Legacy Recordings has announced the label's lineup of vinyl releases created especially for Record Store Day's Black Friday 2016, celebrated this year at the nation's independent record stores on Friday, November 25, 2016.
Connoisseurs of classic sounds delivered old school via these two highly collectible releases:
Bob Dylan - The Real Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert - Double LP 12" Vinyl (Columbia Legacy)
Bob Dylan's performance at the Royal Albert Hall from May 26, 1966 (two days after the artist's 25 birthday) is being released as a 2LP album entitled The Real Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert. For decades, Dylan's performance in Manchester was incorrectly labeled "The Royal Albert Hall Concert." Now, for the first time, the REAL Royal Albert Hall concert--originally recorded for a live album by CBS Records--is finally being released, mixed by Grammy-winning engineer Chris Shaw. (This show is also included in the monumental Columbia/Legacy Bob Dylan - 1966 Live Recordings box set.)
Jimi Hendrix - Morning Symphony Ideas - 10" Vinyl LP
Morning Symphony Ideas is an official 'bootleg' which places its focus on Jimi's songwriting and his unique approach toward developing new material in the recording studio. This collection presents Jimi's funk forays with Billy Cox and Buddy Miles, three shining examples of Jimi's work in progress from late 1969. "Jungle" was recorded at the Record Plant on November 14, 1969. Side Two features a September 1969 session with Hendrix again joined by Miles yielding a vigorous then-new interpretation of "Room Full Of Mirrors," a song Hendrix had attempted previously going as far back as August 1968 sessions at Electric Ladyland. During the same December 1969 Record Plant session which produced "Message To Love" and "Earth Blues," Jimi put forward the funky groove which fans and bootleggers alike have come to know as "Strato Strut," included as the third cut on Morning Symphony Ideas. This compilation was produced by Janie Hendrix, Eddie Kramer, & John McDermott for Experience Hendrix, L.L.C.
Now in its ninth year, Record Store Day is an annual day-long celebration of record store culture held on the third Saturday in April. RSD has named Metallica as Record Store Day Ambassadors 2016.
