Label: ORG MUSIC
Quantity: 1500
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

Anywhere II is the second, proper full length release from musical entity Anywhere, following their 2012 self-titled release. The sound began with two friends Christian Eric Beaulieu and Cedric Bixler Zavala (The Mars Volta) digging into open tuning and hybrid ragas with punk energy. The project evolved into an expansive, bizarrely curated cavalcade of A-list psychedelic exhibitionists from all parts California, and a few world famous musicians playing non-famous instruments, all arranged and overseen by a mostly unknown, humble guitar playing surfer dude. The line-up of “II” finds Beaulieu and Zavala accompanied by Krist Novoselic,  Mike Watt,  Dale Crover, Jonathan Hischke, and many others. No where else in the world can you find a recording with members of Comets On Fire, Nirvana, Earthless, Melvins, Flying Luttenbachers, Sleepy Sun, Triclops!, Devendra Banhart, Lieutenant, Golden, Black Fork, Victims Family, The Mars Volta,  fIREHOSE, AND a winner of America's Next Top Model. And no one ever will again.

Baby Huey

The Baby Huey Story: The Living Legend

DETAILS

Date: 4/21/2018
Format: 2 x LP
Label: Run Out Groove
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

James Thomas Ramey, better known by his stage name Baby Huey (taken from the Paramount Pictures animated giant cartoon duckling) was born in Richmond, Indiana and moved to Chicago in the early '60s to front his band The Babysitters with co-founders Melvin Deacon Jones on trumpet and Johnny Ross on guitar. By the time they recorded The Living Legend, only Huey and Jones remained (Deacon Jones would go on to play with Freddie King and John Lee Hooker). Because of a glandular disorder, Huey weighed close to 400 pounds at times, contributing to his "larger than life" stage presence, but also to a host of health issues. During the later '60s, The Babysitters followed Sly and the Family Stone's lead and became a psychedelic soul act, with Huey adding rhymes to their stage act. Curtis Mayfield, tipped off by Donny Hathaway, came to check them out and they were in the midst of recording The Living Legend for his label when Huey died in a hotel room, just a few weeks after Jimi Hendrix. It became a posthumous release. Fast forward a few years to Kool Herc (one of the original hip-hop DJs, who began to spin two copies of "Listen To Me" at the same time---starting the Baby Huey cult, and leading to "Hard Times" being sampled by the likes of A Tribe Called Quest and Ice Cube. The lacquers for this RSD 2018 release were cut directly from the analog tapes by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Record Industry. It comes in a tip-on Stoughton jacket and includes a bonus LP of unreleased instrumentals making their vinyl debut.

SIDE A: "Listen To Me", "Mama Get Yourself Together", "A Change Is Going To Come" SIDE B: "Mighty, Mighty", "Hard Times", "California Dreaming", "Running" "One Dragon, Two Dragon" SIDE C: "Little Linda Turn On"*, "Running"*, "Hard Times"*, "You Make Me So Very Happy"* SIDE D: "Mama Get Yourself Together"*, "Turn On To Me"*, "Mighty, Mighty"*, "Aquarius"*  *Unreleased Instrumental

The Beau Brummels

Bradley's Barn

Format: 2 x LP
Label: Run Out Groove
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

The Beau Brummels, taking their name from George Bryan "Beau" Brummell, who was a model dandy in British society in the 1800s, originally formed in San Francisco in 1964. The band's debut single, "Laugh Laugh" helped break them into the mainstream and would later be cited as helping to establish the San Francisco Sound. By 1968, Sal Valentine (lead vocals) and guitarist Ron Elliottt were a duo when they stepped into Owen Bradley's studio in Mt. Juliet, TN, about a half hour outside Nashville. With legendary producer Lenny Waronker in tow and backed by some of Nashville's finest session musicians, they conjured up an intimate and heartbreaking final stop on their five year journey from British-folk rockers to alternative country obscurity. What they created was like nothing else and has stood the test of time. This deluxe expanded edition for Record Store Day pulls together the homespun, inviting and timeless music created in Bradley's Barn and adds a bonus LP of demo recordings that are finally making their debut on vinyl.

SIDE A: "Turn Around", "An Added Attraction", "Deep Water", "Long Walking Down To Misery", "Little Bird", "Cherokee Girl"  SIDE B: "I'm A Sleeper", "The Loneliest Man In Town", "Love Can Fall A Long Way Down", "Jessica", "Bless You California" SIDE C: "Lift Me (Alternate Take)", "I Love You Mama (Alternate Take)", "Just A Little Bit of Lovin' (Demo)", "Tan Oak Tree", "Another", "High There", "Black Crow (Stereo Demo)", "Deep Water (Alternate Version)" SIDE D: "Love Can Fall A Long Way Down (Alternate Mix)", "Jessica (Alternate Take)", "Bittersweet", "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight", "Long Black Veil" "Confessions (Demo)"

MORE INFO

The greatest hits of the late, great, Chuck Berry! Truly a greatest hits record that stands on its own as a definitive LP in the discography of the Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer. We’ve given this extraordinary collection a major facelift with stunning new art and pressed it onto gold vinyl. The legacy of Chuck Berry is nearly beyond description-–Berry means originality, being the first true rock and rolling, gyrating guitar god, and the earliest rock and roll lyricist whose words are worthy of a poet’s pedigree. And Berry means success, too...all of the dozen recordings on this long play record were hit recordings, from the beginning (“Maybelline,” in the summer of ‘55) to the most recent waxing (the fun and funky “Nadine"), both supercharged tales featuring cars and girls, subjects close to the singer’s heart. Here are a dozen of his monumental achievements: guitar-driven, rocking, rolling music with his hip, happening wit and genius wordsmithing–Chuck Berry’s Greatest Hits!

01. Roll Over Beethoven 02. School Days 03. Rock And Roll Music 04. Too Much Monkey Business 05. Johnny B. Goode 06. Oh, Baby Doll 07. Nadine 08. Maybelline 09. Memphis 10. Sweet Little Sixteen 11. Thirty Days 12. Brown Eyed Handsome Man

MORE INFO

In the early 2000s, Cam and his Diplomats were ruling New York, and Purple Haze undeniably took them to higher heights. Among numerous producers in his stable, relative newcomer Kanye West brings the heat twice here, with the single “Down & Out” (with Kanye pulling double duty, also rocking the mic) and “Dip-Set Forever.” Elsewhere, Cam’s Diplomats crew swarm to support, on “Hey Lady” (with
Freekey Zekey) and the more minimal, N.W.A. tribute “The Dope Man,” with Jim Jones. “Bubble Music” is a Cam standalone, with some reggae-tinged chops that change the pace a bit. Purple Haze was another Diplomats volley that kept their flame burning hot, ruling the streets of NYC and far beyond. Presented here as a 2-LP on appropriate purple vinyl, don’t miss out on your chance to revisit and rock to one of the era’s most memorable platters.

MORE INFO

John Carter Cash has been producing music for the past 25 years, but has written his own music his whole life. Working out of The Cash Cabin Studio, John Carter’s creative center, "We Must Believe In Magic" is a collection of 17 songs recorded over the course of the last ten years. On this album, there comes together an assort-ed and wondrous host of musical guests, from some of the most recorded Nashville session players ever, to visionary recording artists from the bluegrass, rock, and country music world.  For the most part, the music is original, some co-written with a number of master songwriters, including Bill Miller, Shawn Camp, and Wesley Orbison. Much of the production is sparse and simple, focusing on the song and the individual instrumentalist. But John Carter certainly holds no limit or containment around his creative energy, and this double-album is certainly diverse and presents an unparalleled epic journey. 

