December 2018 Vinyl Me, Please Review
The December 2018 Vinyl Me, Please Subscription Box features the self-titled album from Mavis Staples.
Vinyl Me, Please has recently condensed the presentation a bit – now it all revolves around the LP – and I think it’s better. Right on the gatefold, you’ll be able to read about the artist while still getting that cocktail recipe.
As always, it’s also accompanied by an LP-size piece of artwork.
How beautiful and retro looking is this pressing? So great!
The album itself is just fire from front to back. So good. Liz and I still love all things Motown and this album just rolls right through, front-to-back – plus, everyone loves ‘Son of a Preacher Man’, right?
Verdict: The album, pressing, and presentation were all top notch this month. This is a great subscription for vinyl collectors – or even someone new to the vinyl world. It’s nice to revisit old masterpieces that I haven’t listened to in quite a bit, or discover something new that I probably should have already known – you get a little bit of both from month-to-month.
