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.

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. He was a member of the famous Wrecking Crew, played on Lawrence Welk, recorded Frank Zappa’s first demo, and even backed Elvis Presley on film. His inventions include the Wah-Wah pedal and the Ecco-Fonic, influencing the development of electric guitar playing. In 1978, Casher was impressed by Bill Conti's top selling score for Rocky, and set out to make an album with original compositions of disco and jazz/funk inspired by the film. With a series of tunes written, he gathered some of the top studio players in Hollywood including Billy Preston, Stan Worth, and members of Johnny Carson's Tonight Show band. The working title for this album in the making was called “Music Inspired By Rocky And Other Compositions”. A film company who had acquired the rights to Sylvester Stallone's 1970 debut "The Party At Kitty And Stud's" heard the music and immediately recognized it as the perfect fit for their rebranded “Italian Stallion” film release. Though the score was never released outside of the film, it generated lots of interest in the early 2000’s when the internet became a widespread phenomenon, and fans began recording the audio off of the film themselves. The soundtrack for Italian Stallion stands on its own as a musical masterpiece. 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, exclusively for RSD 2021.

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.

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.

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.

A 2017 surprise reunion show at LA’s Emo Night and the release of one new song the same year have kept the fans of From First to Last excited and this exclusive colored vinyl pressing for RSD Drops 2021 will be just what the doctor ordered.

Bobbie’s journey from country singer-songwriter to blue eyed soul diva stopped off at a hitherto unknown destination along the way. Before she arrived at Muscle Shoals to work her magic with the late great Rick Hall, Bobbie cut a laid back album of classic and contemporary jazz tunes that was abandoned before it had chance to see the light of day. This was a shame, as Bobbie proves herself as adept in this genre as in any other. This self-produced collection first saw the light of day on the Bobbie Gentry boxset, but this lost album deserves to have its own separate release and what better format than vinyl? The set exudes a sophisticated and intimate late-night vibe mostly featuring Bobbie alone with her guitar accompanied by a bass player; occasionally there is a whisper of strings from Jimmie Haskell who famously composed the cello and violin arrangement on Ode to Billie Joe. Gentry fans will find much to love in Bobbie’s short lived but brilliant turn as a jazz singer. The original 8 tracks to be supplemented by the ‘I Didn’t Know’ and ‘Hushabye Mountain’ demos recorded around the same time, this LP also features the previously unreleased Hushabye Mountain [alternate version].

In celebration of the album's 20th anniversary, M-Theory Audio presents the first-ever vinyl release of Determination, from God Forbid. The band was a major player within the New Wave of American Heavy Metal movement of the early '00s. In addition to an appearance on Ozzfest, the group logged many miles on the road touring alongside legacy acts such as Slayer and Anthrax, as well as scene contemporaries such as Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, and Hatebreed. God Forbid disbanded several years ago, but guitarist Doc Coyle has also remained a prominent member of the heavy metal community through his involvement in the band, Bad Wolves. This new issue of the record will also include an expanded layout with new liner notes from Doc Coyle, and rare photos and memorabilia. The original 2001 release of Determination”was the band's first release through Century Media Records, but M-Theory Audio's new issue will mark the album's first-ever vinyl release, and will also include the bonus track, “Mind Eraser”.

In retrospect, Just-Ice clearly saw the movement into a new school of hip-hop as artists like Run DMC and LL Cool J were moving towards mainstream commercial success. The release serves as a punctuation mark at the end of the old school of hip-hop with production by none other than Kurtis Mantronik of acclaimed electronic hip-hop group Mantronix.

Previously unreleased recording from the legendary multi- instrumentalist Kirk, cut direct from tape and issued as a 200g premium pressing with Gearbox’s famous production values. Kirk’s influence and following reaches far beyond Jazz. Hendrix idolized him and it’s easy to see why. His appetite for ripping up the rulebook has brought kudos and admirers from all sides, giving him a status and respect that ensures an unearthed, never before released recording such as this added importance.

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 Lillingtons are best known for their catchy tunes about the paranormal, but twenty years ago they surprised us all with the release of The Backchannel Broadcast, an album of high adventure with songs about the Wild West and Russian Spies.  The vinyl for this masterpiece has been out of print for 15+ years, so we figured RSD Drops 2021 was the ideal time to celebrate the anniversary.  For this limited release we’re pressing the album on colored vinyl, including a retro tour poster, and the band mysteriously requested we make 641 copies of this special record.  641?  It’s probably some cryptic message to the mothership.

