Sonic Youth - Dead Moon Rising
Recent re-master of Sonic Youth's classic album from 1985. I think this was the first album I bought of theirs, not when it first came out mind you, I'm old but not that old. The collaboration with Lydia Lunch on the last track "Death Valley 69" is easily one of my favorite Sonic Youth songs. This was done by ORG Music, the same folks that did the Nirvana vinyl reissues. They make some really amazing sounding vinyl, when you hear an audiophile pressing like this it's such a difference to some of the cheap paper thin vinyl some labels press. The orange 180 gram vinyl is limited to 200 copies. You can get it from Insound or the Sonic Youth webstore.
