A Charlie Brown Christmas, certified 4X Platinum by the RIAA in 2016, is one of the best-selling jazz albums in history, second only to Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue; and it’s no surprise: Guaraldi’s engaging score to the synonymous holiday television special has introduced generations of children and their parents to the joys of jazz music, with tracks like the instantly recognizable “Linus and Lucy,” and yuletide favorite “Christmas Time Is Here.” The album was inducted into the GRAMMY® Hall of Fame in 2007 and the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry five years later, and continues to be a perennial favorite, thanks to annual airings of the Christmas TV special.

Made to play on the RSD3 mini-turntable, the RSD3 A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS “BLIND BOX” single comes in an outer box that reproduces the original 12” album art, and includes one of four possible songs; “Christmas Time is Here (Vocal),” “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” “Linus and Lucy” and “Skating.” Each track comes with its own unique pull-out poster.

Format: 7" Vinyl
Label: Legacy
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

Frequently cited as one of the most important alternative songs of the 2000s, “Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)” – the opening track on debut album Funeral – was an early introduction to the trademark Arcade Fire sound and encapsulates the essence of the music and themes on Funeral. The B-side, “My Buddy” by the Alvino Rey Orchestra, pays tribute to Will and Win Butler’s late grandfather, the Jazz musician Alvino Rey whose passing during the early part of Arcade Fire’s career would greatly influence Funeral.

This RSD Black Friday 7” replicates the original Merge Records single – first released in June 2004 – the debut single from the band. Originally limited to 1500 copies, it has become a highly collectable item amongst fans over the years.

Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

The impact of Robert Johnson's talent, be it his intense vocals, outstanding guitar skills or masterful songwriting, is still being measured.

As a youth Johnson learned to play the harmonica, and according to Son House, Johnson was pretty good at it. His real ambition was to master the guitar and sometimes during a break when his idols Son House and Willie Brown performed he would pick up one the guitars and try playing it himself annoying his idols. House’s story of the events: “Such a racket you never heard. It’d make the people mad. I’d come back in I’d scold him about it. Don’t do that Robert. You drive the people nuts. You can’t play nothing.”

Driven by the negative response to his inadequate abilities on the guitar, Johnson disappears for a year or two, returning with stunning results as a master of the Mississippi Delta blues style not only absorbing the immediate influences of his mentors but perfecting his craft one step further with unprecedented intensity creating a guitar mastery and expressive vocal emotion that radiates and inspires to this day.

For RSD Black Friday 2019 Traffic Entertainment presents two of Johnson’s most iconic sides as a 78 RPM microgroove record housed in a glorious reproduction of the Vocalion sleeve wrapped in a full color OBI with detailed liner notes.

MORE INFO

Blind Willie Johnson was the greatest and most popular guitar evangelist, and influenced generations of musicians. His unique, intense, emotional and haunting gruff voice—coupled with some of the finest slide-guitar of any of his peers—firmly established Johnson’s status as one of the premier gospel-blues artists of all time.

Between 1927 and 1930, Johnson recorded 30 powerful, timeless, landmark songs for Columbia Records in five sessions in Dallas, New Orleans, and Atlanta, generating strong sales and national fame.

On December 3, 1927, in a temporary studio in the Deep Ellum district of Dallas, Johnson recorded six groundbreaking songs, including the iconic slide guitar classic, “Dark Was the Night, Cold Was the Ground.” Johnson’s haunting response to Christ’s crucifixion remains one of the masterpieces of American music. Ry Cooder described it as “the most soulful, transcendent piece in all American Music.”Jack White called it “the greatest example of slide guitar ever recorded.”

For RSD Black Friday 2019 Traffic Entertainment presents two of Johnson’s most iconic sides as a 78 RPM microgroove record housed in a glorious reproduction of the Columbia sleeve wrapped in a full color OBI with detailed liner notes.

