Record Store Day 2012

I seem to have developed a pattern of blog posts with incremental numbers, but why?
Maybe predictably the posts with the longest cycle have the most resonance, and so its 2012 and it was record store day a week or three ago….. as if I need any encouragement to go buy vinyl!
But it is a very accurate reflection on my current workload that weeks after the date I actually have a few hours off one evening to have a listen to this years vinyl gems.. So here they are…
