Shellac + Vinyl = CD

I got Shellac’s new album, Excellent Italian Greyhound, today, in vinyl, of course.

 Excellent Italian Greyhound

I’m listening to it for the first time, as I type, but so far I can already say it meets expectations…

When unpacking the album, I discovered a CD in the packaging which contains the album, in addition to the high quality vinyl. It’s not mentioned on the cover anywhere and there’s no label on the CD, so it’s a really pleasant surprise. Most of all it provides a hassle free (and legal) way to have the album on the ipod.

There is no real reason, not to buy the vinyl version, even if you don’t have a turntable, as you get the CD anyway and you get to enjoy the wonderful artwork in the original size…
