Paul Butterfield Blues Band, The Original Lost Elektra Sessions Deluxe (Run Out Groove)
Paul Butterfield met aspiring blues guitarist Elvin Bishop in the early 1960s and with bassist Jerome Arnold and drummer Sam Lay (both from Howlin Wolf's touring band), the new group secured a highly successful club engagement at Big John's Folk Club in Chicago, bringing them to the attention of producer Paul A. Rothchild. During their engagement, Butterfield met and occasionally sat in with guitarist Mike Bloomfield. Rothchild was impressed with the chemistry between the two and having persuaded Paul to bring Bloomfield into the band, eventually signed them to Elektra Records in 1964. This Deluxe 3LP expanded edition of The Paul Butterfield Band's lost sessions from the 1964-1966 era features the classic line-up working through blues classics. It is the first time this killer collection is available on vinyl and is expanded to include unreleased demo and alternate tracks recently found in the Warner Vaults. Limited to 5,000 copies.
Chicago, Chicago At Carnegie Hall: April 9, 1971
Chicago performed eight epic shows over the week of April 5-10, 1971 at Carnegie Hall in NYC (including two shows on two of those days). The entire run of shows was mixed by Chicago founding member/trumpeter Lee Loughnane, along with engineer Tim Jessup and issued as the 16 CD set Chicago At Carnegie Hall Complete. This RSD Exclusive live show breakout was mastered by Adam Ayan at Gateway Mastering. Limited to 6,000 copies.
The Cure, Pornography
Limited edition picture disc of the UK band's legendary fourth album, celebrating its 40th anniversary. Featuring the trio of singer/guitarist Robert Smith, drummer Lol Tolhurst and bassist Simon Gallup, this 1982 classic features "100 Years," "A Short Term Effect," and the single "The Hanging Garden." Pornography is arguably the peak of The Cure's early, darker sound, before they switched to a more pop orientated direction. The album had a huge influence on future dark wave and gothic rockers. Despite the album's dark themes it was their most popular release to date, breaching the UK Top 10. Limited to 10,000 copies.
Devo, Oh No! It's Devo
The album celebrates its 40th anniversary with a new picture disc edition limited to 4,000 copies.
The Doors, L.A. Woman Sessions
A breakout standalone 4LP set limited to 19,500 copies, curated by Bruce Botnick, made up of over two-and-one-half hours of outtakes from the bonus content from the 50th anniversary set.
A six track EP from the side project of Bernard Sumner of New Order and Johnny Marr of The Smiths. Includes remixes of the singles "Getting Away With It" and "Disappointed" featuring Neil Tennant of Pet Shop Boys, together with two further singles, "Get The Message" and "Feel The Beat", from the band's first, eponymous album and two additional album track remixes, "Idiot Country (Two)" and "Gangster". All this music from the first four years of the band's career. Limited to 2,000 copies.
The Everly Brothers, Hey Doll Baby (Warner Records)
2021 marked the 65th anniversary of the first single from The Everly Brothers ("Keep A Lovin' Me", 1956). This new compilation is curated by Tom Petty's daughter Adria Petty in conjunction with Don Everly and Phil Everly's widow, with the objective of reminding the world of the greatness of the Everly Brothers, and introducing them to a new, younger audience. While it does include some hits (e.g.: "Cathy's Clown" - their biggest selling single), this isn't a Greatest Hits collection, and it highlights many of the lesser-known songs that are as good as the well-known hits. With seventeen tracks, and a fresh, contemporary approach to the cover art, this baby blue vinyl release for Record Store Day seeks to garner a new assessment of the band by musicians, critics and media, and appeal to a broader audience, some of them who may never have heard of the Everly Brothers. Mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and limited to 4,500 copies.

Vinyl debut of 2014 live album Les Enfants Sauvages limited to 3,500 copies.

