Vinyl Love – Patterson Hood – Heat Lightning Rumbles in the Distance

Vinyl love for the new solo album from Patterson Hood – having listened to the tracks from his album from live recordings and YouTube recently I’ve been looking forward to the arrival of Mr Hood’s new album, which duly turned up this week and as expected the packaging is quality, sweet double gate-fold with a quality CD style lyric booklet and a little bit of Wes Freed – the content well that’s pretty high on this years personal chart and I highly recommend it.
