July 2018 Vinyl Me, Please Review
The July selection was the album Silver Bullets from The Silvertones.
Each delivery comes with a cocktail mix to accompany the music.
It’s also accompanied by an LP-size piece of artwork. This month’s artwork comes from Kit Agar.
The Silvertones – Silver Bullets
This is an exclusive remaster and pressing of the album – and how beautiful is that pressing!
It comes with full liner notes.
The call this a ‘vanilla sky’ pressing – and I think it’s one of the best-looking pressings that they’ve.
The album itself sounds like an early reggae sound. As someone who isn’t a fan of the genre, it wasn’t a favorite of mine. Even though that’s the case, I always enjoy giving something a chance on my turntable!
Verdict: While this month was a miss for me – it truly only feels like one miss per year for me – and with the ability to swap and see what’s coming for the month, you can always avoid a record outside of your preferred genres.
