| ||Bristol Archive Records Discog Profile:|
"Bristol Archive Records is a record label dealing in Bristol post punk 1977 onwards.
We aim to showcase music from the diverse Bristol Music scene and provide a historical account / document of all things Bristol that should never be forgotten. Many of the artists and releases are rare, unknown or never before released. The material has been lovingly digitally remastered from vinyl, ¼ inch tape, dat or cassette. The original vinyl releases would generally have been limited to runs of 1000 copies or less."
This was ordered by my local record shop as part of the almighty splurge of supposed Record Store Day "releases", but was more likely to have just been bundled up in to the whirling anything goes vibe of the occasion. It no doubt sold to a frenzied punter for about £50 or something in April, but can now be found languishing in the RSD leftovers bin for it's original price or less.
Both sides are high quality reissues of classy late 70's reggae obscurities and I'll be searching out anything else I can find on this label, which had previously avoided my radar.
