Pressure Sounds Record Store Day box

We have  a hand silk screen printed box containing 5 forty-five records for Record store day on the 19th of April. The box is limited to approx 350 copies. Four of the five records will have been available from us before. It's only available from Records Stores and you will not be able to buy it from the Pressure Sounds website.

This is not aimed at regular buyers of Pressure Sounds records as most of you will have the discs already. The Joy Lindsay 45 This Child of Mine which has not been available before will be available from the Pressure Sounds website in late May 2014.

Dub Vendor at Black Market in Soho will be stocking the box as will other shops scattered around the world. Its difficult for us to say where exactly as we are not distributing the box but ask at your local store if you want them to order it. The box will be retailing at £25 approximately.

The five 45s in the box are

Joy Lindsay - This child is mine
Pat Francis - Guys get a blow
Big Youth - Town without pity
The Attaras- Brimstone and fire