Track Listing 1) We Must Believe In Magic 2)Feel Like Going Home 3) Brave Young Man 4) Dragon Song 5) Runaway Train 6) Prayers for St. Regis 7) The Dungeon 8) Heaven's Song 9) Holy Train 10) Dance With Me 11) Awake Sweet Dreamer 12) Jayne Hill 13) Hurt 14) Let The Lower Lights Be Burning 15) Paradise 16) Poor Boy And The Captain's Daughter 17) Into The Blue

MORE INFO

'First released on by James Iha and D'arcy Wretsky's Smashing Pumpkins offshoot label Scratchie Records in 1996, the Chainsaw Kittens' self-titled album was never officially released on vinyl. For the album, the Oklahoma four-piece enlisted the help of The Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd along with the help of a number of violinists and orchestra members, successfully making the album their most commercially successful. The Chainsaw Kittens toured with the album for over three years, selling out stadiums and theaters with bands like the Smashing Pumpkins, who often cite the Kittens as an early influence, along with Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. Of the album, AllMusic says "the overall feeling of the album is more melancholy and thoughtful than any previous one, capturing the sense of sadness and desperation...". For this first ever official release of the album on vinyl, a wealth of archival material has been drudged up, including never before seen live photos and art which will be included in an inner booklet. The album cover will be a full-color gatefold with newly created artwork by award winning Flaming Lips designer George Salisbury. Vinyl will be pressed at Archer Record Pressing in Detroit, MI with 1000 LPs pressed on red vinyl and 1000 LPs pressed on black vinyl. 100 randomly inserted copies will contain an original press photo, newly autographed by the band.

The Tomb of the Cybermen launched the 1967/8 series of Doctor Who.

Commissioned as Doctor Who and the Cybermen Planet, this was the third encounter between the Doctor and his half-human, half-machine foes.

Label: Opal

Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

2-track double A side 12". "The unexpected, fully welcome, and deliriously successful pairing of professional ex-glam sound genius Brian Eno and his new sidekick, My Bloody Valentine noise sculptor Kevin Shields. Begging to be listened to on noise-canceling headphones or very, very loud speakers, the duo blast off with a drum track that is instantly, almost comically subsumed into a nine-minute sound-cleanse of bells, drones, and a soaring rocket flare that may be a guitar. Ambient but hardly static, its tones and textures return throughout, as if tracing long and inaudibly developing melodies. Not immediately identifiable as either Eno or Shields' work, a rich, enveloping piece of music" - Pitchfork.

MORE INFO

FIDLAR's debut LP plunges the listener into the band's beer-soaked, late-night, raucous garage party. Named for a skate slogan and boasting a distinct punk pedigree (two members are sons of T.S.O.L.’s Greg Kuehn), the SoCal group drives forward with the kind of nihilism that has good times in mind and little else. This album touches blues riffs and surf-rock reverb with the same dirty paws, immediately resonating with anyone who’s ever found themselves on the beach alone picking up empties after the party’s over. In celebration of Mom+Pop's 10 year anniversary we will be re-issuing key catalogue pieces on picture disc based on the album artwork. These pressings will include a 10 year commemorative Mom+Pop poster as well as collectible temporary tattoos.

“This was a song that just fell out of the sky fully formed. Sometimes when you are performing you get so high, it’s hard to know how to come down. There is this feeling of being cracked open, rushing endlessly outwards and upwards, and wanting somebody to hold you still, bring you back to yourself. It’s an incredible, celestial, but somehow lonely feeling.” --Florence Welch

MORE INFO

Sir George Martin, known as “the Fifth Beatle”, is one of the greatest producers of all-time and recorded a dozen international hit singles. It was a natural progression for George to write for films - two of which are featured here. “THEME ONE” is the exciting instrumental George was commissioned to write for BBC’s Radio I. George adores Bach and these pieces are an opportunity for him to indulge in his admiration for this great composer. “THE BOND SUITE” consists of different arrangements of the James Bond theme and a groovy version of Wings’ classic “Live and Let Die”. Beatles to Bond And Bach is a small glimpse of an exceptionally gifted person. “THE BEATLES SUITE” is focused on the orchestral sounds of some Beatle classics.  Limited Edition of 2.500 Individually Numbered Copies on 180g Blue Vinyl

MORE INFO

Every living creature must face the will and judgment of time. Ancient Greeks personified time in the form of the titan Kronos, father of Zeus, and ancient Egyptians celebrated Heh as an abstraction of endless years. Famously, William Shakespeare lamented humanity's immutable fate as "time's subjects" in Henry IV. Mastodon ponders the nature of time on their eighth album Emperor of Sand. Threading together the myth of a man sentenced to death in a majestically malevolent desert, the Atlanta quartet conjures the grains of a musical and lyrical odyssey slipping quickly through a cosmic hourglass. Emperor of Sand is pressed on full color picture disc vinyl for Record Store Day 2018.

The Motor City Five, pressed on black vinyl at Third Man Pressing in the Motor City!!! Includes brand spankin’ new liners by David Fricke of Rolling Stone, who says, "This session, at the city's famed United Sound, was soaked in local R&B aura; John Lee Hooker cut his studio debut, ‘Boogie Chillen,' there in 1948. ‘I Can Only Give You Everything’ was in that spirit and faster: a rolling-thunder feature of the MC5's live sets pulled from Van Morrison's 1966 album with Them, Them Again. ‘I Just Don't Know’ was the band's own bravado, a Bo Diddley-style gallop with a boxer's barrage of power chords."

Includes brand spankin’ new liners by David Fricke of Rolling Stone, who says, “In a 1966 live recording, the MC5 played ‘Looking at You’ like Motown raga. At United Sound, the band hit the zigzag riff at light speed and stayed there, framed by searing lead guitar and explosive drumming. ‘Borderline’ was a frantic jigsaw of power-chord jolts and sheet-like harmonies detonated again, at the Grande, for the live recording of the MC5's first LP, Kick Out the Jams.”

Their Satanic Majesties Request

Format: LP
Label: ABKCO

Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

Recorded at London’s legendary Olympic Studios during the heady days of the ‘Summer of Love,’ in a landscape of fervent creativity – Pet Sounds, Sgt. Pepper, Hendrix, the Velvet Underground, and the Who – Satanic Majesties stands out as a dramatic landmark. The band’s first full venture into the world of ‘psychedelia,’ it may have split critical opinion at the time, but is long overdue for reassessment – an innovative and experimental piece, as much influenced by Coltrane, John Barry’s spy thriller scores, and classical composers as the blues and R&B of previous releases.  Produced by the band, engineered by Glyn Johns, and with string arrangements by John Paul Jones, it features some of their most imaginative soundscapes, which included African rhythms, mellotrons, ‘found voices,’ and full orchestration. Amongst the song highlights are the beautiful She’s A Rainbow, with its elegant harmonies, piano intro, and strings, the powerful, riff-driven Citadel, and the imposingly dark, cosmic rocker 2000 Light Years From Home, with its sinister keyboard effects (courtesy of Brian). It also features Bill Wyman’s debut writing and singing credit on a Stones release – In Another Land. The pioneering packaging – a ‘lenticular’ sleeve with a 3D-style Michael Cooper image of the band- and the album’s title (a mocking adaptation of the wording, ‘Her Britannic Majesty Requests and Requires…’ on British passports), both confirmed the group’s creative intent and also its satirical attitude.

