As you may know, Record Store Day's Black Friday (11/29) edition will be back this year aiming to get a piece of the post Thanksgiving Day pie (pumpkin, most likely). The RSD folks have just released the full slate of Black Friday exclusives and they include:

Steve Albini's 2013 mix of Nirvana's In Utero on clear 45 RPM vinyl.

Josh Tillman - The History of Caves: The man better known as Father John Misty's instrumental score to his wife Emma's short film.

Stiff Records' Ten Big Stiffs 7" box set (classic singles w/ original sleeves by Tracey Ullman, Tenpole Tudor, Wreckless Eric and more).

Cheap Trick - The Classic Albums 1977-79, which packages their first five LPs in one vinyl box.

John Denver & The Muppets - Christmas Together reissued as a vinyl picture disc.

Low and Shearwater each contribute an unexpected cover ("Stay" by Rihanna and "Novacane" by Frank Ocean, respectively) on 12" vinyl.

One place you'll hopefully be able to find most of these is at Rough Trade New York which is set to open the Monday before Thanksgiving (11/25). You can see the full list of RSD Black Friday 2013 releases below and more details are at RSD's site.

45 RPM?

Posted by Anonymous | October 22, 2013 5:49 PM

@5:49,

Yeah, they do that sometimes (like the new Weeekend album)... it doesn't say but I'm guessing it's double vinyl. Higher fidelity at 45rpm.

money grab for morons

Yeah, 45 is preferred speed for audiophile vinyl. But colored or clear vinyl is always lesser quality than black so I'm kind of surprised this is Albini approved. $$$ grab, agreed.

I love how people line up for hours thinking they are getting some Limited Edition record - only to find them flooded on ebay for half of what they originally cost with no takers

Shut up you idiots.

You shut up 11:07.

Actually, many audio nerds swear that clear vinyl beats all. My stereo isn't nearly expensive enough for me to hear a real difference though.

In any form of collecting there are always douche bag resellers who try to make a quick piece by treating collectors like schmucks and upping the cover price on ebay. Kinda ruins it for those that really want to get the item...๏ปฟ
