Featuring 15 acoustic tracks, this CD of radio session performances was recorded during the 2004-2005 ‘Weightlifting’ world tours.

The CD comes in a simple cardboard sleeve and includes at least one song from each of the band’s 5 studio albums, including two tracks from their recent long player ‘In The Music’.

It originally included two more songs from ‘Cake’, but these were omitted from the final cut. Booooo!

Get your copy here.

You’re Unusual

In my quest to find all kinds of ‘trash’, I sometimes come across some unusual pieces – like this copy of ‘Weightlifting’.

Here is what they call a ‘sample CD’ – it’s not a promo or anything. It is an original CD, the same as regular retail store product, the only difference being the sample factory labels.

These ‘samples’ are from a factory used for CD manufacturing, and have at least one large sticker directly on the artwork containing various production data which usually includes hand-writing.

Occasionally there may be other stickers or markings on other parts of the artwork, such as a descriptive label, like the one shown here.

A rare and unusual item – but interesting nonetheless.

…when this arrived in the post this morning.

A 20-track promo CD with a variety of top bands including The La’s, Pixies, The House Of Love, De La Soul and our very own Trashcan Sinatras – showcased here with ‘The Best Man’s Fall’.

The Edge is one of the most powerful and influential rock radio stations. Based in Toronto, Canada, 102.1 FM it is the third most listened-to new rock station and at one point hooked up with HMV to release sampler CDs of the best new music around.

Big thanks to Douglas in Canada for sending this over.