"I find the imminate connection of the emotional body to the mind and soul intensely beautiful. Whenever I find ease in the mind, my physical pains dissolve. De-hydration of the soul, means drying out the cracks of the joints. These pains are experienced as real. They reflect in each layer of our being. In order to have clearness in our head, we need to clear our hearts. The Calling is the soul telling me to return. Ground. She is the birth of all that is. When her voice cracks, it tenderly does like joints.

I believe there will come an end to where these painpoints point. By listening. I am, before I am mine or yours.” - Sevdaliza

MORE INFO

The Shins, the acclaimed pop project of songwriter James Mercer, have won the hearts of many, building strongly from the early releases on indie luminaries Sub Pop Records to the recent, deeply intimate album, Heartworms. They did the unexpected when they re-recorded every song on the album in a completely different style and reversed the running order for The Worms Heart released last month.
“the top-line melody remains intact, but everything else - the instrumentation, tempo - is altered.” -the Guardian
This split 12” titled Los Lobos vs. The Shins features three distinct versions of their song, the Fear; the original booming, sweeping track from Heartworms; the second kinetic “flipped” version from The Worm’s Heart; and the final rendition, heavy on the heartstrings, is from buddy-band Los Lobos, which took vital form while the two groups played out together. In Mercer’s words, Los Lobos “just destroyed our version.”

Mystery of Love EP

Format: 10" Vinyl
Label: Music On Vinyl
Quantity: 10000
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

Director Luca Guadagnino of the worldwide movie hit Call me by Your Name found himself resonating with Sufjan Stevens' lyricism through his work and initially asked Stevens to record an original song. Eventually, Stevens contributed three songs to the Call me By Your Name soundtrack: "Visions of Gideon", which was used at a very emotional scene at the end of the film, "Mystery of Love," for which a video was made and a new rendition of "Futile Devices" with piano. Stevens penned the songs by using the script, the book, and the conversations with the director about the characters. It marks Sufjan Stevens' first soundtrack for a feature film. For the song “Mystery of Love” he received an Academy Award nomination in 2018.

The first pressing of The Mystery Of Love 10” EP is pressed on transparent vinyl. This limited edition of 10.000 copies is individually numbered and only available on Record Store Day.

The American singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens is well known for creating deeply personal songs with an understanding of the power of melodies and emotional impact. He started back in the 90’s and released his first album in 2000, called A Sun Came. It’s the album in which he introduced himself to the world as a musician who never let any of his feelings floats away. He just integrate it in his rhythms and melodies, from electronica and folk to indie and rock. In 2005 he brought his album Illinois to life, a masterpiece which reached number one on the Billboard charts.

Call Me By Your Name, the multiple award winning movie by Luca Guadagnino, is a sensual and transcendent tale of first love, based on the acclaimed novel by André Aciman. Summer of 1983, Northern Italy. An American-Italian is enamored by an American student who comes to study and live with his family. Together they share an unforgettable summer full of music, food, and romance that will forever change them. The film received critical acclaim upon its release, being already positively compared to Brokeback Mountain and Moonlight. Critics praised in particular Chalamet, Hammer and Stuhlbarg's performances, Guadagnino's direction and the screenplay.

Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

Sun Ra, the extraordinary, outlandish, and sometimes controversial pianist, is often described as an "acquired taste”, with a massive and diverse catalog. This release is a good place to start for uninitiated or dismissive listeners. The album showcases Ra’s grounding in the jazz tradition, with unique takes on standards like "Time After Time," "Easy to Love," and "But Not for Me”. Not unordinary for Sun Ra, the recording process was informal; "Can This Be Love?" was recorded in his Chicago apartment in 1955; he is accompanied only by the great Wilbur Ware on bass. The other five tracks, which feature, among others, Ra's longtime associate John Gilmore on tenor saxophone, were recorded at the Choreographer's Workshop rehearsal space in 1962 and 1963. The album is finally receiving its first ever vinyl release with a psychedelic color pressing, exclusively for Record Store Day 2018.

The End

Introspection/Retrospection

DETAILS

Date: 4/21/2018
Format: 2 x LP
Label: Demon Records
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

In 1965 The End arose from the glowing embers of the earlier Tuxedos, Innocents and Original Topics, and like many of their contemporaries evolved into a psychedelic group. Subsequently they re-invented themselves as blues rock outfit Tucky Buzzard in late 1969.  Along the way, they won the support and patronage of the Rolling Stones’ Bill Wyman, who in 1968 produced their sole album for Decca, “Introspection”, the first LP in this set. Wyman also co-wrote their signature tune, the psychedelic classic “Shades Of Orange”, although the band wrote all the rest of their material.  This 2 LP set pairs “Introspection” with “Retrospection”, an LP of outtakes from the album sessions, issued briefly on vinyl in the mid-90s. The gatefold sleeve features artwork by legendary designer Phil Smee, including photos and ephemera, and a note by founder member Colin Giffin.

Short Dog's In The House

DETAILS

Date: 4/21/2018
Format: LP
Label: Get On Down
Quantity: 1900
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

“In my category, I’m the one and only,” proclaimed Oakland legend Too $hort on his 1990 single “Short But Funky.” Few disagreed then, and even fewer would do so decades later.
First appearing in the mid-1980s slinging homemade tapes out of his car trunk, the man born Todd Shaw has always stayed true to himself. And although he is known more for the dirty side of his rap game, on “Short But Funky” he also reminds listeners of an important fact: “There’s a serious side to everything I say.” Short Dog’s In The House was $hort’s sixth album, and his second for the Jive label. By the time it hit, he was a West Coast legend, but his rep was growing Eastwards, as the rest of the country started opening its ears to new sounds. Peaking at #20 on the national Billboard 200 chart, the album was exactly what his dedicated fans expected – funky, 70s-drenched beats made for cars on the boulevard; and no-nonsense lyrics that made more sense and dropped more knowledge than he was ever given credit for. For examples of his conscious side, look no further than the P-Funk fueled “It’s Your Life” or the album’s lead single, “The Ghetto.” The album’s second single “Short But Funky” landed somewhere in the middle of $hort and Todd Shaw, talking about where he was at as the new decade broke, and making it clear that he wasn’t going anywhere. His mortality was particularly on his mind after rumors had surfaced the year before that he had died in a crackhouse. He speaks directly to this crazy episode on “Dead Or Alive.” And although it’s mostly a solo affair, he brings in some heavy artillery – and a lot of not-for-the-kids profanity – on “Ain’t Nothin’ But A Word To Me,” featuring none other than Ice Cube. In between, $hort distributed plenty of tales and charisma for fans to eat up, continuing to build his legendary status as one of the rap trailblazers of the era. Presented here on black wax with a poster of the excellent cartoon cover graphic, it’s time to give this one a spin, whether it’s the first or 100th time.

