So it was back to eBay were I’ve already been seeking out the best deal I can from the 40+ copies of The Fall that have been listed there in the past two days. And much to my delight I was able to snap up a copy this evening for just over £25 (the original sale price being £15). Ah, Gorillaz complex over, I can back to work… or at least gaze out of my window and daydream about little pink plastic bags floating on a highway.
Today, Gorillaz’ tour album, The Fall, goes on commercial release worldwide.
I’ve actually had a digital version of the album since Christmas 2010 as part of my Sub Division fan club subscription. Back then I had my misgiving. I wouldn’t hold it in the same esteem as the band’s other studio albums, but it’s really grown on me in recent months, especially thanks to the airplay of ‘Revolving Doors’.
What pleased me most about this physical release was that the album would be getting a special limited vinyl release on as part of Record Store Day 2011.
I had a terrific time celebrating my first proper Record Store Day, but I didn’t manage to get my hands on the vinyl album I was desperately craving.
