This record was chosen as the January 2019 Good Thing

We feel so lucky to have stumbled upon this record earlier this year. While searching for albums to fill up our new vinyl section at Little Tandem I picked up a copy of this based solely on the cover - a small photo of Nina Simone surrounded by gold foil on a bright forest green backdrop - how could that not be good? After listening to the record a couple of times I reached out to Mississippi Records to see if they had enough stock for us to offer this to all of you fine subscribers. Turned out they had the exact amount we needed. We cleaned them out! Since then we've gotten many emails from people saying, "Soooo, I heard you got the last copies of The Truth is a any extras?" Just know that you are holding a very deservingly coveted record in your hand. We're so happy to start off our 2019 coffee and record adventure in this fashion. Enjoy! - Will Pratt
