Vinyl love: James “Seven”

(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: James
Album Title: Seven
Year released: 1992
Year reissued: 2017
Details: Double LP, Black vinyl, 180 gram

The skinny: On their fourth album, James followed their breakthrough with more of what made the previous album so successful, albeit with a bigger palette. Not my favourite album of theirs by a long shot, falling off a bit after the first three tracks, but they are some incredible tracks indeed.

Standout track: “Ring the bells”

I didn’t realize the reissue was on two records. I have the original on single vinyl. Maybe they remastered on to two to improve the quality. I notice it’s on 180 gram so it should be better. Have you noticed that the spindle holes on some reissues is really tight to place on the deck? Not sure, maybe it’s my deck.

All these James reissues were double LP 180 gram. Pretty sweet and worth the pennies I spent.

Also, have found something spindle holes a bit tight. Blur’s “The great escape” comes to mind right away but I’m sure there are others.

These are guys are possibly one of my all time favourite bands. Their live show is exhilarating. However, I can certainly understand that they are not everyone’s cup of tea.
