Beautiful stuff! So many classics, wow.

For me, I bought:

http://cdn.antiquiet.com/wp-content/upl ... erhero.jpg

Faith No More - Superhero

I was really reluctant on this, since the b side is just a remix of the single, but they were my favorite band in the 90s, so I owe it to them.

Usually I hate remixes, but this isn't bad, it's not electronic, just a bit more keyboard heavy.

As for the single, it's a pretty good noise-rock/pop hybrid, but not quite on the stellar level of their heyday. Another thing is that the voice is mixed a bit too loud, so the music sounds a bit muted.

Ha! No way. Nowhere near as epic (wink, wink, nudge, nudge).

Actually, I'd love to get my hands on "Digging the Grave". The b-side "Absolute Zero" is as good as the best songs they've done.

Actually, I have two or three more singles they did, their version of Lionel Richie's "Easy" being one of them...I think "Evidence" was another song...What's with the "e" titles anyway???

Now, you need some records from Sandie Shaw, Dusty Springfield, and Adam Faith...So many great British stars out there...

Can - Spoon / Shikako Maru Ten

Made in Germany in 1971. I love this band and I was stoked to find this. Spoon is such a moody, contemplative song and the b side (which I'm hearing for the fist time as I type this) is even more laid back, yet still oh so very Can and so very krautrock.

I think I'm going to give it another spin. Cheers.

I bought my first 12' and I couldn't be happier with it.

I was hesitant at first, because, you know, I could get a full album of music instead, but this was too good to pass up, even if I do have the LP that this song comes from.


http://eil.com/images/main/Frankie-Goes ... -24499.jpg

Frankie Goes to Hollywood - Rage Hard.

Mine doesn't have a pop-up booklet that apparently was in the UK version, as I got a Japanese printing, but it comes with a neat obi strip with the lyrics and some information I can't read.

Listening to it is quite the experience, as a female voice introduces you to the music, welcoming you to "the strange world of the 12 inch". You then get a long prelude with the different layers of instruments being introduced one by one (all the guitars and rock influences on this track had hidden many of the dance elements present, so it was pretty enlightening) to then proceed to the song proper, which sounds amazing.

Side B begins with the same voice announcing: "The B side", to then blast a really energetic version of Bowie's Suffragette City (!) and then a very odd, but funny song that suddenly falls apart so that the announcer can say "The end", and it's over.

Man, I got so excited that I made two vines of it.

A side:

B side:
https://vine.co/v/eTqiM37WJUV

I really suck at this, I wanted to get the part when she welcomes you to the "strange world of the 12 inch", but it cut too soon.

I got three 7" in the mail that apparently come from a yard sale.


http://cloud2.todocoleccion.net/discos- ... 764500.jpg
Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer
Well, what can be said about this awesome track? It rules.
I will say that it has a pretty interesting, quiet b-side, which has some familiar bits, though I can't place it yet.


http://retro.recordsale.de/cdpix/e/eury ... _a_man.jpg
Eurythmics - I need a man
First stuff from theirs that I ever own. I haven't had a chance to explore this duo, but I adored this rocking track and Annie looks amazing on this cover.
The b-side, called "Heaven" is kind of a remix or rather a different take on "Beethoven (I love to listen to)", which was the first single of the album this comes off from. It kind of makes sense, since both singles were linked in the (equally great) videoclips.

http://eil.com/images/main/Dire+Straits ... 267793.jpg
Dire Straits - Money for Nothing
Sounds awesome, but the end cuts before the "I want my MTV" chant, so that was kind of a bummer.
I got a promo copy, in a standard plastic baggie, so no b side, sadly.

Here's an unboxing. I won't bore you with playing each, though I did vine it.
