Not many of us actually buy records anymore, since everyone with a music blog gets sent free CD’s or just downloads everything.1 OK, well some people still buy stuff, and if something really makes an impression on me2, then I might actually pick up the vinyl. But there was once a time when those wacky A&R’s used to pull stunts such as adding “Bonus Cassette-Only” songs, which explains why I copped G Rap’s Live & Let Die on tape after I bought the LP3, or just not releasing many copies of the vinyl (Return of the Funkyman and Stunts, Blunts & Hip-Hop in particular).
It would be years before I finally acquired a CD player, but once I did I was able to track-down all my old favourites for a few bucks each in second-hand spots. As a result, I have a random selection of albums in all three formats, including Threat‘s Sickinnahead, King Tee‘s Tha Triflin’ Album and Double XX Posse‘s Put Ya Boots On. Big fuckin’ deal, right? The reason I bring this is up is that it’s this weeks theme for our regular 33Third $20 record voucher give-away. Send photos of your multi-format obsessions before next Tuesday to email@example.com and we’ll figure out a winner based on a variety of factors that I’m still figuring out, although I can tell you now that anyone who has original Mini-Disc issues of rap albums is in with a huge chance.

- 3. Little did I know that the three bonus Trakmasterz cuts were to be eventually issued as b-sides.[back]
