Record Store Day 2017 is a mere ten days away, and we’re saving up all our pocket money here at RockYouLike.com. Last week we highlighted a few RSD releases we’re particularly looking forward to, and here’s part 2
Elton John – 17.11.70+
Elton has announced that he’ll be releasing an expanded vinyl edition of his live album 17.11.70, originally issued in 1971. The new set includes 6 extra tracks: Indian Sunset, Your Song, Country Comfort, I Need You To Turn To, Border Song, and My Father’s Gun
Also below is a video of Elton talking about his love of record collecting. It’s a joy.
The Beatles – Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever
7″ single in replica of the original sleeve. Instant Fabs collectible, this one will sell out, and will be much sought-after by the cockend scalpers
Lou Reed – Perfect Night: Live In London
Recorded at the 1997 Meltdown festival and available on CD since the following year, this version is a 2LP set, and a great live record
Paul McCartney – Flowers In The Dirt Demos
We’ve covered these previously, here
Prince – Various single reissues
Eye Wish U Heaven, Batdance, Sign O’ The Times, I Could Never Take The Place Of Your Man, Partyman, Little Red Corvette/1999, and Pop Life are all being reissued on 12″ vinyl, and Little Red Corvette/1999 is coming out as a 7″ picture disc, which is the one we like best
Ramones – Ramones singles box
All of Da Brudders’ pre-1980 US singles, with picture sleeves, collected together in a “cigarette-box-style” i.e. flip-top box. WANT
Robert Johnson – The Centennial Collection
Essential. All 42 tracks from 1936 – 37 over 3LPs.
Sex Pistols – God Save Sex Pistols
Slightly different versions of the tracks that eventually comprised Never Mind The Bollocks, with new artwork too.
That’s all for now, third and final part to come shortly. Don’t forget to check out www.recordstoreday.ie for a list of participating stores, and the full list of releases
