It’s almost the time of the season when vinyl lovers head to their local record shops to pick up limited-edition LPs and other discs from a variety of artists. The organizers of Record Store Day’s “Black Friday” celebration have unveiled the complete list of special releases that will be available during the 2015 installment of the campaign, which takes place on November 27.
Among the many newly announced artists who will be releasing collectible vinyl discs are Paul McCartney, Brian Wilson, The Kinks, David Bowie, Otis Redding and The Zombies.
McCartney’s contribution to the campaign is a 12-inch vinyl single featuring an exclusive 2015 remix of “Say Say Say,” his hit 1983 duet with Michael Jackson. The single’s B-side features an instrumental version of the track.
Wilson’s offering is a two-LP version of his 1988 self-titled solo debut album, which included his memorable tune “Love and Mercy.”
The Kinks will be releasing a pair of long-out-of-print EPs in conjunction with the Black Friday sale — 1965’s Kwyet Kinks and 1966’s Dedicated Kinks. Each disc is pressed on seven-inch vinyl and features four songs. Kwyet Kinks contains “Wait Till the Summer Comes Along,” “Such a Shame,” “A Well Respected Man” and “Don’t You Fret,” while Dedicated Kinks includes “Dedicated Followers of Fashion,” “Till the End of the Day,” “See My Friends” and “Set Me Free.”
Bowie will be reissuing his 1997 album Earthling as a translucent green vinyl LP.
Redding’s Record Store Day release is a seven-inch vinyl disc featuring the late soul legend’s renditions of “Shake” and “Wonderful World” on side A and “I Can’t Turn You Loose” and “My Girl” on Side B.
The Zombies will issue a two-LP set titled The BBC Sessions that features a variety of songs and interview segments the band recorded on British radio from 1964 to 1968. Many of the tracks are previously unreleased.
