Just when you thought the record companies had exhausted every avenue to get you to hand over more of your hard earned cash for an album you already own, they pull you back in. Capitol/EMI has just announced a string of audiophile quality vinyl reissues from Coldplay, Radiohead, The Steve Miller Band and A Perfect Circle (who?). Read more about the reissues below:
On August 19, Capitol/EMI will launch a high quality vinyl campaign in the U.S. with the release of eight classic titles “From The Capitol Vaults,” all of which were previously out-of-print on vinyl. Six of the newly remastered, limited edition albums are presented on 180-gram LPs, while two albums initially released as double 10″ 140-gram LPs will be reissued in their original configuration. All of the “From The Capitol Vaults” vinyl packages feature carefully replicated artwork and packaging true to their original single or gatefold jacket LP releases.

Because I couldn’t really make an announcement like this without giving something away, I am in fact, giving something away. One lucky person who emails me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tells me what their favorite Radiohead record is and why will receive a copy of the Best of Radiohead 4LP Box Set (Vinyl Edition).
