Label: Mr Bongo
Quantity: 1000
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

The late, great Terry Callier was an icon and inspiration to many; his work on Cadet Records with Charles Stepney and Elektra in the 70s made him a cult artist. After coming out of musical semi-retirement and returning to the stage in the 90s, Terry's light continued to shine, wowing both old and new audiences with the exquisite beauty his music and voice channelled.
Following his stunning performance at the 2008 Meltdown Festival, curated by Massive Attack, Terry teamed up with the legendary British trio, which resulted in ‘Hidden Conversations'. Massive Attack's Robert Del Naja co-wrote ‘Wings’, ‘John Lee Hooker', and ‘Live With Me’. The combination of Robert Del Naja’s haunting production and Terry’s captivating, emotive vocals fused beautifully. Terry collaborated with the producers Christopher Grabowski and Mark Hardy on the remaining other songs on the album.

MORE INFO

In short order, the young Nashville band has risen from humble beginnings playing the Nashville house party scene and DIY art gatherings to performing at festivals like Bonnaroo and Forecastle and sharing bills with the likes of Rostam and Cold War Kids.

With ‘Wait,’ Arlie make good on the potential exhibited on their early singles. Lead single “barcelona boots” is a swirl of washed-out synths and Banks’ yearning falsetto, while “too long” is a sighing ballad underpinned with psychedelic atmospherics. On the EP's closer -- the tropical, hazy “tossing and turning” -- Arlie turns a self-deprecating eye on a superficial generation so fixated on projecting a lifestyle that they miss out on living the actual life.

Ayers’ 1968 masterwork issued on splatter colored vinyl exclusively for RSD 2023

In the late 1960s, vibraphonist Roy Ayers was among the top young talents in jazz, thriving during a remarkable era for the genre. While Ayers would later become a jazz-funk pioneer and delve heavily into R&B fusions, his third album Stoned Soul Picnic is a masterful showcase of soul-jazz grooves. Produced by Herbie Mann, Stoned Soul Picnic features a memorable Laura Nyro-penned title track and an exceptional lineup of musicians, including Gary Bartz, Hubert Laws, Ron Carter, Herbie Hancock, and Grady Tate. Originally released in 1968, this early Roy Ayers classic is now receiving an official reissue on limited-edition splatter colored vinyl via Nature Sounds for Record Store Day 2023.

LEVITATION and the LIVE AT LEVITATION Vinyl Series

The first Austin Psych Fest was held in March 2008, and expanded to the three-day LEVITATION event the following year. The event quickly developed into an international destination for psychedelic rock fans, with lineups spanning the fringes of indie rock, from up-and-comers to vintage legends, and capped off with headline performances from co-founders The Black Angels, along with Tame Impala, The Flaming Lips, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Thee Oh Sees (in various forms) and many more. LEVITATION helped spark a movement, inspiring the creation of similar events across the globe and a burgeoning psych scene that would soon ignite. The LIVE AT LEVITATION series captures key moments in psychedelic rock history, and live music in Austin, Texas, pressed on beautiful limited edition colorful vinyl pressings - each an eye-popping visual representation of the music contained within.

The artists and sets showcased on LIVE AT LEVITATION have been chosen from over a decade of recordings at the world-renowned event, and document key artists in the scene performing for a crowd of their peers and fans who gather at LEVITATION annually from all over the world.

MORE INFO

Harry Whitaker is a piano player, producer and arranger who at the age of 26 recorded Black Renaissance "Body, Mind, and Spirit," a holy grail amongst collectors of soul-jazz and rare groove, and an album so rare it's virtually a myth to many.

Made up of two long tracks that periodically build and release for forty minutes over two sides of an LP it's an improvised masterpiece combining Afrocentric spiritual soul, jazz, poetry, amazing solos, a tasty bass line or two and more than a fair share of funky beats. It's also one of the earliest jazz albums to feature rapping. "I called the project Black Renaissance because that is what I wanted to see happen - especially in music. I describe it as Dixieland circa 1976 - by the end of the songs everyone is playing together."

Given its rarity, when asked if he was surprised that people knew about the album Whitaker jokes "I've told enough people about it over the years! Now they can actually hear it. It was a record before it's time. It's not a commercial release - I think of it as classical. You can call it jazz, but it's free, it's got African roots, it's for people who people who dig that sound."

Harry Whitaker has enjoyed a successful career as a producer, arranger and composer, cutting his teeth on the best of the Roy Ayers Ubiquity releases and making a living working closely with Roberta Flack - as her musical director, even playing on her big Eugene McDaniels' written hit "I Feel Like Makin' Love." Black Renaissance "Body, Mind, and Spirit," was his first attempt at a project where he wrote and composed the music and played keys on both tracks.

Originally released in 1977 and highly considered as one of the grail titles in the Spiritual Jazz, Jazz-Funk canon. Reissued by Luv N'Haight in 2002 with a limited pressing. This repress on black vinyl will be exclusive to RSD.

Brownout

Brownout Presents: Brown Sabbath Vol.1

DETAILS

Date: 4/22/2023
Format: 2 x LP
Label: Ubiquity Records
Quantity: 1500
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

Brown Sabbath is the alter ego of Austin-based Brownout, which delves into the catalog of the Hard Rock and Heavy Metal godfathers themselves: Black Sabbath. The album features several covers of Sabbath classics including “Iron Man”, “N.I.B” and “Hand Of Doom” with Black Angels singer Alex Maas.

Remaining true to the darkness, bombast and fuzz of Sabbath's sound, Brownout reinvents the music with their trademark flavors of Latin-Funk and Psychedelic Rock. Powerful horns combined with Alex Maas’ haunting vocals, funked-up drums and percussion transform “Hand Of Doom” into a Rock and Funk juggernaut that clocks in at almost 8 minutes long. Alex Marrero takes his turn on the vocals and channels his inner Ozzy Osbourne on “The Wizard” and “N.I.B”. Deep, hypnotic percussion combined with a full horn section and Adrian Quesada‘s heavy yet groovy lead guitar layered on top adds a funk sensibility and Latin flourishes to the originals throughout the album.

An 8-piece outfit formed ten years ago by members of Grammy Award-winning Latin revival orchestra Grupo Fantasma, Brownout has evolved into a musical force all its own. After garnering their third Austin Music Award last year, the band has continued to produce music that is unflinchingly progressive, while evoking the classic influences of artists such as WAR, Cymande and Funkadelic. Brownout has released seven albums including two volumes as Brown Sabbath: Homenaje (Freestyle Records 2008), Aguilas & Cobras (Six Degrees 2009), Oozy (Nat Geo 2012), Fear Of A Brown Planet (Fat Beats 2015) and Berlin Sessions (Fat Beats 2020).

Originally released in 2014 as a limited vinyl pressing that sold out quickly with copies now going for a premium price on the reseller market, this repressof Brown Sabbath Vol. 1 has long been warranted. The RSD 2023 edition comes on Translucent Tan with Brown Splatter vinyl.

Release type: RSD Exclusive

MORE INFO

John Prine once said, “Bob Dylan opened the door when there was no door, and then left it open for others to come through.” When Jack Torrey and Page Burkum, aka The Cactus Blossoms, found that door, they walked right through it. "Dylan’s music was a friend and guide to me in those early years and has continued to be an artistic home base for me and Page,” Torrey says. "His songwriting on the Nashville Skyline and New Morning albums are such departure from his mid-‘60s rock’n’roll poetry, and they really comfortably fit into our wheelhouse without us having to imitate his unique style."

