*I’ve decided to start a new offshoot of the Artifacts section just for records called Record Roulette. Increasingly I find myself buying records for their sleeves or packaging, regardless of the music, most of which I don’t know until I get them home. RR will be a showcase for these finds with Artifacts for all the other non-vinyl bits and bobs.