MORE INFO

Velvert Turner is largely known for being a protégé and student of Jimi Hendrix, who he met as a teenager in New York in the late ‘60s. The influence is immediately clear, with respect to both Turner’s guitar work and vocals. Some have even mistaken his only album for a "lost" Hendrix recording, and it’s hard to blame them. Velvert Turner Group’s self-titled 1972 release, which aptly closes with a tribute to Hendrix (a cover of “Freedom”), has been out of print for decades. Now it’s coming back to vinyl with a color pressing, mastered from original analog tapes, exclusively for RSD Black Friday.

A1 “Madonna (Of The Seven Moons)” A2 Talkin' 'Bout My Baby” A3 “Country Chicken” A4 “Strangely Neww” A5 “Scarlet Warrior”

Desperado: The Soundtrack

DETAILS

Date: 11/29/2019
Format: 2 x LP
Label: Real Gone Music
Quantity: 1800
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

Like his buddy and occasional collaborator Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez is one of those film directors whose movies always come with incredible soundtracks. But it’s tough to top the array of music he assembled for his gun ‘n’ guitar-slinging western Desperado, the 1995 sequel to his breakthrough debut El Mariachi. Not only was the Desperado score composed and performed by the L.A. bands Los Lobos (whose performance of “Mariachi Suite” won a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Performance) and Tito and Tarantula (memorably seen the following year as the house band at the Titty Twister in Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn), but it also boasted contributions from Dire Straits, Link Wray, Carlos Santana, and the Latin Playboys among other artists. A blend of ranchera, Chicano, and garage rock, it’s the perfect accompaniment for the blood-soaked imagery of the film…and for this, the first vinyl release of the soundtrack, we at Real Gone Music have created the perfect visual accompaniment as well. For the gatefold jacket housing our 2 X LP set, we commissioned Illustrator Matt Ryan Tobin to create one-of-a-kind, never-to-be-reprinted illustrated artwork, a lyrical yet lurid tableau that was approved not just by Robert Rodriguez but also by all four actors depicted (Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek, Steve Buscemi, and Joaquim de Almeida). Inside the gatefold, we designed two 4-color inner sleeves offering production stills from the film, and pressed up 2500 copies in sultry “Blood & Gunpowder” vinyl. This pressing is exclusive for RSD Black Friday, and, again, both the jacket and the colored vinyl will never be reprinted…this might be the most collectible release we have ever created!

1. Los Lobos with Antonio Banderas  “Canción Del Mariachi (Morena De Mi Corazón” 2. Dire Straits “Six Blade Knife” 3. Link Wray & His Ray “Jack the Ripper” 4. Latin Playboys “Manifold De Amour” 5. Latin Playboys “Forever Night Shade Mary” 6. Roger & The Gypsies “Pass the Hatchet” 7. Los Lobos “Bar Fight” 8. Tito & Tarantula “Strange Face of Love” 9. Los Lobos “Bucho’s Gracias/Navajas Attacks” 10. Los Lobos “Bulletproof” 11. Carlos Santana “Bella” 12. Salma Hayek “Quédate Aqui” 13. Los Lobos “Rooftop Action” 14. Los Lobos “Phone Call” 15.

Sid Vicious

Sid Lives!

DETAILS

Date: 11/29/2019
Format: 2 x LP
Label: Jungle Records
Quantity: 1350
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release

MORE INFO

The resurrection of SID VICIOUS continues with SID LIVES' - a 2xLP set of Sid's four last-ever shows, containing 39 tracks, mostly previously unreleased and packaged with comprehensive 8,000-word notes in the gatefold sleeve. It tells the story of Sid: firstly in an eyewitness account from surviving guitarist Steve Dior; secondly in a lengthy SId, Nancy and Sex Pistols day-by-day timeline from pre-Pistols early days to his demise (and inevitable Nancy death theories); plus a song-by-song background.

Since his death Sid has come to symbolize the Sex Pistols - always courting controversy he out-did old college-mate Johnny Rotten in the punk outrage stakes. With an impressive rock'n'roll voice and an abundance of attitude, just three memorable solo singles was all that he left - plus an industry of posters, documentaries and films.

These recordings, backed by the New York Dolls' late rhythm section of Arthur Kane and Jerry Nolan along with guitarist Steve Dior (at that time trading together as 'The Idols'), show the direction Sid would have gone for his next recordings had he lived. This is the definitive Sid Vicious release for all fans of the punk-rock scene. TRI-COLOR (RED, WHITE & BLUE) VINYL.

