THE COTTON EXCHANGE - Vinyl Only Subscription-based Blues Label

So evidently my pal Jay Martin has been holding out on me:

Welcome to THE COTTON EXCHANGE—your centralized forum for the finest in vinyl-only blues re-issues and curated historic recordings. The Cotton Exchange is a subscription service that offers its subscribers 2 LPs quarterly (8 LPs a year) of the finest in the blues tradition, along with exclusive original liner notes and other ephemera.
From classic bluesmen like Bukka White and Blind Willie McTell, to the modern greats such as Otha Turner, the Cotton Exchange will produce high-grade, 180-gram blues releases—many of which feature unreleased recordings, music that has never been on vinyl before, or has been out of print for years and is not available in its original form anywhere else.
Welcome to a quarterly blues picnic with all the fixins. The Cotton Exchange is your gateway to home delivered blues celebration.
Subscribe and get 8 LPs a year (2 per quarter) for $100, including shipping!
