It's a fine line between clever and stupid, but the 1984 faux-documentary This is Spinal Tap walked it perfectly, and Spinal Tap's self-titled album is coming back in its original black vinyl. While it's obviously been available in modern formats, this is the first time in decades that record aficionados can get their hands on a new copy. The album will come with the original liner notes, with an all-black color scheme. Naturally, it's launching on June 11th — though you can pre-order it from Amazon or The Control Group — and includes 11 tracks, including the classics "Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight," "Stonehenge," and "Hell Hole." If you can't wait until June, of course, you can always go ahead and laser-cut your own copy on some wood.
