This year’s Record Store Day is just around the corner — April 19. And as usual, there’s a long list of special-edition and limited vinyl releases being pressed and printed up for the occasion. We’ve already heard new about some of them, like R.E.M.’s complete Unplugged sessions box set, or Oneohtrix Point Never’s Commissions I (though not Neil Young’s vinyl box set — that’s been delayed until fall). And now, the full list of releases is up on the Record Store Day website. Find it here.
Some of the more interesting Record Store Day 2014 releases include a David Bowie 1984 picture disc; a vinyl reissue of Built to Spill’s Ultimate Alternative Wavers; a Circa Survive/Sunny Day Real Estate split 7-inch; a reissue of Sam Cooke’s Ain’t That Good News; a Dinosaur Jr./The Cure split 7-inch; Disclosure’s Apollo; Gram Parsons’ 180 Gram: Alternate Takes from GP and Grievous Angel; Hüsker Dü’s Candy Apple Grey; a Jon Spencer Blues Explosion Def Jam tribute 12-inch; Joy Division’s An Ideal For Living EP; Pissed Jeans’ The Very Best of Sub Pop EP; Otis Redding’s Pain in My Heart; Tame Impala’s Live Versions; and the soundtrack to The Muppet Movie.
Wow, that’s a lot of cool stuff right there.
