Roughtrade Exclusive - Behind the Counter with Max Richter
May 17, 2017, 08:42
Those on the Roughtrade mailing list will already know about this but it looks so good it's worth a post:


Blurb

"Rough Trade Shops Present Behind the Counter with Max Richter. This spectacular compilation put together by much-loved British composer Max Richter is the first in Rough Trade Shop’s Behind the Counter series, in which some of our favourite artists create mixes especially for us using the records we sell on the shop floor.

As big fans of Max, Rough Trade invited him to curate a mix, knowing he would pick out some unexpected gems. The result is a 36-track (on CD) and 33-Track (On Vinyl) compilation of soundbites, pieces of composition, interesting mixes and curious musical choices including tracks from Mogwai, Boards of Canada, Philip Glass, Aphex Twin and Low among some classical works by Rachmaninoff and Bach.

3LP+ - Rough Trade Exclusive. 33 Track Unmixed Triple 180 Gram Transparent green coloured vinyl with 7". It comes with a Download of the Mixed Version. The bonus 7" features two Max Richter tracks - Whale Window Hotel and Farewell Threshold Laudanum.

3CD - Rough Trade Exclusive. 36 Track Mixed Triple CD Version with bonus CD including the 7” tracks and a selection of unmixed tracks pulled from the LP track listing."

I bought the CD, arrived yesterday. I played (what amounts to) Side A in the car on the way in to work, pretty stunning. With a voting interlude. The Bach piano into Partita III especially.

Yeah my CD arrived yesterday too - I can't get past the extra disc (the RT exclusive mix), keep playing it over and over. Will unwrap the 2CD proper at some point but this is sounding rather special so far. Clearly the tracklisting above is for the vinyl though and the CD has a different running order. Really happy with this purchase.

Thanks for the tip! I find I'm buying more compilations than albums proper these days - intelligently put together they are of course valid entities in their own right and they do lead me down some interesting highways and byways.

Mate, I'm a total sucker for compilations, always have been. It's completely different to this one but I can recommend Making Time: A Shel Talmy Production. It's the best recent compilation I've snuffled.

Whoah, that looks far out and groovy. Ace Records I see, always deliver

My favourite recent purchse is Honeybeat 60s Groovy Girl Pop, kicks off with The What Fours'(4 models trying their hand at making music) trashy, provocative 'I'm Gonna Destroy That Boy' and doesn't let up.

Love that tune! Have you got the Destroy That Boy and Girls With Guitars comps? Both great. The Gia Mateo tune from Honeybeat is great - I seem to remember Marc Riley or Gideon Coe playing that recently.

OK, shut up now please, I'm trying to save a little money! Yeah, 'If You Can't Say Anything Nice' is a little corker.
