Alice In Chains – Get Born

This special Alice in Chains 45 RPM double 7” single collects four hard-hitting tracks remastered and available on vinyl for the first time. “What the Hell Have I” and “A Little Bitter,” released on the soundtrack to the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Last Action Hero in 1993, were the first to feature new bassist Mike Inez, who’d played with Ozzy Osbourne for five years. “Get Born Again” and “Died,” released on the box set Music Bank in 1999, were the band’s final recordings with original vocalist Layne Staley.

All Time Low – MTV Unplugged

For the first time ever, Avenged Sevenfold's groundbreaking album, Waking The Fallen, is available on a double LP collector's edition picture disc. Extremely limited to a one-time only pressing for Record Store Day.

David Bowie – BOWPROMO

In August 1971, David Bowie's manager, Tony Defries had 500 promo LPs pressed to secure Bowie and fellow Mainman artist Dana Gillespie a record deal. This promo album, featuring seven Bowie songs on one Side A and five by Gillespie on the flip is often referred to as the BOWPROMO white label album. It came in generic white outer and inner sleeves, and had no printed labels so its matrix number (BOWPROMO 1A-1/1B-1) is the only way to safely identify it. This Record Store Day release faithfully replicates the original promo, with Bowie's seven tracks on one side, and adds five exclusive Bowie prints.

David Bowie – Cracked Actor (Live Los Angeles '74)

A previously unreleased live recording from Los Angeles on 5th September, 1974. This was a pivotal gig in the transition between the Diamond Dogs tour and the Philly Dogs tour. Produced by David Bowie and mixed by Tony Visconti at Human Studios, NYC in October/November 2016. 3 LP set with etching on sixth side.

Greg Graffin – Cold As The Clay

When first released in July of 2006, Greg Graffin's Cold As The Clay may have seemed a world apart from his punk rock roots as singer and founding member of Bad Religion. But the classic American music that Graffin pays homage to here, in both carefully chosen covers and in his own songwriting, forms the backbone of Bad Religion's epic tales of the young and the poor, mired by misery and poverty. Cold as the Clay honors the traditional folk music that Graffin grew up listening to, with original rock compositions that drew inspiration from the folk rock of Gram Parsons and Neil Young, as well as traditional American Folk music. The album was produced by Brett Gurewitz and features guest performances by singer Jolie Holland and The Wearkerthans as backing musicians. In celebration of both the 10th anniversary of this release and the 10th Record Store Day, Cold as the Clay will be pressed on LP for the first time, in a limited run of metallica gold vinyl.

Motorhead – Clean Your Clock

Motorhead, Kings of the Road for more than forty years, are immortalized one more time in Clean Your Clock, the superb live album recorded at the Zenith in Munich, Germany during the Winter 2015 Bad Magic Tour. The indomitable cocktail of power, purpose and head-crunching volume that Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee always succeeded in producing is captured superbly by long-time producer Cameron Webb's mix,giving this landmark Motorhead release the warmth, curve and punch which helped the band achieve international acclaim during a career which saw the Grammy-winning icons sell over 15 million albums and play to millions worldwide.
