The Doors have been avid supporters of Record Store Day with a wide array of unique releases through the years, which makes them the perfect band to have the first title with a track list hand-picked by independent record store owners. THE DOORS - CURATED BY RECORD STORE DAY will be released on 180-gram vinyl and includes eight total tracks, with “Side A” featuring rare original mono versions of four classic studio tracks and” Side B” showcasing four legendary live performances. The release is mastered by Bruce Botnick, the band’s original engineer, and is limited to 7,500 individually numbered copies. There are two variations of the artwork, each featuring a hand written track list by one of the surviving band members, John Densmore or Robby Krieger. THE DOORS - CURATED BY RECORD STORE DAY will be available on 180-gram vinyl for a suggested list price of $24.98.
In April of 1970, the Grateful Dead played an intimate acoustic show at the Great Highway in San Francisco. The 80 minute, 17 song set saw the band jam through a mix of original songs (“Friend Of The Devil,” “New Speedway Boogie”), covers (“Mama Tried,” “Wake Up Little Susie”), and traditionals (“I Know You Rider”), followed by six solo acoustic songs from Pigpen. Long lost tapes for the show were recently discovered and will be released on Black Friday as the 2-LP set FAMILY DOG AT THE GREAT HIGHWAY, SAN FRANCISCO, CA 4/18/70. Mastered by Jeffrey Norman, the limited edition of 7,500 copies comes on 180-gram vinyl with lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering and also features beautiful new artwork by frequent Dead designer Scott McDougall. FAMILY DOG AT THE GREAT HIGHWAY, SAN FRANCISCO, CA 4/18/70 will be available for a suggested list price of $39.98.
Just months after the 1993 release of their platinum eponymous album (commonly referred to as The Wedding Album), Duran Duran played an intimate acoustic show at the now-defunct Tower Records in Hollywood. Three reworked versions of classic Duran Duran tracks from the one-night-only event (“Come Undone,” “Notorious,” and “Hungry Like The Wolf”) were captured on the NO ORDINARY EP, a limited promotional cassette available in the United States. This rare collector’s item will now be unearthed with a 10” vinyl release on Black Friday. Limited to 5,000 individually numbered copies in North America, the NO ORDINARY EP will be released on 10” white vinyl for a suggested list price of $16.98.
Jethro Tull’s third album BENEFIT saw the band transition from the traditional blues rock found on their previous albums and signaled the further evolution of their sound that would be present on their future album. BENEFIT is set for release on 180-gram vinyl on Black Friday. Featuring the original U.S. track list, the LP will be limited to 3,000 individually numbered copies and will be available for a suggested list price of $24.98.
With their 1992 debut album CORE, Stone Temple Pilots achieved immediate acclaim with a steady stream of hit radio singles and raucous live shows. To this day, tracks such as “Plush,” “Sex Type Thing,” and “Creep” remain mainstays on modern rock radio and have propelled the album to 8x platinum status. CORE will be released on translucent yellow vinyl as a limited edition of 3,000 copies on Black Friday, with a suggested list price of $22.98. This marks the first time the album has been issued on vinyl in the U.S. since its original release.
