Although the off-shoot version of Record Store Day’s annual Black Friday is still more than two months away, no time is being wasted to get the official lineup of 150 exclusive titles for public use and appetite suppression.
For the roster-equivalent measurement of most vinyl releases on November 26, the odd CDs and cassettes include limited-edition albums, EPs or singles from a variety of artists, such as Billy Ellis, Jason Isabel, Aerosmith, Trippy Red, U2, Black, Pumas, John Liz, Lana Del Rey, Fleetwood Mac, Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, Mob Deep, Leonard Cohen, Jerry Garcia Band, Tank and The Bangs, Bill Evans and Blackberry Smoke.
Record Store Day organizers are warning this year that some of the headlines announced today could be dropped due to serious backlogs in vinyl manufacturing plants. Several releases planned for Black Friday are also being pushed back from the lineup so that artists can announce them themselves.
The Black Friday edition of the RSD is the younger cousin of the April Fools April event (which has been split into a growing “RSD drops” event since the epidemic began early last year), where 400 headlines could be jockeys for customers’ attention in independent stores. But the lineups on Black Friday are much shorter than in the spring, even for the Thanksgiving-pre-dawn lineup competition with Macy.
A complete (for now) lineup of titles with a list of participating indie stores can be found here on the RSD website. But we’ve collected some highlights from the roster, including summaries and quantities, where available.