MORE INFO

John Carter Cash has been producing music for the past 25 years, but has written his own music his whole life. Working out of The Cash Cabin Studio, John Carter’s creative center, "We Must Believe In Magic" is a collection of 17 songs recorded over the course of the last ten years. On this album, there comes together an assort-ed and wondrous host of musical guests, from some of the most recorded Nashville session players ever, to visionary recording artists from the bluegrass, rock, and country music world.  For the most part, the music is original, some co-written with a number of master songwriters, including Bill Miller, Shawn Camp, and Wesley Orbison. Much of the production is sparse and simple, focusing on the song and the individual instrumentalist. But John Carter certainly holds no limit or containment around his creative energy, and this double-album is certainly diverse and presents an unparalleled epic journey. 

Track Listing 1) We Must Believe In Magic 2)Feel Like Going Home 3) Brave Young Man 4) Dragon Song 5) Runaway Train 6) Prayers for St. Regis 7) The Dungeon 8) Heaven's Song 9) Holy Train 10) Dance With Me 11) Awake Sweet Dreamer 12) Jayne Hill 13) Hurt 14) Let The Lower Lights Be Burning 15) Paradise 16) Poor Boy And The Captain's Daughter 17) Into The Blue

MORE INFO

"The Big Break" is a masterpiece of Latin music, the kind of formidable artistic statement that established the Fania label as a cultural icon-- going beyond the parameters of a company specializing in crowd pleasing dance music. Needless to say, this is still a great party album, filled with dance friendly classics such as “Barrunto” and “Abuelita”. At the same time, it crystallizes the Colón/Lavoé aesthetic that the duo had been developing on previous albums ("The Big Break" was Colón's sixth release on the Fania label.)

Compton's Most Wanted

Music To Driveby

DETAILS

Date: 4/21/2018
Format: LP
Label: Get On Down
Quantity: 1000
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release

MORE INFO

There are West Coast classics, and then there is Music To Driveby, the third LP from the group that birthed MC Eiht: Compton’s Most Wanted. Although the group started in the late ‘80s with multiple MCs (including Tha Chill and Boom Bam), by 1992 Eight was pulling the group’s vocal weight – supported by DJ Mike T on turntables and production – and even producing and co-producing tracks. Music To Driveby might lack beats-per-minute variety, but to fans that’s not a bad thing. Across the board, this is mid-tempo, super deep, funky hip-hop, made for cars creeping along boulevards across the West and South, and it’s about as good as it gets for such purposes. Just about filler-free, the album struts intensely and with purpose, as Eiht throws tales of Cali street life at fans for an hour straight, almost without a break. This solo marathon is given a respite only once, with Scarface’s guest spot on “N 2 Deep,” an excellent hood roller supported by a soulful guitar lick sampled from Lyn Collins’ “Do Your Thing.” Elsewhere, Eiht rolls alone and intensely, on cuts like the classic smash single “Hood Took Me Under”; the album’s second single and Tim Dog attack “Who’s Fu**ing Who?”; the hometown big-up “Compton 4 Life”; and hustle tales like “Jack Mode” and “I Gots To Get Over.” After this album, Eiht released more classics under his own name, and with similar fan worship. It was the continuation of a legendary career and Music To Driveby still ranks high on anyone’s “West Coast Legends” playlist.  THIS RELEASE WILL BE DISTRIBUTED NATIONWIDE BUT WILL PRIMARILY BE FOUND IN CALIFORNIA RECORD STORES.

Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release

MORE INFO

Billy Davis is a true rock 'n' roll troubadour. Having performed with Hank Ballard & The Midnighters and Little Richard, Davis is no stranger to rock 'n' roll. You'll hear his guitar playing on hits like 'Finger Popping Time', 'Let's Go, Let's Go, Let's Go'.and Jackie Wilson's 'Higher And Higher'. Davis taught Jimi Hendrix how to play the guitar (really), and he was personally invited by Elvis Presley to perform with him at Graceland. He was a close personal friend to Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson, and he rubbed shoulders with a member of the Manson family who secretly toured with Ballard in the 1980s under a different name. He's in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, as he should be. This is Billy Davis' inaugural release with Jett Plastic, and we are insanely proud to have worked with engineer Zach Shipps on this completely solo effort, pressed on chestnut brown vinyl with a download card and booklet enclosed.

Spielt Mozart

Label: One Way Static
Quantity: 500
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release

MORE INFO

Florian Fricke (1944 – 2001) was a German music pioneer who started his career in electronic music using the Moog synthesizer within the famous Krautrock group ‘Popol Vuh’. Fricke studied piano, composition and directing at the conservatories in Freiburg and Munich where he also dedicated himself to new kinds of music like ‘free jazz’. In 1967 he met German film director Werner Herzog and the two formed a life long friendship (Fricke was later responsible for the soundtracks of several of Herzog’s movies). His recordings left an indelible mark on German electronic music. However, he later significantly gave his Moog to fellow German musician Klaus Schulze and largely renounced electronic music in favor of often-acoustic tones. Besides working on his own music, Fricke collaborated with many German musicians & bands like Tangerine Dream & Amon Düül. Over the course of his career Florian put out countless Popol Vuh albums and two solo albums, the first one being ‘Die Erde und ich sind Eins’ (1983) and in 1991 he recorded an intimate album of Mozart compositions. Fricke plays a beautiful selection of his favourite Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Allegro’s & Adagio’s on ‘Spielt Mozart’ (plays Mozart). A very personal album for Florian, it was released as a tribute for the 200th anniversary of Mozart’s death. Trying to achieve a deep inner-peace, Fricke looses himself completely in the vibrations and wonderful melodies. The result here is a honest interpretation without pretence or hidden motives, a tribute from one composer to another, almost like a dialogue between the two. Now, for the FIRST TIME ON VINYL (these recordings only received a limited CD release in the early nineties) OWS records proudly presents a deluxe double vinyl edition exclusively for Record Store Day 2018. Strictly limited to 1000 copies, available in participating stores on 4/21.

MORE INFO

Double Date is an independent British horror film that was released to great applause in 2017. The film was written by and starred Danny Morgan and was the debut movie directed by Benjamin Barfoot.  Ben approached Goat in 2016 asking them if they would be interested in appearing in the film he was making as he had a club scene where he wanted to feature a band playing live. And when he and Danny were coming up with the idea for the movie they had Goat’s ‘World Music’ album on repeat and it was the band's infectious tribal grooves that he wanted in the scene.  During filming of  Goat’s scene Ben and the band bonded and he invited Goat to score the whole film, so their unique DNA would be running throughout the whole picture. The band liked the idea and decided to take the challenge on. And we at Rocket are very excited to be able to release the complete score Goat created for the film on a special ltd edition ‘pool of blood’ coloured vinyl 10” LP especially for Record Store Day 2018. The album contains all the original music Goat created to soundtrack the film plus the music they made for the trailer. The score also contains a different version of Goat’s live anthem ‘Run To Your Mama’ that was especially created for the film.

