | Posted by:

Vinyl Picks: a weekly column were we recommend three vinyl records that every When You Awake reader should own. First up, we have the Flying Burrito Brother’s 1969 record The Gilded Palace of Sin. It features tunes like “Sin City”, “Christine’s Tune” and “Dark End of the Street”.  An absolute classic. The auction is set to end on October 17th and currently has zero bids at a $9.99 starting price. Click here to check it out.

Originally released in October 1979, Tom Petty’s Damn the Torpedoes is our next album of required listening. They are actually releasing a deluxe edition of the album on November 2, 2010 (on CD and Vinyl) if you want to wait it out, but with tunes like  like “Refugee”, “Here Comes My Girl” and “Don’t Do My Like That”,  the original will more than suffice. The auction is set to end on October 17th and currently has zero bids at a $1.99 starting price. Click here to check it out.

Lastly, we have The Zombies with Odyssey and Oracle. It’s features what I do believe is my favorite song of ALL TIME, “This Will Be Our Year.”  The record is available via Amazon starting at $16.15 new. Click here to check it out.

3 great choices as usual…makes me think I ought to clear the huge pile of cds off my old turntable and play some vinyl…I’ve amassed a lot of it since the mid-to-late ’60′s!…but life,work and general modern-day bullshit seems to have sucked time out of every fuckin’ day of the year…seems like there’s no time to sit down and dig 20-minute-per-side LPs any more…anyway,last night I went to see this band KASSIDY who took the time to swing their UK tour out to our isolated island town and I’d like to recommend them to you guys…I’d say they’re right up your alley and we gotta keep spreading the word about THE MUSIC…my wife and I had a great night,bought their 2nd. ep…1st. sold out,I think…and spoke to a couple of the guys after the show…the one that’s a ringer for Lowell George had a sore throat!…anyway,check their myspace…I think you’ll like…thanks,the blog is awesome!
