Yesterday, I picked up Paul McCartney’s Black Friday single—a limited edition picture disk with two new songs, “Home Tonight" and “In A Hurry.” Pretty cool. Of course, when you’re Paul McCartney, “limited edition” means 12,000 were pressed.

Working today, I played The Sneetches’ Brian Wilson-esque “Slow,” followed by The Sundays’ mellow “Blind.” They’re both lovely records, but to get the blood moving after that, it was time for some classic punk by the Sex Pistols on a purposefully ugly picture disc from Record Store Day a few years ago.

Playing some tuneage while finishing up work before a much-needed three-day weekend. This is the Record Store Day limited edition of The Cure’ Greatest Hits from a few years ago (1/3250 worldwide).

NEW RELEASE
RSD 2019  (RSD First release, Ltd. 1500 Copies)

Various ‎– House Of Wax (Music From The Motion Picture)

3 sides of mostly mall metal, with some Stooges and Joy Division thrown in for a bit a credibility.  Fans of that polished screamo metal will love this, side 4 is etched for your pleasure.  BTW, RSD First means that this will get a wider release, sometime in the near future.  If you missed out on RSD, another variant should be coming in the next months.

NEW RELEASE

RSD 2019 Exclusive (Ltd. 1500 Copies)

Various ‎– Coneheads (Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Peak RHCP was probably reached around this time. After the mainstream success of “Blood Sugar Sex Magik”,  99.9 The Buzz played “Soul To Squeeze” to death, akin to Led Zeppelin and classic rock radio.  “Alternative” radio stations started popping up and used the same formula to shove Pearl Jam, Sublime and Nirvana down our throats.  FM radio is where music goes to die; the next step is a car or cola ad.  
Click the link below, listen to the original track that Digable Planets dropped for this.  That’s the gold, for me.  I like the Chilis fine too, I just don’t like the cycle of mass consumption being applied to art is all.  Ironic, considering I collect records…

NEW RELEASE
RSD 2019 Exclusive (Ltd. 8000 Copies)


Various ‎– Lost In Translation (Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Anybody else pick this up?  Warner Bros. went all-in with their soundtrack offerings this year (South Park!). My guess is that many of these titles are likely still available at your local independent record shop, so I’ll try and post as many as I can today. Music links included in the comments, so you can have a listen before deciding if you wanna pick it up on wax.

Have A Nice Day

Yes – Yes (1969)
RSD 2019 Reissue (6500)

Coffee, Smoke, RSD Comedown
I really do love Record Store Day, complaints notwithstanding.  It boils down to a celebration of music that supports art and brings people together.  Gonna spend the day setting up new studio equipment while I spin the RSD pile I didn’t get to. Prior to just now, I’d never heard this debut album from Yes.  No rock radio hits but just as Yes as “Fragile” or any of the others.  Warner did a good job with this one, 6500 copies available. Remastered by Kevin Gray, Stoughton tip-on gatefold and everything.  
Happy Monday, Vinyl Junkies
Make music happen
