June - RSD First

Deluxe edition of their album 20/20 Vision featuring new artwork and 5 new songs. Anti-Flag is a political punk band, which is obvious from their name alone. But over the course of 12 albums across more than 25 years together, they’ve rarely set their sights on singular individuals in songs. Unlike their punk predecessors in the 80s, who made targets of Reagan and his cronies, Anti-Flag has always opted not to date their work with current references, instead focusing on fighting ongoing oppression and dismantling deeply rooted systems of injustice. But on their new album, 20/20 Vision, the band drew a big, fat line in the sand.

Pressed on translucent Red vinyl.


1. Hate Conquers All
2. It Went Off Like A Bomb

Brainiac proudly hailed From Dayton Ohio. They put it on their T-shirts and proclaimed it religiously from the stage everywhere they went. On this double album by the same name, is the band's history unfolding from a new lens, chronologically through remastered singles, covers, and previously unreleased tracks over sides A and B. Sides C and D present a never before heard (or even torrented) example of their bombastic live experience: a concert recording from the legendary Blind Pig in Champaign-Urbana. The gatefold artwork contains a band family tree of sorts, centering Brainiac to many of their local contemporaries as well as various pictures from the band's personal collections. Listening to this release will not get you Y2K compliant, but it is a fresh reminder of how exciting Brainiac was as well as further evidence that Ohio once reigned supremely weird.

The music of Brainiac ended with the death of frontman Tim Taylor in 1997. Offered here is a glimpse into the working mind of Taylor as he susses out tunes and sound experiments in their rawest form, mostly alone with a four track in his mother's attic. Some are mere sketches. Many never again saw the light of day, or morphed so much they are more like distant cousins of future songs. Some of the more interesting Brainiac songs, like Fucking With The Altimeter, Silver Iodine, or Strung, were elevated from the original four and eight track demos later in the studio environment. Attic Tapes serves as a blueprint for how these types of tunes developed. The entire program is stitched together like a distorted dream. Jumping from one scene to the next, it progresses through all four sides in a historically linear fashion, from the very early days through to the final rehearsals.

While this is not an official Brainiac album, it begins to feel akin to what a Brainiac record might sound like if it were produced by neighbor and Guided by Voices raconteur Robert Pollard. Inside the release are some historically related liner notes written by guitarist John Schmersal giving further insight into the origins and backdrop of the demos and the time they were created.

The Deluxe Edition for Village of the Damned presents the full score as heard in the film for the first time, a far more complete presentation then the 1995 Original Soundtrack which was not only truncated, but made of an entirely separate mix that wasn’t featured in the film.   The set does however include the track, “Midwich Shuffle,” a fun number which was created specifically for the 1995 soundtrack despite never actually appearing in the film.  Interest in John Carpenter's original film scores has never been higher, and his collaboration with Dave Davies of the Kinks is a one of a kind moment in cinematic music history. The album includes an all new original art direction with new notes and classic film stills and comes pressed on Orange Haze vinyl.

In 2005, DEVO's Gerald V. Casale released the notorious Jihad Jerry & The Evildoers album as a limited edition CD from Cordless Recordings. With contributions from all of his DEVO bandmates—Josh Freese, Bob Casale (d. 2014), Bob Mothersbaugh, and Mark Mothersbaugh-- it's considered to be the "lost" DEVO album, and a holy grail for collectors. Now, Real Gone Music presents Jihad Jerry & The Evildoers for the first time on vinyl in a special gatefold-and-inner-sleeve package featuring newly created cover artwork by acclaimed woodcut artist Tomo77 and lyrics. Our release also includes a very special bonus track, "I'm Gonna Pay U Back," featuring members of DEVO joining forces for the first time ever with Oingo Boingo’s lead guitarist Steve Bartek. It's been over ten years since DEVO's 2010 album Something for Everybody...this one will slake the thirst of the band's devotees. Red vinyl limited to 2000 copies worldwide.

COMPLETE 1978 LIVE CONCERT RECORDING - FIRST TIME ON VINYL

The two-time Edison-Award winning blues band from the Netherlands, Barrelhouse, will release their complete live recording with Albert Collins as part of RSD Drops 2021.

The year is 1978 and Barrelhouse invited Albert Collins to join them for a TV show. At the time he was not as well known in Europe as he would later become. It became his first appearance on national TV outside of the United States. He returned to the Netherlands later that year for a short tour and the recording of this live album. “Albert Collins and his manager Dick Shurman arrived on the airport, he brought a flightcase with his Fender Telecaster, a packet of spare strings and a suitcase. On stage he was a star, off stage he was one of the band, wanted to travel in the Barrelhouse 9 seater.”

This RSD Drops release on 180g Translucent Red/Solid White/Black vinyl contains an extra, never-pressed-to-vinyl, track “Things I Used To Do”, which completes the concert by Collins and Barrelhouse on December 28, 1978.


A1 Frosty (Live) A2 Honey Hush (Live) A3 I've Got a Mind to Travel (Live) A4 Don't Lose Your Cool (Live) A5 Things I Used to Do (Live)

Out of print LP with limited availability in the second-hand marketplace (the CD has been reissued by Real Gone Music). This deluxe package released as part of RSD Drops will include an OBI side spine on a single cardboard album jacket, printed inner sleeves, original record labels and “double split” blue translucent vinyl.

At The Village Gate is a live album by jazz guitarist Larry Coryell, the “Godfather of Fusion”, recorded on January 21 and 22, 1971 at the Village Gate in New York City. It was released by Vanguard Records. Sadly, far too few people knew of this album at the time as its distribution was limited, but it’s a record that was recorded so well it could easily be considered a live studio release, and one that never fails to open eyes or expand horizons. It’s interesting to note that Larry’s wife Julie sings for the first time on this outing and that’s his son featured on the album jacket.

