Join the Real World Vinyl Club

Real World Records have started a new vinyl club for all members of our mailing list to share in our love of the analogue format.

Each month, we will choose a different album from the catalogue and make it available for a special price. It will give us a great excuse to delve into the story of the album: how it was made, the inspiration behind the music, and other things of interest. We’ll also explore some of the technical aspects of making music on vinyl, and why vinyl has become such a cultural phenomenon in the digital age. We kicked off the series in September by featuring one of the five albums that were released upon the launch of the label 30 years ago: Passion Sources.

Portico Quartet - Live/Remix double LP

In October, our vinyl album of the month will be Live/Remix by Portico Quartet, originally released in 2013. This is a double album capturing the energy of the band’s live shows, as well as presenting a different side to their music in a series of remixes by an eclectic mix of producers.

To avail of an exclusive 33% discount on Portico Quartet’s Live/Remix, be sure to subscribe to our mailing list before Sunday 13 October 2019.
