Things I Kept in Record Sleeves (part 1)

There was a time when I used to regularly store important information about bands in one of their their record sleeves - lyrics, song info, correct tracklisting, discographies, want lists, my own "best of" lists, in fact anything that I thought I might need to refer to at some point in the future.

The ease of accessing this information nowadays has pretty much put paid to that and a lot of this information has slowly vanished from inside the record sleeves over the years.

However, it was refreshing to find this inside the sleeve for Chumbawamba's single "I Never Gave Up" - a full band discography, taken from the early days of the internet and printed on continuous printer paper.

A week of Nick Cave

As you can see, I'm up to the letter 'C' with my pledge to justify my record collection. That means a week of listening to Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. None of these albums are going anywhere.
I'm almost halfway through and already the mortality rate is quite high. And that's before I listen to Murder Ballads.

Science Fiction/Science Fact

Calexico Collection

The sun is out and so are my Calexico records. I sometimes forget how much I love their music. 
I just need to fill in the gaps with vinyl copies of their tour only albums.
