Attention Vinyl Collectors – Alex Henry Foster – Direct-to-Vinyl Performance

There is something magical about vinyl, which is why my vinyl habit took a bite out of my wallet again today.

I love how vinyl is inconvenient. You have to prove your love of music…pull out the record, put it on the turntable…and flip it half way through. You are the curator and you listen to an album in the sequence it was recorded.

I was happy today to support one of our local shop: Aux 33 Tours who offer free delivery (anywhere in Quebec) for orders over $60. Yeah…I hit the $60 mark pretty easily.

Alex did his own Record store day event this past week-end and offered his Windows In The Sky for free to the first 50 who ordered in-store or on the website.

My best friend just lost her father today. She had her “last embrace”, as LAVENDER SKY reminds us, but the sad truth is that many did not get a last embrace as a result of COVID-19 and not being able to visit those that left us.

Death is all around us, but so is life. That’s what Lavender Sky means to me.

The juxtaposition of a Lavender Sky in Tangiers, the beauty in the world, as Alex dealt with the loss of his father, was a contrast of elation and sadness.

“I see “Lavender Sky” as the acceptance of things we don’t know and can’t control, as much as an admittance of our own fear is what makes us who we are and keeps us as human as the sky we keep longing for…”, says Alex Henry Foster.
