Vinyl love: Blur “The magic whip”

(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.)

Artist: Blur
Album Title: The magic whip
Year released: 2015
Details: Black vinyl, 2 x LP, Gatefold sleeve, OBI strip, poster

The skinny: Blur’s out-of-the-blue 8th album came about by accident and was only ever released because of how good the band felt about recording it and how great they felt the end product was. For me, it’s like an incredible bonus/hidden track at the end of your favourite album. Who knows if we’ll ever see another Blur album?

Standout track: “There are too many of us”

  1. I really like this album, but never picked up the LP (a mate gave me a CD copy) as I thought it was a bit pricey for a band I didn’t love (it was £30 or so). However, looking at those pics it looks like I may need to reassess my stance!
