I found the Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” vinyl single (the promo version) at the Salvation Army today for a buck!

SB & I were gifted with Fiona Apple’s new album “The Idler Wheel…” on vinyl, plus the Deluxe CD/DVD package. It’s all gorgeous! The quality is impeccable & for the price, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t own both the deluxe edition & the vinyl.
Listening to the vinyl is such an experience - like lying on your floor as a teenager, completely immersed inside yourself, alone with the music; sound & thought swirling around you. Become a vinyl enthusiast! Interacting with your media is comforting. Purchase the Vinyl.
The Deluxe edition is a necessary addition to a collection. The CD comes tucked inside an achingly beautiful 5.5” x 7.5” 40-page booklet of Fiona’s hand-written lyrics, drawings & sketches. It makes experiencing this intimate emotional album an even more visceral experience. With an album that induces such intense feelings, it’s soothing to have something tactile to hold while listening. Purchase the Deluxe Version, which also includes 2 photographs, a fold-out album poster, a code for a digital download & a bonus DVD containing footage of Fiona performing five songs live from her first tour in 5 years, shot at SXSW/Austin in March 2012.
We were invited by Sony Music to a pre-release listening party for Fiona Apple’s new album last week, but it was on the other side of Canada so we couldn’t attend. They were kind enough, however, to send us the album (which we are totally OBSESSED WITH) on vinyl (which you can see more of here) and the Deluxe CD. They are both so beautifully packaged and have such so much to take in. The CD comes in a 5.5” x 7.5” 40-page book filled with Fiona’s lyrics, drawings and sketches, along with 2 personal photographs and a fold-out album poster as well as a bonus DVD contains footage of Fiona performing five songs live from her first tour in 5 years, shot at SXSW/Austin in March of this year.
