RECORD STORE DAY REISSUE ALBUM WITH ALL UNRELEASED TRACKS FROM NUMERO GROUP + OTHERS…
Record store day is almost upon us, and no one is a bigger supporter of record stores than the labels who rely on vinyl fanatics to go and search out their releases. With this in mind, some of the most impressive names in vinyl releases and reissues have put together an incredible new vinyl-only compilation of unreleased tracks, appropriately titled This LP Crashes Hard Drives.
Numero is joined on this release by also-stellar labels Now Again, Daptone, Light In The Attic, Timmion, Jazzman, Honest Jons, Finders Keepers, Sublime Frequencies, and Vampi Soul. From the Western Sahara to the West Side of Chicago, from mod rock to modern soul, this compilation is packed with amazing rarities. Pressed on the highest quality vinyl and released in a gatefold LP with one half stuffed with special promo items from all ten labels (CD samplers / stickers / promos / etc), this is a collector’s item in every sense of the term, a thank you nod from these labels to their fans and the stores that stock their releases.