MORE INFO

Steve Kalinich is best known for his association with The Beach Boys, with whom he collaborated on songs such as “Little Bird” and “Be Still.” His songwriting partnership with Brian Wilson extends into his solo work, including “A Friend Like You,” the duet between Brian and Paul McCartney. His lyrics have always been imbued with a strong affinity for the transcendental, and this album is no exception, with the music ranging from dark Jim Carroll/Leonard Cohen-ish lamentations (“Things You Cannot Control”) to bluesy r&b rock (“Here With You”) and emphatic rockers (“13th Level” and the title track). Scrambled Eggs is the follow-up record to his first solo album, A WORLD OF PEACE which was produced by Brian Wilson in 1967. It features a dozen new songs by Stevie, cowritten with friends like Dylan LeBlanc, Tara Holloway, Ellis Hooks, Robert “Butch” Johnson, and producer Jon Tiven. Stevie’s poetic sensibilities shine forth, and he is joined by singing partners Black Francis, Bekka Bramlett, Ellis Hooks and the aforementioned Dylan LeBlanc and Tara Holloway. Musicians include Mickey Curry, Todd Snare and Shannon Pollard on drums and percussion, Sally Tiven on bass, Robert “Butch” Johnson and Jon Tiven on guitar and Tiven on most everything else.

MORE INFO

Guitar legend and Television co-founder Richard Lloyd has had a profound influence on rock & roll, with people like Jeff Tweedy citing Lloyd as his “musical hero”. Yet Lloyd’s solo career has somehow largely been overlooked and under-appreciated.With the release of his critically acclaimed 2017 memoir, Everything is Combustable, there is a renewed interest in his post-Television work. Perhaps the most obscure of his solo releases is Lodestones, an album that was released in 2010 only as a digital download. That album is finally getting its due with a vinyl pressing for Record Store Day 2018.

Later That Day

DETAILS

Date: 4/21/2018
Format: 2 x LP
Label: Real People
Quantity: 1250
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release

MORE INFO

A crucial founding member of the Northern Cali-birthed Solesides / Quannum collective – which included DJ Shadow and Blackalicious, among others – and one half of the groundbreaking Latyrx duo (with Lateef The Truthspeaker), Lyrics Born opened a lot of ears and minds with his 2003 solo debut, Later That Day….
On this very open-minded and chiefly self-produced long player, Lyrics Born and his crew (including Joyo Velarde, on vocals; guitarist Tommy Guerrero and Germany’s funk masters Poets of Rhythm) bring it from the funk side, boasting a warm soul stew instead of colder drum machine-based beats and chopped samples.
As shown since his earliest days, the incredibly versatile Lyrics Born mixes his flow up depending on the track, from tongue-twistingly fast to conversationally mundane, and concepts are usually at the forefront – “Cold Call” is an amusing take on telemarketers, featuring Gift of Gab; “Before And After” is about friends growing apart; “Bad Dreams” is a groovy apocalyptic shaker. The infectious “Callin’ Out” rides the party train and “Stop Complaining” timeshares between funny and serious. “Do That There” features DJ Cut Chemist with liquid cuts that work around LB’s verbal floor routine.
And even after all of the other musical fireworks, the album’s crescendo most assuredly comes on track eleven, “The Last Trumpet”: operatically dramatic and powerful, with Lyrics Born and Latyrx-mate Lateef trading verses like “the only action / we can profit from / is movement towards / the positive / progressive thought / that’s rooted up / in consciousness” at breakneck pace.
Presented for its 15th Anniversary as a 2-LP set, on colored vinyl, housed in a gatefold jacket with in-depth liner notes by renowned author and journalist Jeff Chang (who also helped found the Solesides movement in the early ‘90s), plus an 11”x17” poster of the amazing cover art, this is a perfect way to re-introduce this classic to a new era of fans – present and future. THIS RELEASE WILL BE DISTRIBUTED NATIONWIDE BUT WILL PRIMARILY BE FOUND IN CALIFORNIA RECORD STORES.

MORE INFO

The Pagans, one of America's first and most influential punk bands, was formed in 1977. Along with contemporaries like The Dead Boys and Pere Ubu, The Pagans and lead singer Mike Hudson literally wrote the book on punk rock. Releasing the now classic 'Street Where Nobody Lives' 7" on Drome Records in 1978, The Pagans went on to enjoy a successful thirty-plus year run. Recorded in 2016, this 7" marks the final record by The Pagans. Mike Hudson, the groups lead singer, passed away in late 2017. All artwork and audio was approved by Hudson prior to his passing, and this pink vinyl 7" package should serve as a fitting send off to a man and a band who had a great deal to do with punk rock history.

“The dazzling symphonic album he always threatened to produce” UNCUT 5/5
“A soulful symphonic masterpiece” ROLLING STONE

Originally released in Japan only on CD in 2002, Plush's Fed lives up to the cult-like adulation it has garnered ever since. A stunning symphony of Bacharach-inspired pop, Toussaint-swing andMelody Nelson-era-Gainsbourg, it’s an album bound together by Liam Hayes' maverick genius; an uncompromising Brian Wilson-esque quest for sonic perfection. Positively indulgent in every way, this sumptuous record has long deserved to be treated to a deluxe vinyl edition. Lovingly overseen by Hayes and recent collaborator Pat Sansone (Wilco/The Autumn Defense), it will finally be available on the format it should’ve always been, this Record Store Day 2018. Remastered and presented as a double LP - cut specially at 45rpm – it comes housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket with expanded artwork throughout.
 
Its expansive, singular vision infamously took years to realise, involving Earth Wind & Fire’s horn arranger (the legendary Tom Tom MMLXXXIV) amongst other elite personnel. Recorded with five different engineers (including Steve Albini and John McEntire), Hayes meticulously extracted every ounce of pop from each note. A long list of renowned studio ringers (including soul drummer Morris Jennings) and Chicago regulars (McEntire, Rizzo, Parker) among many others provide playing of demonstrably professional precision. As such, Hayes' complex, meandering melodies are rendered far more coherent and satisfying than they otherwise might have appeared, bringing his epic, anguished pop to a rarely seen level of perfection and depth. This unstinting dedication to the overarching vision was rewarded handsomely - artistically, at least.
 
However, as might have been expected, his deluxe approach resulted in a bill too steep for any American or European label to ultimately support. It has since seemed unlikely that it would see the light of day on either side of the Atlantic. Yet we were determined not to allow Hayes' lifetime achievement to go unnoticed or let music fans across the world miss out on one of the finest albums of this century.

A wide-eyed opus of stunning intensity, Fed oozes Hayes’ impeccable influences without ever becoming overwhelmed by them. Incredibly, it touches upon Blaxploitation soul, Boz Scaggs-soft-rock, hints of jazz and blues, timeless baroque and skewed pop. In one long minute, the stabbing, soulful "So Blind" moves through five different melodic segments; horns shift easily from haunting backdrop to explosive forefront, smoothly giving way to strings as Hayes' voice casts its bewitching spell. The ambitious soul of “Having It All” has been described as the diffident cousin of Marvin Gaye’s “Save The Children” whilst the breezy "Greyhound Bus Station" is pure 70s AM Gold, evoking the easy warmth of Jimmy Webb’s beloved Land’s End period. The sublime resignation of "No Education", a beautifully slow number that begins, "Never read a book in my life/ But I feel just fine" is post-rock ballad heaven. Arriving towards the end, the title track arrives as a majestic suite; moving from a horn-and-guitar-led instrumental via shifting melodies to Hayes’ compelling vocal bursts.  
 
