#101921 Hey friends

It's my birthday next Friday... but we don't need to talk about that.

My wife is looking for suggestions and I'd love a new record, given my recent poverty in that area.

I'd like to give her 3 suggestions, ideally only available on vinyl, or including download so I don't need to double dip. Also under £30 and capable of being delivered before next Friday. 'Recent' purchases include:

Escape from LA
Jaws
Alien
Wind River
The Thing
John Carpenter Anthology
Twin Peaks (all of them)
Stranger Things 2

Your suggestions are very welcome.

#101922 Happy birthday Chief.

Sorry, mis-read that earlier - like ScoJo below my most recent order is that Finders Keepers Jean Rollin comp (along with their recent-ish Suzanne Ciani Globolinks LP). :)

Also, a wife willing to feed your vinyl habit rather than admonish it? Sounds like a keeper!

Hey Chief!

Ahh, your upcoming holy of holies...great stuff, and nice idea to prod us for ideas.

My first rec is THE B-MUSIC OF JEAN ROLLIN on Finders Keepers, stunning collection of weird jazz n psyche n beyond which is a good price.

Second - I didn't think that this reissue was an essential purchase for me, having the OG...but treated myself at xmas and the Waxwork EXORCIST release is flipping incredible.

#101924 I think both Black Mirror releases from Invada would be good presents. San Junipero from Clint Mansell or Men Against Fire from Salisbury & Barrow. I don't see anything too jazzy in your list of recent purchases so I don't know if you're into that, but I'd recommend Himmel Og Helvete from Egil Monn Iversen. That's one great jazzy Norwegian soundtrack. Also, something from Finders Keepers could be good. Like, their soundtrack to Belladonna, or the Moomins. I have to check out the Jean Rollin compilation but I think Scojo's recommendation is probably a good one.

#101944 Hey Chief, Looking at what you purchased recently and if you would like to receive a "classic" for your special day maybe "Hellraiser" (DW black vinyl or the Lakeshore release should be available and within budget) or the recent re-release of "Rosemary's Baby" by WW . Or "Christine" from Varese which has been quite hard to find before.
Have not heard the Jean Rollin comp yet but can second "Himmel Og Helvete" if you would like something jazzy.

#101958 Thanks for the suggestions. My initial list from my own thoughts was: San Junipero, Men Against Fire, Free Fire (Invada on point recently), Blade Runner 2049, the Vault of Horror -
the Italian Connection comp, The Night Evelyn Came Out of the Grave and A Ghost Story.

I think I'll keep San Junipero on the list, and add the Jean Rollin comp and Belladonna (Finders Keepers ever-reliable) and Himmel Og Helvete (I'm intrigued by this rec - if I don't receive this I'll be buying it anyway).

Christine is a solid recommendation, which would probably be my no1 if I didn't already have it on CD. Moomins was a big discovery for me last year after a @ScoJo recommendation.

Feel free to still chip in with more, I'm not strict on it being only 3. I'll probably include the Vault comp too.

PS @spun my Mrs only the other day said she HATES that I listen to vinyl, but it turns out she hates thinking of presents after 18 years more!

#102254 Well Mrs "Brody" delivered. Thanks for the suggestions. With a bit of birthday money I'll pick up one or two others. Apologies for the double-post, I'll put these in new arrivals too.

#102486 Gents!

Been listening to Belladonna. Wonderful stuff.

I was sure it was meant to come with a download, but nothing with the record. It seems like it you buy it from FK, bleep or boomkat you get a download - where did Mrs Brody buy it? JUNO. No dice.

Anyone able to help a brother out? PM me.
