Vinyl love: Spirit Of The West “Go figure”

(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: Spirit Of The West
Album Title: Go figure
Year released: 1991
Details: Original German pressing, signed, numbered, includes a signed certificate from the band, recent band photo (also signed)

The skinny: This album was my first introduction to the band that I would grow to love and the CD copy I had of it followed me from high school into university and beyond. The Canadian folk rock group that spawned the alternate Canadian anthem, “Home for a rest”, ventured into alt-rock territory with “Go figure”, enlisting drummer Vince Ditrich to fill out their sound. (I’ve been dying to track down any of their albums for my vinyl collection so snapping this up from their website when they put it up for sale two weeks ago was a no-brainer.)

Standout track: “D for Democracy”
