there’s a bit of a backlog internationally at vinyl pressing plants – which has impacted on Record Store Day’s event on 23 April. To counter this there will be a follow-up RSD drop, so we’re adding
to last month’s big list with a dozen choice releases which will
now hit your local indie shop on Saturday 18 June.
Miles Davis: Live In Montreal, July 7, 1983
This double vinyl LP features a set Miles and his stellar band played at the Theatre St-Denis during the Festival International De Jazz De Montreal, released for the very first time. Later this year it will appear on CD and digitally, but for now the vinyl is the only way to wrap your ears around it. Including the popular tracks Hopscotch, Jean-Pierre, What It Is and That’s What Happened among others, it comes in a gatefold sleeve.
Dio: Double Dose Of Donington
This picture disc captures Ronnie’s band at the UK’s premier HM festival. Side A features Stand Up And Shout from 1983, while side B is Rock And Roll Children from four years later.
3Heartbreakers: The LAMF Demo Sessions
What we have here is four demo sessions from Johnny Thunders and his band recorded in 1976 and 1977 compiled onto one LP pressed on transparent magenta vinyl with a 12in poster of the LAMF cover photo and an inner bag sporting an interview with guitarist Walter Lure.