On their EP If Not For You (Bob Dylan Songs Vol. 1) The Cactus Blossoms reimagine four songs from the Bob Dylan songbook. Vol. 1 draws from Dylan’s early catalog and filters his work through the lens of the brothers’ signature harmonies and lush arrangements, adding new layers to these familiar classics. Pressed for Record Store Day on blue vinyl.

MORE INFO

Live in Anvers is the last album Alex Chilton released under his own name during his lifetime. He had recently taught himself how to transcribe music and for the album he wrote out charts for a number of songs, some he’d written,  like “In the Street” from his Big Star days and “Bangkok” from his run in the late 70s New York punk scene. An obsessive crate digger, especially of southern soul music, Alex unearthed and transcribed the music for Claim to Fame: an obscure Frederick Knight track as well as things made popular by Sam and Dave and Ernie K Doe. Live In Anvers was recorded for a music festival in Belgium with a band he had just met, reading the charts he had just written, another classic off the cuff fly by the seat of your pants performance by one of America’s greatest music makers.

This release is the latest reissue in UMR’s on-going catalogue work with the Cranberries following on from the deluxe reissues of their debut album Everybody Else is Doing It… and multi-million-selling follow-up No Need To Argue, as well as vinyl editions of the band’s greatest hits collection Stars, and Remembering Dolores, a new compilation release that celebrated the life of much-missed singer Dolores O’Riordan.

MORE INFO

In 2017, DIIV took the stage at Brooklyn’s Murmrr Theatre for a special, on-off, “unplugged” performance. Now, the band shares a compilation of those live recordings. Includes unique arrangements of tracks from the band’s first two albums - Oshin and Is The Is Are - as well as covers of Alex G’s “Hollow” and My Bloody Valentine’s “When You Sleep”.

Following the digital release in November 2022, the compilation is now available on vinyl for the first and only time, pressed on Eco vinyl - exclusive to Record Store Day 2023.

“In August 2017 I was 5 months sober and DIIV hadn’t played a show in almost a year. Our friend Ric helped us set up an intimate acoustic show in a theater in our hometown of brooklyn. We decorated the stage with stuff from our houses and played our home videos on a tv. We invited our friends and family and played some songs from our first two albums and some other artists’ songs that felt important to us as a band. It felt like some kind of reset. We recorded the show and forgot about it for a bunch of years. We recently found the recordings and thought people might want to hear them. I think of it as a kind of official bootleg I guess. Our friend Jarvis mixed it and our friends Parker and Jim made the art. enjoy.” — Zachary Cole Smith

MORE INFO

"Fred Davis was a legend, but only in my living room. There was always music around my house, but as a teenager, I started digging deeper and deeper in to the blues records in my Dad's collection. That was when I started to get the Fred Davis story in fits and starts. Fred could play like T-Bone Walker and sang in a high, keen voice like J.B. Lenoir, he said. He used to front a jump band in Kansas City, before something went down that sent him to prison at Leavenworth. In the summer of 1967, he ended up working alongside my Dad at Harco, the Cleveland factory where my grandfather was an executive. They became friends, bonding over the B.B. King and Bobby Bland records blaring from the AM radio on the factory floor.

Fred taught my Dad the rudiments of blues guitar, but his style. Instead of barring with his first finger, he wrapped his thumb around the back of the neck. That left his other fingers free to create big, ringing voicings that imitated the Kansas City horn sections he heard in his youth. Fred could play up and down the neck and, even when he played and sang just by himself, he sounded like a full band. Or, at least, so the legend went. These were only foggy memories from thirty years previous, passed down from a father to a son.

But then we found the tape. A quarter inch reel in a plain white cardboard box, hiding on a shelf in the attic. My Dad explained how it came to exist: He found some friends (acquaintances really) who had a band and some equipment. They setup in my grandparents living room where the upright piano was, and he invited Fred over to record some of his songs with the band backing him up. Invited him over, to play loud music, in his boss’s living room. Sounds like something I would have done. The idea was that maybe if there were some recordings of Fred that he could use them to get booked on the nascent college blues-revival circuit, but it wasn’t to be.

We found a place nearby that could dub the tape and put it on a CD for us. When we finally got the transfer back, the legend became real. Fred really COULD sing like J.B. Lenoir and play like T-Bone Walker. He really DID have his own style. And that style had now been passed on to me. Without even realizing it, I had learned to play like Fred Davis. Even now, when I sit down to play the guitar or write a song and I wrap my thumb around the neck, I’m playing like he did. With this music now professionally transferred and remastered, I can only hope that Fred Davis can finally receive the acclaim that he deserves; that he never received in his lifetime. The legend can finally go behind the confines of my living room and, with any luck, to the whole world."

MORE INFO

When Long Island MC Diabolic broke into the rap scene with a hidden verse on Immortal Technique’s 2001 album Revolutionary Volume 1, it was evident that his explosive, uncut rhyme style would be something underground circles could salivate over. However, despite his obvious prowess on the microphone, empty offers from labels in the beginning stages of his career left him no choice but to steer clear from commitment until the perfect opportunity arose. Along came Viper Records, who gave Diabolic full control of his debut album, Liar & a Thief.

With over three years of work put into his inaugural LP, Diabolic rose to the occasion and let the industry know they had a problem on their hands. In the production of the British Columbia-based Engineer, Diabolic found the ideal soundscape to complement his enraged, often self-destructive lyricism better than one could expect.

A notable lineup of guest appearances from the likes of ILL BILL, Canibus, Immortal Technique, and Vinnie Paz, combined with Bolic’s razor sharp rhyme schemes that permeate through Engineer’s melodic and articulate production, all lend itself to the perfect storm, and one of the more promising debut efforts that we had hoped would live up to the hype.

For the first time ever, Diabolic’s acclaimed debut, Liar & a Thief will be available on vinyl as a 2XLP, in time for RSD 2023. The 17 track LP will be pressed on two black and silver swirled discs in a sturdy 24pt jacket with metallic silver trim.

Mount Wittenberg Orca (Expanded Edition)

DETAILS

Format: 2 x LP
Label: Domino Record Co.
Quantity: 1500
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

Expanded Edition of the long out of print Mount Wittenberg Orca LP, Dirty Projectors' critically acclaimed collaborative album with Icelandic legend Björk.

inspired by a conversation between Dirty Projectors band leader David Longstreth and Björk about the small theaters in Italy where opera was born in the 1500s, the original seven-song collection was written to be performed unamplified in a small Manhattan bookstore called Housing Works. The result feels like part children's story, part choral music from some strange future. It's unlike anything else in the Projectors' body of work: drums and guitars are all but absent. It's all about voices here — and the voices are astonishing. Björk sounds seismic and elemental and Longstreth, sharing lead vocal duties, intones with his trademark croon. The Projectors' singers Amber Coffman, Angel Deradoorian and Haley Dekle add magical 3-part vocal harmonies.

The recording was informed by the simple, direct feel of early rock ‘n’ roll recordings from the '50s. The band and Björk rehearsed for three days at the Rare Book Room in Brooklyn, then recorded the songs as quickly and as live as possible, overdubbing only lead vocals and solos.

The 2xLP Expanded Edition adds 13 bonus tracks of never-before-released material including the live Housing Works performance from 2009, early demos of Mount Wittenberg Orca and archival audio of the band and Bjork rehearsing the material. This is the definitive version of Mount Wittenberg Orca.

