which recordings are these for the blind joe death and death chants records


March 31, 2016
Some of those are in blue vinyl. Mine is but I am not sure how many others.


April 15, 2015
Some of the records in my Transcendental Waterfall box are pressed off-center. What a shame for what is supposed to be a luxurious high quality box set like this.
