Its Wishlist Wednesday time again, and this week it is a particular annoyance to most Vinyl Heads (or I would assume it is cos it narks me right off).
This week it’s Soulwax, and their 2 Many Djs series, which I have the above vinyl of.
The annoying thing is this is Part 2, of a massive set of double albums. Soulwax produce some truly amazing reworkings of popular songs, dance or otherwise.
There is a whole set of mash ups as recorded as part of Radio Soulwax which come under the 2 Many DJs label as the above. 15 at last count.
So, what’s the problem then? Is it too expensive a set- no, in fact, my Part 2 on double vinyl was bought quite easily from eBay for £20. So, no, they are cheap little slices of music to get hold of.
They are hard to come by for the simple reason that, for reasons only known to Soulwax, Part 2 is the only one of the 15 to be released on Vinyl.
How bloody irritating is that?
The first one you’d think would be a given on vinyl purely because the second one is. But it’s not. Its on MP3, it’s on CD, it’s on sodding Youtube.
I’m sure I can’t be the only Vinyl addict who has faced the conundrum of wanting a set of a certain release, only to find it’s on CD bar one of the series. Do you buy the vinyl then buy the CD? Do you buy them all on CD and never be happy that you missed out on a vinyl to add to the Expedit?
I don’t know what way to go on this as I always end up playing them on Youtube and thinking I’d love them all but then stalling down to the lack of vinyl release for the remaining 14.
At least with the Back to Mine series which I also covert, that is all on vinyl (but is sodding expensive).
Why would you bring one out on vinyl? Its so flipping annoying!
I’m off to lie down in a darkened room.
