Record Store Day Wish List

Record Store Day arrives on April 16. The official website is counting down the days, hours, and minutes, and has already posted the full list of this year's bounty. As usual, the selection of limited-edition releases spans across every known genre of music. Here’s just a sampling of gems from the power pop, alternative, and 1960s sections:

The Animals - Animal Tracks 10-inch four-song EP
David Bowie - “TVC15” seven-inch picture disc
Cheap Trick - Found New Parts 10-inch EP including the exclusive track “Arabesque”
Dave Davies Hits seven-inch, four-song EP
The Electric Prunes - “I’ve Got A Way Of My Own” (Hollies cover)/“World Of Darkness”
Lush - Origami five-album box set; each on colored vinyl
The Monkees - “Saturday’s Child”/“You Just Might Be The One” seven-inch picture disc
The Move - Something Else seven-inch facsimile of rare 1968 recording at The Marquee Club
Graham Nash - This Path Tonight LP with bonus “Our House” and “Teach Your Children” single
Various Artists - Nuggets Hallucinations - Psychedelic Pop Nuggets double-album on purple vinyl
Warren Zevon/The Flamin’ Lips “Werewolves Of London” (Part of RSD’s Side By Side Series.)

The Second Disc website is a great resource for anything related to vinyl, and has been offering RSD-related previews and teasers for a few weeks now. Look for it to continue with its in-depth coverage. The print edition of Illinois Entertainer usually has an RSD feature in its April edition, and be sure to check Facebook for announcements about in-store appearances by local bands. And I’m hoping to post more updates as Record Store Day gets closer.
