Record Store Day has shared the complete list of releases for the event’s new coronavirus-adjusted schedule. The annual celebration of independent record stores across the country will now take place on August 29th, September 26th, and October 24th.
Originally slated for April 18th, the event was forced to postpone as retail outlets across the country were closed indefinitely amid state-mandated quarantines. As the pandemic raged on, organizers originally postponed RSD to June 20th. Eventually, the date was once again changed to a three-tiered fall release schedule.
The new release schedule still features all of the previously-announced releases, but also showcases added debut of projects that wouldn’t have been ready for April. The first run of releases on August 29th will see the issuing of a 45-rpm version of The Black Keys‘ 2019 Let’s Rock; a live David Bowie album featuring a 1974 concert; the re-release of the Hooker n’ Heat collaboration between Canned Heat and John Lee Hooker; Mac DeMarco‘s Here Comes The Cowboy Demos; a re-release of Dr. John‘s breakout 1970 album, Remedies; two collections of b-sides and remixes from Gorillaz, D-Sides and G-Sides; Brittany Howard‘s Live At Sound Emporium; a record of previously-unheard live Thelonious Monk recordings, Palais Des Beaux-Arts 1963; New Riders Of The Purple Sage‘s vintage Field Trip (Live) from August 27th, 1972 in Veneta OR; a box set of John Prine‘s first four albums for Atlantic; and many more.
October 24th will see the release of An Evening With The Allman Brothers Band Set One recorded in 1991; the first release of Neal Casal‘s debut album, Fade Away Diamond Time, on vinyl; a live Grateful Dead record from May 9th, 1977 in Buffalo, NY; a collection of rarities and outtakes from The Rolling Stones, Metamorphosis UK, originally released in 1975; a live recording of The Who‘s legendary 1967 concert at Monterey Pop Festival; Frank Zappa‘s You Can’t Do That Onstage Anymore (Sampler) live smorgasbord; and many more.
