Recently-Acquired Vinyl LP of the Day #5: The Go-Betweens 1978-1990
Mention yesterday, in closing, of ‘another project’ has today suggested that one such might be, finally, to document the vinyl LPs that have been acquired over the course of the relatively recent timespan of the last 10-11 months, since when such a nascent feature of the blog had drifted quietly into hibernation…
Thus, to reactivate proceedings, we present a collection never previously owned on vinyl, or indeed in any other form, the gatefold-sleeved double LP set ‘The Go-Betweens 1978-1990’, a well-chosen & delightful compendium of that very wonderful & much-treasured band’s tunes selected from each of their albums from ‘Send Me a Lullaby’ to ’16 Lover’s Lane’, also including single A- & B-sides & more besides, not least some previously unreleased & not heard, of course another essential addition to the record collection, as it should be to everyone’s with ears, a heart & a soul.
Soon, of course, it will be, already, the 9th anniversary of Grant McLennan’s untimely early death, as remarked upon here.