Love, led by the brilliant and complicated Arthur Lee, is considered one of the most influential American rock bands of all time. The 2015 reissue of their album Reel to Real showed the band at the height of their rock/soul powers, and included twelve previously-unreleased outtakes from the original sessions. This special release features five of those tracks on vinyl for the first time, including three original Lee compositions virtually unknown before the 2015 reissue: the sweet and soulful “You Gotta Feel It”; a catchy rock-pop tune called “I Gotta Remember”; and “Do It Yourself”, a blast of high-energy funk driven by Lee's strutting vocals. The EP also includes the original version of “Everybody's Gotta Live” (recently featured in the film 'Jojo Rabbit' and covered on Mac Miller's posthumous album Circles) as well as a full-band performance of that song and an alternate take of “Singing Cowboy”.

Recorded live at Club Soda in Montreal, Canada on September 8, 2001.
When headbanger historians look back on the important heavy metal and hard rock bands that were active during the '70s, Mahogany Rush's name doesn't come up nearly as often as Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Kiss, Van Halen, Judas Priest, Blue Öyster Cult or Aerosmith -- and that is regrettable because Frank Marino led one of the '70s' most exciting hard rock/metal outfits. Mahogany Rush is, without question, underrated.

To some he's the godfather, to others he's the king. Long before bedroom recording became an aesthetic choice, R. Stevie Moore built a legend of pop experimentalism, home recording, and mystic curmudgeonry. Equal parts songwriter, improviser, composer, producer, filmmaker, artist, and comedy writer, the self-taught Tennessean polymath has released hundreds of homemade albums since the '60s--and inspired a thousand times more. Rather than pose and slither in the music biz, Moore opted for a more genuine life and a spot on the staff at legendary indie radio station WFMU, sharing Bedroom Radio with the world. His independent streak extends to his record releases, the R. Stevie Moore Cassette Club successful and long-lasting enough that it became the R. Stevie Moore CD-R Club. By refusing to settle into any one genre or style, Moore has always dedicated himself to eccentric ideas and passions whether around the world or focused into his home. And as Moore now eases into a well-deserved retirement, ON EARTH stands as a powerful statement, an intimate companion, and a goofy guide through a storied career. Ranging all the way back to 1976's classic Phonography, the double-disc retrospective collects a full suite of dazzling power pop, psychedelia, and indie rock, and opens the gateway to the ultimate cult DIY hero.
Documentary, “Cool Daddio: The Second Youth of R. Stevie Moore.” came out on R. Stevie Moore in 2020.

For fans of Gary Wilson, Arthur Russell, Daniel Johnston, Beat Happening, Mac DeMarco, Tin Pan Alley to Frank Zappa (the angular synth lines of "I Wish I Could Sing"), from Roy Wood of the Move ("I've Begun to Fall in Love") to Sparks and the Bonzo Dog Band. Other songs are inspired by Todd Rundgren, Brian Wilson, Syd Barrett (the brilliantly titled "Wayne Wayne Go Away"), Cheap Trick, and XTC.

*Limited edition pressing / Double Black Vinyl With Baby Pink Pink Splatter / Gatefold / Hype Sticker

Since 1966 R. Stevie Moore has recorded nearly 2,000 songs on over 400 very original homemade double albums of alarmingly idiosyncratic variety and styles, often considered a seminal pioneer in the DIY ethic

Made his first home recording in 1966

A New York Times article referenced Moore as the progenitor of "bedroom pop"

XTC founder Andy Partridge said of Moore's work: "What beauty, what invention."

AllMusic's Stewart Mason summarized Moore's body of work as a "one of a kind" mixture of "classic pop influences, arty experimentalism, idiosyncratic lyrics, wild stylistic left turns, and homemade rough edges."

“Although his work generally takes this humorously abstract approach, it can be straightforward, even gentle.” NEW YORK ROCKER : JULY-AUGUST 1980

“Everything he does is one-of-a-kind, because Stevie gets bored quickly. Much of his musical and lyrical content is characterised by a quirky cynicism. He also has a highly sophisticated sense of melody, again without following formulas.” NJArtform

Rolling Stone listed the original release of one of his albums among the fifty most important indie releases ever. Some of those tracks are featured on this release.


