It's a TVD Autographed Vinyl Giveaway! | Smokey Robinson's 'Time Flies When You're Having Fun'

Autumn’s arrived and very soon the evening chill will seep through the window panes and you’ll hanker for someone to cuddle up with and get warm. Might we suggest the one and only Smokey Robinson?

Celebrating 50 years in the music industry, Smokey kicks off our random Fall Vinyl Giveaways with his new release ‘Time Flies When You’re Having Fun’ featuring appearances by Joss Stone, Carlos Santana, and India.Arie.

For this first Fall giveaway we’ve got TWO copies of ‘Time Flies...’ for two lucky winners. Smokey’s in top form on this new one, having recorded live in the studio with his stellar backing band which adds an element of warmth and immediacy to all the tracks on this set.

From a design standpoint, the LP sleeve itself is a knockout too. Shepard Fairy’s Studio One (the folks behind the iconic Obama ‘Hope’ image) have outdone themselves for Mr. Robinson. The 11 tracks span two 180-gram vinyl LPs which are housed in a gorgeous gatefold sleeve—and Smokey’s personally signed the cover of both LPs for TVD.

So, sing us a love song to the Motown legend in the comments (with contact info – important!) and he or she in the 50 States who croons the sweetest will win the LPs. We’ll choose two winners next Monday (9/28) so get to penning those notes!
