RECORD STORE DAY LIST PART 2

LP RELEASES:

BEN'S PICK:
Air released some incredible singles during the mid to late 90's before their classic album Moon Safari was released in 1998. Le Soleil Est Pres De Moi was their third single and this RSD release also includes remixes by l:cube & DJ Gilb'R AKA Chateau flight as well as Dan The Automator.
$14.99

MARTY'S PICK:
Alternate takes and demos give a clearer picture of Alex Chilton's mental state while he struggled to find himself (and stability) resulting in one of the most beautiful and haunting albums.
$41.99

RON'S PICK:
ANGIE'S PICK:
Influenced by his role model, John Lee Hooker, Burnside combined powerfully expressive vocals and stripped down guitar playing. Thanks to Fat Possum efforts to record North Mississippi blues musicians, the likes of T-Model Ford, Junior Kimbrough and Burnside made recordings starting with the labels inception in 1991. Now, we get a glimpse into early Burnside with these recordings from 1982.
$18.99

RON'S PICK:
RYAN'S PICK:
George Carlin – Jammin’ in New York: new pressing of HBO concert film, with the master of language in front of a hometown audience. Wonder what George would have to say in these interesting times, no?
$17.99

MARTY'S PICK:
The classic sound of 70's Johnny Cash singing about dinosaurs, hunting bears, and having a good time with our friends. A charming essential for any fan of the Man in Black.
$19.99

MICHAEL'S PICK:
If Colleen’s 2015 release Captive of None fascinated you with its unique blend of pizzicato flourishes and textural electronics, then it’s time to check out her earlier catalog. Golden Morning Breaks delivers a cinematic dreamy haze.
$20.99

EVAN'S PICK:
Early brilliance from producer Adrian Sherwood and the On-Sound crew. Rootsy dub instrumentals shot into deep space. This one hasn't been pressed on vinyl since the early 80s and is nearly impossible to find.

LUKE'S PICK:
Creation Rebel - Starship Africa Stellar heavy dub from the early 80's with tons of super cool effects and delay. Easily one of their best recordings.
$18.99

Double LP
$30.99

Double picture disc
$30.99

EVAN'S PICK:
Composed by Armenian mystic/philosopher/musician GI Gurdjieff and recorded by Russian pianist Thomas de Hartmann in the 1950s, these incredible recordings represent the earliest crystallization of the New Age musical movement. The music here is meditative, mindful, and of another era of which we have little documentation. Keith Jarrett memorably translated some of these pieces for his box set release on ECM, but this is the only recording of de Hartmann performing them himself. Out of print since the 80s, now with a bonus LP of unreleased work. Worth every penny!
5 LP boxset
$89.99

RON'S PICK:
ANGIE'S PICK:
Stunning, never before released recording of the trio of Evans, Eddie Gomez and Jack DeJohnette, recorded in 1968.
$24.99

2LPs + 10" + book
$48.99

MICHAEL'S PICK:
Yuya Uchida’s debut under the FTB moniker features some fantastic heavy, doomy, psych covers.

LUKE'S PICK:
The Black Sabbath of Japan! Heavy stoner psych rock at it's best.
$28.99

ANGIE'S PICK:
Great songwriter Jason Isbell covering the legendary likes of John Prine, Bruce Springsteen and the Rolling Stones.
$16.99

RON'S PICK:
It’s a story old as the hills. Man sells soul to underworld. Man achieves fluidity on guitar. Man shot dead by scorned paramour. Cliches are not without basis.
$54.99

EVAN'S PICK:
A deeply compiled set of tunes from a relatively unsung hero of the British DIY movement which continues to influence contemporary rock. Jowe Head was a founding member of both the Swell Maps and the Television Personalities. This set collects Head versions of tunes by both bands, and cuts from his illustrious 80s solo career.
$34.99

LUKE'S PICK:
. I have no idea what this will sound like but it's safe to say it's going to be pretty strange.
$24.99

BEN'S PICK:
Heavy reverb, lots of delay, dreadlocks, and the scent of recently smoked herbs lingering. Mad Professor created new dub mixes of this Jah9 album.
$19.99

MATT'S PICK:
Mysterious psych/drone folk-rock from early 70's New York. A true rarity, now remastered, with original artwork.

MICHAEL'S PICK:
A mysterious, private press experimental psych record on a micro budget. Madrigal offers a dizzying mix of folk harmonies, Red Krayola-style freak-outs, and tribal jams.
$28.99

MARTY'S PICK:
Often overlooked, solid debut. Quirky 90's folk/pop at its best.
$23.99

MICHAEL'S PICK:
Composed for Robert Wise’s sci-fi space virus film of the same name, The Andromeda Strain both compliments and induces the anxiety on screen. Expect synth pulses, blasts of musique concrète, and future melodies.

LUKE'S PICK:
. Gil Melle got his start in the Jazz world and was actually the first musician Rudy Van Gelder recorded for Blue Note. By the late 60's he had moved into exploring electronics and shifted into the world of Soundtracks where he blended electronics with scored music. Highly recommended.
$39.99

MICHAEL'S PICK:
Influenced by various fringe-disco genres, Maiovvi puts a dark, groovy twist on Turkish standards for this soundtrack. DVD included.
$29.99

EVAN'S PICK:
Released on a tiny label in 1971, 'Key' is a stunning early entry in the catalog of Meredith Monk, a pioneer in the avant-garde realm of voice-as-instrument. On these live recordings, Monk pairs her acrobatic, often inhuman sounding vocals with tantric, Riley-esque organ playing. Not for the weak, this.
$19.99

MATT'S PICK:
Classic Monk tunes with a killer lineup, on LP for the first time.
$49.99

RON'S PICK:
RYAN'S PICK:
Wes Montgomery with the Wynton Kelly Trio – Smokin’ in Seattle: Unearthed live date from the same outfit responsible for “Smokin’ at the Half Note,” for my money the greatest record Wes ever released. No less than Miles Davis leaned heavily on the crack Chambers-Kelly-Cobb outfit, so the pedigree was established well before tape rolled.