Rude Boy-Curious Post-Punk Lightning In A Bottle!

'...all of these songs are based on post-Marcusian cliches sophisticated enough to get the average rock fan thinking hard, and some of them are based on post-Marcusian ideas sophisticated enough to get the average post-Marcusian thinking hard. Sounds unmusical but it isn't that either--the singing is clever and impassioned, the punkish, futuristic reggae-synthesizer fusion often catchy and always apt.' - Robert Christgau

June Limited Run

 When Jeffrey Dean Foster watched the Black Lives Matter protests following George Floyd’s murder last summer, he wanted to address the cruelty that prompted them. The result was “I’m Starting to Bleed,” a pastiche of late-period Bowie and “Cruisin’”-era Smokey Robinson infused with a creeping sense of dread. The remixed, reimagined “I’m Starting to Bleed (Pastoral)” strips the song back to its studs, trading the original instrumentation for guitars orchestrated by 1970s Film Stock. “When Was the Last Time” was recorded as a bare-bones acoustic performance at The Ramkat in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Don Dixon suggested making a record out of it, noting that Johnny Cash magicked some of his TV appearances into album tracks. Dixon and Foster’s additions of drums, bass, electric guitar and strings, Beth McKee’s Wurlitzer, and Marti Jones’ pristine backing vocals turned it into a panoramic pop song. “Tell Somebody” is a wall of sound full of sonic nods to The Who, Big Star, and Teenage Fanclub at their Bandwagonesque best. “Headin’ Home” is a tossed-off ode to pandemic isolation, like the Flamin’ Groovies reluctantly following a stay-at-home-order. Dixon and Mitch Easter pulled the mixes together, while Dave McNair (Bowie, Dylan, Patti Smith) mastered the record. The I’m Starting to Bleed EP probably couldn’t have been made outside of the disorienting cauldron of the past year. Foster is currently working on his next full-length album.
Proceeds from this release, and three others in this series support The Shalom Project (an organization that supports NC families in need).
This is a regional release and though it’s available to all RSD-participating stores, it will primarily be available at stores in North Carolina.

Side 1: 1) “I'm Starting To Bleed”
Side 2: 1) “When Was The Last Time” 2) “Tell Somebody” 3) “Headin' Home” 4) “I'm Starting To Bleed (pastoral)”
Side B: “In A Minor Key”, “It Must Be Raining Somewhere”, “Un Autre Temps”, “Come Home To Me”, “There's A Dream Around The Corner”, “Cerulean Is Lovely”

Available for the first time on vinyl is the complete OLYMPIA THEATRE, PARIS, FRANCE 5/3/72 show from the Grateful Dead’s legendary Europe ‘72 Tour. 6-LP, 180-Gram, Limited Edition of 10,000 worldwide.

Of the twenty-two performances on the famed Europe '72 tour, the first night in Paris on 5/3/72 has always been considered one of the best. This is proven by the fact that four songs from this concert were included on the seventeen-track, seminal platinum-selling Europe '72 album.

Featuring an “Other One” that comes out of Truckin' and weaves in and out of other thematic and deep-space jams, as well as a side trip to Me And Bobby McGee, this is some of the Grateful Dead's best, most inspired improvisation. The performance also includes five songs sung by Pigpen on what would be his final tour, including a massive Good Lovin' which allows Pigpen to do what he does best: hold the audience in the palm of his hand while they hang on his every word. Mixed from the 16-track analog master tapes by Jeffrey Norman and mastered for vinyl by GRAMMY ® Award-winning engineer David Glasser. Produced for release by David Lemieux.


Side A – Bertha, Me and My Uncle, Mr. Charlie, Sugaree / Side B - Black-Throated Wind, Chinatown Shuffle, China Cat Sunflower, I Know You Rider
Side C - Beat It On Down The Line, He's Gone, Next Time You See Me / Side D - Playing In The Band, Tennessee Jed

Another grunge metal classic! Gruntruck's bloodlines were impeccable; the band was founded (where else?) in Seattle by two members of the pioneering grunge band Skin Yard, vocalist Ben McMillan and drummer Norman Scott. While in Skin Yard, Scott also briefly joined Soundgarden, and collaborated with Chris Cornell on a lesser-known band, the low frequency power trio Bass Truck. Lead guitarist Tommy Niemeyer from metal thrashers The Accüsed and bassist Tim Paul, previously of PDX hardcore punks Final Warning, rounded out the initial, classic line-up, which is what you hear on this 1992 record, which was produced by the band and fellow ex-Skin Yard member (and go-to grunge producer) Jack Endino. Previously released on vinyl only in Europe and Brazil (!), original copies of Push are virtually impossible to find, which is too bad; this record offered a mesmerizing mix of atonal riffage and hooky tunes like the single "Tribe." This is its first-ever domestic vinyl release, and we're giving it a real "Push"; we've added two never-on-LP tracks ("Crucifunkin'" and "Flesh Fever") that the band recorded in between the sessions for Push and their first album, Inside Yours, and expanded the release to a killer 2-LP set (sequenced by Jack Endino himself) housed inside a gatefold jacket. Clear with opaque red and yellow swirl vinyl, limited to 2500 copies, exclusive for RSD Drops 2021.

This year we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Hooverphonics’ debut album A New Stereophonc Sound. Music On Vinyl in cooperation with Sony Music and Alex Callier are releasing four Hooverphonic remix EPs. Each represents a Hooverphonic album: A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular, Blue Wonder Power Milk, The Magnificent Tree and Presents Jackie Cane.

Alex Callier selected the best remixes of their songs for each remix EP. The first, A New Stereophonic Sound Spectacular remixes is available as part of RSD Drops. Only 2000 individually numbered copies on solid purple are pressed. (The other three are scheduled to be released later in 2021.

