Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones rarities for Record Store Day's Black Friday
Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones are among the acts releasing exclusive titles for this year's Black Friday event held by the organisers of Record Store Day.
Black Friday takes place on November 29, 2013. There will be around 100 releases, ranging from classic albums reissued on vinyl, rarities and exclusives.
The full list of titles released can be found here.
Here are some of the highlights:
Bob Dylan, Side Tracks
A limited-edition triple-LP set contains tracks that will appear for the first time on the two-CD set Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One. The album compiles non-album singles, soundtrack songs and other recordings that never made it onto a studio album.
Zabriskie Point Soundtrack
Long out of print, this soundtrack to Michelangelo Antonioni's 1970 film features music by Pink Floyd, the Grateful Dead. Reissued here as a two-album set, it also includes four tracks by Pink Floyd and Jerry Garcia that did not make it on the original edition.
Rolling Stones, Got Live If You Want It
The third and final Rolling Stones 7" EP release from ABKCO exclusively for indie record stores. The Rolling Stones EP was released for Black Friday 2012, Five By Five was released for Record Store Day 2013.) This is the first release in the original 7" format since June 1965 and it includes tracks not found on the US album of the same name. Recorded on the Rolling Stones' 5th British Tour at dates in London, Liverpool and Manchester in early March 1965.
The Doors, Curated by Record Store Day
This album was compiled from tracks suggested by record store owners and the individual tracks were selected by Bruce Botnick and includes rare mono mixes and live tracks. This Doors' album is completely unique and was made especially by the band for record stores only. Two variations of the artwork each feature a hand written track list by one of the surviving band members, John Densmore or Robby Krieger.
Nirvana, In Utero 2013 mix
With the approval of Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic, original album producer Steve Albini remixed and remastered the album at Abbey Road Studios this year, and that mix is being issued on clear vinyl, at 45 RPM, cut to copper plates for this special indie record store exclusive, for Record Store Day's Black Friday event.
Unfortunately, Black Friday is restricted to American and Canadian record shops only.