This RSD Black Friday release also features the Last Day in July EP which preceded the album, as well as two previously unreleased tracks from the album sessions.

It references the patterns and repetitions that exist in nature often mirrored in human creations and also the complexity and fragility of our relationships, with one another and with the world that surrounds us.

Leon Redbone

Strings And Jokes, Live in Bremen 1977

DETAILS

Date: 11/29/2019
Format: 2 x LP
Label: Made In Germany
Quantity: 300
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release

MORE INFO

Wanderer between the worlds. No other words can describe the musical work of Leon Redborne. His first official stage appearance took place in 1971 at the Mariposa Folk Festival in Orillia, Ontario, and soon after he began performing in local clubs where he became famous with his unique style. His trademarks were a perfect suit (white jacket, black trousers), dark sunglasses, a moustache and a white fedora. Best known for his interpretations of music from the Depression Era--Blues, Ragtime, Folk and Tin Pan Alley—laying on top his remarkable singing style. Influenced by the music of Fats Waller, Jelly Roll Morton, Jimmy Rodgers or Irving Berlin, his interpretations are legendary.

Both concerts on this RSD Black Friday release took place in Bremen, Northern Germany, in 1977 and show two different sides of Leon Redbone. At the first concert, at the "Glocke", he was accompanied by tube player Jonathan Dorn, and the second, at the "Post-Aula" was a solo concert, pure and simple. Both are electrifying because of his unique performance and the combination of Blues and influences from Folk-Jazz. He sings, yodels, murmurs and hums and knows to fascinate his fans with his warm and outstanding voice. A must have for every fan of traditional and not commonplace music.

Tony Joe White

That On The Road Look "Live"

DETAILS

Date: 11/29/2019
Format: 2 x LP
Label: Real Gone Music
Quantity: 1000
Release type: RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release

MORE INFO

The only live album recorded at Tony Joe White's peak…and it's never been available at retail before. Recorded in the fall of 1971 while TJW was opening for Creedence Clearwater Revival, this show became the proverbial "legendary lost live album," and for good reason: Warner Bros. recorded the concert on multitrack tape, fully intending it to be released. But for some reason lost to the mists of time, the album never came out until Rhino Handmade released it on CD in 2010 via their website. Which means it never went to regular retail at all in any format, and that's a real shame, because you could make a good argument that it's the best Tony Joe White album of 'em all, with a set list to die for, a great band (featuring Duck Dunn on bass), pristine fidelity, and plenty of Swamp Fox attitude. This exclusive RSD Black Friday white vinyl pressing comes inside a gatefold jacket featuring a front cover cut-out displaying the art on one of two inner sleeves, with great liner notes by Ben Vaughn. 

1. “Roosevelt and Ira Lee” 2.” A Night in the Life of a Swamp Fox” 3. “Rainy Night in Georgia” 4. “Mississippi River” 5. “Lustful Earl and the Married Woman” 6. “Willie and Laura Mae Jones” 7. “Back to the Country” 8. “Band Introduction” 9. “Traveling Bone” 10. “Stormy Monday” 11. “My Kind of Woman” 12. “Polk Salad Annie” 13. “That on the Road Look”

MORE INFO

The Comet Is Coming is: Danalogue (synths), Betamax (drums) and King Shabaka (saxophone) and they follow up their critically acclaimed Trust in The Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery with The Afterlife EP.

“The two records can be seen as companions, that cannot exist without each other, like day and night, light and dark, creation and destruction. They were made together, at the same time, and have always been intended to be experienced together,” says Danalogue. “The Afterlife has been a topic of deep consideration and one of the keys to spiritual mythology around the world for millenia… The idea of a form of continuation of consciousness from our perceived reality into another state brings an extra dimension of meaning into the gravitas of our actions in this life, our respect and reverence for our ancestors, as well as the sense of a continuum of life over an infinite, timeless void.”

