Eeeeeeeeeep! This month’s album is “Odelay” by Beck! I am so excited! This was one of my favorite records in the 90’s, and it sounds just as amazing today as it did back then! Of course, I already have this on vinyl, but this is an exclusive pressing for Vinyl Me, Please. I couldn’t be more thrilled!

The album itself came with this insert of the liner notes.

Check out this beautiful blood red vinyl! I love that VMP always sends gorgeous colored vinyl!

This is the artwork for the month. I like it! It’s very mod, and quite different from the usual art VMP sends. The artist is Scott Hill.

On the inside of the packaging is a history of the artist and record by VMP co-founder, Tyler Barstow. It’s really informative, and I think it adds to the subscription for me, personally.

The cocktail this month is the Vesper, which is a really pretty drink. I am not a fan of gin, but my husband loves it, so he thought this was delicious!

This is a flyer for VMP’s member store that was included this month.

Verdict: This month was a super special hit for me with Vinyl Me, Please! I am so happy to have a special pressing of this seminal work from Beck. The artwork was great, too! I am a long standing fan of Vinyl Me, Please!

So far this is the Beck albulm is the only Vinyl Me record I would have bought outright. With peoples’ musical tastes varying so much it is ridiculous they don’t give you any control over your choices. November’s Lemon of Pink was the last straw. I am cancelling my subscription and looking for a different service.

I am so going to gift my brother a sub to this for Christmas! Wish I’d been able to start it for this, Odelay is magic (but not so excited about the Nov. offering, so just as well I held off). Thanks for the reviews, they’ve helped me with the decision.

Funnnn! You’re welcome!
