Though there's obviously a lot happening in the world, we here are Twist are just holding steady here with a bunch of music but without a ton of news for you — except to note that there are a lot of cool releases below and throw out a reminder of some stuff we've mentioned the last couple weeks. First off, it's worth noting again that we've been seeing a lot of used great stuff coming in, so be sure to check the new arrivals bins for lots of good finds on vinyl and CD. And if you're interested in selling your LPs, CDs, or Blu-rays (sorry, we're currently not buying any DVDs), please give us a ring at 303-722-1943 to set up an appointment to sell! You can keep up to date on what our Covid-19 policies and restrictions are by clicking HERE. We will update this regularly as the shape of the pandemic — and the national, state, and local responses to it — changes, and this page will always have the most up to date info. And as our typical Colorado winter weather fluctuates all over the place, folks who have to wait in line to get in when we're at capacity will be able to enjoy the new heaters we've installed outside to take the edge off of the cold.
And in contrast to the last few weeks that have been a bit of a desert, there are quite a few worthy releases out this week — you can click the link below to see the biggest releases of the week, but here are some of the reissues and smaller ones that caught my eye: David Bowie's superb Station to Station album is being reissued on limited, colored vinyl; there are four Mariah Carey LP reissues and six Dire Straits remastered LP reissues; Richard Hell & the Voidoids' sophomore album Destiny Street is being reissued as Destiny Street Complete, a set containing four different versions of the album that he's made over time, while in other NYC CBGB's era punk rock news, Tom Verlaine long out-of-print album Cover is being reissued in a deluxe version featuring two bonus tracks; and speaking of deluxe, the Kinks' classic Lola Vs. the Powerman and the Moneygoround Pt. 1 is hitting the shelves in its fancy CD/45/book release that has been repeatedly delayed but is finally here; Nashville indie rockers Moon Taxi's new album Silver Dream is out on both LP and CD; bluesman Seasick Steve's new album Love & Peace is out now on CD (the LP is slated for a 2/19 release); and last only alphabetically, the new one from the Esbjorn Svensson Trio, When Everyone Has Gone, is out on CD.
Over in DVD and Blu-ray, we've got a few notable blu-rays out this week: Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese, Scorsese's only somewhat-truthful telling of Dylan's unexpected 1975-1976 tour (also available on DVD); JSA: Joint Security Area, Korean director Park Chan Wook's thriller that takes place in the overlapping space between North and South Korea; and John Carpenter's Prince of Darkness, his 1987 supernatural horror film that envisions Satan as a vat of primordial slime. There are always even more releases above and beyond those, but these are the ones that caught my eye the most.
And here's another quick reminder about gift cards — we have two types of gift cards: those that can be used in the store and those that are for use only on our website. Web gift cards can be purchased on our website HERE and in-store gift cards can be purchased either in person here at Twist or online HERE. Please remember that in-store gift cards cannot be redeemed for purchases on the website and online gift cards cannot be redeemed in the store. Feel free to call the store with any questions about this!
Hope you're all doing well and staying safe and healthy!
