The BCPF and I did a lot of running around yesterday. We had grocery shopping to do for the last day of our “French” cooking trip, getting proper cooking and storage vessels for said cooking trip, getting lunch, all of that. But, of course, we got our Underdog Records fix in. Here’s the haul:
Joni Mitchell – Early Joni – 1963 — The First known Recording of Joni Mitchell. Previously Unreleased. 19-Year-old Mitchell at CFQC AM in Saskatoon, 1963. She sounds very young here. Because she was. Again, she was 19. Sealed, NM.
The Beatles – The Beatles And Esher Demos — 50th anniversary 4×LP edition comes in a lift-top box which comprises of: ‘The Beatles’ album newly remastered (half speed mastering) by Giles Martin sourced directly from the original four-track and eight-track session tapes. The album comes in a gatefold sleeve with reproduction of original artwork with embossed “The Beatles” logo and four portrait prints of John, Paul, George and Ringo. ‘Esher Demos’ in gatefold sleeve with embossed “The Beatles” logo and ‘Esher Demos’ printed on lower left. A 12″×24″ four-page booklet with articles by Paul McCartney, Giles Martin & Kevin Howlett. A 24″×36″ fold-out poster with photos of the band members on the front and song lyrics on the back. This was still sealed and would sell for about $80-90 new retail. This is technically new and never opened. NM.
Hiss Golden Messenger – Lateness Of Dancers — Recorded by Scott Hirsch at Down Yonder Farms, Hillsborough (through the generosity of Peter Kramer and Susan Gladin) and Sound Pure, Durham, North Carolina. Additional recordings by Brian Haran and The Pinebox in Graham, NC and Chris Boerner on Murray Avenue, Durham, NC. That’s from Discogs. What I know about this album — all I need to know about this album — it’s on Merge Records. The BCPF loves just about everything on that label. They’re based in Durham, so… New.
Underdog Records was sort of under a weird Pluto in Retrograde kind of cloud this week. A car hit the side of the building at full speed, another hit a pole below the store, and yet another hit a pole above the store. But, it was a good day in the store. He’s got new stuff out, great used stuff out, and equipment! Visit the website to shop new vinyl, 24/7/365. Follow Underdog Records on Instagram and Facebook to see what new goodies Jonathan just acquired and is offering to you for purchase! Use Discogs to track your collection and share the collection with your friends. See what they have in their record collections, too.
Until tomorrow, keep spinnin’…
“Creme tangerine and Montelimar. A ginger sling with a pineapple heart. Coffee dessert, yes, you know it’s good news. But you’ll have to have them all pulled out after the Savoy truffle.” – “Savoy Truffle” (Harrison)
