Record Store Day Unveils List of Black Friday Exclusives with Queens of the Stone Age, Elvis Costello and the Roots, Red Hot Chili Peppers
Published Oct 22, 2013In recent weeks, we've being hearing about the heap of exclusive releases that will arrive on November 29 via Record Store Day's Back to Black Friday event. Now, Record Store Day has issued a master list of these special releases.
The list includes a number of releases we've already heard about, like Bob Dylan's Side Tracks compilation, Nirvana's 2013 mix of In Utero, Josh Tillman's film soundtrack, Shearwater's split single with Low, a Puscifer live album, and the Flaming Lips Ender's Game EP.
Some other notable releases include a remix CD from Elvis Costello and the Roots, a live 7-inch from Band of Horses, a special Doors compilation curated by record store owners, an archival live acoustic 10-inch from Duran Duran, Foals' CCTV Sessions, an Uncle Tupelo 7-inch, a Lady Gaga picture disc, Metallica's Through the Never soundtrack in a special edition, a Nas reissue, Queens of the Stone Age's …Like Clockwork in a special vinyl edition, a compilation of Red Hot Chili Peppers 7-single series, a Rush picture disc, and much more.
In addition to these exclusives, there are a number of records that will initially be available from participating RSD stores before a more widespread release follows. This includes Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' live album, Brendan Benson's new LP, Fall Out Boy's Ryan Adams-produced 7-inch, Jack Johnson's Live at Third Man and more.
See the full list here.
Since we don't typically make a big deal of Black Friday here in Canada, we're not entirely sure whether all of our independent record stores will be carrying these releases. Record Store Day's website for the event notes, "U.S. and Canadian record stores will be participating by stocking special releases (although some of the releases may be different in the U.S. and Canada)."