An album of such brilliance, Fed can comfortably sit alongside such staggering statement pieces as David Bowie's Young Americans, Randy Newman's 12 Songs or Harry Nilsson's Nilsson Schmilsson. Indeed, for all the sprawling elements that went in - lengthy guitar builds, exploding horn sections, solemn strings, female backup chorus - it is a deeply personal and original record. Employing a distinct “more is more” aesthetic, he demonstrates remarkable restraint in producing an album of such intimacy. "My creation has drowned me," he memorably sings on languid opener "Whose Blues", yet he navigates the shifting styles and ideas with enviable ease.

Messa Di Orfeo

Format: LP
Label: One Way Static
Quantity: 500
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release

MORE INFO

Born as Florian Fricke’s brainchild, Popol Vuh needs little introduction, the band stayed active between the late 1960s & late 1990s (until Florian’s passing in 2001). Regarded as pioneers in avant-garde German electronic music, their early works practically laid down the foundations for ‘Kosmische Muzik’ (Space Music) with the then new sounds of the Moog synthesizer joined with ethnic percussions. Later the group evolved to include all kinds of instruments (both electric and acoustic alike) shrouding their music in a spiritual & introspective mystical aura. Popol Vuh influenced many other European bands with their uniquely soft but elaborate instrumentation, which took inspiration from the music of Tibet, Africa and pre-Columbian America. With music sometimes described as "ethereal", they created soundscapes through psychedelic walls of sound, and are regarded as precursors of contemporary ‘world music’, as well as of ‘new age’ and ‘ambient’. Popol Vuh regularly contributed soundtracks to the films of Werner Herzog that include classics like ‘Aguirre’, ‘Nosferatu’, ‘Heart Of Glass’ & ‘Cobra Verde’. Messa di Orfeo is Popol Vuh’s twenthieth and last album, released in 1999 and features music played during the audio-video-light installation as performed in the Labyrinth of Molfetta (Bari-Italy). What makes this album so special is the fact that Popol Vuh were a group that almost never performed live as Florian Fricke didn't feel it would be possible to sustain the level of intensity needed for a full concert, and he preferred to spend the time he would have taken touring with writing and recording. With this unique album, POPOL VUH adds another major work to its constant search for the fusion of mysticism and music. Healing energy via sound (that are very reminiscent of the ambient pieces on Fitzcarraldo and Cobra Verde) makes these recordings spine-tinglingly beautiful. Now, for the FIRST TIME ON VINYL (these recordings only received a limited CD release in the late nineties) OWS records proudly presents a deluxe color vinyl edition exclusively for Record Store Day 2018. Strictly limited to 1000 copies worldwide this release also comes with an insert containing lyrics, liner notes and rare photographic materials. Available in participating stores on 4/21

Throughout the 1990s, the band's studio/live ranks ranged from newcomers to survivors of the band's classic 1960s lineup, including saxmen Tommy McCook and Roland Alphonso, bassist Lloyd Brevett, drummer Lloyd Knibbs, and vocalist Doreen Shaffer. The Skatalites are joined here by several prominent guests including fellow Jamaican legends Toots Hibbert (of Toots & the Maytals) and Prince Buster; jazz improvisers Lester Bowie on trumpet, saxman David Murray, trombonist Steve Turre, and Jamaican pianist Monty Alexander. The jazzers get plenty of room to shine on this mostly instrumental album, from Alexander's "Renewal" and Murray's "Flowers for Albert" to remakes of iconic 60's ska anthems "Man in the Street", "Guns of Navarone", "You're Wondering Now", and "Ska Ska Ska". "Hi Bop Ska" harkens back to the heyday of Jamaican independence, when the freedom sounds of ska ruled the dancehalls. These dozen songs are an essential journey for fans who discovered ska from it's Third Wave (Mighty Mighty Bosstones, The Toasters, Mephiskapheles) and Second Wave (The Specials, Madness, English Beat), but is also a wonderful addition to the band's short lived 1960's output on Studio 1 and Island Records.

Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release

MORE INFO

Melvin Sparks (1946–2011) was a talented American Soul Jazz, Hard Bop & Blues guitarist. The Texas native picked up a guitar at age 11 and was only 13 when he sat in with B.B. King. As a high school student first he joined Hank Ballard and the Midnighters, and then the Upsetters (a touring band formed by Little Richard, which also backed Curtis Mayfield, Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye). Sparks and his guitar were very much in demand during the ‘60s-‘70s and he was featured on sessions by Lonnie Smith, Charles Earland, Lou Donaldson & Sonny Phillips among others. During his career Mr. Sparks recorded multiple albums for renowned labels such as Prestige & Savant and worked as a session musician for Blue Note Records. Melvin Sparks’ songs were sampled countless times by DJ’s and Hip-Hop outfits (including Grandmaster Flash) over the decades. In 1973 Sparks moved into funkier directions and joined the Westbound/Eastbound family where he recorded an all time classic: ‘TEXAS TWISTER’. This record is a delight and there’s A LOT happening while Sparks is peeling off some fluid lightning riffs! Texas Twister features Idris Muhammad on drums, which means a frenzy of funky JB-influenced over-the-top soul-jazz drumming. Featured on Hammond Organ is the great Ceasar Frazier and bass duties are handled by Wilbur Bascomb (know for his performance on Jeff Beck's ‘Wired’ album and the soundtrack for the 1979 film version of Hair). Add some extremely tight horns and congas to the mix (which gives this album a sweet Latin Jazz vibe) and you’re swinging all night long. All of the above is carefully overseen by engineer Malcolm Addey & producer Bob Porter (known for their work with Quincy Jones, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Coltrane etc). Originally released in 1973 on Eastbound Records, super rare and fetching large sums on the collectors market, now finally back available as a limited deluxe vinyl edition (1500 copies) featuring the original art by Neil Terk (known for his work for Muddy Waters, Dire Straits, Funkadelic, Grace Jones etc), released exclusively for Record Store Day 2018 and only available in participating record stores on 4/21.

MORE INFO

Spice 1 was first discovered by Bay Area legend Too $hort and became a member of $hort’s group The Dangerous Crew. Though lacking the national name recognition of Too $hort, Spice 1 is a legend all his own in and around the Bay. His name is an acronym for Sex, Pistols, Indo, Cash and Entertainment – also a fitting description of topics he rhymes about. Before dropping his debut full-length Spice 1 dropped an EP in ’91 on California Indy label Triad Records. The EP peaked at # 69 on the R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart, no small feat. With sales this brisk, he was picked up by Jive Records and this, his self-titled debut, was issued the next year. Week one sales were disappointing, but that all turned around the following week with 900,000 scans, a Gold record and a permanent spot in Bay Area Hip Hop history.  THIS RELEASE WILL BE DISTRIBUTED NATIONWIDE BUT WILL PRIMARILY BE FOUND IN CALIFORNIA RECORD STORES.

