(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: Lowest of the Low
Album Title: Thrifty thrifty thrifty
Year released: 2018
Details: Black vinyl, part of five album box set, autographed and limited to 300 copies, (box set includes booklet, lyrics sheets, poster, and stickers)
The skinny: For the final instalment in this series on Lowest of the Low’s “Shakespeare… my box” vinyl box set, I present the only album in the collection that I had yet to hear before this week. “Thrifty thrifty thrifty” is the bonus disc of b-sides, live tracks, and rarities that was specifically put together for the set and isn’t available anywhere on its own. I didn’t listen to this record back when I first got the set and really, don’t think I’ll listen to it all that often, but still, really enjoyed giving it a spin. There’s some stuff on there I’d never heard before, which is saying a lot for a fan like me. And I really love the cover artwork, which for those not in the know, features some iconic and long-shutdown Toronto music shops.
Standout track: “New westminster taxi squad”