1. “Why Should I Love You” 2. “Chantilly Lace” 3. “Cool Daddio” 4. “Don't Let Me Go to the Dogs” 5. “I Love You Too Much To Bother You” 6. “Teen Routines” 7. “Play”

One of the very rare chances – quite possibly the only chance - to listen to the genius of Ennio Morricone engaging with the jazz musical language. His soundtrack for the film The Blue-Eyed Bandit (Il Bandito Dagli Occhi Azzurri by Alfredo Giannetti, 1980) is marked by the very singular 5/4 time which creates a relentless rhythm that perfectly matches the crime atmosphere of the film. This new edition of The Blue-eyed Bandit is part of the Morricone Segreto series by CAM Sugar and it is remastered from the original tapes preserved in the historical CAM Sugar archives. This is the first official vinyl reissue of the score since its original release in 1982 on the Cerberus label. Pressed exclusively for RSD Drops on Blue vinyl.

This project brings together the sophisticated songcraft of singer-songwriter Johnny O'Donnell, the iconoclastic arrangements of Van Dyke Parks, and the genial production touch of Lewis Pesacov into a refreshing and rewarding musical package that deserves the focus that only a 45RPM single provides.

Built upon a relationship formed in Los Angeles over a nearly twenty year period, the songs, penned by O'Donnell, are explorations in harmony, straddling the line between familiar and freakish. The arrangements and production are cinematic and full of drama which befits a production born of the belly of Hollywood. Romance, intrigue, and a touch of the unreal is where the tripartite of musical craftsmen have brewed this potion of melodies.

The two unreleased songs will be available for the first time as a 7" single, exclusively as part of RSD Drops.

PVRIS marked a new era with the release of Use Me in 2020, as frontwoman, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer Lynn Gunn confidently stepped forward as PVRIS’ leader and sole architect. That newfound sense of freedom defined the record, on which Lynn wrote, played the entirely of the guitar, drums, and bass parts, cooked up beats, and of course, sang vocals. Awash in glitchy beat-craft, airy guitars, and spell-binding vocals, the record included 070 Shake collaboration “Use Me,” explosive song “Hallucinations,” plus “Dead Weight,” “Gimme A Minute,” and “Death of Me” all brought to life by producer JT Daly [K. Flay].

The deluxe edition of the acclaimed third studio album featured five new tracks, including remixes of fan-favorites “Dead Weight” (remixed by Nicole Moudaber) and “Loveless,” (remixed by Lynn herself), plus brand-new song “Thank You” featuring RAYE. For the first time ever, these five tracks are now available on coke bottle clear vinyl, exclusively for RSD Drops.

Early in Johnny Paycheck's pre-fame career, he toured as a sideman and bassist for George Jones in the early 1960s. At that time, he entered a recording studio in an attempt to secure a record deal as a solo artist. The recordings have been long forgotten and unheard until now. The Adams Brothers, who gained notoriety on Mike Judge's Tales From The Tour Bus episode on Paycheck, produced the songs and worked as Paycheck's band. These recordings showcase Paycheck's considerable talent long before the music world took notice. Paycheck performs songs by some of country music's most iconic songwriters such as Cowboy Jack Clement, Mel Tillis, and Bill Anderson. Step back in time and listen to uncovered country music history.

First ever vinyl release of the soundtrack for this Wes Craven classic from 1991. Composer Don Peake created an incredibly atmospheric and spooky score for this film. Peake's career is insane –as a guitarist and member of the Wrecking Crew, he’s played on albums by Marvin Gaye, Phil Spector, Everly Brothers, Mahalia Jackson, John Lennon, Jackson Five and more. 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.

