Night Beat Rewind: January 2016

January comes in Like a Lion.... No, that's March. Needless to say there has been no post Christmas sluggishness. January releases have come upon us with the force of a New England Blizzard. But that's not much of an excuse for my delay. Though I have been doing my best to keep #PlatVnyl6 from falling behind schedule too much. And since I no longer have to worry about links, reserving that for the quarterly wraps, or individual blog posts, I should have done this sooner. No time like the present, so let us get to it.

The Singles Scene

  • Coppe Cantrell - Dance In The Dark 4.50 Emeralds
  • Fearless BND - Shake The Skies 4.50 Emeralds

  • Brittney Nichole - Sounds of Freedom 3.75 Emeralds
  • Red Letter Hymnal - Neon Lights 4.50 Emeralds
  • Red Letter Hymnal - Winter Air 4.50 Emeralds

Pure Platinum Perfection
