In a normal year, Record Store Day would have already come and gone. But because its regular date was in the middle of the coronavirus lockdown, it was moved to not one, not two, but three dates later this year: August 29, September 26, and October 24.
This postponement has allowed record labels to revamp the list of special RSD releases. Part of that new list is now out. Here are some highlights.
- David Bowie live from his 1974 Soul Tour.
- The Cure’s Seventeen Seconds in both a 20th and 40th anniversary edition.
- A new live EP from Brittany Howard
- A box set of John Prine’s first four albums on vinyl.
- Billie Eilish, Live at Third Man Records (new)
- Lou Reed and John Cale’s tribute to Andy Warhol, Songs for Drella (double vinyl)
- Paul McCartney’s debut solo record in a 50th anniversary edition.
- A reissue of The Kinks’ The Kinks Kronikles.
- The soundtrack to a 2004 Iggy Pop concert film called Kiss My Blood.
- Monty Python!
- Soundgarden has re-recorded “Black Hole Son” and “Searching with My Good Eye Closed” with Brandi Carlisle (12-inch)
- Roger Waters reissue of a live concert version of The Wall
- An exclusive live album from Tegan and Sara
- A three-LP Replacements set.
- A vinyl edition of Fleetwood Mac’s The Alternative Rumours.
- A 7-inch of Beck’s “No Distraction”/”Uneventful Days”
More to come.
