(Vinyl Love is a series of posts that quite simply lists, describes, and displays the pieces in my growing vinyl collection. You can bet that each record was given a spin during the drafting of each corresponding post.)
Album Title: Leisure
Year released: 1991
Year reissued: 2012
Details: 1 of 7 in Blur 21, anniversary box set, black vinyl, 180 gram
The skinny: The debut album by Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon, Alex James, and Dave Rowntree, also known as Blur. It’s a bit messy, not knowing whether to lean towards baggy or shoegaze, two sounds that were both on their way out. Still, some fantastic tracks here.
Standout track: “There’s no other way”