Hooverphonic are a Belgian band that formed in October 1995. Though originally categorized as a trip hop group, they quickly expanded their sound to the point where they could no longer be described as a lone genre, but rather encompass alternative, electronica, electropop, rock, and a mixture of others. The band originally called themselves Hoover, but later changed their name to Hooverphonic after discovering other groups were already using the Hoover name and to avoid any legal issues with the vacuum cleaner company.

Since their formation, Hooverphonic's lineup consisted of bassist Alex Callier, guitarist Raymond Geerts, and various lead singers. Geike Arnaert (1997–2008, 2020-present) has recently re-joined the band.

Hooverphonic were supposed to represent Belgium at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. However, the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They will instead represent Belgium in the Eurovision Song Contest 2021.

The band achieved international recognition through the inclusion of the Stereophonic track "2Wicky" on the soundtrack to Bernardo Bertolucci's 1996 film Stealing Beauty. "2Wicky" also appeared on the soundtracks of I Know What You Did Last Summer and Heights. The track's main riff is sampled from Isaac Hayes' recording of the 1960s hit "Walk On By".

“Inhaler” is, not least thanks to those wonderfully fanning out guitars, still a missed world hit.

Remix duties are fulfilled by drum ‘n bass producer Dj Pulse, owner of the Creative Wax label, and the late Hector Zazou. Both gave some LTJ Bukem-esque vibes to “Inhaler” and “2 Wicky”.

Furthermore, Alex Callier and the band re-recorded both songs and added some extra strings to “Inhaler”.

Side B: 1. Inhaler (Drum ‘N’ Orch Remix By Hoover) 2. Inhaler (Mr Pink Remix By Hector Zazou)

Bobo Jenkins’ first recordings came out on the Chess, Fortune and Boxer labels in the 1950s. This 12 song LP compiles his 1970s output of incredibly raw and stripped-down blues. The tracks were recorded using a revolving door of Detroit musicians during late night/all night sessions in Bobo’s makeshift Detroit recording studio/record shop and were originally released on his own Big Star Records. It would come as no surprise to find out that bands like The Cramps and The Gories had copies of these singles in their collections.

Perhaps because bassist Jennifer Finch left the band during the recording sessions, 1996's The Beauty Process--Triple Platinum has never quite gotten its due, but Donita Sparks counts it as her favorite L7 album. It's simultaneously the heaviest record they ever released, and the most varied, with delicate songs like "Me, Myself, and I" and "Moonshine" contrasting with the metal-verging-on-industrial mayhem of "Drama." Twenty-five years is a long time to wait for an L7 album to come out on vinyl: for its overdue debut, Real Gone Music is pressing up 3000 copies for Record Store Day on (what else?) Platinum vinyl and putting 'em inside a jacket with printed inner sleeve. Rawk on!

Contains previously unissued live recordings of unsung tenor saxophone hero Harold Land from The Penthouse in Seattle from 1962, 1964 and 1965 with stellar musicians including Hampton Hawes, Carmell Jones, Buddy Montgomery and Philly Joe Jones. Released in partnership with the Harold Land Estate, the deluxe limited edition, hand-numbered, 180g double LP set is mastered by Kevin Gray of Cohearent Audio. The remastered audio was captured from direct transfers of the original Penthouse's tape reels. Westward Bound! includes an extensive booklet with rare photos; essays by jazz historian Michael Cuscuna, co-producers Zev Feldman and Cory Weeds, and pianist Eric Reed; plus interviews with tenor saxophone giant Joe Lovano and the legendary saxophonist Sonny Rollins.

Land developed his hard bop playing with the Max Roach/Clifford Brown band into a personal, modern style; often rivalling Clifford Brown's instrumental ability with his own inventive and whimsical solos. Born in Houston and grew up in San Diego he started playing at the age of 16. He made his first recording as the leader of the Harold Land All-Stars for Savoy Records in 1949. In 1954 he joined the Clifford Brown/Max Roach Quintet, with whom he was at the forefront of the hard-bop/bebop movement. He moved to Los Angeles in 1955 and played with Curtis Counce, led his own groups, and co-led groups with Bobby Hutcherson, Blue Mitchell, and Red Mitchell.

June - RSD First

Heavy Sun, the soulful, debut from Daniel Lanois and his invigorating new all-star band. Recorded in Los Angeles and Toronto, the album fuses classic gospel and modern electronics, mixing gritty, human textures with crisp, digital accents and lush, swirling atmospherics to create a sound that's at once warmly familiar and boldly unexpected. The arrangements here are spacious and dreamy, anchored by rich, righteous organ topped with airy falsetto and mesmerizing four-part harmony, and the writing is buoyant and soulful to match, tapping into the shared uncertainty of the human condition to offer hope, comfort, and connection at a time when all three run in desperately short supply. For RSD Drops this year comes the vinyl debut of this critically acclaimed album. Pressed on Translucent Ruby inside Opaque Orchid colored vinyl, and limited to a worldwide run of 4000.  Includes a download card.

Peggy Lee was in top form in 1955, in every aspect of her career. As a vocalist, she was at her peak. Pete Kelly’s Blues (her best acting role) and Lady And The Tramp (she co-wrote six songs and provided the voices for four characters) were both set to be released. That same year, she recorded 49 selections as radio transcriptions for the World Program Service. These recordings were not released to the public, but used by radio stations with unexpected time to fill. The music is more jazz-oriented than many of her Decca recordings of the time. Lee’s cool but inwardly heated voice is joined by frequent collaborators, pianist Gene DiNovi, guitarist Bill Pitman, Bob Whitlock or Don Prell on bass, drummer Larry Bunker, Ramon “Ray” Rivera on congas, harpist Stella Castellucci, and trumpeter Pete Candoli. This series compiles the best selections from those 1955 recordings, beginning with 14 tunes on this first volume. The recordings were mastered for vinyl at Infrasonic Mastering and pressed at Furnace Record Pressing on color vinyl, Exclusively as part of RSD Drops.