Five years before “She’s Acting Single (I’m Drinking Doubles)”, future King Of The Honky Tonks’ Gary Stewart was a staff writer at Forrest Hills Music and cutting mostly unsuccessful singles for Kapp and Decca records. In 1970, Jobette Music, the publishing arm of Motown, travelled to Nashville in hopes of getting more country artists to record their songs. Gary was hired as a demo singer to record them in a country style. The tapes were thought to be lost until Roy Dea heard the tape and began his long pursuit to get Gary a record deal, which he eventually did at RCA, where he produced Gary’s biggest hits. The tapes were thought to be lost until recently, and have never been released or heard before

Although Johnny Thunders legacy remains underground, there are no end of 'Top 10..' listed artists who name check the New York Doll / Heartbreaker as a major influence. His musical legacy has outstripped any empirical chart statistic. His most fertile and unparalled contributions were made in the 1970s, when his songs became a lifelong soundtrack for fans, and his emblematic guitar style bonded with his charisma and thrift couture to influence peers and generations thereafter. Between January and June 1978 Johnny enrolled producer Steve Lillywhite and recorded a wealth of material which contributed to his first solo album 'So Alone'. To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the album Johnny self proclaimed as the best album he ever made, Remarquable Records is releasing a special companion to add further insight to that creative period and showcase a bedevilled artist supported by an unrepeatable cast of friends and musicians which allowed Johnny more time and more control in the studio than he ever had in his truncated life. Consisting of previously unreleased studio recordings 'So Alonesome' is an essential sibling to 'So Alone'.

* Color vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve
* Newly designed artwork by Jae-min Lee
* Liner notes by Charlie Brigden

This is the soundtrack to the first film of Chan-wook Park’s Vengeance trilogy, released in 2002. The film is a crime thriller that follows a botched plot to kidnap the daughter of a small business owner, the plan having been to use the ransom money to pay for a kidney transplant. When the child is accidentally killed, the situation flies out of control as the plot unfolds unpredictably. The film portrays the aspects of human psychology as the protagonists are pulled into the maelstrom, while also focusing on the nature of evil. The soundtrack was provided by UhUhBoo Project, an experimental unit by Hyun-jin Baek (singer) and Young-gyu Jang (producer / bass) who seek to fuse local traditional music with avant-garde /contemporary rock. This is an astounding soundtrack that includes several experimental tracks that fully embody the unique style of UhUhBoo, as well as some folk songs and contemporary pieces. The soundtrack, which was released at the same time as the film, was sold out almost immediately. This left no more copies in circulation, making it nearly impossible to find in its entirety. This vinyl issue is the first reissue of this soundtrack since its original release in 2002.

“Lenin believed that the revolution would be fought with the camera and that the minds would be won in a theater rather than a battlefield. When you go to a dark theater, you’re giving yourself to that screen and wanting to believe, and if it’s done well, you do believe.” – Dennis Hopper

After the incredible success of the film Easy Rider, Dennis Hopper was given a blank check to direct and star in the bizarre, surrealist The Last Movie – released in 1971. Filmed in Peru with Hopper, Peter Fonda, Kris Kristofferson, Dean Stockwell, Michelle Phillips and others – Hopper then brought the raw footage to his home in Taos, New Mexico for editing and final cut. And that’s where the real fun began - fueled by drugs, guns, and orgies – all captured on film by director Lawrence Schiller in a 1971 documentary titled The American Dreamer – that has to be seen to be believed.

The soundtrack features exclusive recordings by Gene Clark, John Buck Wilkin, John Manning, Hello People, and a Fred Neil cover – all produced by Nick Venet (known for his work with Beach Boys, Karen Dalton, Scott Walker, etc).

Dennis Hopper archivist Jessica Hundley has written a lengthy essay about the film & soundtrack – including new interviews with director Larry Schiller, some of the musicians and others involved, while the booklet also features dozens of rare, unseen photos from the New Mexico madness that we’ve printed in full color in a large booklet.

MORE INFO

Deep, deep underground...
From the brimstone Hayseed labyrinth comes Hillbillies In Hell: Volume 666 - a blazing collection of psychedelic pedal-steel guitars, tortured Gospel odes, She-Devils, possessed minors, hayseed barroom homicides, hallucinogenic nightmares and desperate souls. Originally waxed on microscopic labels and distributed in minuscule amounts, these troubled and forgotten troubadours sing of drug-fulled delusions, deathly rivers and Satan's perpetual temptations.
Years in the making – ‘Hillbillies In Hell’ (Volume 666) presents 18 testaments of benighted sinners, timeless tribulations, bottomless graves and the tall flames of eternal damnation.
A Luciferian cache of subterranean 45s, some of these sides are impossibly rare and are reissued here for the very first time. All for your primordial listening pleasure.

Ganja & Hess (Original 1973 Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Format: LP
Label: Strange Disc
Quantity: 500
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release

MORE INFO

Strange Disc Records proudly presents the original soundtrack to one of THE groundbreaking films of African American cinema, Ganja & Hess (1973). Ganja & Hess is a seminal work of African American cinema, flirting with the conventions of blaxploitation and horror cinema, Bill Gunn’s revolutionary independent film is a highly stylized and utterly original treatise on sex, religion, and African American identity. Starring Duane Jones (Night Of The Living Dead) & Marlene Clark (Midnight Cowboy, Enter The Dragon) as the leading roles. Ganja & Hess was honored as one of the ten best American films of its decade by the Cannes Film Festival but was barely distributed to American audiences. Commissioned at a time when ‘blaxploitation’ movies like ‘Shaft’ played as blockbusters in African American neighborhoods, it was suppressed in the United States because it did not turn out to be the Hollywood genre film the producers intended. They wanted a film that would exploit African American audiences — a black version of white vampire films— so Ganja & Hess was withdrawn the when Gunn went beyond the vampire genre and turned in an original product. The original cut was donated to the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) whose restoration work & screenings helped build the film’s reputation as a negelected classic of independent African American cinema. The restored version later received a superior DVD & Blu Ray release through Kino Lorber and in 2014 the film was remade by Spike Lee as ‘Da Sweet Blood of Jesus’. The soundtrack to this exceptional film was composed Sam Waymon, a creative legend who has contributed to local, national and world culture. Born in North Carolina, Sam Waymon began his musical odyssey playing along with his sister, Eunice. His sister left North Carolina in the ’50s and traveled north to pursue her career. Along the way she dropped her given name and became one of music’s most influential and independent musicians, known as Nina Simone. Sam performed with and wrote music for his sister for over ten years but finally broke away to develop a style of his own that combines gospel, R&B, blues and jazz. Sam went on to record for record labels like: RCA, Polygram, and his own label Resolution records. He has worked side by side with legendary artists such as Miles Davis, Donnie Hathaway, Roberta Flack, The 5th dimension, and the list goes on and on. Even more haunting than the film is its music, Sam Waymon created an innovative, ahead-of-its-time mixture of soul, tribal chants, gospel and trippy, dissonant experimental cues that makes for the strangest score for a vampire film. Now, for the FIRST TIME ON VINYL (or on any format) Strange Disc records proudly presents a deluxe color vinyl edition exclusively for Record Store Day 2018. Curated and supervised by composer Sam Waymon himself, this release is strictly limited to 1000 copies worldwide & available in participating stores on 4/21.

This is the beautifully done soundtrack to the last installment of Park’s Vengeance Trilogy, the lyrical drama piece Sympathy for Lady Vengeance. The film is a thriller that follows the protagonist, who serves jail time after being falsely accused of kidnap and murder, and the meticulous path of vengeance she carves after being released from prison. As with the soundtrack for the prior film, Oldboy, music director Yeong-wook Jo brings together a team of composers (Seung-hyun Choi, Ji-soo Lee, Seok-ju Na) to create original scores for the film as well as adaptations of classical pieces by Vivaldi and Paganini. Ever since its first CD release in 2005, this vinyl edition is the first reissue of this soundtrack. The film's score, composed by Seung-hyun Choi, is heavily baroque-themed, featuring many pieces with harpsichord, baroque guitars, and other instruments.