1. “All That Matters is the Moments” (ft. Joshua Idehen) 2. “The Softness of the Present” 3. “The Afterlife” 4. “Lifeforce Part I” 5. “Lifeforce Part II” 6. “The Seven Planetary Heavens”

Miles Davis

Miles in Tokyo

DETAILS

Date: 11/29/2019
Format: LP
Label: Get On Down
Quantity: 2200
Release type: 'RSD First' Release

MORE INFO

Miles Davis was on the verge of forming one of his most acclaimed ensembles in 1964. It was this year that he travelled to perform in Japan for the first time, bringing with him 3/4ths of the musicians that would form his famed "second great quartet": Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on double bass, and Tony Williams on drums. In addition, the jazz legend brought along saxophonist Sam Rivers to replace the recently exited George Coleman.

Davis and Rivers never developed any major chemistry and frequently found their distinct styles clashing (or perhaps dueling) in their performances. Rivers would ultimately be dismissed from the group at the end of their trip, leading to the arrival of Wayne Shorter, and the inception of the second great quintet.

The partnership of Miles Davis and Sam Rivers may have been short-lived, but it did produce the live album Miles In Tokyo. The record is a rare jewel in Miles Davis' discography, featuring high-energy live versions of songs by Rodgers & Hart, Cole Porter, and Richard Carpenter, as well as a restlessly fast-paced take on the Davis staple "So What". This collection has previously only been available in Japan, but is now presented on vinyl for the first time in America by Get On Down, just in time for RSD Black Friday.

A Side : “If I Were A Bell”, “My Funny Valentine”
B Side : “So What”, “Walkin”, “All Of You”

Dr. John

Babylon

DETAILS

Format: LP
Label: Get On Down
Quantity: 2500
Release type: 'RSD First' Release

MORE INFO

When Dr. John hit the studio in 1968 to record Babylon, America was in a very turbulent period. On top of that, Dr. John was being pursued by various Los Angeles authorities for a handful of criminal offenses. It was, in his own words: "a heavy time for me."

This set the stage for Babylon being a reflection of the chaotic and tumultuous time that he was living in. He and his band dove deeper into the voodoo-inflected psychedelic rock and the R&B of Gris-Gris, while touching upon elements of free jazz and Captain Beefheart-style avant garde. Babylon stands out as a psychedelic swamp of apocalyptic lyrical content, drunk, disorienting experimentation, and a fascinating entry into Dr. John's catalogue well-worthy of his expansive legacy.

Out of print on vinyl for 40 years, Get On Down is all too eager to reissue this unique recording for RSD Black Friday. In keeping with the album's hallucinogenic sound, it is presented on trippy never to be repeated splatter-colored vinyl and housed in a deluxe gatefold jacket.

A1. “Babylon” A2. “Glowin’” A3. “Black Window Spider” A4. “Barefoot Lady”

While Edan’s critically acclaimed debut, Primitive Plus, was a celebration of hip-hop’s golden age and a true throwback, his sophomore album, Beauty And The Beat, is a vast musical collage that contains many different influences; Hip-hop, rock, pop, dusty breaks, hazy loops, luxurious off-kilter samples and curveball tempo changes that are all crafted into one cohesive piece of art.
In 2015, FACT placed it at number 30 on the "100 Best Indie Hip-Hop Records of All Time" list. In 2013 NME placed it at number 392 on the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list.

“A goofy psychedelic gem. It’s like ‘The Grey Album’ in technicolour” - Vice

“Edan has a seemingly bottomless musical curiosity… he unites old school hip-hop’s aesthetics with a previous generation’s sense of grooviness” - The Washington Post

“Impossibly ambitious, as psychedelic as Mythos, as unrelenting as the Ultramagnetic MCs, Edan is a master in possession of his own style. One of the best and most original records to come out this decade” - XLR8R

“A full tab of b-boy psychedelia… a creative quantum leap forward” - XXL

“With an awe-inspiring imagination in tow, Edan drops his own magical mystery tour” - URB

Format: LP
Label: Get on Down
Quantity: 2200
Release type: 'RSD First' Release

MORE INFO

Throughout the 1970s, legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock engaged in a prolonged period of experimentation across sounds and recording formats, releasing several albums for Columbia that were only issued in Japan. 1979's Directstep was one such album, one that made use of a new form of recording technology called "Direct-To-Disc." This method recorded masters, in real time, to acetate discs, rendering incredibly high fidelity LP pressings, but sacrificing the ability to edit or overdub, a challenge Hancock and his group were more than up to.

