Addicted To Vinyl Musical thoughts from the open road, with headphones on

22Mar/0973

Hey Cleveland! Here are the details for Record Store Day at Music Saves + Black Sabbath vinyl details + more!

I made my way over to Music Saves on Thursday night to pick up a couple of things: They had ordered Ready For The Flood per my request, the newish album from principal Jayhawks members Mark Olson and Gary Louris.

Ready For The Flood is the first new studio album from the duo since Olson's 1995 departure from the 'Hawks, and was produced by Chris Robinson of the Black Crowes. The album was released overseas late last year and finally got a U.S. release earlier this year via New West Records, who added a couple of bonus tracks to the U.S. release. One of those bonus tracks in particular would make Ready For The Flood worth the purchase alone, even if the rest of the disc was blank. "Precious Time" is a fan favorite originating on the "Mystery Demos" compilations from the 80s/90s that have been circulated in trading circles over the past few year, and now is finally available on Ready For The Flood. Hell yeah.

As for the album? Oh, it's fantastic. Hopefully you caught the pair on Letterman, and if you missed that, here's the video for your viewing pleasure. Olson/Louris are on the road right now as we speak, and just played a showcase at SXSW. Go catch 'em if they're in your neck of the woods....and when you see them, tell them to get their asses to Cleveland or anywhere in Ohio for a show!

PS - I've been telling everyone I know to pick up the Gary Louris solo album Vagabonds, also produced by Robinson and released last year. It's a great companion piece, and one of my favorite records from 2008.

I also picked up Oohs and Aahs from Say Hi (To Your Mom,) which came out a few weeks ago. The internet sez:

Written and recorded in the home studio of critically acclaimed Seattle via Brooklyn via los Angeles DIY icon Eric Elbogen, Oohs & Aahs is an extraordinary and consistently witty album of dimly lit indie rock fables that ponder many hues of gloom, lust and inevitability and beauty of imperfection. Even for fans of Elbogens past work, it's a marvel of modern post-pop.

Indeed. I took a listen to this one on the listening station at Music Saves, and was sucked in by the 80s-esque synths that are sprinkled throughout Oohs & Aahs. Additionally, I'm a sucker for one-man-band kinda things, and Say Hi certainly fills the bill on that one.

Fun fact: I was actually searching for something new with female vox to listen to, and came away with Say Hi instead. Those damn synthesizers will get me everytime.

Stop in at Music Saves and take a copy home for yourself.....tell 'em that Addicted to Vinyl sent you, and I'm sure they'll give you some sort of discount, and hopefully they'll give me a free Dr. Pepper. Or a picture with Vinyl the Cat. Or both.

Vinyl The Cat

Here is a song sample for your listening pleasure:

Say Hi - Maurine

If you want some good humor, read the "un-FAQ" on the Music Saves website. I like this one:

Do you guys have an indie rock section?

Someone actually asked this once after looking around for 20 minutes. We’re not sure what he meant by indie rock. We only have 2 sections: New and Used.

Lots of cool stuff on that list, although I'm bummed to hear that the Wilco vinyl reissues have been bumped to June. I guess that makes my day a little bit less expensive - count me in for that there Wilco live DVD!

Speaking of Vinyl:

On the heels of my recent update about the new album from Heaven & Hell (*cough* Black Sabbath *cough*) The Devil You Know, I discovered via the fine folks over at the Steve Hoffman music forums that all of the Dio-era Black Sabbath stuff has been freshly reissued on vinyl. Get your mitts on Heaven & Hell, Mob Rules, Live Evil, and Dehumanizer by clicking on the linkity-links (which benefit your friends here at Addicted to Vinyl) or visit your favorite local retailer.

It's nice to see that they are reasonably priced too, at 17 bucks a pop (Live Evil is 23 bucks, since that's a double disc affair.) Wish that more labels would get the memo on how cool that is!

More more more! A new record (we're talkin' vinyl here!) store for Cleveland!

The following details were also within the info-loaded chock-full-of-musical-nutrients-that-taste-better-than-Spam-from-the-local-7-11 newsletter from Music Saves:

BLUE ARROW RECORDS AND BOOKS OPENS ON MARCH 26, next THURSDAY, at 7pm!
Pete and Debbie, former owners of Renaissance Parlour and partners in This Way Out and damn cool folks, are opening this store right down the street from us, past Shoparooni, cross the side street, and it’s next to Low Life Gallery, in the building with the blue arrow on it!
They’ll feature quality used LPs, 45s, and 78s from the 1950’s to the present, in a range of musical styles. They’ll also have magazines, t-shirts, furniture, and other cool merchandise.
The floor is covered entirely with vintage album covers. IT – IS – AWESOME!
AND they have a stage that will be used for performances and DJ events! DJs will be spinning all day during the Waterloo Arts Fest on June 27th!
We couldn’t be more excited to have these guys join our little Waterloo family, and we hope you’ll show them some love by stopping in sometime soon!
FYI – WATERLOO WILL HAVE A TOTAL OF 3 RECORD STORES WHEN THIS PLACE OPENS! WELCOME TO CLEVELAND’S VINYL DISTRICT!

That's enough for now, right?