Song Of Innocence

DETAILS

Date: 4/21/2018
Format: LP
Label: Now-Again Records
Quantity: 2375
Release type: 'RSD First' Release

MORE INFO

David Axelrod delivered one of the great psychedelic albums with 1968’s Song of Innocence, based around the poetry of William Blake. It is considered by many his masterpiece. Song of Innocence is this weird hybrid that no one, not even Axelrod himself, could ever really describe. The listener is pulled in by his melodies, simplistic at first blush, but colored by odd chord progressions and turn arounds, grounded by the drummer Earl Palmer and Carol Kaye’s funk, torn between the juxtaposition of musical elements – a jazz vibraphone solo here, a fuzz guitar tear here, a nod to the baroque in Don Randi’s clavichord comps – and put at ease, always, by Axe’s arrangements, which utilize brass and strings in a way that no 1960s arranger did. It’s worth noting that there are really count-on-your-hand examples of anything that might even be compared to Song of Innocence. Perhaps Arthur Verocai’s self-titled and only artist album, issued on the Brasilian Continental label in 1972, or the collaborations between Serge Gainsbourg and Jean Claude Vannier, which found their epitome in 1971’s Histoire de Melody Nelson. But even these albums, superb, in any thinking music fan’s canon of the best from this era, perhaps in their lives - and perhaps in line with Song of Innocence - are one-offs. Axelrod’s Song of Innocence set in path a series of artist albums on Capitol and other labels and influenced the world countless times over, from The Verve to DJ Shadow to Madlib to J.Dilla.
Remastered from the original tapes in a new transfer, with extensive liner notes and unpublished photos.

"Yeah Yeah"

DETAILS

Date: 4/21/2018
Format: 12" Vinyl
Label: SOH Records
Quantity: 1000
Release type: 'RSD First' Release

MORE INFO

"Yeah, Yeah", by the mysterious Memphis underground group Blackrock, was originally recorded in 1969 and released as a 45 RPM 7" single. It's become a cult classic and been sampled by artists such as The Black Keys, Royce Da 5'9, The Roots, and Snow. (It's believed that Jay-Z also recorded a track featuring the sample which has never been released.)  Formed by two session musicians from Stax Records (Archie Turner, Cornell McFadden)  and two session musicians from Hi Records (Willie Pettis, Kurt Dudley), Blackrock appeared for a short time on the Memphis music scene, and it's believed that they first performed at the 1970 Memphis Country Blues Festival at what was then the Overton Park Shell, sharing the line-up with Sid Selvidge, Electric Blues Watermelon, Furry Lewis and Bukka White, among others. They recorded two incredible sides of a 45 single for the Select-O-Hits label in North Memphis. "Yeah, Yeah" was an amazing slab of funk with a rock-hard foundation of drumming provided by McFadden. The flip side "Bad Cloud Overhead" was more dark and foreboding, with lyrics about the drug culture and "gettin busted." Both singles were edited out of a longer continuous performance that had been recorded. Both appear on this RSD 2018 release, along with an extended version of "Yeah Yeah" and an unreleased track. 

Side A. 1. Blackrock's "Yeah, Yeah" (1969 Edit) 2. Blackrock's "Yeah, Yeah (Extended Version) Side B. 1. Bad Clouds Overhead (1969 Edit) 2. Images (Unreleased track)

Eric Burdon & The Animals

Nights in San Francisco

Format: LP
Label: Rhythm & Blues
Quantity: 1000
Release type: 'RSD First' Release

MORE INFO

The Animals. What can one say about the Animals? Out of sight? That’s old. That they fly? They’ve been flying since they began. That they’re great. This record proves it. Well, if one were looking for things to say, one could say that everything is better about this album, especially the recording of vocals and drums. But, of course, the only real question is, how is Eric? Eric is, of course, in orbit (he’s also the lead vocalist, for those of you who aren’t Animals fans). The whole of side one is an uninterrupted symphony of R&B. Just listen to the two versions of the absurdly great “C. C. Rider”. On the other hand (also on the other side, side two) is most of their psychedelic material. Compared to the previous Animals albums, this just seems to pack a little more punch than any of the others with the possible exception of Animal Tracks. Jenkins’s drumming really makes a difference in the overall sound. The group seems freer now, especially on the uptempo material (check “Shake, Rattle And Roll”). And Burdon’s vocals seem to be constantly improving, which is a crucial point. I can think of nothing he has done previously to equal “Tobacco Road” or “When I Was Young.” In any event, the fact is that this album rocks. And when the Animals rock, no one can touch them. My one hope is that there is enough material in the can to put out another album as good as this one. Limited to 2000 copies worldwide.

Side 1: Tracks 1-3: 21 January 1967 live in Hamburg. Tracks 4-6: 20 January 1967 live in Offenbach. Side 2: Tracks 1-5: January 1967 Tracks 6-7: October 1967. Side 1: 1. C. C. Rider 2.

While hip-hop was experiencing a creative revolution in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the genre was still somewhat restricted geographically, primarily dominated by New York City and Los Angeles.  Acclaimed artist Common was among the first successful rappers from elsewhere, officially putting Chicago on the hip-hop map with this debut album Can I Borrow A Dollar?.  Released in 1992, the album is a vintage boom-bap masterpiece, with famed producer No I.D. behind the boards on 12 of 13 tracks.  It also marks the beginning of a storied career, as Common would go on to release three gold albums, create classics with the likes of J Dilla and Kanye West, win multiple Grammys and even an Academy Award, and land several major roles as an actor.  Long out-of-print, Can I Borrow A Dollar? is now back on 2LP vinyl while supplies last.  This 25th anniversary edition also includes a bonus 7” featuring the rare B-side “Can-I-Bust” and the instrumental for the single “Breaker 1/9”.

MORE INFO

Esoteric Recordings is proud to announce the release of a strictly limited edition Picture Disc LP of Curved Air's classic 1970 debut album "Air Conditioning". Originally issued on the Warner Bros. label in November 1970, "Air Conditioning" showcased the highly innovative talents of Sonja Kristina (vocals), ex-Royal College of Music student Darryl Way (violin), former Royal Academy of Music student Francis Monkman (electric guitar, piano, mellotron, VCS3 synthesiser), Rob Martin (bass) and Florian Pilkington-Miksa (drums). Taking their name from the album "A Rainbow in Curved Air" by American composer Terry Riley, Curved Air's debut album perfectly demonstrated the band's innovative musical approach, blending classical, electronic and folk music influences in their work and featuring Sonja Kristina's sublime vocals. Featuring such classic tracks as 'It Happened Today', 'Propositions', 'Vivaldi' and 'Situations', "Air Conditioning" was a Top Ten hit in the UK and firmly established Curved Air as one of Britain's foremost progressive bands. Issued as THE first rock picture disc LP on its original release, this new picture disc edition has been cut at Abbey Road Studios and is a fitting tribute to a classic album by a legendary band.