The second and last album from Richard Butler's post-Psychedelic Furs project arguably was as good as anything his first band put out…this 1997 release sported the Furs' arty blend of post-punk and glam embroidered with some well-placed electronica and alternative touches. Best of all--it rocks! And Butler's distinctive vocals have never sounded better in all their snarling tenderness. Never before on LP, our reissue comes in a jacket with printed inner sleeve containing white with black swirl vinyl that matches the album cover.

The project was born out of Lupe pulling a beat off of Twitter, posted by Kaelin Ellis with the caption, "get this to Lupe". Lupe recorded a rap over the beat and posted the new recording back on Twitter within an hour of Kaelin posting the instrumental. The two conversed over social media and agreed to work on more music, which led to the HOUSE EP being turned around within 3-4 weeks while quarantined during the Covid pandemic. The project features narration from longtime friend of Lupe and international fashion designer and entrepreneur, Virgil Abloh (Louis Vuitton, Off White). The title of the EP is HOUSE because they recorded the entire project while in the house (due to Covid). Artwork for the EP is an original painting of Philip Johnson's iconic Glass House, and liner notes were written by the painter's son who is a good friend of Lupe’s. Previously available on cassette.

It's an incredible career and his musical diversity shines on this score. Fun fact: People Under the Stairs opened at #1 on the box office chart and stayed in the Top 10 for a month.

Angel Dream is a special reimagining of the album She’s The One to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its original release. This also brings to a close the celebration of Tom Petty’s masterpiece Wildflowers, as most of the songs on this album were recorded during the same time period.  She’s The One included some songs that were left off the original Wildflowers album, recently included in the Wildflowers & All The Rest re-issue. To take the place of those songs, four previously unreleased songs have been added here – two Petty originals (“105 Degrees” and “One of Life’s Little Mysteries”), a cover of JJ Cale’s “Thirteen Days”, and the instrumental “French Disconnection”.  An extended version of “Supernatural Radio” is also included. The album has been remixed & remastered and brand new cover art commissioned – emphasizing that this is a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers album, rather than a soundtrack album.  This very special version for RSD Drops is pressed on cobalt blue vinyl.

The Truth is widely regarded as one of Prince’s most underappreciated hidden gems. Originally released as an accompaniment to the 1998 triple album Crystal Ball, which marked the first time that Prince released an album totally independently, The Truth was also the first Prince album to be labeled “acoustic,” though it does contain electronic instruments and elements, and it gave listeners an unprecedented chance to hear his songwriting and voice in a stripped-down presentation. This release as part of RSD Drops marks the first time The Truth is available on vinyl, with gorgeous, foil-embossed artwork designed by Prince’s long-time art director Steve Parke.

Available for the first time on vinyl for RSD Drops 2021, The Lost Philip Glass Sessions by The Raybeats is a memento of a singular moment in New York's cultural history: a time where it felt like anything could happen, and it did. “The Raybeats represented the intersection of multiple streams of creativity, where new music and popular culture were colliding,” says Philip Glass, who joined the band in Green St. Studio along with Michael Riesman and Kurt Munkacsi on June 4th, 1982. “When we think of music and New York of that period, we think of groups like The Raybeats.” The band didn't know what to expect when they walked into the studio on that fateful day, and they wouldn't realize what they had until thirty years later. Philip Glass was already amassing an international audience at the time, and his addition to these songs was just another moment of creative spontaneity.

It comes to record stores as part of RSD Drops, for the first time on vinyl.

RECENTLY DISCOVERED IN THEIR EXTENSIVE 1970s MULTITRACK TAPE ARCHIVE AND EXTRACTED FROM THE ORIGINAL TAPES.

NEVER BEFORE ISSUED IN ANY FORMAT.

PRODUCED BY THE RESIDENTS.

Following the enthusiastic critical and commercial response to their pREServed reissue series, which has produced hundreds of previously unheard recordings from the band’s master tape archive, The Residents now explore the original multitrack tapes for their seminal 1970s output.

Produced under lockdown conditions, the group present sixteen never before heard alternate versions, unreleased curios and long-forgotten oddities.

Includes an eight-minute concentrate of the legendary “Rusty Coathangers For The Doctor” tape, plus a demo and alternate rendering of the classic “Satisfction” single.

Part of the ongoing pREServed reissue series, Leftovers Again?!? is, we are told, a small taste of further album-by-album multitrack explorations the group intend to present at some as-yet undisclosed point in the future.

Heir to Despair is the 11th studio album by Sigh. While the previous album Graveward (2015) was rather symphonic orchestral stuff, Heir to Despair is pointing at the completely opposite direction. Heavily inspired by old, crazy progressive bands like Brainticket, Embryo, Agitation Free, Between, Gentle Giant, Os Mutantes, Modulo 1000, Black Widow, etc., Heir to Despair turned out to be a heavy, psychedelic and exotic album.

The contributions of J Dilla to the world of hip-hop can't be overstated, and nowhere is his legacy more apparent than his work as a member of Slum Village. A founding member of the trio, alongside rappers T3 and Baatin, Dilla provided the group's distinctly esoteric, free-wheeling sound. By the time Fantastic Volume II hit Dilla was well on his way to his status as a hip-hop legend having produced cuts for Common, Busta Rhymes, Erykah Badu, A Tribe Called Quest and many more. Fantastic Volume 2 had fans and many critics saying that Slum Village, and Dilla in particular, may “single-handedly save rap music.” Perhaps that statement is hyperbole but many consider Fantastic Volume II to be Slum Village’s finest work. Ne'Astra Media Group presents the album in a 20th anniversary edition with a deluxe obi-wrap and an exclusive one-time-only Golden Pearl Splatter vinyl pressing as part of RSD Drops.

