Those pics remind me of the days I used to go to the roller rink Togo skating and the ever visible DJ booth always had a few of those colored and unusual vinyls playing in the mix I always thought the sight of them spinning on the platter was a sight to behold

Sweet Lizzy Project, Technicolor. A fantastic and stylistically varied album from a rock band formerly based in Cuba. Limited edition Technicolor-splattered vinyl which matches the cover art.

I forgot to post this one. I preordered it for arrival in early March last year.

I am not sure but back in 1986, the Canadian group Glass Tiger released "The Thin Red Line" in 1986 which has the songs "Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)" (duet with Bryan Adams), "Someday" & "I Will Be There" (also a duet with Bryan Adams) & the album was in silver!! Hard to say if Capitol Records reissued that album.

Now, here's an oddly colored record:

I hinted at this one a week or two ago. I'll have more of a write-up on it once I get a spare moment to evaluate, and my new tubes come in from Uncle Kevvy.

Anyways, the vinyl isn't clear, and isn't fully opaque either. So you can partly see through it. These have a cloudy/milky appearance. This is supposed to be "Clarity Vinyl," whatever that means. It was kind of a silly period for Classic Records since they were nearing the end and started releasing some outrageous packages like the Clarity Vinyl series, which was an album cut at 45 RPM and pressed single-sided.

The single-sided records were etched on the flip side (I exaggerated the contrast so the etchings would appear):

That Casino Royale Issue label is almost Spot on its missing the Columbia pictures and Screen gems credits under their logos but it appears they did a great job overall

The reissue labels often try to go for as much authenticity as they legally can. And it's also odd how, in the case of RCA, some countries were able to use the Nipper logo, while others couldn't.

The reissue labels that bother me are the ones who use their own label designs. It's a minor annoyance and certainly much easier from a legal standpoint, but it still bugs me a little.

Bright colored pinwheels go 'round in my head.
I recently bought a few records from Walmart, of all places... but among them are two records that I love the aesthetic of.

First is the clear vinyl of Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, which I absolutely adore the aesthetic of as well as the sound quality.

Second is the white vinyl (disc 1) of Queen's Greatest Hits.

Other faves include the red and yellow Venus and Mars by Paul McCartney & Wings, and I got an exclusive translucent blue vinyl of James Taylor's Greatest Hits from Barnes & Noble a few years back. All sound superb.
