It comes with this little wrap around the spine of the LP. You’ll get a little note from the curator along with the drink recipe.

As always, it’s also accompanied by an LP-size piece of artwork. The January piece was designed by David McLeod.

The design of the packaging has the same feel as the album, to me – a bit of organized craziness.

This might go down as my favorite pressing from Vinyl Me, Please. This two-tone marble vinyl is really a showstopper for me.

I’ve never been a Flying Lotus fan – so I went in knowing what to expect and with the expectation that it might not be my cup of tea – that idea was pretty much confirmed, but it was still fun giving it a spin.

Verdict: I like using Vinyl Me, Please for two different reasons – revisiting an older album that I love and trying out albums I either have never heard of or listened to on a limited basis. This was definitely the latter, and while my mind wasn’t changed, I still enjoy sitting down and giving it a whirl – and that artwork! That artwork made up for a lot of negatives for me.

  1. Eric, how do you store your records? I just inherited a bunch of vinyl and have no idea how to keep them in decent condition. Heck, I need to buy a record player to see if they still play.

    Anyway, I agree that the pressing is beautiful. Is it wrong to want to hang it up instead of play it?