Directstep utilized other technological advancements as well, incorporating brand new electronic instrument technology such as the electronic wind instrument the Lyricon, the freshly released Propet-5 synthesizer, and of course the Sennheiser Vocoder which would become a key part of the artist’s arsenal during his electro-funk period in the 1980s.

Beyond all that, Directstep is an incredibly solid collection of Herbie Hancock material, featuring stirring remakes of Hancock staples "Butterfly" and "I Thought It Was You" as well as brand new track "Shiftless Shuffle." Get On Down is proud to present this reissue of Directstep, a gem of jazz-fusion, available on vinyl for the first time in 30 years for RSD Black Friday!

A Side: “Butterfly”
B Side : “Shiftless Shuffle”, “I Thought It Was You”

Release type: 'RSD First' Release

MORE INFO

Known to music fans around the world as the "King of the Boogie," John Lee Hooker endures as one of the true superstars of the blues genre: the ultimate beholder of cool. His work is widely recognized for its impact on modern music – his simple, yet deeply effective songs transcend borders and languages around the globe.

"Recorded at the Rising Sun Celebrity Jazz Club in Montreal, Quebec, on May 5, 1977, Black Night Is Falling finds John Lee Hooker in fine voice and backed by a driving band composed of John Garcia on guitar, Steve Jones on bass, and Larry 'Wild Man' Martin on drums, with the end result being an excellent example of Hooker at his best. Highlights include impressive romps through Hooker's signature tunes, 'Boom Boom,' which simply blazes with raw energy here, and 'One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer,' which is delivered as a wonderfully paced barroom cautionary tale. This is what the live Hooker sounded like with a sympathetic band behind him, a band that luckily wasn't afraid to push him a little." - All Music

The Collectors Edition coming for RSD Black Friday iincludes a bonus disc of unreleased material (a 17 min jam of "Rock Steady" plus three "Rock Steady"remixes) and a brand new cover portrait of John Lee Hooker by John Rummen.

Side A: 1. “Chicken And Gravy” 2. “Serves Me Right To Suffer” 3. “Boom Boom”

The Lost Tapes

Label: Stony Plain Records
Quantity: 500
Release type: 'RSD First' Release

MORE INFO

Regarded as pioneers of the folk & Americana genre, Ian & Sylvia first came to prominence in the early ‘60s Greenwich Village and Yorkville folk scenes, performing alongside Bob Dylan (they were also managed by Albert Grossman), Joni Mitchell, and Gordon Lightfoot (who they made famous by being the first to record “Early Morning Rain”) and headlining at the now-famous 1963 Newport Folk Festival. Ian's composition "Four Strong Winds" is now considered a standard and a CBC poll in 2005 named it the "most essential" piece of Canadian music. Ian & Sylvia were one of the first artists to explore an electric Country Rock sound, recording with both New York and Nashville musicians.
In early 2019 Sylvia discovered a box of old 1/4" analog tapes in her attic that were professionally recorded in the early 1970s in front of a live studio audience. More than twenty previously unreleased recordings included many of Ian & Sylvia's classics, but also enough recordings that had never been included on any Ian & Sylvia album to make up a full album, presented here as a double vinyl release for RSD Black Friday.

LP1:
1 “Keep On The Sunny Side” 2 “Darcy Farrow” 3 “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” 4 “When First Unto This Country” 5 “Come All You Fair and Tender Ladies” 6 “Four Rode By” 7 “Nancy Whiskey” 8 “Four Strong Winds” 9 “Little Beggarman” 10 “The French Song” 11 “Summer Wages” 12 “Crazy Arms” 13 “I'll Fly Away”

THE FUNK STARTS HERE

Here it is, rumored no more: the demo Bootsy Collins and his band recorded for James Brown in 1969 that won them the title “The J.B.’s” – and changed the course of popular music. Also included is the complete version of “When You Feel It, Grunt If You Can,” presenting two never-issued songs in a 22-minute medley, and the unreleased instrumental “The Wedge.” The companion piece to Now-Again’s first-ever issue of the lost J.B.’s album These Are The J.B.’s (NA 5119).