July Limited Run

Permanent Records is profoundly proud to present this limited edition reissue of Raven's highly regarded 1975 wasted hard rock masterpiece, Back To Ohio Blues. More hard rock than blues, this stoned proto-punk record is one-of-a-kind and is finally being reissued with its original minimalist artwork. Fans of other wasted private press geniuses like Circuit Rider, George Brigman, and Heitkotter will absolutely want to file this on the shelf right next to the cheap beer filled mini-fridge to be enjoyed in the garage with the next six-pack / bong rips sesh. But don't take our word for it, here's what the heads at Acid Archives had to say about this rarity:
"Messed up bluesy hard rock biker statement which I'm told comes straight from this guy's reality, no posing but the real thing. Great punky vocals relate stories on smack, sex, Ohio, Harleys and everything else that makes life worth living. Sample lyrics: "gotta get high, gotta get f***ed, nail me to your cross". An impressive intensity especially on side 1 and one of the few local white blues rock LP's that truly works. A classic of mid '70's local hard stoner dementia; would make a good double bill with the Merry Airbrakes."

Unless you have $1250 in your piggy bank to spend on an OG, you shouldn't think twice about plunking your hard-earned milk money down on this reissue, before it's gone again.

I remember the heat that day burning through my JCPenney’s suit that I bought just the day before for our show at Avondale Brewing Company in Birmingham. 100 degree temperature outside in the dead of summer in Alabama is not uncommon. I was pouring sweat alongside people who had just met that day for the first time to play a show under the name St. Paul & The Broken Bones. I hated my name being in the band’s name but who cared at that point, it was just a fling. Now, over 8 years later, we built a career out of it.

During this pandemic, I have gotten awfully nostalgic. For a time, we would travel constantly and shows started blending together. The bar for the best show/best audience was just so high. That endorphin rush was taken for granted. The first moment we had to play a socially distanced show, I knew exactly what we should do. Play a show at Avondale Brewery and do our debut album in full. Something I would never had done if the pandemic had not happened. Mainly because I am a perpetual motion kind of person and don’t like looking back. The beauty though of looking back at the beginning was realizing all the great people that helped us turn a summer fling into an actual career. From TT Management to Single Lock Records to High Road Touring. It was such a beautiful time. Here is the live recording from that show that night. I hope y’all enjoy.

Shintaro Sakamoto, the former frontman of legendary psych/rock band Yura Yura Teikoku, is a Japanese music composer, producer, writer and singer based in Tokyo. New 12-inch EP is the latest release on Records Store Day 2021, a collection of his new songs recorded during the pandemic, available on vinyl.

Tracks include "The Feeling Of Love" - a boogie number that features a tremolo guitar, an exotic steel guitar, and a robotic voice with a light mid-tempo beat, with lyrics depicting the everyday life within the extraordinary situation. "Obscure Nightclub" is a ballad with a bottom heavy beat, a steel guitar, a clear flute sound, and an insect-voiced chorus. While portraying the scene of a nightclub, he sings about his feelings under the pandemic. The B-side features "By Swallow Season" - a mid-tempo jazzy boogie track, with sentimental lyrics over a floating mellow wah-wah guitar and melancholy saxophone. "How many years does it take to return to normal~", Sakamoto sings, reflecting on the situation. The EP ends with "Don't Tinker With History", a boogie-funk song which opens with a James Brown-like guitar riff. An ultimate soul classic in contemporary Japan, the echoey steel guitar and the dry strumming blends in with the tight groove, along with his straightforward lyrics like "People and events that were pretended it didn't exist".

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!

Chris Stamey’s collaboration with The Fellow Travelers is inspired by the intimate small combo sound of the late ‘50s and ‘60s. “I wrote most of it in the dark of winter, in the wee hours of the morning, that magical time when the whole wide world is fast asleep,” Stamey explains. The title track is something of an homage to John Coltrane, through blue-colored glasses. Some of the songs are clearly Tin Pan Alley-ish in their musical vocabularies, including the jolly, stride-piano-style exposition of “Come Home To Me” and the bittersweet sixth chords of “It Must Be Raining Somewhere.” “I Don’t Think Of You” explores Burt Bacharach and Jimmy Webb’s harmonic vocabulary. “In A Minor Key” reflects Stamey’s admiration for Thelonious Monk’s “Round Midnight,” while his summer-long obsession with Antonio Carlos Jobim is found on “Je Ne Sais Quoi”. Vocalist Brett Harris’s warm tenor shines throughout the set, with Ramune Martin featured as well. Chris Stamey has delivered an inspired album for this Record Store Day release.
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 A: “A Brand-New Shade of Blue”, “Je Ne Sais Quoi”, “Late For the Party”, “I Don't Think Of You”

