Record Store Day happened twice this year, once in April (missed it) and on Black Friday (also missed it). Each time I thought I would go, but in the end didn’t end up at a local vinyl shop.
Once again my friend Otis DID go. Also once again he sent me a gift that he picked up there! He picked this up for me.
“Reverend Horton Heat – It’s A Rave-Up b/w Beer, Write This Song”
This is an exclusive Record Store Day pressing on red vinyl.
These are unreleased songs specifically released on Record Store Day on 7″. Sweet.
I played them on the TMR slipmat. As any Reverend Horton Heat song is… these songs are awesome. I have seen The Rev twice now. Each time I am amazed at 2 things.
- This guy can PLAY. Man is he good.
- His voice is strong and you can tell he cares about the sound and the music.
Before I looked up these songs I thought that they must be older tracks, his voice sounds as crisp and young as on his first albums.
Red vinyl on spinning yellow and black slipmat. A thing of beauty.
A big thank you to Otis.
Record Store Day 2016! You and me. Be there. For thee I swear.
