Get ready for Record Store Day

Each Record Store Day has gotten bigger than the last, and it feels like this week’s Black Friday version is shaping up to be a whopper. All the usual rules will apply; first come, first served, no holding of products, only one per item per customer etc. There aren’t as many products as April, but there are way more than last year’s Black Friday. Here are a couple of the highlights;

-Phish-Party Time and The White Tape-two full length LPs by Colorado favorite Phish. Last April, the 7” they put out was one of the hottest items and the first to sell out.

-Pete Townshend-The Quadrophenia Demos 1- A sweet 10” with 6 demo versions of Quadrophenia songs, including one that didn’t make the final album.

-Tom Petty-Kiss My Amps Live- 7 live tracks from the 2010 tour on a 12”

-The Beatles-Singles Box Set-very nice package –individually numbered with 4 singles, a poster, and a 45 adapter.

-Pink Floyd-The Wall-singles Box set-this is the coolest package of the day-3 singles and “another brick in the wall” box to house it all.

-Janis Joplin-Move Over-7” box set w/6 unreleased tracks!!-a bonanza for collectors

-John Lennon-Imagine-40th anniversary box-w/ Original LP, Sessions LP on white vinyl, poster and 2 postcards-beautiful.

-Iron & Wine-Morning Becomes Eclectic 12”-nice 11 song radio session.

-Syd Barrett-Octopus-Stunning Tin filled with a colored vinyl 7” and a whole book of Mick Rock photos

-Bob Dylan-Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?-awesome box set w/ 4 mono singles in picture sleeves.

-Kings Of Leon-Massive box set with their first three lps and a fourth lp of rarities-very nice!

-Nirvana-Nevermind-The Singles-numbered-five 10” singles-a collector’s dream.
This is just a small sampling. There will be close to a hundred unique pieces on offer. Avoid the malls-go local! Besides you won’t find this stuff at the malls.
