Record Store Day is less than a week away, and boxes full of Numero items are flying across the planet by land, air, and sea. Several shops and distributors are making serious grabs for our limited edition Record Store Day item du jour, WTNG: Solid Bronze. Our tribute to the radio station compilations of yore features 11 unique tunes about taking it easy, love crashing around people, magic lamps, and golden ponies. One song even features “Mike McDonald” on keyboards, lending it serious yacht credibility. Shuffled into many (but not all) orders are translucent blue vinyl and opaque pink vinyl (about 300 of each). When you divide this by the number of stores and subscribers we’re satisfying, there’s no telling which version anyone will get, and there is no outward indication what type of vinyl awaits inside. The pink could be described as Barbie Corvette and the blue could be compared to the Great Lake that graces the album’s facade. But it’s not the color of the grooves that matters, it’s what’s inside. Even those who get block-out-the-sun black will still be listening to one remarkable album clear on through to Labor Day and beyond. Check out the variations below, and the dust-jacket collage that accompanies.
