These are two albums I managed to pick up last year that were ridiculously limited and really deserve having a few more people listening to them.
Golden Jooklo Age - Tropical Trips (Qbico & Troglosound - 2008)
This was limited to 125 vinyl copies on Qbico and 38 CDRs on Troglosound. This Italian collective have had a spate of limited releases over the past couple of years (most projects involving the word 'Jooklo') all of which are now rather expensive or impossibly hard to find. This is one of my favourites from 2008 and the CDR version linked to here comes with a 4th track the vinyl didn't include. A bit jazzy, a bit mental, 100% amazing.
Richard Youngs - Nerston Surface (No Fans - 2008)
I can't say my knowledge of Richard Youngs music is vast, and as a result when 'three headed star' (another 2008 release on No Fans limited to 50) arrived I was a little put off, but still decided to try this album. Fortunately it headed down a rather different route and is a lot more pleasing. Just two tracks of piano really showing off two different sides to his playing and both well executed.
(Don't expect this blog to always be this generous.)
