Record Store Day 2014: Preview
By Zoe K.
Jake Bugg Live At Silver Platters
On January 20, 2014 Jake Bugg drew a packed crowd to our SoDo store for a fantastic live performance. If you happened to miss the show, or if you want to relive the experience, now is your chance! Jake Bugg is releasing a live EP of songs performed at Silver Platters on both CD and 12” vinyl.
Mudhoney On Top
This live LP captures a truly unique Mudhoney performance atop the iconic Seattle Space Needle. Only a dozen people witnessed this event, part of Sub Pop Records’ 25th Anniversary celebration, but now the recording will be available as a limited RSD Exclusive Release.
Flaming Lips “7 Skies H3”
It’s okay if you didn’t have $5,000 to buy the digital copy of this 24-hour-long song when it came out in 2011. Maybe you did have the money, but were creeped out by the human skull packaging. The 50 minute edit will be available on clear vinyl for RSD!
Black Angels Clear Lake Forest
This is the follow up to 2013’s Indigo Meadow on 10” clear vinyl, featuring seven newly recorded songs from Austin’s psych-rock outfit, just in time for all your summer picnics.
Grateful Dead Live at Hampton Coliseum
Great news, Deadheads! Here’s a live recording of their 1979 concert in Hampton, VA on two 180g vinyl records in a gatefold sleeve. Unless you were at the show, their first time at the Hampton Coliseum, you’ve probably never heard this one before because this vinyl version is the first time this show has been released in any format.
Velvet Underground Loaded
Loaded is an essential album in any record collection, so if you don’t have it already now’s your chance. This 12” LP is being reissued on pink, white and black splatter vinyl, which just ups the awesome factor. Loaded was their final studio album with Lou Reed, and it includes tracks such as “Sweet Jane” and “Lonesome Cowboy Bill.”
Dream Theater “Illumination Theory”
Have you been waiting for Dream Theater to release a picture disc? Wait no longer, for it is here. This 22-minute-long song is the closing track on their self-titled album released last year. Don’t cut yourself on the broken glass.
Of Montreal Satanic Panic In The Attic
I can’t believe that it’s been ten years since this album was first released. Of Montreal have been quite prolific in the years since then, but this breakthrough album was where it all got started. It’s going to be great to listen to this yellow and blue 2 LP on a portable turntable outside and reminisce about how great things were in 2004, back before we lost our innocence.