For the first time ever, all of the Small Faces classic Decca and Immediate singles from 1965-1969 are included on one LP. Every 7” single A-side is here: UK & European No.1 – ‘All Or Nothing’ - Top 20 hits – ‘What'Cha Gonna Do About It’, ‘Sha La La La Lee’, ‘Hey Girl’, ‘My Mind's Eye’, ‘Here Come The Nice’, ‘Lazy Sunday’, ‘The Universal’ – USA & worldwide hit singles ‘Itchycoo Park’ and ‘Tin Soldier’ – and more! All have been newly remastered to vinyl from the original Decca and Immediate master tapes by Nick Robbins at Soundmastering Studios in London under the supervision of surviving Small Faces member Kenney Jones (who also pens a touching introductory sleeve note). All the correct single versions (including USA-only 7” ‘Mad John’ from UK no.1 LP ‘Ogdens’ Nut Gone Flake’) have been included and sound incredible in their original mono mixes! The LP sleeve features previously unseen photography from the two legendary photographers most associated with the band during their career across the two record labels – Tony Gale (Decca, front cover) and Gered Mankowitz (Immediate, back cover).

Pressed on red, white and blue “Mod” splatter-vinyl and limited to 3,000 copies. Each LP will also come with a colour postcard with the LP cover artwork, hand-signed by Small Faces drummer Kenney Jones on one side and a facsimile of a Decca band member biog on the other side. The Small Faces ended in 1969 when Steve Marriott left to form Humble Pie and Kenney Jones, Ronnie Lane and Ian McLagan formed the Faces with Rod Stewart and Ronnie Lane. Members also later went onto playing with The Who, Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones, and many, many more. They are one of the most highly regarded UK groups from the sixties, a fact recently endorsed by tributes for a Small Faces boxset from David Bowie, Robert Plant, Paul Weller, Nick Mason, Glen Matlock, Chad Smith, Paul Stanley, Rick Nielsen, Peter Frampton, John Lodge, Russell Mael and many, many more. The Small Faces were, as Pete Townsend lovingly called them: “A place of joy in the early UK music scene. A complete delight.” Complete Greatest Hits!

In December 1974, more than 6000 fans gathered in the Reims Cathedral for the first live “pop” concert to be held in a European church. It sparked so much controversy that after this show the Vatican forbade any pop performance in a Catholic church.

This legendary concert from the iconic Tangerine Dream line up has never been released before, but for RSD Drops it’s available on a double vinyl release (Set 1 and Set 2, each on one). The deluxe gatefold jacket features inner sleeves printed with interviews of attendees and press clips, and the package contains a 16-page booklet. The vinyl is printed with a reproduction of Reims’ stained glass, for a psychedelic/hypnotic effect.

The music world lost a true pioneer in September 2020 with the passing of Toots Hibbert. His influence on reggae cannot be understated; he was not only a key figure in the development of the genre, he was also among the first to utilize the word itself in a song title which lead to the popularization of the genre.

Funky Kingston features "Pressure Drop", named by Rolling Stone as one of the 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time. This international hit influenced (and was covered by) The Clash, The Specials, The Selecter and more. To celebrate Toots’ lifetime of accomplishments and achievements Get On Down presents Funky Kingston in a special one-time only turquoise & cream white split colored pressing as part of RSD Drops.

For RSD Drops 2021, Tune-Yards’ 2011 breakthrough second album W H O K I L L will receive a limited edition pressing on multi-color splatter vinyl to celebrate its 10th anniversary.

The album, W H O K I L L, marks a time when everything came together into one cohesive whole, recorded in a studio and influenced heavily by Merrill Garbus’ moving to Oakland, California. She and Nate Brenner made an album that delivered on her early promise. Lyrically, Garbus explores constructs of femininity and sexuality with the threat of violence that lurks on the streets where she now lives, while the energy of their show has been translated perfectly to record.

Sometimes the demo recording of a song has a vibe that cannot be duplicated. Whether that first recording is a voice memo on your phone or half haphazardly recorded with one mic in the room, there’s an undeniable charm to these recordings. If you spend some time listening to them, when the “real” recording is made, many times one has a hard time letting go of the demo. The medical term for this is called “Demoitis”. On that note, Big Crown Records is proud to present Demoitis Vol. 1, a release that is easily a decade in the making.

The songwriting process can be cathartic, especially if you're trying to make sense of things in your life through the music. Lady Wray wrote and recorded the demo version of “Guilty” just days after her brother was incarcerated. The rawness of what she was going through will surely send a chill through the listener’s soul.

Some of these demos were recorded to pitch the music to the label or producer. Bobby Oroza’s “This Love” demo (originally called “Breaktru”) is him at home with an MPC, recording music to show to the guys at Timmion in hopes of working together. Brainstory’s version of “Breathe” also falls into this category. There are cases where someone writes a song for an artist and actually sings it as a reference for them to learn the tune. “Will I Get Off Easy” & “Regenerate” were both originally sung by Leon Michels for Lee Fields to learn and record them later. Of course no one can hold a candle to Mr Lee Fields’ vocals, but the El Michels versions of these are killers in their own right. Again, this is what this record is about, not better or worse, but enjoying all the steps in the process.

Paul Schalda from Paul & The Tall Trees sent us the demos to his sophomore album and they blew us away. When he got in the studio to make the record there was a strong sentiment of sticking close to the demos and trying to recapture that intimacy. On the other side of that coin some of these are a testament to the production. Liam Bailey’s “Don’t Blame NY” demo is something of a loose freestyle that comes across as a Jazz number. It is always interesting to see what twists and turns a song takes from inception to the finished version.

