IMG_20150403_124904Vinyl Box sends you exactly that, a mystery box of various vinyl records. You can choose a 1-time shipment or a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription, then you choose the genre. The choices are Hip Hop, Metal, Punk, Rock, Soul or “Surprise Me!”. The box they sent was their “Surprise Me!” which could include pretty much anything.

1982 Dagored

I’ve never seen this movie but it’s the Ennio Morricone soundtrack from movie Butterfly. Not to be confused with the Mariah Carey Butterfly album or the Ashton Kutcher Butterfly Effect soundtrack.

IMG_20150403_131050Considering the Elvis single still sells for $15+ and the Death Grips LP for $20+ and the Butterfly LP for $15+ Vinyl Box is a GREAT value. With how unpredictable the “Surprise Me!” can be, I still think I would pick a specific genre from Vinyl Box’s list.
