By Post: Jack tribute CDx2 & Bob’s Distortion LPx7

Recently by post:

Jack Kerouac “kicks joy darkness” double CD. All songs/spiels about/dedicated to Jack by various artists. ¥401 delivered.

An assortment of “popular music artists“ with songs inspired by, and about, Jack… Will give you a better rundown later.

And, Bob Mould seven (!) Vinyl box set… You may know him from Hüsker Dü and/or Sugar or his various solo/ Trio/DJ projects – from Minneapolis to San Francisco to Berlin.

Includes one which is a 12 inch disc but runs at 45 RPM and has three songs on one side and blank on the other, plus a booklet of credits, lyrics, annotations and a blurb by J Mascis. Really a fantastically crafted box, that even “wishes“ when you pull one of their records out.

Has been on my list but a bit *too expensive* for this hippie poet until it showed up for ¥5000 ish / $47 usd +/-, delivered.

There is also an earlier career box set as well as various Hüsker Dü compilations but as I say, “one revolution at a time”.

Whatcha think?
