It’s that time of year again! Black Friday Record Store Day is just six short weeks away. We’ve been busy working on some great releases, and we’re excited to finally announce this year’s offering:
The Dance Album of Carl Perkins (pictured above) is as good as rock & roll gets, containing most of Perkins’ anthems: “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Movie Magg,” “Gone, Gone, Gone,” “Honey Don’t,” “Everybody’s Trying to Be My Baby,” “Matchbox,” “Boppin’ the Blues,” and “All Mama’s Children.” These tracks provided some of the toughest, rawest rockabilly, powered by Perkins’ dynamic, gutsy guitar and earnest voice. Out of press for decades, it’s now been remastered and pressed on color vinyl exclusively for Black Friday Record Store Day.
The self-titled debut album by American musician and rock and roll pioneer Jerry Lee Lewis, released in 1958 by Sun Record Company. Produced by legends Jack Clement and Sam Phillips, the album features songs written by Lewis, his contemporaries at Sun Records (including Elvis), the traditional “When The Saints Go Marching In”, and Hank Williams’ “Jambalaya”. Out of press in the US for over 25 years, the album is now coming back to vinyl for this limited edition, 180gram color vinyl release, exclusively for Black Friday Record Store Day.
Bass legend Mike Watt and his Secondmen are back with another split 7” release, this time with Italian punk band Chronics. The two bands cover each other’s songs for this intercontinental collaboration. The 7” comes on blood red color vinyl and is limited to 1,500 copies worldwide. While it’s not an official Record Store Day release, it comes out on Black Friday.
