Vinyl love: Doves “The last broadcast”

(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: Doves
Album Title: The last broadcast
Year released: 2002
Year reissued: 2019
Details: Limited edition, reissue, 2 x 180 gram, orange vinyl, numbered 0177

The skinny: My first words of the year on this blog was care of a post counting down my top 5 Doves tunes. I was fresh off the excitement generated the previous month that one of my all-time favourite bands was putting an end to their hiatus and getting back to performing live. Back in January, we didn’t know if this meant anything more but the success of the first spate of live shows and the interest generated with the buying public has got them talking and working on new material. And yes, they have reissued their first three albums as 180 gram, double LP, numbered, and coloured vinyl. You can be sure I jumped on those pre-orders as soon as they became available and now I’ve got them in my grubby hands. Their sophomore album, “The last broadcast”, is my favourite of all their albums (though the debut is a very close second) so it had to be the one to first hit my turntable on Friday and yes… once again this morning. Can’t wait to spin the others…

Standout track: “There goes the fear”
