A signed copy of Steve Jansen’s ‘Slope’

I already have this album, I got it when it first came out, but when I heard that Steve Jansen was selling off the last remaining stock and signing them I thought I ought to buy it again. It’s always lovely to have a signed copy of things and this album especially so.

I hope he releases some more stuff from Bandcamp in the not too distant future.

I know I only posted this recently, but as it is Cassette Store day today I thought I would post it again. This is a beautifully made and packaged cassette. I also love the music too, which makes it even better.

Bill Nelson’s Getting the Holy Ghost Across … the tape!

I already have this album, on vinyl and on CD, but the tape has something special about it, and it isn’t just that it was the format that I bought this album on for the first time. No, it’s something different.

With the original tape was a lyric list that came with it, printed on the same sort of paper that bibles are printed with. It was a lovely touch and in keeping with the whole album, so when I saw it come up on eBay I knew it was something I wanted to own again just for old times sake.
