August 12th: Today is National Vinyl Record Day and the perfect way to celebrate the occasion would be to add to your record collection by virtually crate digging in the new arrivals bins at Amoeba (all vinyl ships free anywhere in the US). Below is a Top Ten cross-section of some of the many recommended new vinyl arrivals at Amoeba Music this current week. [See the full list of LP new arrivals here].  These new vinyl arrival albums cover various genres with many of them being most welcome reissues.

Some are brand new releases such as latest from Los Angeles female talent Jenny O. via Mama Bird or the new electronic dance album from collaborative duo BRONSON (ODESZA and GOLDEN FEATURES) on Ninja Tune that’s been released in two different vinyl versions. The list includes such iconic artists as Charlie Parker, Grateful Dead and Johnny Cash.

In the top position of the top ten list below is the 40th anniversary reissue of Split Enz hit album True Colours. That 1980 international breakout hit album by the Australian based New Zealand band, whose founding member Tim Finn went on to later form Crowded House, has been reissued via Warner Music Australia in four different colored vinyl versions; blue,  yellow,  green  and orange vinyl versions. In keeping with its original down under release, when it was issued in different colored album cover versions, the new 40th anniversary record has similarly been reissued in four different colored album covers.

More importantly the 40th anniversary release features a brand-new mix of the record by band member Eddie Rayner designed to bring out the very best in such album tracks as "I Got You," "Shark Attack," "Poor Boy," "I Hope I Never," "Missing Persons" and "Nobody Takes Me Seriously."
