We’re back with a short but sweet RECORD OF THE WEEK blog for all you vinyl fiends and enthusiasts… This week’s top choice is quite amazing if we do say so ourselves… Check out this massive double LP from PAGAN ALTAR, courtesy of Buried By Time and Dust!! Yes, that is a case wrapped gatefold jacket with custom debossing and gold foil stamped printing on the front and back! The ‘Gold’ colored vinyl choice was an obvious but perfect one as well…. Holy smokes, what a beast!!
