If there is one nearly “sure thing” in the indie rock world / blogosphere, it is that people like Radiohead. Now I know there are several people that still “don’t get it” but I expect that to always be the case to an extent with every band. In the past year, Radiohead have done some amazing things to change the music industry, and elevate themselves to the level of elite status among rock bands of the past 20 years.
And now, we have a Best of coming from the band next week. And boy is it loaded up. Here are the options you have for purchasing the Best Of Radiohead….
*1CD collection featuring 17 tracks
*Special Edition 2CD, adding 13 tracks
*4-piece vinyl set with 29 tracks
*17-track & 30-track digital downloads
*DVD featuring 21 classic promo videos
Obviously, the vinyl is the thing highest on my radar, but all of the above are enticing. And I am excited to let you know that I have 3 copies of the 17 Track CD to give away right here on ENS! To register, just send an email to enscontests at gmail dot com. In the subject line type Radiohead and within the email, pick the song you feel should have been on the album, but was not. Full tracklisting is after the jump…..
The contest will run until next Friday, good luck!