MORE INFO

Change is Dismemberment Plan’s fourth album. Originally released in 2001, the title appropriately describes this Washington, DC area band’s continued creative growth from a punk band to something all their own. Change brought shifts in tempo and a more layered sound for the band without them losing any of their edge or sharp wit. Critically acclaimed when released, the album still holds up, brilliantly balancing their very danceable and moody punk feeling. The album was produced by J. Robbins from Jawbox.

MORE INFO

Blessed with a formidable frontwoman in Brett Anderson, a guitar heroine in Allison Robertson, and a pummeling rhythm section in bassist Maya Ford and drummer Torry Castellano, The Donnas were one of the greatest punk bands of the '90s, male or female, and brought a uniquely hedonistic yet feminist viewpoint to the genre. Now, at last, with the full cooperation of the band, Real Gone Music is releasing the first-ever vinyl retrospective of their early days recording for (mostly) the Lookout! Label, featuring 14 non-LP sides. (Real Gone will subsequently be releasing the group's four Lookout! Albums.)

Almost all of these songs, from their first single "High School Yum Yum," to their REO cover "Keep On Loving You," haven't been on vinyl since their original release, if at all; rare photos and memorabilia plus track-by-track commentary and liner notes (on the enclosed insert) by all four band members make Early Singles 1995-1999 truly indispensable for Donnas fans. Remastered for LP by Mike Milchner of Sonic Vision, and pressed on metallic gold vinyl (cuz these trax should have been gold records!) and limited to 2000 copies worldwide. This golden version is available only at record stores as part of Record Store Day.

MORE INFO

Group Therapy is the third studio album by American nu metal band Dope. The enhanced portion of the album contains a music video for each song. Group Therapy shows the band expanding on the more alternative metal style music the band had started on their previous album, Life, and most of the industrial style music has been toned down. The album contains some of the band's most heavy and aggressive songs while certain songs such as "Sing", "Another Day Goes By" and "Easier" show a softer, more melodic sound. In the second half of 2004 the album had already sold about 37,749 in United States. "Now is the Time" was used in an episode of Dog the Bounty Hunter.

El Quatro

Displacement

DETAILS

Date: 4/22/2023
Format: Vinyl
Label: Crooked Beat Records
Quantity: 300
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus

MORE INFO

For nearly thirty years El Quatro has been the premier purveyor of a gear grinding, nitrous injected, high octane brand of Iggy & The Stooges-inspired garage rock, known to fans as “rot-n-roll.” Drawing on apocryphal Americana, urban and suburban legend, tabloid news, and a dubious longing for the heyday of Detroit muscle, El Quatro represents a musical chapbook chronicling an empire in decline…with guitars. Forged in the fallout days of DC hardcore and hailing from Arlington VA El Quatro cut their teeth at the infamous O’Carroll’s in Arlington. The legendary shows gave rise to the Buzzkiller Sessions and the cassette-only release of the same name remains a sought after recording by fans. Throughout their career they have played extensively in the DC area under the mantra of “anytime, anywhere,” sharing the stage with bands as diverse as Esmerelda, The Pietasters, and History Repeated.

In the ‘90s and beyond they were a regular at Iota Club and Cafe in Arlington, which resulted in their magnum opus Live at Iota, recorded via a mobile twenty-four-track by Doug Derryberry and mixed by Mike Harvey at Actiondale Studio.

Recently they have been contributors to the Crooked Beat Record Store Day releases Recutting the Crap Vol I & II, and Songs from the Astral Plane, Vol I: A Tribute to Jonathan Richman, and they recorded seven original songs at the legendary Inner Ear in Arlington VA, one of the last bands to have worked there before Don Zientarra closed that space in October 2021..

The band has had various line-up changes over the years but the songwriting nucleus of Brad Wynn (guitar,) and Joel Lind (vocals,) remains constant. Completing the band is the rhythm section of Jim McNab (bass,) and Eric Kreinar (drums.) Together this constitutes the longest running and most faithful line up. Stylistically drawing from the hard and heavy bands of their adolescence and distilled in alembic of the modern world, El Quatro is the dirt under your nails, it is the perpetual beltway snarl, it is unrequited love….it is the world of broken dreams made whole again by loud, unforgiving rock-n-roll. It is truth.

Hand-numbered EP is limited to 400 worldwide.
NOTE: This title is being released by Crooked Beat Records, a record store and label in Alexandria VA, and though it is available for any record store to bring in, will most easily be found in that area.

MORE INFO

This is a very mature record from one of the very best prog-rock vocalist. John Elefante was the vocalist for Kansas and performed keyboards on Kansas albums Vinyl Confessions and Drastic Measures. He would go on to be a much sought after record producer helping dominate the charts with many bands/artist as well as his own chart topping band Mastedon, which also featured former Kansas alumni Kerry Livgren on the album "3". Now John is releasing his solo album The Amazing Grace which is sure to please his diehard Kansas fans with tracks like "Won't Fade Away" and the first single "Stronger Now". It's no surprise that Johns' new album offers many different styles. Take “The Amazing Grace“ which is reminiscent of TOTO or THE BEATLES-like “Stronger Now“.

An exciting album with numerous highlights, lots of depth musically and a pristine production. Check out “Time Machine“ or “We Will Be Fine“, too.

Format: LP
Label: Craft Recordings
Quantity: 2500
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

Much has been documented about the pioneering music that came out of the U.S. in the ‘60s and ‘70s, amid the social and political strife of the era. But the scene wasn’t just about the Summer of Love or Woodstock. There was another movement happening in the Latin neighborhoods of New York City as cultural barriers loosened. Beginning in the mid-‘60s, musicians were filling clubs with an irresistible combination of soul, R&B and Afro-Cuban dance rhythms. By the turn of the decade, Latin music in the U.S. had evolved, often integrating socially conscious lyricism (in both English and Spanish), rock and funk influences, and a heavy dose of psychedelia. That sound is captured on Flash & The Dynamics’ album The New York Sound, a rarity from the Fania Records vault. The 1971 album, which marks the band’s sole release, blends traditional Latin melodies with distorted guitars, soulful psychedelia and funky rhythms. Listeners will be transported to another era with jams like “Everybody’s Got Soul,” “Guajira Sicodélica,” and the trippy instrumental “Electric Latin Soul.”

Returning to vinyl for the first time in decades, this reissue features all-analog remastering by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio and is pressed on 180-gram purple vinyl LP.

MORE INFO

Legendary second studio album by Australian psych legends Fraternity, remastered and officially re-issued for the first time on vinyl since it’s original release in 1972, in a limited edition of 1,000 green vinyl copies. Featuring legendary AC/DC front man BON SCOTT on lead vocals! His time as a member of Fraternity helped put Scott on the radar of George Young, AC/DC producer from 1975 to 1978 and older brother of Angus and Malcolm, eventually leading to Scott replacing then-AC/DC front man Dave Evans. With AC/DC, Scott would gain the worldwide fame that he had sought and his performance both on stage and in the studio would cement him in history as one of the greatest rock and roll front men of all time. This seminal work by Fraternity stands on its own as an early 70’s blues rock classic and also showcases the development of the raucous rock and roll persona and trademark rasp of Bon Scott before it would see full bloom as a member of AC/DC.

MORE INFO

Game's eighth proper studio album came out during an active 2016. Earlier in the year, he released soundtracks for a documentary, Streets of Compton, and a mobile app game, Block Wars. On a personal level, he and 50 Cent made amends following a prolonged period of mutual antagonism, and then he went after Meek Mill, as documented on the forceful but controlled "92 Bars," included here. Although it's titled 1992 and is heavily nostalgic (even by Game's standard), stacked with references to the state of hip-hop circa the early '90s, it's inspired by the era more than it is a period piece.

