Finally got my hands on the complete set of the “Tumbling Dice” 7″ and patience is a virtue. This 7″ was originally a Black Friday Record Store Day release in 2010, and knowing that this 7″ would not be limited in terms of numbers and would be readily available after January 1, 2011, I did not brave the morons that break out of their straight jackets and make a run for it from their padded rooms. My record store even had copies left over in December, but only three of the colors.
By buying the complete set of four from Side One Dummy’s web store, I saved money. So after all was said and done my mind and body were thanking me along with my wallet for not going out on Black Friday. I actually got all the Black Friday RSD releases I wanted for retail price, not over inflated ebay prices.
Now to the actual records this entry is devoted to. The packaging is great. They all come in a silk screened, envelope folded jackets. The jackets are made out of sturdy cardboard/paper, whatever jackets are made out of. They all fold into the back of the jacket to seal them. Four colors were pressed with corresponding jackets; black, blue, brown and white. Personally, black is my favorite of the four.