We hope you enjoy Demotis Vol. 1 as much as we do. It is a pleasure to share this stuff with the world. It is a great listen and we hope it inspires people to write and record more music with whatever means you have of doing so.


1. Lady Wray "Guilty", 2. El Michels Affair "Will I Get Off Easy", 3. Bobby Oroza "Breaktru", 4. Paul & The Tall Trees "Then We'll Wave", 5. Holy Hive "Blue Light", 6. Lee Fields & The Expressions "Lover Man", 7. Brainstory "The Promise of Grace (Interlude), 8. Brainstory "Peter Pan", 9. Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band "Round & Round", 10. The Shacks "For Real", 11.

"19 Party Instrumentals for Grown Folks." Compilation of partytime dance tunes from Memphis TN & North Mississippi. Produced, recorded and mixed by Bruce Watson (Fat Possum/Big Legal Mess), each side is dedicated to the location in which it was recorded. Side A - "Memphis Side" and Side B - "Mississippi Side" consisting of artists such as producer/engineer Matt Ross-Spang (Jason Isbell, John Prine, Elvis Presley), Jimbo Mathus (Squirrel Nut Zippers, Andrew Bird), Matt Patton (Drive by Truckers). Producer Bruce Watson would hold get-togethers at his studios both in North Mississippi and more recently Memphis, TN to record his musician/friends in an "anything goes" atmosphere. Pulling inspiration from old 45's from Bruce's personal collection, he'd capture the musicians recording together on the fly, trying to conjure some of the hoodoo from those old recordings while adding a bit of hoodoo of his own. About fifteen musicians in all make up the roster for these recordings that were made over a six year period.

Other Music was an influential and uncompromising New York City record store that was vital to the city’s early 2000s indie music scene. But when the store is forced to close its doors due to rent increases, the homogenization of urban culture, and the shift from CDs to downloadable and streaming music, a cultural landmark is lost. The documentary captures the record store’s vital role in the musical and cultural life of the city. The soundtrack highlights the artists whose careers it helped popularize with exclusive vinyl tracks by Vampire Weekend, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sharon Van Etten, Yo La Tengo, Bill Callahan, Gary Wilson, Beans, Revl9n and Animal Collective.

FIRST TIME EVER ON VINYL! We had a blast working on a tribute to one of our favorite films of all time - the 1984 cult classic Repo Man - written and directed by Alex Cox, and featuring Harry Dean Stanton and Emilio Estevez. The original soundtrack celebrated the southern California punk movement of the late ‘70s/early ‘80s with bands Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Suicidal Tendencies, The Plugz, and Iggy Pop. We've recruited an outstanding group of artists to cover these now-classic punk tracks, including Those Darlins, Matthew Sweet, Amanda Palmer, Mike Watt, The Tellers, Black Francis, Weekend, Polar Bear Club, Moses Coltrane, New York Rivals, and The Suicide Dolls. This limited-edition RSD release is pressed on glow-in-the-dark vinyl, and features original illustrations inspired by the film from revered rock poster designer Lonny Unitus (Melvins, Guttermouth, Red Hot Chili Peppers). Pressed by hand in the USA.

The second album from wunderkind Jon Crosby and his band/project Vast (a.k.a Visual Audio Sensory Theater), released in 2000, moves more into goth-metal territory (think The Cure or Sisters of Mercy) while retaining some of the exotic elements (e.g. sampling the Bulgarian Voices) of his self-titled debut. But it's really impossible to pigeonhole this headphone-feast of a record; Crosby's gift for creating darkly mesmerizing audio textures is matched by few (Trent Reznor comes to mind), while his glam vocals summon the spirit of David Bowie.

For its LP debut, we've pressed up 2000 serpentine green records and put 'em inside a jacket with printed inner sleeve. Another early 'oughts album long overdue for a vinyl release!

“Reflecting on this batch of songs, outtakes and new compositions written between 1999 and 2005, in Paris, during our stint as Apollo Heights. Me, myself, my brother, and Hayato Nakao took turns playing guitar, bass, whatever. “Reverie” was written in 2001 on 11th September, after I saw a news article about a father in the Middle East, caught in a crossfire trying to shield his son as they squatted on the ground by a wall. Unfortunately, they were both killed. Black sidewalks baby’s left to bleed on the streets. It was probably one of the saddest things I ever saw. “The Gattica Blues”, inspired by Jason from New Kingdom, talks literally about betrayal in a relationship that spanned over five years. A typical love triangle, but sad nonetheless. “Calvary” was written in Paris and based on Christ’s Sermon on the Mount. No matter how much he talked about how He loved the world, they still killed him. “The Colour of Love is Blue” was actually written right out of high school and based on a picture of blue roses drawn by the protagonist in The Bell Jar and described as ‘being love’. “The Butcher” was based on a conversation with someone in an abusive relationship who chose to stay because she believed that the person or the abuser showing his love by beating her. No one could tell her there was nothing further from the truth until it was too late. All sad for tomorrow maybe, bad choices maybe, but such is the way of being creative and getting inspired by the mundane chores of making bad decisions on a one-way street.” – Daniel Chavis, 2021

20th anniversary remastered reissue of M. Ward's sophomore album.  M. Ward's second solo enterprise verifies the artist as one of those few songwriters who stand between the cracks of time, where he spins a hallucinatory, new universe out of old-world roots. Indeed, there's a real down-home, unpolished luster to End of Amnesia, both in execution and in songwriting, that gives it a timeless, old-fashioned pallor. And yet there's also something just slightly off in the songs, a strange, disembodied quality that seems to come at least partly from an ulterior place, be it real or imagined. That attribute is precisely what gives the music such a singular, distinctive sound and vision. Pressed on clear vinyl.