MORE INFO

What do you get when you team the weirdest actor in Hollywood (one Crispin Hellion Glover) with two of the weirdest guys in pop music (Barnes & Barnes of "Fish Heads" fame)?

Something, well, WEIRD! Like, really freaking strange. Fans of The Residents and King Missile might find something to groove to here, but really this provides a voyeuristic dive into the deep, dark waters of one of the true characters of modern times (Johnny Depp or Keanu Reeves rock and roll crossover this ain't). Glover reads from his books of poetry ("Auto Manipulator" is about exactly what it sounds like it's about) over B&B's demented musical excursions. The result is a true cult classic, whose brief 1989 vinyl release remains impossibly scarce and impossibly pricey. Thus this first vinyl reissue (with three tracks never before on vinyl), in light blue with crimson "clowny clown clown" splatter vinyl limited to 2000 copies for Record Store Day! 12" x 18" poster and CD booklet featuring Glover's deeply disturbed comic book scribblings, too! (Don't bother calling the home phone number Crispin put on the back cover, it's disconnected).

The Grateful Dead performed more the 2,300 concerts, and of these many live shows, a three night run in May 1977, spanning three cities on the East Coast, is arguably the Dead's greatest trio of shows: May 7 in Boston, MA, May 8 in Ithaca, NY, and May 9 in Buffalo, NY. These three shows, along with their near-equal from May 5 in New Haven, made up the long-ago sold out box set "Get Shown The Light." The last two nights of this run have been released on vinyl in previous years, and we're thrilled to add to the canon the magnificent Boston show. From its opening, playful “Bertha,” through a flawless first set featuring “Cassidy,” “Jack Straw,” “Mississippi Half Step,” “The Music Never Stopped,” and many others, the Dead are clearly having a wonderful night in Bean Town. The second set is filled with then-new and older songs from the Dead's catalog, including “Terrapin Station,” “Estimated Prophet,” “Eyes Of The World,” and “Wharf Rat,” amongst others. A spectacular show from start-to-finish, Boston 5/7/77 is one of the most upbeat, accessible shows the Grateful Dead ever performed.

Demon Records are delighted to announce the release of Haircut 100% Live! Hammersmith Odeon Spring 1982 for Record Store Day 2023, released with full co-operation of the band. Haircut 100% Live! Hammersmith Odeon Spring 1982 is an in-concert album that highlights the group at the summit of their powers – high speed funk, to-die for pop and sweet melodies against the backdrop of Haircutmania. No overdubs and the high-octane energy of youth. The group moved from being London underground darlings to chart sensations in less than six months, and within a year had disappeared into pop’s ether, leaving behind one memorable album and four Top 10 UK singles, but many have said that the real way to experience the power of the Haircuts was to see them play live.

Pressed on zinging translucent red vinyl, Haircut 100% Live! Hammersmith Odeon Spring 1982 is an absolute must for all fans of frenetic funky fabulous melodic pop. This recently unearthed recording was part of the acclaimed Pelican West 40 CD set.

It includes their cover version of set opener Low Rider by War, where the group all appeared on stage one-by-one. Inner bag contains snapshots taken at the Hammersmith gig and after show on 1 April 1982 from guitarist Graham Jones’ personal archive. Mastered by Phil Kinrade at AIR Mastering.

MORE INFO

"To Love A Boy" and "Stay Open" are the first singles ever released by Maya Hawke, in 2019. They were written and released by Maya Hawke and Jesse Harris, her frequent writing partner who also wrote on her debut album Blush. These songs were released as A-side/B-side on DSPs but have never before been available on a physical format.

“After seeing the movie Call Me by Your Name for the second time, I left the theater and I was walking home to my apartment in Brooklyn, and I just started thinking about the images of water and the romantic feeling in that movie. I was just filled with this intense jealousy and desire be in love and feel that way. Then I wrote the lyrics to “To Love a Boy” as a poem, and I sent them to Jesse Harris, and he wrote that melody, and I loved it. It’s about this dream reality where you could love somebody in an all-consuming way, where it feels like when you’re swimming in the ocean on a hot summer day."

Label: Real Gone Music

Release type: RSD Exclusive

MORE INFO

Since the film was set largely abroad, the soundtrack to Ocean’s Twelve lacked some of the old-school Vegas vibe that made its predecessor such a hoot, but that meant more David Holmes, which is always a good thing (and Holmes won a BMI Award for his score just like he did for Ocean’s Eleven). Indeed, the abstract, electronica-cum-brass soundscapes created by Holmes went perfectly with the convoluted script; at least the audience could embrace the atmospheric groove even if they couldn’t figure out the latest plot twist! And the soundtrack also boasted some well-chosen contributions from international composers, including the great Piero Umiliani.

For its first-ever vinyl release, this fantastic score gets a 2-LP release in gold “Faberge Egg” vinyl housed inside a gatefold jacket featuring production stills. Limited to 2000 copies, exclusive for Record Store Day!

MORE INFO

2005's Mechanical Hand fine-tunes Horse the Band's entire operation. Erik Engstrom's keyboard still guides these songs, and often recalls the mechanistic, gawky robot feel of '80s video game music. But Engstrom and Horse the Band recall the 1980s in general, too. "Manateen" is incredible. It starts out by ripping off the same tubular Duran Duran groove that's responsible for the Killers, but shifts garishly into an angular post-hardcore screech, like a noisier version of what Fugazi were doing at decade's end. Horse aren't finished. "Manateen" goes on to crash soft synth melodies into righteous hardcore, and despite these jarring parts and sounds, Mechanical Hand never sounds as fragmented as R. Borlax. The experiments continue. Arrows whiz by, men scream, and drawn swords rattle over the rolling snare of "Heroes Die"'s intro; it soon becomes a monolithic metal trudge. Shades of Iron Maiden, Brainiac, White Zombie, Converge, Dig Dug, and Mario Cart bare their teeth on "House of God" and "Octopus on Fire"; the keyboard stabs away, the guitars ring with something approaching anthemic or at least thickheaded glory, and Nathan Winneke's vocals go from yowl to growl to snark in the twist of an elbow

Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

A 2xLP set of rare, early Hüsker Dü live recordings, featuring original flyers and artwork. Drawn from the historical Hüsker Dü recording archives compiled by Terry Katzman, this double disc live set is an essential companion piece to the band's Savage Young Du Box Set. While the SYD release principally featured studio demos, the 28 tracks presented here are the aural and enchanting equivalent of a time machine that vividly thrusts the listener straight back to Husker Du's embryonic unsheathing on stage.

Side A dates to July 1979. Side B gives us a full year's evolution to July 1980, while Sides C and D land the listener in September 1980. Perhaps 120 people in total saw these three Longhorn performances. Until now, a handful at most have heard the playbacks. So, rare and fresh, it's all here: the songs, the driven performances, the small club intimacy of being in front of select friends, fans, and peers, with one fair shot at getting it right. These four sides compellingly document that you can't doubt that they did.

