Jake’s Top Three Picks At Casbah Records
Thu 19 Oct 2023
It's that time of the week again, and today's blog is about our guitarist Jake's top three picks at Casbah Records!
We have recently done our latest photoshoot in Greenwich with Jenny Thornton, check out Jenny's work on Instagram @jenslivemusicphotography)! And as a part of that photoshoot we went to Casbah Records, a charming vintage records store, and as well as a few shots each of us also recorded a video with our top three picks at the store.
These videos will be released weekly and this week's video as published on our socials was Jake’s! So let's dig a little deeper and get to know a little more about those albums.
First let’s tell you a little about Casbah Records (check them out on casbahrecords.co.uk).
Casbah Records is South-East London’s premier independent record shop.
They are choc-full to the brim with top quality new and vintage vinyl, new CDs, DVDs, books, comics and t-shirts. They may also be one of the last shops in London to stock 8-track cartridges, plus listening facilities for them!
They cover everything from R.N.R, R.N.B, surf, soul, prog rock, folk, rock, blues, reggae, jazz, afrobeat, psychedelia to hip-hop, punk, indie and electronica.
They take a keen interest in contemporary music and have a great selection of new releases on vinyl and cd plus all the classic and hard to find reissues.
This is an amazing record shop you have to go to if you like music!
Now on to Jake’s top three picks there:
USE YOUR ILLUSION II
Use Your Illusion II is the fourth studio album by the American hard rock band Guns N' Roses. The album was released on September 17, 1991, the same day as its counterpart Use Your Illusion I. Both albums were released in conjunction with the Use Your Illusion Tour.
MASTER OF PUPPETS
Master of Puppets is the third studio album by the American heavy metal band Metallica, released on March 3, 1986, by Elektra Records. Recorded in Copenhagen, Denmark at Sweet Silence Studios with producer Flemming Rasmussen, it was the band's last album to feature bassist Cliff Burton, who died in a bus accident in Sweden during the album's promotional tour.
RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
Rage Against the Machine is the debut studio album by American rock band Rage Against the Machine. It was released on November 3, 1992, by Epic Records. The band released their first commercial demo tape of the same name 11 months prior to the album's release. The tape contained earlier recordings of 7 of the 10 songs featured on the album.
And that's it guys! This is the third and final of a series of blogs about our members top finds at Casbah Records.
