Record Store Day Highlights for June 12th!

Record Store Day returns for the first of several 2021 events this Saturday June 12th! We’ve asked Jim Bland, owner of Plan 9 Music and Cal Glatfelder Jr., owner of Sidetracks Music to highlight some of the Record Store Day releases they are most excited about. Check them out below as well as all of the info you will need to head out and hit up your favorite independent record stores this Saturday at RSD Drop #1! 

Plan 9 Music
www.plan9music.com / 3017 W Cary St. (Richmond) & 339 Hillsdale Dr. (Charlottesville) / Hours: 9am-7pm limited indoor capacity

Grateful Dead – Olympia Theatre, Paris, France 5/3/72

The complete OLYMPIA THEATRE, PARIS, FRANCE 5/3/72 show from the Grateful Dead’s legendary Europe ‘72 Tour is available as a 6-LP, 180-Gram, Limited Edition of 10,000. Featuring an “Other One” that comes out of Truckin’ and weaves in and out of other thematic and deep-space jams, as well as a side trip to Me And Bobby McGee, this is some of the Grateful Dead’s best, most inspired improvisation. The performance also includes five songs sung by Pigpen on what would be his final tour, including a massive Good Lovin’ which allows Pigpen to do what he does best: hold the audience in the palm of his hand while they hang on his every word.

Conor Oberst – Ruminations

A remastered version of Conor Oberst’s legendary album on double black vinyl, with five previously released bonus tracks, and an etched Side Four.

Elton John – Regimental Sgt. Zippo

Recorded at Dick James Studios in Central London between late 1967 and Spring 1968, Regimental Sgt. Zippo was all set to introduce Elton John to the world before it was ultimately shelved. The world would have to wait a little longer for Elton’s debut, coming in the form of 1969’s Empty Sky, and Zippo would be lost in the archives. Until now. Six of the 12 songs were released on Jewel Box, but five are here in their finished versions for the first time and a debut release for “You’ll Be Sorry To See Me Go”.

Sidetracks Music
www.sidetracksmusic.net / 310 2nd St. SE (Charlottesville) / Hours: 9am-4pm, limited indoor capacity (live music starting at 12pm from Eli Cook / Pale Blue Dot / Studebaker Huck / Breakers / BroX)

Prince – The Truth

The Truth is widely regarded as one of Prince’s most underappreciated hidden gems. Originally released as an accompaniment to the 1998 triple album Crystal Ball, which marked the first time that Prince released an album totally independently, The Truth was also the first Prince album to be labeled “acoustic,” though it does contain electronic instruments and elements, and it gave listeners an unprecedented chance to hear his songwriting and voice in a stripped-down presentation. This release as part of RSD Drops marks the first time The Truth is available on vinyl, with gorgeous, foil-embossed artwork designed by Prince’s long-time art director Steve Parke.

Col. Bruce Hampton – Arkansas

A limited edition, remastered 180g pressing of the 1987 album that garnered **** ½ from All Music Guide. “This is a country record, we’re just not sure what country.” – Col. Bruce Produced by Col. Bruce Hampton & Ricky Keller
Special Guests: Paul Barrere, Tinsley Ellis, T Lavitz, Sonny Emory, Oteil Burbridge, Jimmy Herring, Rev. Jeff Mosier, Jeff Sipe and more.

Danny Barnes – Dirt on the Angel

The first time on vinyl for the 2003 release, on a limited edition, remastered 180g pressing for RSD Drops #1. Special Guests: Chuck Leavell, Bill Frisell, Carlton Jackson, Dirk Powell.  “Barnes is to the banjo what Jimi Hendrix was to the guitar…taking picking to new levels of sound and fury.” -Hittin’ the Note

Samantha Crain on World Cafe

Monday June 7th at 6pm

Samantha Crain was in a series of car accidents that initially left her without the use of her hands. She couldn’t even pick up her guitar. But she overcame that adversity to release a new album and EP. Crain joins host Stephen Kallao to talk about how her experience led to some of the best work she’s ever done, on the next World Cafe.
