And the winner of the English Beat contest is…

Today is the Black Friday edition of Record Store Day. In commemoration of that, The English Beat have a new re-issue/expanded edition of their 1980 album, I Just Can’t Stop. It contains a ton of unreleased material and comes on silver vinyl. Black vinyl and CD versions will be available on January 24. The total run will be limited to just 8,000 copies globally.

HOWEVER, I came into possession of something much more rare: A copy of the album signed by singer Dave Wakeling and I wanted to give it away to A Journal of Musical Things reader.

And the winner is Ryan French of Winnipeg!

Thanks to all the people who emailed entries before last night’s 11:59 pm ET deadline.
