Record Store Day Black Friday 2016: 25 Must-Have Records
Once again, there will be a version of Record Store Day this Nov. 25, known as Black Friday in the retail industry. We've created a gallery of all our favorite records that will be for sale, which includes such names as Alice in Chains,Soundgarden, the Ramones, Big Star, Porno for Pyros, Gary Clark Jr., Afghan Whigs, Prophets of Rage and the Stone Roses.
The Ramones record is comprised of select cuts recorded during two shows at the Roxy in Los Angeles on Aug. 12, 1976. Alice in Chains are offering a live EP of songs from Facelift that was recorded in 1990. Clark has a 10" single of "Church" b/w "The Healing" that was recorded for the Showtime series Roadies and Porno for Pyros are issuing their second album, Good God’s Urge, on vinyl for the first time ever.
And since Black Friday is also the traditional start of the holiday shopping season, there are a handful of Christmas records for sale, too, including a seven-inch red vinyl single of Bob & Doug McKenzie’s take on “Twelve Days of Christmas” (backed with their hit single, “Take Off,” which featured Geddy Lee of Rush), Run-D.M.C.’s “Christmas in Hollis” and South Park: Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics, which comes on brown, scented vinyl. You can visit Record Store Day's website for complete information.
Chuck D of Public Enemy and Prophets of Rage has been named as the official ambassador of Record Store Day Black Friday.