BEN'S PICK:
One of the greatest jazz guitarists of all time, Wes Montgomery, along with Wynton Kelly on keys, Jimmy Cobb on drums, and Ron McClure on bass. This set truly smokes.
$24.99

MARTY'S PICK:
Randy Newman- Lonely At The Top- His first 5 studio albums, which also happen to be his best. Many of these songs became hits for other artists, but these wonderfully crafted songs sound best with Newman's unique approach.
$98.99

MARTY'S PICK:
Harry Nilsson- Nilsson Schmilsson- Nilsson's most successful album which still sounds refreshing and inventive after 46 years. For the first time on colored vinyl. A nice introduction for fans new to Nilsson and a must for any completist.
$19.99

BEN'S PICK:
It's the 20th anniversary of his death and this release also features Busta Rhymes, Redman and Method Man, Missy Elliott, Ice Cube, and Snoop Dogg. This one has been out of print since the early 2000's.
$30.99

BEN'S PICK:
The legendary bassist leads a 22 piece band which includes Toots Thielemans. Another huge talent who died way too early.
$59.99

EVAN'S PICK:
The sole 12" EP from New Zealand's answer to Joy Division, originally released in 1982. Five taut, lethal dark new wave cuts with a garage sensibility, from players who are still active in the NZ underground.
$15.99

MATT'S PICK:
It might take you a little time and a lot of cash to get your hands on an original copy of this cosmic journey on wax. Primo early-70's Sun Ra!

LUKE'S PICK:
Prime 70's Sun Ra!!! The band is in full effect and travels way out past Saturn's rings.
$23.99

ANGIE'S PICK:
This one is cool on a number of levels. It showcases the soviet tradition of “bone records,” 1950s bootleg pressings of western/banned recordings made on discarded medical x-rays. And it resurrects the first recordings of the great cellist Rostropovich performing his mentor Shostakovich’s Cello Concert #2. After Rostropovich’s exile from the USSR his recordings were destroyed with this one thankfully being saved by a crafty archivist who hid/mislabeled this recording; it is now available on vinyl for the first time.

MATT'S PICK:
The packaging alone is worth it for this one, folks...a historic recording, performed by the legendary cellist for whom it was written. Pressed on "x-ray film" vinyl.
$23.99

MARTY'S PICK:
Stripped away of the bullshit and that stupid wig, 6 of Sia's songs presented with just her voice and piano accompaniment. This will probably be poo-pooed by most record store enthusiasts, but these haunting performances are worth trying to get your hands on.
$16.99

RYAN'S PICK:
Springsteen at his Springsteeniest. Drum solos? Long spoken word passages? B-movie plots and car imagery? It’s all there and whether you’re into or not, the commitment cannot be denied. On the short list of greatest concert records EVAH.
$69.99

Die cut picture disc
$18.99

LUKE'S PICK:
One of his best albums! Super heavy.
$24.99

Pot-scented vinyl
$31.99

ANGIE'S PICK:
While he is known for his poetic songwriting and ultimately tragic life, the live recordings of Townes capture his charm and wit, reminding us of the other facets of this American treasure.
$18.99

LUKE'S PICK:
About $2,000 less than an original copy, this Brazilian album is filled with top notch studio production and is a pure joy to experience.
$21.99



LP COMPILATIONS AND SOUNDTRACKS:

EVAN'S PICK:
Released on CD in 2005, this compilation remains one of the most fascinating documents put together by the Sublime Frequencies crew. All these tracks come from cassette-only releases sourced from 1970s Burma. Guitar pop and balladry with blazing leads, haunting lyricism, and a stripped down sound you simply cannot find in the 21st century. Several tracks here will stay in your mind forever.
$29.99

RON'S PICK:
MARTY'S PICK:
Nuggets: Come To The Sunshine- Nuggets comps always sound meticulously curated and this one is no exception. A great selection of some obscurities from the softer side of psych.
$30.99

MICHAEL'S PICK:
A trippy collage of contemporary surf jangles and cosmic flutters featuring Bitchin Bajas, Sir Richard Bishop, and White Fence among other greats.
$29.99

EVAN'S PICK:
Vinyl version of a CD compilation released last year. The title track was originally released as a send-up of the female-dominant postpunk released by the UK label Cherry Red in the early 80s. Eventually, this mockery turned into honor, as a great deal of this music ended up influencing underground and indie music over the past few decades. This is a vital comp to have on wax, as it collects a ton of rare 45-only tracks that were hard to find even a few years after their release. All female post-punk, reggae/dub, cow-punk, mod revival, proto-twee, and new wave.
$26.99

Of Lightning Bolt
$19.99

MATT'S PICK:
Next best thing to a 3rd studio album from Scotland's ace producer.
$23.99

MARTY'S PICK:
Wisconsin Vinyl Collective- Focusing on the folk and Americana side of this great state, a well-informed collection of music from some of Wisconsin's finest established and emerging acts.
$17.99
