Orange Juice for Charity


This will be a short post, but I felt like it deserved attention. I don't know about you, but I've been incredibly frustrated over the years about not being able to get a hold of Orange Juice albums. The only album consistently available is the greatest hits compilation The Glasgow School, and it definitely isn't the definitive Orange Juice collection. However, now you have a chance to own all those extra tracks you're missing and give to charity. The Vinyl Villain, a music blogger from Scotland, revealed in his latest post that he will make you customized CDs of any of the Orange Juice tracks he owns for £6 per copy - £5 of which will be going to The Quarriers, a Scottish charitable organization that provides support and care for adults and children with a disability and young people with housing support needs. He's got pretty much everything an Orange Juice fan could want, including b-sides, Peel sessions, and Radio One sessions. I, myself, intend to gather up all the tracks that I'm missing from the three main Orange Juice albums.

So, if you're an Orange Juice fan and fancy buying some music for a good cause, pop over to the above link.
