Tape Deck Heart – A Vinyl Revolution Mystery

As a long time fan of folk-punk troubadour Frank Turner, I was over the moon when one of my first sales at Vinyl Revolution was a copy of Frank's seminal fifth album Tape Deck Heart.

As a die-hard Frankophile, I own two versions of the album; one standard black version and a limited edition (to 200 copies) ‘sunset splatter’ coloured vinyl which required some searching for!

When arriving at work on Friday, new stock had arrived in store; lo and behold, it was sitting on the counter. The Tell Tale Signs were there - the negative image album art, the unique barcode, and I knew, this was the rare colourful disk that had apparently sold out across the world.

Simon tempered my excitement as wishful thinking, but as we opened up the record, and the glorious spectrum of pink and yellow lit up the counter, we wondered how this disk came into our stock.

The label haven't officially announced a repress, so this must be one of the fabled 200?

Come down to Vinyl Revolution on Duke Street in Brighton to pick up this rogue copy for £20, before it's Good & Gone!