Format: LP
Label: Brutal Planet Records
Quantity: 1000
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus

MORE INFO

The buzz generated from over a million plays of IN THIS MOMENT's tunes on the popular Internet community apparently got the attention of the Century Media folks and the rest, as they say, is history. And,the hype over this band's melodic, Swedish-inflected metalcore is not overblown.  In addition to a load of good riffs and guitar harmonies, as well as a knack for writing strong melodies, the secret ingredient is the voice of front woman Maria Brink. Her singing is passionate and beautiful, yet not wimpy; the melodies written suit her perfectly and she really knows how to make a chorus come to life. At the same time, her harsh 'core vocals are ferocious as hell and sound better than many of her male counterparts.  One of the best things that "Beautiful Tragedy" has going for it is the consistency of songwriting. Many albums of this type have a couple of catchy tunes and the rest begin to bleed together. By contrast, most of the songs on "Beautiful Tragedy" are rife with big hooks and killer axe work, the title track being the standout for an incredibly catchy chorus. But several other songs, such as "Ashes" and "Daddy's Falling Angel," are catchy too. Sure, the band follows a formula in the way that screams and melodic vocals are alternated in predictable places. Fortunately, IN THIS MOMENT gets it right, even in a world where every other band employs a similar songwriting style.  It also helps that the tunes are largely up-tempo and stick to a Swedish melodic death metal style of arrangement that is not rife with breakdowns. Beautiful Tragedy is a 2007 masterpiece that breathed new life into a worn out genre.  The 2016 vinyl release has been long out of print and this 2023 color vinyl on Brutal Planet Records now features three Japan-only bonus tracks for the very first time.  Remastered for vinyl by Bombworks Sound/Rob Colwell we promise this classic, monumental album has literally never sounded better!

MORE INFO

Macho Man" Randy Savage was a WWE wrestling superstar with dazzling over-the-top costumes. His signature phrase, "Ohhh yeah!" won over wrestling fans worldwide and eventually was seen in nearly every Slim Jim commercial. He even played a wrestler "Bone Saw" McGraw in the 2002 movie, Spider-Man. His music career started in 1993 making his debut WrestleMania:The Album along side of other top wrestlers such as Bret "The Hitman" Hart,  The Undertaker,  Hacksaw Jim Duggan and others.  On October 7, 2003, Savage released his debut rap/hiphop album titled Be a Man, which has sold over the years for staggering amounts on eBay.  It includes a tribute song to a fellow wrestler "Mr. Perfect" Curt Hennig who passed earlier that year. It also included the title track "Be a Man" that was aimed right at fellow wrestling icon and former Mega Powers tag-team partner Hulk Hogan. Fortunately, before Savage’s death he had the opportunity to bury the hatchet with Hogan after a decade long feud  that many thought was just a marketing gimmick. This rap album includes DJ Kool on the very club-like vibe, "Hit The Floor", the second single which would have been amazing to see live. It also includes Big K, Brian O, Da Raskulls, Inc., Eliott Harris, Shianna Raymona,  Mo Blaze and Smokke. Now, first time on vinyl, this amazing rap album has been completely remastered for vinyl and includes a 2-sided full color printed insert with photos and album history and comes in a black poly-lined sleeve with hype-sticker on Purple vinyl.

MORE INFO

The reggae classic issued for RSD 2023 on an Africa shaped picture disc.

Before his tragic death at the age of 21, Hugh Mundell was a rising star in Jamaica’s burgeoning reggae scene. In 1976, the Kingston native released the single “Africa Must Be Free By 1983”, produced by dub legend Augustus Pablo. The song would eventually become the title track on Mundell’s classic debut album, released through Pablo’s iconic label Rockers.

Now, Nature Sounds is partnering with Augustus Pablo’s family for a limited-edition Africa-shaped vinyl picture disc highlighting this indelible track. Written by Hugh Mundell and recorded when the famed singer was just 14 years old, “Africa Must Be Free By 1983” is an uplifting anthem steeped in the Pan-African ideals Mundell championed during his brief but memorable career. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Rockers, this historic single is receiving a dazzling new deluxe vinyl pressing, complete with two rare Augustus Pablo dub mixes on the B-Side.

MORE INFO

Legendary among psychedelic record collectors for decades, the lone LP from Tulsa, OK's Marble Phrogg is finally getting a legitimate reissue. Originally released in 1968 on Derrick Records and pressed in a scant edition of just 250 , these were only sold in and around Tulsa, and quickly disappeared. Prized by heavy psych enthusiasts not just for its rarity, but also for the ten blistering versions of classics from Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Iron Butterfly, Steppenwolf, the Rolling Stones, the Byrds, and Donovan, as well as two powerful, overdriven originals.This has been lovingly remastered from a pristine original vinyl copy by Garrett Haines at Tree Lady Studios, and manufactured at Hand Drawn Pressing in Addison, TX on 180g "Marble Phrogg Green" vinyl. Guestroom Records is thrilled to announce that it will be exclusively available for Record Store Day 2023 in a strictly limited edition of 1500.

MORE INFO

RidingEasy Records has teamed up with Permanent Records in Los Angeles to bring this very special heavy psych rocker back into the fold for Record Store Day 2023. New York City-based African-American/Latino hard rock/psych trio Maximillian released their sole self-titled album on ABC Records in 1969, then promptly vanished. It has remained a collectors’ conversation piece ever since.

Maximillian combined elements of beat poetry, a little bit of The Fugs, a hit of Funkadelic, a lick of Cream and a vibe of Hendrix worship with an ambition that seems to have jumbled these influences. The Maximillian album is a rare artifact of late-‘60s psychedelic rock whose appeal is not the skill of their musicianship, but the downright strangeness of it. While at times it sounds like the trio is playing entirely different songs at the same time, it’s said that producer Teddy Vann had a hand in the album’s sometimes confusing production.

The group credited on the album consists of singer Buzzy Bowzer (aka Maximillian), lead guitarist Mojack Maximillian, and bassist Moby Medina (aka Moby Maximillian) with drummer Jerry Nolan later of the New York Dolls oddly uncredited on the LP. However, according to Nolan’s official biography, the band was actually co-founded by Buzzy and Nolan in 1968. The drummer was reported to have feuded with Vann, who disliked his Mitch Mitchell-influenced style, and was subsequently mixed very quietly and not credited on the album.

The album’s eye-catching artwork features the sharp-dressed band crucified on flower-covered crosses, with a cryptic and self-aggrandizing manifesto describing them as “new prophets of love and truth.” Be that as it may, their prophecy was short-lived, though it may have foretold the chaotic, rudimentary sounds to come in punk, and even, the grunge era.

The album opens with what sounds like an alternate reality version of Procol Harum’s “A Whiter Shade of Pale” here re-tripping the light fandango under the guise of “Naked Ape.” A short 4-second sputtering of a violin tuning starts and abruptly ends as funereal fuzz bass and drums set up the melody and shimmering organ, violin squall and Bowzer’s howling voice wails of the failures of human evolution. “Kickin’ 9 to 5” starts like an early Hendrix groove before turning on a dime into a Bo Diddley-esque dirge, replete with the drums hard panned to the left channel and a persistent maraca on the right. Bowzer’s diction on “Scar On My Memory” predates Mark E. Smith of The Fall’s signature added vowels at the end of most words, while the music sounds like a more acid damaged take on fellow NYC freak-folkers Exuma. Elsewhere, “The Name of The Game” echoes “Manic Depression” with churning, rolling drums and a chiming guitar following Bowzer’s growling blues until the song suddenly shifts into a lurching rave-up, then a blues rumble for a few bars before mutating back to the original riff. Album closer “Moby’s House” is by far the most unusual track, sounding like a pastiche of the album’s songs cut and spliced together in random fashion, perhaps in homage to The Beatles’ “Revolution No. 9.” Throughout the album, random percussion and other instruments pop up as though the producer were assuring he could take credit for song arrangements.