On the completion of the recording of Warpaint’s album The Fool, Andrew Weatherall was given access to the album's master tapes to work on mixes for the finished record. The track “Baby”, along with Warpaint's iconic single “Undertow”, were both mixed by the Guv'nor and appeared on the finished album that was released in 2010.

For the first time ever, this RSD Drops edition brings together all the mixes Weatherall created while working on the project, including a never-before-released finished version of “Jubilee”.

“I remember that one of the main reasons why we wanted Andrew Weatherall to mix the Warpaint album was because we loved his brilliant work on the Primal Scream remix of “Higher Than The Sun”. I know that we discussed this particular track with Emily and she knew it of course and also loved it. I think it was a key reason they agreed to let Andrew do the mix.” - Geoff Travis – Rough Trade Records

The hard-hitting, melodic heavy metal band Alcatrazz celebrate RSD Drops 2021 with the release of a colored double vinyl edition of their latest studio offering, Born Innocent. The 13-track opus, having previously only been available on CD and digital formats and never on vinyl will be a must-have collectible for anyone who considers themselves a fan of rock (pun intended!)

Their first studio venture since 1986’s Dangerous Game. Alongside the unique vocal prowess and range of star frontman and founding member Graham Bonnet, Born Innocent also features fellow founding members Jimmy Waldo and Gary Shea. And from the classic album art, featuring the mighty rock itself, Born Innocent is a journey into the sort of heavy, melodic and supremely articulated hard rock that is a cornerstone of the likes of Rainbow and the Michael Schenker Group, territory Alcatrazz successfully strode in the ‘80s before going on hiatus.

Born Innocent was produced by Jimmy Waldo with Giles Lavery and mixed and mastered by Andy Haller and features many former stars from Graham's long career. Guest appearances include Chris Impellitteri, who wrote the music and played all guitars on the arpeggio-powered “Born Innocent”, with Bonnet’s vocals soaring to old-school heights, as did Bob Kulick for the majestic “I Am The King”. Virtuoso Japanese guitar maestro Nozomu Wakai similarly wrote and played guitars on the double-kick steel-plated Irish warrior ode “Finn McCool”, while the six-string legend that is Steve Vai wrote “Dirty Like The City”, with Bonnet once again powerfully hitting notes that are beyond the business of most humans.

As fans will immediately hear, Alcatrazz are back doing what only they can do with Born Innocent, delivering quality hard rock with genuine storyteller lyrics, virtuoso performances and an added layer of modern ‘heavy’ that underscores the melodic excellence. Don’t miss out on this piece of rock history.

New West Records is proud to present All Them Witches Live On The Internet.

Raleigh NC’s The Backsliders were formed in 1992 by Steve Howell and Chip Robinson, rock ‘n’ roll dudes playing country-tinged tunes with just the right amount of Don’t Give A Damn attitude. The original line-up of Chip Robinson (lead vocal, guitar, electric 12-string guitar), Steve Howell (harmony vocal, lead guitar), Danny Kurtz (bass), Jeff “JD” Dennis (drums), came back together in 2012 with new bandmate Greg Rice (keyboards). With engineer John Plymale of Overdub Lane at the board, they wasted no time in recording the RALEIGHWOOD (EP), featuring their hardcore honky-tonk and unmistakable swagger. Steve Howell describes the writing of these songs: “Headlights” was written in the spirit of late ‘60s/early ‘70s California Country Rock with peyote and red wine as the chief inspirations. “You Can Be My Baby Now” is the haze of a long weekend listening to Big Star and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. “Nightfalls” was written after being haunted by a ghost that never told me her name. Danny and JD kicked it up into the southern soul stratosphere. “Forever and Ever” is the result of Neil Young and Crazy Horse running thick through my teenage veins. I can still taste it! “Twang”, well... nothing says attitude better than a twangy Gretsch guitar right between the eyes.” The attitude of the original lineup is still there, though they may not be the same band that burned up the road all those years before, they still have something to say, something to prove, and something to be.

Proceeds from this release, and three others in this series support The Shalom Project (an organization that supports NC families in need).
This is a regional release and though it’s available to all RSD-participating stores, it will primarily be available at stores in North Carolina.

Side 1: “Headlights”, “You Can Be My Baby”

This recording features a full performance by great musicians at their peak, providing a "you are there" experience of the excitement of great music and an appreciative crowd. Mastered from the original tape reels by Kevin Gray, the limited-edition 180g 3LP set includes an extensive booklet with rare photos, plus interviews with Carlos Garnett and Cecil McBee. Award-winning arts journalist and critic Mark Stryker contributes the main essay alongside remembrances by American journalist, educator, author, activist and friend of Roy Brooks Herb Boyd, alto saxophone legend Charles McPherson (who grew up with Roy Brooks), Louis Hayes (who got Roy the gig with Horace Silver) and more. The project came about as a desire by Reel to Real Recordings to make a positive contribution to Black Lives Matter. Understanding is our celebration of the talent, courage and spirit of the Black musicians who created a timeless and universal art, with the recognition that the injustices of 50 years ago are still with us. Proceeds will go directly to The Detroit Sound Conservancy. The album is produced with the cooperation of Cecil McBee and Carlos Garnett and the estates of Roy Brooks, Harold Mabern and Woody Shaw.

About the artist: In his younger days in Detroit, Brooks started off drumming with Yusef Lateef. He played with Horace Silver from 1959-64, including on the album Song for My Father; in 1963 he released his first album as a leader. Following this he freelanced in New York City through the 1960s and early 1970s, playing with Lateef again (1967-70), Sonny Stitt, Lee Morgan, Dexter Gordon, Chet Baker, Junior Cook, Blue Mitchell, Charles McPherson, Pharoah Sanders (1970), Wes Montgomery, Dollar Brand, Jackie McLean, James Moody (1970-72), Charles Mingus (1972-73), and Milt Jackson. His 1970 album The Free Slave featured Cecil McBee and Woody Shaw. Later in 1970 he joined Max Roach's ensemble M'Boom, and in 1972 put together the ensemble The Artistic Truth.

