Iggy Pop, Kim Gordon and Ian Rankin pick tracks for new compilation celebrating vinyl culture




Joy Division, Allen Ginsberg and Tchaikovsky appear on new release.

Charlatans frontman and vinyl warrior Tim Burgess has announced a new compilation called Vinyl Adventures from Istanbul to San Francisco, to coincide with his book release of the same name.

A celebration of vinyl culture, the book follows a digging road trip undertaken by Tim Burgess tracking down records recommended by the likes of Ian Rankin, Iggy Pop, Tony Wilson, Daniel Miller, Kim Gordon and more. The forthcoming compilation collects those timeless recommendations across double vinyl.

Reading like an all-star list, rarely will you find an album with Love next to Tchaikovsky, The Durutti Column besides Allen Ginsberg and Isao Tomita sitting with Duane Eddy. Find the complete tracklist below.

Due on 29th July on O Genesis, the release is available as a regular edition, a limited edition and a bundle with the book. Pre-order here.
