I catalog my music purchases on Collectorz and Discogs, but they don’t give me a sense of change over time. So I’m noting them here weekly as well.

Kim Gordon, No Home Record, Oct. 11
Kim Gordon’s music career spans numerous decades, but only now does she release a solo album. Of course I’m curious.
The Police, Every Move You Make: The Studio Recordings, Nov. 8
I bought a used copy of Message in a Box, so I really don’t need this set. I want it, but I don’t need it.
Shiina Ringo, Newton no Ringo ~Hajimete no Best Ban~, Nov. 13
Many popular Japanese artists release multiple career-spanning retrospectives. Shiina Ringo releases her first after 20 years.
Sam Amidon, Fatal Flower Garden EP, Nov. 15
Billed as “A Tribute to Harry Smith,” this 4-track, 7-inch EP features Amidon performing songs from Smith’s Anthology of American Folk Music.
Clannad, In a Lifetime Anthology, March 13, 2020
No details have emerged yet of this career-spanning compilation, but the Brennans embark on a farewell tour to support it. They will be missed.
Everything But the Girl, Walking Wounded, Nov. 8
Yes, please. Thank you.
Shiina Ringo, Sandokushi, Dec. 11
Rule of thumb for Shiina Ringo vinyl releases: place a pre-order because they will be gone.
