Taiwanese pressings of rock records are sought after less for fidelity than for the sheer oddity of their presentation.
Run Out Groove is releasing ‘The Baby Huey Story: The Living Legend’ 2-LP expanded edition (limited to only 3,350 copies) and The Beau Brummels ‘Bradley’s Barn’ 2-LP expanded edition (limited to only 3000 copies) for Record Store Day.
Only 50 copies of the 1994 Prince/Warner Brothers limited-edition release variant were pressed.
Record Stored Day announces a whole bunch of heavy-hitting releases. And a full list of titles and their accompanying artwork can be found on the RSD website.
Music reviews: Everything from Tiddlywinks to Traffic is covered.
The following are upcoming records shows and events, including WKRN Music Mash in Bridgeport, CT on March 3 and the Chicagoland Record Collectors Show in Hillside, IL on March 18.
If you think about it, the 8-Track tape is the ultimate punk rock art form. It had no respect for pretension, no time for procrastination, and it didn’t give a damn for concept or continuity.
Vinyl record fans voted to make the next limited and numbered Run Out Groove title, ‘Down By The Old Mainstream’ by Golden Smog available for pre-order by March 8.
The “Lover Man” 7-inch single is drawn from Jimi Hendrix’s upcoming album ‘Both Sides of the Sky’ (out March 9), and is backed by a live version of “Foxey Lady,” recorded in Bussum, Holland in November 1967. Both tracks are previously unreleased.
UMC/Island/Interscope are proud to announce the release of 3 new vinyl reissues from Irish rock giants, U2: ‘Pop’ (1997), ‘Wide Awake In America’ (1985) and ‘All That You Can’t Leave Behind’ (2000).
