Doctor Who - The Caves Of Androzani - Original TV SoundTracks

Pressed on Transparent Purple Vinyl in a four colour gatefold sleeve, this double LP version of the Classic Who soundtrack is being released as part of Silva Screen's 50th Anniversary Doctor Who celebrations. The Caves of Androzani was Roger Limb's seventh of eight contributions to the series, and the first of his two very successful collaborations with director Graeme Harper. Broadcast in March 1984, the 4 episodes showed the regeneration of The Fifth Doctor (Peter Davison) into The Sixth Doctor (Colin Baker). In 2009 The Caves Of Androzani was voted the best in the history of the series by fans.

Social Distortion - While Light White Heat White Trash 

In 1996 Social Distortion released their 5th album, White Light, White Heat, White Trash. The line-up featured a new drummer Chuck Biscuits (Black Flag/Danzig and many more). White Light, White Heat, White Trash was the last album with Dennis Danell on guitar (he sadly died in February 2000). The album received Social Distortion's highest ever chart position, entering the Billboard 200 album chart at #27. It also includes radio favourites : "I Was Wrong" and "When The Angels Sing" and a superb cover version of the Stones' "Under My Thumb". Stylistically, the album is harder and considered a return to their hardcore punk roots. Social Distortion is something of a legend in the punk genre and still continues to receive worldwide respect and support.

Florida Atlantic University Giving Away Vinyl Records

Florida Atlantic University’s Recorded Sound Archives, which preserves and digitizes rare and historic recordings, will host its third annual giveaway of excess vinyl records from Monday, Jan. 6 through Friday, Jan. 10, 2014, and again from Monday, Jan. 27 through Friday, Jan. 31, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the fifth floor of the Wimberly Library, 777 Glades Road, Boca Raton campus.

The giveaway, which is free and open to the FAU community as well as the general public, features thousands of LPs and 45 rpm vinyl discs that span from the 1940s to the 1990s and features every genre, including pop, Latin, jazz, classical, opera and orchestra music. Cassette tapes and CDs also are available.

Created in 2010 to collect, organize and protect access to digitized copies of vintage audio recordings, the RSA houses more than 150,000 jazz, Judaic and vintage recordings, making FAU Libraries one of the top 20 libraries in the nation for sound recordings.

“The RSA receives 10,000 records every year from people all over the county who want to be part of our preservation effort,” said Maxine Schackman, the RSA’s director. “Many of these recordings are either duplicates or outside the range of our collection criteria. These excess recordings pile up over time, so each year we give the community a chance to browse through them and take what they want.”