This album has been out of print for almost fifty years, it is available digitally but there hasn't been a legal pressing of the album since 1969.

Senza Sapere

Date: 4/22/2023
Format: LP
Label: Ume
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

Senza Sapere Niente di Lei (1969, Luigi Comencini) is one of the first scores composed by Ennio Morricone, for a Giallo film, just ahead of the great season of the cult Italian thriller genre forged by Dario Argento.

The soundtrack perfectly mirrors the philosophy behind the Morricone Segreto series, not only for its extraordinary dark-tinged and psychedelic vibes, but also because of the rarity of the score, which has surprisingly remained unreleased on vinyl (with the exception of two tracks included on a 1980 CAM anthology which is now pretty impossible to find).

With Senza Sapere Niente di Lei, Morricone composed one of his most dreamy and ethereal scores with a sweet and delicate theme unfolding in a lullaby to the rhythm of a waltz and interpreted in multiple keys: from lounge-jazz to experimental music.

The final result is a sensual and suave sound that matches well with the quintessential morbid style of Giallo cinema and the film’s plot: During winter-time in Milan, a young lawyer (Philippe Leroy) meets a girl with a mysterious past (Paola Pitagora), falling in love with her and inevitably heading towards irreparable consequences. Pressed on yellow vinyl for Record Store Day 2023.

MORE INFO

2006’s Offer the Light is the second release from Noctorum, the collaboration of Marty Willson-Piper (The Church, All About Eve, The Saints) and multi-instrumentalist/producer Dare Mason (The Church, Placebo, Wedding Present). Following the band’s most successful album to date, 2019’s The Afterlife, and 2021’s Record Store Day vinyl release of their debut Sparks Lane, this reissue of Offer The Light is eagerly awaited, especially as both The Afterlife and Sparks Lane sold out immediately and are currently out of print. . Offer The Light’s sonic blueprint doesn’t stray too far from The Church’s blend of Velvet Underground menace and the Byrd’s glorious jangle. It’s a rather beautiful “’70s rock album”, along the lines of Pink Floyd, but not too far from the band for which Willson-Piper is most famous.

Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

Phil Ochs is known primarily as a songwriter, but his talents extend far beyond that to short stories, poetry and satire. More than a torrent, less than a flood, the songs poured out of Phil so quickly that not all were able to find their place on his albums, with some of those songs only emerging decades later. The Warner/Chappell demos, which make up the main portion of this, release represent a period spanning Ochs' last two albums for Elektra, when he was finding his full strength as a songwriter and moving to include the lyrical in his repertoire, alongside the topical and satirical.

Released on CD in April 2020 this 20-song set makes its vinyl debut on a 2xLP set, coming first to record stores for Record Store Day 2023.

This Record Store Day, Porcupine Tree present a 12” of tracks pulled from the ‘In Absentia’ & Deadwing deluxe editions, previously unreleased on vinyl until now.

‘In Absentia’ was Porcupine Tree’s seventh studio album and was the first in a run of three albums that for many represent the pinnacle of the band's artistic achievements. Not many albums can claim to have created a new genre, but with its fusion of metal, progressive rock, ambient textures & acoustic singer-songwriter styled material, it became something of a blueprint for a generation of bands to come.

Originally released in 2005, ‘Deadwing’ was Porcupine Tree's eighth studio album following their breakthrough with ‘In Absentia’. It was critically lauded & solidified the bands’ position at forefront of modern progressive rock.

Format: 2 x LP
Label: HHC Records
Quantity: 2000
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

For RSD 2023 Bobby Digital’s origin story is revisited on an exclusive colored vinyl offering.

In November of 1998, Wu-Tang Clan mastermind RZA unleashed his first solo record, and his memorable alter-ego, Bobby Digital. Bobby Digital In Stereo is essentially a soundtrack. A soundtrack to a Blaxploitation/martial arts film that never was - at least outside of the imagination of the artist and the listener - as RZA channels the martial arts superhero (or perhaps anti-hero) inspirations of his youth into his Bobby Digital persona.

The recording follows a loose storyline of RZA’s endeavors as Bobby Digital - out to enlighten the people of the projects to the poisons of the hood that surrounded them every day. Production-wise, the release features a different approach from RZA’s work with Wu-Tang – a layered experimental keyboard driven sound instead of dusted sample-heavy beats – a technique RZA called the “Digital Orchestra.”

Bobby Digital In Stereo rode to #16 on the Billboard top 200 – peaked at #3 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop albums chart – and went on to RIAA Gold status. Bobby Digital In Stereo is now regarded by manyas the best of RZA’s Bobby Digital projects.

In 1984, Robert Diggs, now known as RZA, formed a rap group with his cousins Russell Jones and Gary Grice which they called “All In Together Now”.  Diggs and Grice then signed with Jamaica Records for management purposes and Jamaica convinced Tommy Boy Records to sign Diggs as a solo artist under the name Prince Rakeem in 1989.  “Ooh I Love You Rakeem” was released as a single but Diggs was subsequently dropped by Tommy Boy Records, and later went on to form the Wu Tang Clan. This remastered, colored, single contains the track title, “Sexcapades” & “Deadly Venoms” and was initially released in 1991.

MORE INFO

In 1992, The Residents pondered their 20th Anniversary. A best-of collection had been proposed, and the group gathered together to draw up a potential tracklist. All was well until one of the Eyeballed Entities, unconsciously expressing something none of them had been able to verbalize, threw up on that tracklist.

Once the dust had settled, somewhere in there, amongst the resulting soggy mess of vomit, paper and ink, The Residents noticed the proposed best-of song titles had congealed into a collage of new, never before heard tunes. 'Kick A Cat' and 'Picnic In The Jungle' had become 'Kick A Picnic', whilst 'Amber' and 'Six Things To A Cycle' had become 'Six Amber Things'. You get the idea.

This was it! Inspired by the rather repulsive mess that sat before them, the group chose to take the entire episode as a sign and began recording collages of select tracks from their back catalogue as instructed by those soggy scraps. What better way to celebrate twenty long dreary years of obscure stardom and sacrifice a few of their own sacred cows at the same time?!

Never before released on vinyl, and with their 50th Anniversary in mind in 2023, The Residents now present 'Our Finest Flowers' for your consideration again. The classic 1992 20th Anniversary album, which saw The Residents rework lyrics, melodies and themes from their entire back catalog into an album of new tracks, on vinyl for the first time. Includes an insightful new essay by JIM KNIPFEL. Celebrating twenty long dreary years of obscure stardom...

MORE INFO

The Rockfords could be called a Seattle supergroup, but the band was actually a reunion; Chris Friel and Danny Newcomb of the band Goodness and Rick Friel of Jody Watts were in a band called Shadow with Mike McCready of Pearl Jam during the mid-'80s; in the late '90s they re-formed and added Goodness vocalist Carrie Akre under the name The Rockfords (named after McCready's favorite TV show The Rockford Files). Together, they released one self-titled album for Epic in 2000 that featured production by John Goodmanson (Bikini Kill, Sleater-Kinney, Death Cab for Cutie) and a vocal turn by Nancy Wilson of Heart on the song "Riverwide;" the record was critically acclaimed but the band went back to their "day jobs" before recording a self-released EP, Waiting, also produced by Goodmanson and released in 2004. Real Gone Music's 2-LP release (in cherry wax) features both the self-titled LP and the EP, both never before on vinyl, in a sweet gatefold package. Limited to 2500 copies!