Soundtrack to the Emmy award-winning HBO TV drama starring Mark Ruffalo. Comprises original score by Harold Budd alongside curated archive selections used in the show. At the time the show originally aired in summer 2020, this was the first new music to be heard from Budd in over six years. Tragically it also ended up being some of the last, as he passed away in December at the age of 84. The Guardian wrote “Harold Budd's sublime music was a gateway to a brighter world. It can't be contained with the term 'ambient', it is a guide to dreamworlds and a haven in tough times. His albums are a gateway to a beyond and an invitation to exist, however briefly, above yourself”. Pressed on clear vinyl.

Del Casher may not be a household name, but you’ve undoubtedly heard his music. As a member of the famous Wrecking Crew, he’s played on many hundreds of recordings that have provided the soundtrack to our lives. He played on the Lawrence Welk Show, recorded Frank Zappa’s first demo, backed Elvis Presley, and built guitars with Les Paul. His many inventions include the Wah-Wah pedal and the Ecco-Fonic, influencing the development of electric guitar playing. In 1976, Casher was commissioned to write and record a soundtrack for Italian Stallion, a re-branding of the 1970 softcore porn film "The Party at Kitty and Stud’s”, which saw Sylvester Stallone's first on-screen appearance. While even Stallone called the film “horrendous”, the soundtrack for Italian Stallion stands on its own as a musical masterpiece. Casher recruited some of the best musicians around, including fellow members of the Wrecking Crew, to lay down one of the funkiest, grooviest movie soundtracks of the ‘70s. Over 40 years later, with the help of ORG Music, Del Casher dug up his original master tapes and assembled a record’s worth of material for the soundtrack’s first ever release. Italian Stallion will make its long overdue debut with a vinyl pressing as part of RSD Drops.

If Dave Davies did nothing more than create the slash-and-burn power chords of the Kinks' "You Really Got Me" he'd earn a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As it is, the younger Davies brother has accomplished much more. His first studio album in over 20 years finds Ray's frequently overshadowed sibling reviving that rather charming '70s device, the concept album--the plot here revolving around extraterrestrial visitation and brain implantation. Davies brings the idea of benign aliens a little closer in a collection that recalls some of the best trends of the '60s and '70s. He uses a rock template that harkens back to post-Tommy Who ("The Lie"), Mott the Hoople ("Whose Fooling Who"), and Deep Purple ("It Ain't Over 'Till It's Done"), sounding rather anachronistic as a result. The songs are engaging and show Davies to be a writer of considerable skill and wit, but they're somewhat stuck in the way-back machine.

1. Who's Foolin' Who 2. It Ain't over, 'Till Its Done! 3. The Lie! 4. Let Me Be 5. Displaced Person 6. Rock You, Rock Me 7. Flowers in the Rain 8. Fortis Green 9. Why?!! 10. True Phenomenon 11. Bug 12. De-Bug 13. Life After Life (Transformation)

Miles Davis had a deep love and respect for boxing, seeing deep parallels between “the sweet science” and his own relationship with music. One of Miles’ favorites of his own recordings was the 1971 soundtrack to the Bill Cayton documentary about Jack Johnson, and he was inspired by the political and racial subtext of the legendary boxer’s saga.  Culled from the celebrated expanded project The Complete Jack Johnson Sessions released in 2003, and name-checking a number of pugilistic legends (“Ali,” “Sugar Ray,” “Duran,” “Johnny Bratton”), these funk-infused recordings rock harder than anything else that Miles put to tape. Featuring a sterling line-up of musicians (Wayne Shorter, John McLaughlin, Dave Holland, Keith Jarrett, Herbie Hancock, Jack DeJohnette, Billy Cobham) and a legendary cover photo of Miles in the ring captured by Jim Marshall, the release finds this music issued on vinyl (in brilliant yellow), for general release, for the first time ever. 

Side A 1. “Duran - Take 4” 2. “Sugar Ray” 3. “Johnny Bratton Take 4”
Side B 1. “Ali - Take 3” 2. “Ali - Take 4” 3. “Right Off - Take 11”

Originally released in 1990, Ani DiFranco's first album is so revolutionary that the purveyors of status quo install women's music sections in the dusty corner of their stores in order to hide it. Dorm rooms coast to coast transform into audio dub houses where young women with aching arms scratch out hand-written labels and personal letters like "you have to hear this." These quasi-booking agent and pirate distributors work long into the night purchasing greyhound tickets for a certain young Folksinger to come play at their school. Today. Folk and poetry prevail. Vulnerable stories arm themselves as powerful songs on Ani DiFranco's self-titled first solo record. Ani's voice is rich and eloquent. Her guitar moves like an appendage. From cockroach pus to abortion rights the record doesn't flinch. This singer/songwriter folk mecca contains songs with an epic stage life such as, "Both Hands," "Out of Habit," "The Slant," and "Fire Door." All of the tracks embody the love and humor inherent in Ani's music. Thematically this record gives a face to feminism that is both beautiful and accessible to anyone. The stories focus on relationships and humanity. We sit in the waiting room of an abortion clinic after facing an angry crowd in "Lost Woman Song." "Talk to Me Now" and "The Story" confront the inequality of the sexes in a man's world. The love songs examine relationships with the same discernment as the political ones. "Both Hands" is a hands down favorite among any DiFranco fan. "Every Angle" infuses the thrill of protest with the joy of a crush, "thoughts of you are picketing my brain/ they refuse to work such long hours without rest/ in unstable conditions at best." And the unforgettably poetic and guitarific, "Fire Door" is a heartfelt treat in its first studio recording.