Limited to 9,000 copies.
Christy Moore, Ride On
140-gram white vinyl pressing of 1984 Irish folk album limited to 4,000 copies.
Willie Nelson, Live at the Texas Opry House 1974
Recorded over the course of two nights in 1974, just a few months after Phases and Stages was released, these early concerts by the newly-minted Willie Nelson Family Band were meant to capture the sound and feel of the burgeoning Outlaw Country scene in Austin, TX. Produced by Jerry Wexler, the album was scrapped at the time and was only released on CD in 1992 and in this complete form in 2006 on The Complete Atlantic Sessions. The set captures a rising star twelve years in the making, whose fame and fortune lurked just around the corner. This Record Store Day release limited to 8,500 copies marks its first time on vinyl.
Stevie Nicks, Bella Donna: Deluxe Edition

Mike Oldfield, Tubular Bells II
This 180-gram blue marble vinyl LP of Mike Oldfield's classic sequel is limited to 8,384 copies.
The Proclaimers, Sunshine on Leith (Parlophone)
Scotland's The Proclaimers were originally formed in 1983 by twin brothers Charlie and Craig Reid. Their folk-rock sound made an instant impact with their 1987 debut, This Is The Story. Wasting no time, their follow-up, Sunshine On Leith, was released in 1988. Kicking off with the hit single "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)," not only would the album become a huge worldwide success, it would also inspire a stage musical of the same name. This expanded 2LP version includes a vinyl side of rarities, including non-album tracks from their King Of The Road EP, plus another side of sessions recorded for the BBC. "(I'm Gonna) Burn Your Playhouse" from their 1989 Glastonbury performance acts as a fitting finale to this marbled black, white and green vinyl set limited to 2,000 copies.
Ramones, The Sire Albums 1981-1989
A seven LP box set of albums (Pleasant Dreams, Subterranean Jungle, Too Tough To Die, Animal Boy, Halfway To Sanity, Brain Drain) and a neon pink splatter vinyl LP of rarities, all pressed on vinyl for the first time since their original release. Presented in a numbered slipcase with a sticker sheet included. Limited to 10,000 copies.

One of the earliest soundboard recordings of the band, featuring the original lineup of Paul, Bob, Tommy and Chris as captured by Twin/Tone's mobile unit on January 23, 1981, at the 7th St Entry in Minneapolis, MN. The concert took place as the band was in the midst of working on their debut album Sorry Ma, Forgot to Take Out the Trash and the show's twenty-seven song setlist is packed with evolving versions of classic songs that would appear on that album, other early numbers that were never released plus choice covers of The Heartbreakers' "I Wanna Be Loved", Slade's "My Town", The Kinks' "All Day And All of the Night", and Dave Edmunds' "Trouble Boys", among others. Limited to 10,000 copies, this 2LP set is pressed on 140-gram vinyl for Record Store Day 2022. First time on vinyl.
Speed, Glue & Shinki, Eve
This Japanese psych-rock classic from 1971 returns to vinyl (complete with OBI strip) in its 2017 remaster. Limited to 3,500 copies.
Stiff Little Fingers, BBC Live in Concert (Parlophone)
Stiff Little Fingers' BBC Live In Concert features two high energy performances from these very influential Northern Irish punk rockers, recorded for the BBC. Fronted by singer/guitarist Jake Burns, the first LP of this 2LP set kicks off with "Roots, Radicals, Rockers & Reggae" from their Go For It album, recorded at London's Paris Theatre in 1981, a venue used for many classic BBC Live In Concerts. The second LP features an equally raucous show captured at Norwich's University of East Anglia in the UK in front of a highly appreciative crowd. Recorded a year after the Paris Theatre show, the 1982 set starts with "Tin Soldiers" and ends with "Gotta Getaway." Limited to 4,500 copies.
Peter Tosh, Complete Captured Live
Released on 2 CDs in 2002, Complete Captured Live is reissued on colored marble vinyl and limited to 11,900 copies.
I may be alone in this, but the one that really surprises me is the Speed, Glue and Shinki album. The majority of Japanese rock reissues in the West have been bootlegs, even on Record Store Day. Some officially licensed reissues have finally been showing up recently, but I think this is the first one actually released by the label that owns it. I hope this is part of a trend and that WMG gets around to Flower Travellin' Band's "Satori."
Its now 16 years since America brought out an album of new material. Archives, Live, Covers, we've had these by the cartload over that period. Isn't it time for an album of new stuff?