In 1968 The Rolling Stones returned to their blues roots on Beggars Banquet, which was immediately acclaimed as one of their landmark achievements. A strong acoustic Delta blues flavor colors much of the material, particularly “Prodigal Son” and “No Expectations.” Basic rock n’ roll is not forgotten with “Street Fighting Man” and “Sympathy For The Devil.” The lyrical bite of the material ensured the album’s place as one of the top blues-based records of all time.

These recordings can only be described as a Dub Clash, or as Roger Stefans calls it in the liner notes: “Dub Dubstock.” Taking the concept of pairing some of the greatest roots artists with some of the genre’s most beloved Dub artists adds a new dimension to the legacy of everyone involved, and serves as an epitaph to the careers of Toots Hibbert, Lee “Scratch” Perry, and Bunny “Striker” Lee. These recently departed legendary dub artists join in the enduring sounds of unreleased ‘70s productions from Osbourne Ruddock aka King Tubby who contributes to the project more than 30 years after his untimely demise.
Released on vinyl for the first time.

Label: Daupe Records
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

The UK-based emcee/producer duo of Sonnyjim & The Purist are pleased to release their stand-out album single, “Barz Simpson,’ which boasts guest appearances by the highly touted pairing of the late MF DOOM and Jay Electronica.

The track impeccably melds high-brow lyricism with The Purist’s dusty, lo-fi production, making this a treat for true school rap aficionados. The track is taken for the pairs well received full length effort, White Girl Wasted, which in addition to the Brighton-based beatsmith, gloats production by the likes of the legendary DJ Premier and Madlib.

But it’s “Barz Simpson” that has amassed the lion’s share of fanfare, amassing well over a million combined stream, with an abundance of online coverage: “The woozy funk beat on lead single “Barz Simpson” conjures a seamy, smoky, post-disco world where Sonnyjim, MF Doom, and Jay Electronica can run wild.” -Pitchfork.

Prior to this release, Sonnyjim has been making a name for himself through a relentless work ethic with collaborations from the likes of Conway The Machine, Kool Keith, Pink Siifu, Chris Crack, Slug (Atmosphere), Buckwild and more. The Purist has previously collaborated with the likes of Roc Maricano, Action Bronson, West Side Gunn, Your Old Droog, and Freddie Gibbs, among others.

This silver vinyl 7” is exclusive to indie record stores as part of Record Store Day 2023.

14 million streams ago...God, where to start? We formed in the late-70s to play a special Mass for the Bishop at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Brooklyn. Most of us met for the first time while rehearsing for that Mass and decided to keep in touch. We realized that Catholics (we were all Roman Catholics at the time) had nowhere to go to hear fun, inspirational music, so we began playing church halls and schools doing "rocked-up" versions of songs we pulled out of hymnals. Eventually some of us wrote our own stuff. We played hundreds of shows over the next 4 years, passing the hat for donations to pay for necessities that we needed to keep the group going (microphones, wires, gas for the van, and eventually, the "First Fruit" album, which we sold at concerts for just about cost). It was never about the money; it was all about spreading the Good News and having fun doing it. We consistently lost members through the years and gave our last concert in December 1983. Doug Prinzivalli, who owned a video copy of our appearance on a local TV show sometime in 1982, had been running "where are they now" (or more specifically, "who are they") contests on his California blog for years. It wasn't until he got his hands on a copy of the album (which is amazing considering we only printed 1,000 or so) that he found my name and tracked me down. That video was originally put on YouTube not by Doug, but by some visitor to his blog who thought it was too good not to share. --Sal Polichetti (Sonseed) (This is an exclusive 2023 Record Store Day release.)

Soul Jazz Records’ 200% Dynamite! set the benchmark for reggae meets funk compilations that has never been bettered. Out of print for over 15 years this new 2023 edition contains new tracks and is being released in a one-off limited-edition heavyweight red/blue vinyl pressing with a download code, exclusively for Record Store Day 2023.

Jam-packed with reggae tunes that crossed-over to become dancefloor hits such as Tenor Saw’s sound boy anthem ‘Ring the Alarm,’ K.C. White’s classic cut of the seminal ‘No, No, No’ and Augustus Pablo’s ‘Rockers Rock’, 200% Dynamite explores the links between reggae, jazz, funk and soul. Carrying on perfectly from 100% Dynamite, this second compilation continues to trace the history of Jamaican reggae and the influence of American styles such as funk and jazz had on this music.

Featured here are serious funk and rocksteady tunes from the likes of The Skatalites and Johnny Osbourne through to Jamaican jazz from masters such as Tommy McCook and Byron Lee, as well as some serious dub from the likes of Augustus Pablo, King Tubby and Jackie Mittoo. New bonus tracks on this new 2023 edition include seminal dancehall party cuts Sister Nancy’s ‘One Two’ and Chaka Demus and Pliers’ ‘Murder She Wrote’, alongside classic soul to reggae covers including cuts of Marlena Shaw’s ‘Women of the Ghetto’ and Odyssey’s ‘Don’t Tell Me Tell Her’.

“Once again, Soul Jazz goes digging through the reggae vaults and produces another sterling compilation. If you’re looking for a primer on the music of the island, you could do worse than buying every one of the records in this superb compilation series.” --All Music

MORE INFO

New one-off limited-edition heavyweight special-edition yellow vinyl pressing exclusively for Record Store Day 2023 of Soul Jazz Records’ Gipsy Rhumba: The Original Rhythm of Gipsy Rhumba in Spain 1965 – 1974, with a 28-page booklet and download code. The extensive booklet in this release contains definitive sleevenotes by the musicologist Jose Manuel Gómez, record designs and stunning photography from the celebrated photographer Jacques Leonard.

Soul Jazz Records’ Gipsy Rhumba is the first album outside of Spain to focus on one of the most exciting musical culture clashes ever. In the early 1960s, Gypsies from the Catalan region of Spain, primarily known as the creators of Flamenco, came up with a fascinating hybrid style – Gipsy Rhumba – which blended the Latin and Rhumba music of Cuba and the Caribbean together with their own Flamenco, as well as the emerging Rock ‘N’ Roll from America.

“A capsule of supercharged clapping and joyous vocals” -- The Guardian

“Must-have”. “You all know Gipsy Kings’ blend of flamenco and Latin rhythms … but where did this convergence of Latin music styles occur? This compilation demonstrates how mid-1960’s Barcelona hot-housed gypsy musicians who employed the rumba rhythm… Gipsy Rhumba unearths a forgotten corner of Europop.”-- The Sunday Times

“Musicologists aren’t the only ones who will enjoy pulling at the threads that bind this particular sound clash … Messing with the traditional form is daring at any time, but the result was something quite fantastic, potent and intriguing, full of marvelous grooves and compelling rhythms.”-- Irish Times

“A victory for gipsy party music… A collection worthy of conquering the world”--Dagens Nyheter, Sweden

“Punchy, rhythmic and popular …specialist Rhumba research starts here with this compilation released by the London Soul Jazz label. Another genre of pop history.” -- Junge Welt, Germany

MORE INFO

Soul Jazz Records’ new Holy Church of the Ecstatic Soul: Gospel, Funk and Soul at the Crossroads 1971-83 is a one-off limited-edition heavyweight red vinyl pressing + download code exclusively for Record Store Day 2023.

