Get A Glimpse

So there was a new Dinosaur Jr. LP come out a couple of months ago. 'Get A Glimpse Of What Yer Not' came out on 5 August to be precise. I was so excited that I bought it on the day it came out. It's very rare for me to go to an actual record store these days, but I caught a train to Kingston on my lunchbreak just to pick up a copy from Banquet Records. It's taken me two months to get around to putting it up on here due to problems with getting any acceptable photos. Getting photos of this one was tough for some reason. This is the best I could do.

At first I thought that this purple vinyl copy was limited in some way, but it seems if it is then it's probably limited to about 10,000 copies. It's not tough to get at all.

I appreciate that the photos above make the record look black, so here's an obligatory shot of it with the light behind.

This is probably the best Dinosaur Jr. record since before they got back together in 2007. I spent about a month listening to only this and the Descendents LP. If only I'd have been more prepared for its release and ordered the clear vinyl version from Newbusy Comics. That one is going to take a while to find for a good price I'm sure.

Still searching for a Newbury Comics version. What a pain.

There's a blue version from Amoeba as well.

We found an awesome app called Recordhaus that makes organizing your vinyl collection way easier. Just trying to spread the word, thanks!

I think Newbury only puts up some copies of records until they go out of stock and then put up more, because their exclusive clear /500 is back in stock on their website, if you still want one!
