USED VINYL ALERT:
This week's fresh load of used new arrivals comes from all over the area, but the most eye-popping stuff in the batch comes out of Detroit. One of the best collections of soul, jazz, funk and gospel we've seen in years hits the floor Friday, with a ton of original/first pressings.
Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder, Otis Redding, plus lots of Nina Simone, which we dont see too much and get asked about far more often! Just about the whole King Records catalog of James Brown is here, plus plenty of great catalog titles from Parliament and Funkadelic, Hugh Masakela and Olatunji. All sorts of soul-jazz treats from Gil Scott-Heron, Roy Ayers, Phil Upchurch, Brother Jack McDuff, Leo Wright, and many many more, including a nice crowd of private press soul and gospel records. Plenty of obscure and popular 70s/80s electro funk in here too, including Mandre and Mantronix!
A huge stack of Johnny Cash, plus plenty of grippable Stones, Floyd, Beatles, Boss and the like. A nice selection of random rap and more contemporary indie, folk and rock, round out a collection you wont want to pass up!
BLACK FRIDAY IS NOVEMBER 28, 2014:
Strictly Discs will be the place to be this Post-Thanksgiving-Shopping-Melee-Day, also known as Black Friday.
And that's because certain indie stores across the country will be the place to get special releases created just for you, for giving and getting this holiday season, and they're scheduled for release on Black Friday, November 28, 2014.
Now, this is not Record Store Day, Jr., but it is brought to you by the powers-that-be at Record Store Day. This is a group of special releases you can only find at certain independent record stores nationwide. The magic of these pieces (many uber-limited) is that every one of them is something someone will really LOVE to get, and you'll really ENJOY giving. And you may have the added nice feeling of supporting a local, independently owned (Strictly Discs, Independently Owned since 1988) business during the holidays.

PINK FLOYD ENDLESS RIVER COMING 11/10:
The Endless River has as its starting point the music that came from the 1993 Division Bell sessions, when David Gilmour, Rick Wright and Nick Mason played freely together at Britannia Row and Astoria studios. This was the first time they had done so since the 'Wish You Were Here' sessions in the seventies. Those sessions resulted in The Division Bell, the band's last studio album.
In 2013 David Gilmour and Nick Mason revisited the music from those sessions and decided that the tracks should be made available as part of the Pink Floyd repertoire. It would be the last time the three of them would be heard together. The band have spent the last year recording and upgrading the music,using the advantages of modern studio technology to create The Endless River.
The Endless River is a tribute to Rick Wright, whose keyboards are at the heart of the Pink Floyd sound. It is a mainly instrumental album with one song, 'Louder Than Words', (with new lyrics by Polly Samson), arranged across four sides and produced by David Gilmour, Phil Manzanera, Youth and Andy Jackson.
180 gram vinyl in gatefold package with 16 page book of never-released photos from the original sessions. Pre-order now.

Bob Dylan Bootleg Series #11: Basement Tapes RAW Coming November 4th:
Compiled from meticulously restored original tapes - many found only recently - this three-LP set includes 38 highlights of Dylan's legendary 1967 recording sessions with members of his touring ensemble who would later achieve their own fame as The Band.
Having transformed music and culture during the early 1960s, Dylan reached unparalleled heights across 1965 and 1966 through the release of three historic albums, the groundbreaking watershed single ''Like A Rolling Stone,'' a controversial and legendary 'electric' performance at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival and wildly polarizing tours of the United States, Europe and the United Kingdom. Dylan's mercurial rise and prodigious outpouring of work during that decade came to an abrupt halt in July 1966 when he was in a serious motorcycle accident in upstate New York.
Recovering from his injuries and away from the public eye for the first time in years, Dylan ensconced himself, along with Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, Garth Hudson and, later, Levon Helm, in the basement of a small house, dubbed ''Big Pink'' by the group, in West Saugerties, New York. This collective, which would come to be known as Bob Dylan and The Band, recorded more than a hundred songs over the next several months.
When rumors and rare acetates of some of these recordings began surfacing, it created a curiosity strong enough to fuel an entirely new segment of the music business: the bootleg record. In 1969, an album mysteriously titled Great White Wonder began showing up in record shops around the country. The actual recordings, however, remained commercially unavailable until 1975, when Columbia Records released a scant 16 of them on The Basement Tapes album.
Available as a 2CD Set / 6CD Set / 3LPs+2CDs+Book - Pre-Order Now
