Beatles, Neil Young, Metallica Part of Record Store Day "Black Friday" Vinyl Release Lineup

RecordStoreDay.comThe full lineup of releases for Record Store Day’s 2014 “Black Friday” event has been announced, and lovers of vinyl and classic rock will have quite a list from which to choose.  Among the newly-revealed discs that will be available are releases from The Beatles, Neil Young, Genesis, The Grateful Dead, Metallica, and The Ramones.

The Beatles’ offering will be a replica of their 1964 U.K. EP Long Tall Sally, a seven-inch disc with mono sound featuring the Little Richard-penned title track and three other tunes.

Young will issue a limited-edition box set called Official Release Series Discs 5-8 that gathers together 180-gram vinyl versions of four of his early albums — 1973’s Time Fades Away, 1974’s On the Beach, and 1975’s Tonight’s the Night and Zuma.  The collection originally had been slated for release as part of last April’s Record Store Day initiative, but was postponed.

Genesis will release a vinyl version of their 1969 debut album, From Genesis to Revelation, which hasn’t been available in the format since 1974.

The Grateful Dead’s Record Store Day contribution will be a two-LP live album capturing performances from the second set of a show the band played in Houston on November 18, 1972.  Among the songs on the disc are “Bertha,” “Jack Straw,” “Deal,” “Sugar Magnolia,” and a marathon 25-minute rendition of “Playing in the Band.”

Metallica will release the 12-inch “Lords of Summer” single, featuring a studio and live version of the new song’s “first pass.”

The Ramones’ Record Store Day release is a disc named Morrissey Curates The Ramones.  As the title suggests, the album is a compilation featuring songs by the punk pioneers chosen personally by the former Smiths frontman.

Other exclusive vinyl releases that will be available in conjunction with the 2014 Record Store Day “Black Friday” event include discs from Bon Jovi, The Doors, Chrissie Hynde, Iron Butterfly, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Judas Priest, Ronnie James Dio, and The Velvet Underground.  You can view the entire release lineup at RecordStoreDay.com.

The Record Store Day “Black Friday” celebration will be held on November 28 in independent record stores throughout the U.S.
