No.40: Jesus and Mary Chain - Damage and Joy
Released: March 24th 2017
Label: Artifical Plastic
UK chart position: 16
Price (see below*): £35.00
Comments: the first of only 2 recent releases in the top 50. The indie shop limited edition orange vinyl version of the first album in 19 years from the Jesus and Mary Chain, Damage And Joy. Criticised in some circles as JAMC by the numbers, which was maybe fair. But a by the numbers JAMC is still significantly better than most manage.
*RULES & REGS.
This has nothing to do with my own personal favourites necessarily.
I used Discogs median price rather than max prices, as some of these are crazy.
The exercise was done mid Feb 2018 and the price/order may have changed since.
All the albums featured I bought new at the time.
The top 50 pretty much all come from the early to mid 90s (I was a late CD switcher).
They are also often the last thing I bought on vinyl from the act in question.
I can't promise my versions would necessarily be worth the same as what Discogs suggests!
And you might be surpised who appears most often, including at no.1.
