In celebration of Record Store Day, which is April 16, Capitol/EMI will be offering limited-edition vinyl titles by The Beach Boys and Syd Barrett at participating independent music retailers in the United States.

The Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations”/”Heroes and Villains” will be available as a double 78 RPM vinyl single set with the songs’ original single release mixes on one disc and alternate versions of both songs on the other disc.

“An Introduction to Syd Barrett,” featuring select solo efforts as well as his work with Pink Floyd, will be released as a 180-gram, double-vinyl LP package with a gatefold jacket and printed inner sleeves. The collection, executive produced by David Gilmour, was released on CD and digitally in November 2010.