Grunge metal greatness! This 1993 record marked Tad's major label debut (on the Giant imprint), and for it the band brought in Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis to produce. The result was a more focused album than Tad's previous outings, laced with piledriver riffs 'n' hooks and some wicked humor, even as the band grappled with such disturbing topics as Ted Bundy and child abduction. The band toured with Soundgarden behind this record; though that didn't lead to the hoped-for commercial breakthrough, it did cement Inhaler's status as the go-to record in Tad's catalog. Only out on LP for a heartbeat upon its initial release, and never reissued since, Inhaler comes in tan, black and red "Mutt Mix" swirl vinyl limited to 3000 copies for RSD Drops.

Behind The Dykes 2 - More Beat, Blues And Psychedelic Nuggets From The Lowlands 1966 - 1971 is the follow-up to the hugely successful first edition, released for RSD Drops 2020. It was picked up and released by many RSD territories, resulting in social media posts from Amsterdam and London to Nashville, Canada, Massachusetts, Sweden, Ohio, Boston, Illinois, Bratislava, Los Angeles, Portugal, Australia and many more, all using the hashtag #behindthedykes. Besides that, the album was No.1 in the Dutch compilation chart the week after its release, making it the best selling RSD release of Drop 2. And that same week it entered the US Billboard compilation chart at #5, after being tipped by Rolling Stone magazine as one of their favorite RSD 2020 releases to look out for. So more than enough reasons for a second volume, to be released on RSD 2021. The concept is the same: Much sought-after Dutch beat and psych rarities on a colored vinyl double LP, with amazing artwork, track-by-track liner notes and band photos. All songs on Volume 2 have been newly transferred and remastered from the original master tapes, some in their original mono versions, including two newly unearthed, previously unreleased gems.

In the span of just five years, we’ve released ten editions of the Brown Acid series, all of them packed with brilliant long-lost, rare, and unreleased hard rock, heavy psych, and proto-metal tracks from the ‘60s-‘70s. With so much essential material to choose from, if you’re on a limited budget or you don’t know where to start, this record is for you! We’ve collected ten powerful tracks, one from each edition, here to provide your first dose. We know you’ll be back for more.

With each Trip, we unearth even more incredible bangers that somehow eluded popularity in their day For every classic rock mainstay like Black Sabbath and Grand Funk Railroad, there are hundreds of great bands who, for a variety of reasons, were previously lost to the sands of time. Brown Acid seeks to rectify that, with all tracks painstakingly licensed legitimately and ensuring that the original artists are paid. As the series editions grow higher into the double digits, here’s a quick lysergic drop to get you up to speed.

Zekes, led by the songwriting duo of brothers Lenny & Kenny Gayle, opens the collection with the slithering buzzsaw guitars and hard-rock howl of "Box", a monster that gives Blue Cheer a run for their leaden blues. The 1970 track is originally the B-side to the band’s “Leaving You” 45 rpm single on the Beverly Hills label.

The squealing guitar harmonies and Sabbath plod of Ash's "Midnight Wish” are a psychedelic prog-fest from 1971 by this Australian quartet, one of few bands with the foresight to have made a music video way back then. The Factory’s “Time Machine” serves ample Rod Serling sci-fi paranoia alongside an insistent guitar riff, reverb soaked drums and one of the most psychotic sounding vibrato vocal lines this side of The Trashmen’s “Surfin’ Bird.”

Daingerfield, Texas group Kanaan’s 1969 fuzz-drenched ripper “Leave It” is a rousing anthem of boogie rock groove and wailing vocals. You may be familiar with George Brigman's psychedelic punk masterpiece Jungle Rot, but you don't know Split until you've heard the charmingly disjointed bedroom-fi production of "Blowin' Smoke.”

Truth & Janey are well known for their incredible 1976 LP No Rest For The Wicked. But their proto-metal 45-only single “Midnight Horseman” released four years earlier is a fantastic, formerly long-lost wonder. Blizzard was Rod McClure's high school band, but you couldn't possibly guess that teenagers recorded this heavy slab of obscure Oklahoma rage in 1973, sounding like a hypothetical MC5/Hendrix collaboration.

