Today is the first ever National Album Day – here are 32 that we made earlier



Today (Saturday, October 13) is the first ever National Album Day, an event to celebrate Britain’s love affair with the long-player, which celebrates its 70th birthday this year.

It’s very easy to be cynical about this event – not least because it goes by the acronym of NAD and is clearly just designed to shift some more Fleetwood Mac LPs in Sainsbury’s – but there is something very special about the album format that makes it the most satisfying way of digesting music.

Sonic Cathedral started out as a label in 2006 with a strict 7” vinyl only policy, until we cracked in 2009 with the release of the Cathedral Classics Volume One compilation and the first Sad Day For Puppets album. Now we’re 32 albums in and counting…