The album draws upon the extensive links between Black American Gospel music and Soul music, showing how the sensibilities of gospel artists such as Shirley Caesar, Dorothy Norwood, Andraé Crouch and others crossed over into secular soul music during this period.
Many of the most successful soul artists – from Aretha Franklin to Al Green, The Staples Singers to Sam Cooke – all drew upon their upbringing in the church for their musical inspiration. This album discusses how important the links between the Black church and Soul music were in creating Soul, and spotlights some of the many important (and also little-known) Gospel artists who walked this line between sacred music and soul, funk and disco in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Holy Church of the Ecstatic Soul shows how sacred Gospel music was at home with Stevie Wonder and Blaxploitation-style funk and produced music celebrated both in New York’s underground discos (The Paradise Garage, Studio 54, etc) and later sampled by the likes of Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg and Mary J Blige.

This new edition features classic New York post-punk, punk funk, synth wave and no wave tracks from Arthur Russell/Dinosaur L, James White and the Contortions, The Theoretical Girls, Mars, Konk, Material, Bush Tetras, and Lizzy Mercier Descloux alongside rare tracks by the likes of Alan Vega (Suicide), Chain Gang and Implog.

New York Noise sums up the point in time and space where dance music and punk rock first met as New York’s No Wave artists such as Glenn Branca, James White alongside dance music’s experimental pioneers including Arthur Russell (Dinosaur l), Bill Laswell (Material), and Konk created new musical art forms out of this union.

“Compilations like this are necessary because they document bygone fragments of time and keep them alive for younger generations. Compilations like this are dangerous because they tend to fall in the hands of young bands who spend more time looking behind than ahead.” --All Music

MORE INFO

There's something intangible about Celeste, the Soundcarriers’ second album, originally released in 2010. It has a light, lucid quality, almost like driving exhausted through a strange city at night. Freeflowing yet tethered, dreamy yet attacking, the band continue the fight to reconcile competing impulses. Various threads just about keep the shimmering tapestry from tearing. Haunting folk melodies underpinned by rhythmic static and the physicality of the totally analogue recording and mixing, baroque keyboard counterpoints and sweeping arrangements. The opener “Last Broadcast” seems to encapsulate this but it's almost as if the album gets the angst out of its system with this track and is free to explore the quieter, less crowded back streets. After the smoke of “Last Broadcast” has cleared, the twisting road takes in the soft introspection of “Hideaway” and “Morning Haze”, both tracks morphing into heavy psyche grooves or the eastern tinged psyche funk of “Signals” and “Rise And Fall”. Or takes another turn with the tightly arranged opening segment of “Long Highway”. Somehow it still manages to fit in ‘60s pop gems like “There Only Once”.

An album to really lose yourself in, yet more concise than the sprawling Harmonium and more relaxed and freeflowing than the nervy rush of Entropicalia, Celeste could be arguably their most indispensable album and not to damn it with faint praise, their most listenable.
Originally released in 2010 to critical acclaim and quickly achieving cult-status especially with a limited 1000 limited vinyl pressing, The Soundcarriers Celeste has never been repressed until now. This repress on black vinyl will be exclusive to RSD.

This concert recording was first issued on vinyl in 1983, and has not been reissued since. This new press (on heavyweight colour vinyl) comes 40 years later as an homage to the late Sonny Stitt who died soon after the recordings, in 1982.

Sun Ra

Haverford College, January 25 1980

DETAILS

Format: LP
Label: Modern Harmonic
Quantity: 1400
Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

This Sun Ra 1980 solo set at Haverford College has been kicking around the internet and in the digital libraries of Ra collectors for years, though it has not previously been properly mastered or commercially issued.

Like many events in Ra's history, this gig has a story that goes beyond the music. Ra's presence onstage that night came about through an unforeseen chain of events that unfolded up until concert time. This is a very unique performance. Sun Ra is notorious for his aggressive keyboard attack and seemingly schizophrenic stylings—which can musically rocket from A to Z and back without transitional bridges. This set offers a marked contrast. Ra's instrument here is the celeste-like Fender Rhodes electric piano, which has a distinct sound (instantly recognizable in the Doors' "Riders on the Storm") and an interesting history. There are few pyrotechnics in this performance, and much restraint. Ra sounds relaxed and contemplative. It's Soothing Sounds for Saturnians.

The meditative concert covers Ra's customary approach to solo outings: 1) original Ra crowd pleasers ("Space is the Place," "Love in Outer Space"); 2) standards ("St. Louis Blues," "Rhapsody in Blue," "Over the Rainbow"); and 3) untitled improvisations (here assigned the titles "Haverford Impromptu" numbers one and two).

Release type: 'RSD First'

MORE INFO

Record Store Day 2023 coincides with the tenth anniversary of English singer-songwriter Frank Turner’s fifth studio album, Tape Deck Heart, and brings with it the next in the series of Turner’s collectible Tenth Anniversary Editions.

The double vinyl set includes the original album and is accompanied by the previously unreleased “Evolution Demos,” mastered and cut by Frank Arkwright at Abbey Road Studios and featuring the singles “Recovery” and “The Way I Tend To Be.”

This expanded reissue is pressed on 180g maroon vinyl and packaged in a striking, metallic-printed gatefold sleeve within an O-Card. The 4-page insert contains lyrics and new liner notes written by Frank, reflecting on the album and his journey over the last ten years. The artwork features designs by two tattoo artists – a painting of Frank on the O-Card by Matt Hunt and gatefold sleeve illustrations by Heather Ann Law.

The album was recorded at El Dorado Studios (Burbank, CA) in 2012 with his band, The Sleeping Souls, and produced by Rich Costey. The sessions came off the back of extensive touring for Frank’s fourth studio album, England Keep My Bones, which had included a sold-out headline show at Wembley Stadium. Tape Deck Heart debuted at No. 2 on the U.K. album charts.
In Frank’s own words, “A ‘Tape Deck Heart’ is someone who has a love of music above anything else. I don’t miss cassettes, but I am of an age – like many of us – whose music listening life was defined by [the Walkman] and C90 tapes. This album is about self-examination, running through your own faults, about change, and about ending. Something like that.”

MORE INFO

Ultramagnetic MCs are back.

Known for their abstract and futuristic style, Kool Keith and Ced Gee pioneered the New York Hip-Hop sound in the ‘80s alongside contemporaries such as KRS One and LL Cool J, before disbanding in the mid 1990s. Bolstering a long, genre-spanning solo career Kool Keith cemented his legacy in the Hip-Hop, Punk and Electronic music circles with thematic albums under aliases such as Dr. Octagon, Dr. Dooom and Black Elvis, while Ced Gee stayed mostly behind the scenes providing production work for iconic artists including The Prodigy and Lee "Scratch" Perry. Backing the legendary duo is Nashville-based oddball band THETAN, who provided the entire instrumentation for the recent Kool Keith collaborative album 'Space Goretex'.

This 12” single offers up two brand new tracks of spaced out funky hip hop. The B-side is emblazoned with an etching of the Ultramagnetic MCs logo, engraved by none other than Dan Emery at Black Matter Mastering.

MORE INFO

The cinematic concert event Digital Ghost showcases the incredible musicianship and vocal ability of Underoath. This live experience takes the fan track-by-track through the entire Voyeurist album and provides an emotional journey that has so uniquely defined the band over their incredible career. “The album concept came out of the larger idea that everything is a manipulation…from the news to social media to how you present yourself, even to the people closest to you. Everything is part truth and part fiction. We wanted to strip Underoath back down to exclusively truth and cut out all distractions – and made the record on our own along with our engineer JJ Revel. The result is Voyeurist.” Pressed on Sangria-colored vinyl for Record Store Day 2023.