Luke and the Apostles ain't no Xian group, even though this 45 is of biblical proportions. "Not Far Off" is a tight and slinky jam sure to give your significant other bedroom eyes. The Doors and Elektra Records' producer Paul Rothchild called the Luke and the Apostles LP the "greatest album [he] never got to make.”

Indiana rockers Ice’s stunning full length debut languished unreleased for 50 years until RidingEasy issued The Ice Age in 2020. Back in 1970, the band recorded 10 original songs at 8-Track Studios in Chicago, only to break up shortly thereafter. Two of the tracks were eventually released as a 45 in 1972, but confusingly under a different band name, Zukus! “Running High” deftly balances wayward psychedelic pop and troglodyte thunder.

Louisville, KY quartet Conception's excellent revision of Blue Cheer's "Babylon" adds heavy phaser effect on the guitar and a more driving rhythm to make the song entirely their own. Lead guitar and high harmony vocals by Charlie Day (not to be confused with the Sunny Philadelphian actor) are assertive and commanding as he implores listeners onward to hallucinogenic nirvana.

Kiss My Ass Goodbye is a left-of-center John Prine tribute album benefitting Nashville’s downtown homeless shelter, the Nashville Rescue Mission. The 20 song compilation features some of Prine’s best-known songs, and a surprising number of deep cuts performed by an eclectic group of artists. Included are Nashville A-listers associated with Prine, such as songwriter/guitarist/producer Will Kimbrough (Emmylou Harris/Rodney Crowell/Todd Snider), as well as underground rock ‘n’ roll heroes like T. Hardy Morris (Diamond Rugs) of Athens, Ga. In the case of nascent Nashville indie act Heaven Honey — recently named the Nashville Scene’s “Best New Band” — you have both, in a dreamy collaboration with legendary drummer Bryan Owings (John Prine, Emmylou Harris, Tony Joe White).

John Prine tributes have been common in the music world since well before the legendary songwriter passed away April 7, 2020, but Kiss My Ass Goodbye cuts a new path through Prine’s famous catalogue. You haven’t heard anything like the way homegrown Music City honky-tonker Mick Mullin sets the record straight with his reverent rewrite of the David Allan Coe classic “You Never Even Call Me By My Name” — which diehard Prine fans know was an uncredited Prine co-write with Steve Goodman. This Prine tribute may also be the first to feature a song that Prine himself covered, with a Blaze Foley classic performed by Nashville’s Justin and The Cosmics’ — the storied rock ‘n’ roll outfit of Deer Tick/Middle Brother producer Justin Collins. And it is most certainly the first to offer a hip-hop take on a Prine song, performed by Chicago-based Ifjams.

Portland-based Groove Family Records and Nashville’s Devil’s Tower Records have teamed up to release Kiss My Ass Goodbye, which also features original album art by sought-after Athens, Ga. visual artist Eli Saragoussi. Kindercore Vinyl is also a sponsor of this very special project. All proceeds from vinyl and digital sales will benefit the Nashville Rescue Mission, a charity chosen by the Prine family.

This double album on randomly colored vinyl stands to raise over $10,000 to help the homeless in Nashville.

Produced by longtime Misfits and Ramones collaborator John Cafiero (Osaka Popstar), and originally appearing on the #1 billboard charting album "Dr. Demento Covered In Punk," Weird Al’s “Beat On The Brat” was hailed by Rolling Stone as “a blistering, accordion-tinged cover.” 
 
Weird Al, the most requested artist in the history of the Dr. Demento Show, stated of the recording, "How could I not contribute to this project. I love punk music, and Dr. Demento changed my entire life in an extraordinary way. I selected "Beat on the Brat" by the Ramones, because I truly believe it's the most upbeat, danceable song about child abuse ever written.” 
 
Performed by: “Weird Al” Yankovic on vocals and accordion, with Osaka Popstar (John Cafiero on backing vocals, Dean Rispler on guitar, Sal Maida on bass, and Dennis Diken on drums), this 3” record is made to play on the RSD3 mini-turntable (as well as the RSD 2020 clear variant). Comes with a collector's poster and sleeve featuring Weird Al 'Brat Beater' artwork by Garbage Pail Kids artist Neil Camera. Exclusively from Demented Punk Records for RSD 2021!
