START YOUR EAR OFF RIGHT: Week 3
We’ve spent the last few Tuesdays reminding you of how Rhino’s ongoing vinyl reissue campaign, START YOUR EAR OFF RIGHT!, has been releasing the latest LPs for its 2018 edition, and now that Tuesday has rolled around again, we’re here to tell you – or remind you, if you read those past posts we just referenced – what’s hitting record store shelves this week. We should also make sure you realize that this is the last week of the campaign, so you don’t show up next Tuesday and get disappointed.

Before we let you move on to the next piece, we just want to underline a point that you’ve hopefully already read for yourself: these are limited-edition releases, so if any of them tickle your fancy, run immediately to your friendly neighborhood music retailer to get your copy before there are no more copies to get!