All tracks mixed by Mario Caldato, directly from Brown’s original multi-track masters. Contains extensive booklet with full annotation, liner notes by Brown historian Alan Leeds and never-before-published photos.

Release type: 'RSD First' Release

MORE INFO

“Let’s show the people coast to coast that we here in New Orleans can party! Are you ready to roll ’78 and light up 79?!” announces the boisterous (and probably slightly buzzed) emcee introducing The Marshall Tucker Band to the tight-knit community of joint-passing, beer-cheersing rock ‘n’ rolling regulars at The Warehouse, New Orleans’ legendary 1970s music hall. Not only would the audience of 2,000+ longhairs enjoy the New Year’s Eve concert that night, but so would a huge audience of radio listeners rockin’ in simulcast nationwide. The emcee claimed that this was the largest radio audience ever to hear a broadcast and at the time, it probably was. The band elevated themselves to the occasion and delivered an absolutely smokin’ performance of what were already their most memorable and cherished hits.
• Sourced from the original 24-track tapes
• Mixed in Macon, Georgia in 2019 by Paul Hornsby, the original Capricorn Records producer who recorded and produced their first six gold and platinum albums.
• Featuring never before published photos by The Warehouse’s photographer, Sidney Smith, plus images of archival documents form the recording engineers.

MORE INFO

2001 marked the release of Nas' fifth studio full-length, on which made the effort to re-establish himself in the underground style which first brought him to prominence. The title is even a nod to his own roots: Stillmatic, a clear and present reference and sequel of sorts to Illmatic. The move worked perfectly; Stillmatic was hailed by critics as a brilliant return to form, earning rave reviews from rap outlets such as The Source and HipHopDX as well as from more mainstream publications like The Rolling Stone and The Village Voice.

Now approaching two decades after the record's release, Get On Down proudly brings you this deluxe double LP reissue. Stillmatic, unavailable on vinyl since its original 2001 release, is now presented with remastered audio in a silver vinyl pressing exclusively for RSD Black Friday!

The National

Live at the Greek Theatre, Berkeley, CA, 9.24+ 9/25/2018 (The Mike Millard Method)

DETAILS

Date: 11/29/2019
Format: 3 x Cassette
Label: 4AD
Quantity: 1000
Release type: 'RSD First' Release

MORE INFO

A three cassette release of the National’s September 24th and 25th shows at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, CA. Recorded by Erik Flannigan using legendary taper Mike “The Mike” Millard Method. Flannigan explained the idea behind using The Mike Millard Method in the cassette’s liner notes, saying:
“Arguably the most celebrated audience taper of the period, Mike Millard, recorded in and around Southern California beginning in 1974 and continued into the early ’90s. Millard’s legend is built in part on the cunning and subterfuge he used to get his nearly 15-pound cassette deck and microphones into venues like the The Forum, Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, and The Roxy.

For years I have pondered what made Millard’s recordings so good, and eventually I had an idea: What if you recorded a concert today with the same equipment Millard used in 1977? Would it sound like his tapes? Would it tap into his Midas touch?

The National was kind enough to let us test the Millard Method for two concerts at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California last September. These live recordings were made with vintage AKG 451E microphones and a restored Nakamichi 550 cassette deck which are identical to those used by Millard circa 1975-81. The idea was to see if we could recreate what Matt Berninger calls the “juicy sonic magic” Millard captured in his 1970s field recordings.

Together with my friend and filmmaker David Dubois, we also produced a short documentary about Millard, his recording methods, and our attempt to recreate his work at the National shows in Berkeley, a venue that is utterly unchanged since the ’70s.

With the advent of smartphones, thousands of people routinely record part of the show when they attend a National concert or any other performance. Forty years ago, when nobody would dare do that, one man made it his life’s work to preserve legendary concerts on tape.
