The vinyl phase is hanging on like e tick.  Seems that every kid now needs the vinyl of their favorite albums and well the manufacturers are dancing in the streets and the labels are rubbing their hands together.  Let alone the turntable factories cranking out the spinning machines.

This fad (and I do mean fad) will carry on awhile as the cool factor is high and will take some time to cool off.  But as these people start realizing how much space these albums take up and how the ‘amazing sound’ they pretend to hear (lets face it- the average Jim aint hearing a damn difference between stream and vinyl) is not portable- it’s done.  Honestly are we gonna go back to recording off vinyl and using Walkman?  Let’s bring back the cassette!

This all being said- the infamous tune “Rebel Rebel” is turning 40.  Yup.  It’s not hard to believe either.  I honestly thought it was older but alas it is not.  So what do we do when something hits a milestone?  We re-issue!!

Next up in the metered dose release of pic disc is the eye patch wearing Bowie.  The hair, can we have a moment to appreciate this iconic ‘do?  Still sported by residents of the Ozarks and lesbian women it has become the spiky symbol of all things .. 70s.  The now 67 year old no longer sports jumpsuits, looking very much his age. But with the help of technology can stay forever spinning groovy on discs such as this.

Mach 10th is it’s release date- save your pennies children. Of course, it’s an ‘uber rare’ version of the tune and the B side (now called the AA side) is a shitload of overdub nonsense fit to blow your mind.
