Record Store Day 2016
Austin’s 13th Floor Elevators can be argued to be the first ever Psychedelic Rock band. Originally released in 1966, this release commemorates the 50th anniversary of the song which reached #55 on the Billboard Top 100 and lead to an appearance on American Band Stand. The iconic psychedelic raver backed with the original b-side of the single, Tried To Hide. The art is by John Cleveland, and originally adorned the bass drum of the John Ike Walton’s kit in the band. The tracks here are taken from a French EP, furthering the RSD 2016 theme of celebrating the relationship between the US and France.
"You're Gonna Miss Me" b/w "Tried To Hide" (French EP Version)
The "Pacific State" single charted for nine weeks in the United Kingdom, peaking at #10 on the UK Singles Chart in 1989. Three remixes and the original version are featured on this special Record Store Day limited edition 45 RPM 12”. Limited Edition to 2000 copies on blue & black mixed vinyl.

For Record Store Day, three unreleased African Head Charge cuts from their early days, discovered in the depths of the On-U tape archives. The A-side unveils a spacey, beautiful version of “Beri Beri” from 1982’s Environmental Studies. Stripping back the furious layers of percussion from the mix that appeared on the album, this version throws more light onto Deadly Headly Bennett’s gorgeous sax work and the irrestistable slow motion funk of the rhythm track. Disco as heard in one of the nightclubs from Blade Runner, or a lost balearic anthem from an alternate reality where JA sound systems invade 80s Ibiza. On the flip, the completely unheard “Realigned Dub” is a masterclass in overlapping rhythms, with drum track and dub-filtered percussion dovetailing around a nonchalant bassline somehow holding the whole thing together. Olatunji-meets-Cymnade! To close proceedings, a sequel to a track from 1981’s My Life In The Hole In The Ground subtracts some of the distinctive boing of the African kuwenge heard in Part 1, but adds melodica drops administered by Doctor Pablo, and some spooky tape-mangled voices from the ether. Cut from the original tapes by CGB at dubplates & mastering in Berlin, this is an essential piece of African Head Charge history which sounds as effective as an immersive headphone listen as it does blasting out of a wall of speakers.

For the first time ever on vinyl, The Autumn Defense's stellar debut finally arrives on the format it always deserved to be on. Wilco bassist John Stirratt and multi-instrumentalist Pat Sansone create timeless orchestral pop. Inspired by The Beach Boys and Love, their lush debut album glows with fertile songs about long forgotten loves, endless summers and electric moons. The LP gently swings from Gene Clark country to Big Star pop via XTC psych, and even includes a masterful Mermaid Avenue-esque collaboration with the ghost of Woody Guthrie. For RSD 16, Be With Records presents the limited first vinyl edition, lovingly remastered with upgraded artwork throughout. Preferred Summerteeth to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot? Here's your follow-up.

This Record Store Day release is limited in the U.S. to 500 copies and on transparent royal blue vinyl, and features extensive bonus tracks available via download. Originally self-released by Nick Saloman and limited to just 500 copies, the debut from The Bevis Frond marked the beginning of a highly influential career in underground British neo-psych-rock. Armed with a four-track portastudio, the success of 1986’s “Miasma” saw it unexpectedly sell-out quickly with a repress not far behind. Sounding as bracing today as it did then, it collects some of Saloman’s finest songs. Having played in bands since the late 60’s, and constantly writing, Saloman had founded The Von Trap Family and played in Room 13 among others. In fact, he had almost called it a day, but it was the popularity of “Miasma” that saw him continue onward and establish himself as an underground legend. A labour of love and fiercely independent, his prolific output has seen as many releases in as many years, an uncompromising vision all under his own label Woronzow. Hailed as “a Hendrix devotee ever bit as tough and contemporary as the serrated guitar chorales of Sonic Youth and Pixies” by Rolling Stone’s David Fricke, his immense psych-stoner-rock has seen him become a cult figure in his own right. The Bevis Frond’s legion of loyal fans includes Teenage Fanclub, Dinosaur Jr and Mary Lou Lord, who have all covered his music.

The mythic, yet, short lived Memphis band comprised of Alex Chilton, Chris Bell, Andy Hummel, and Jody Stephens named Big Star, resides in the highest realms of power pop accolades for their three - at the time, overlooked- studio albums recorded between 1972-1974. Twenty years after their unceremonious dissolution, drummer Stephens recruited Posies' Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow and a wary Alex Chilton to reform Big Star at the request of two fanatical student DJs from University of Missouri. This two LP Record Store Day gatefold package finally captures that full historic set for the first time on a commercial release, mastered at high resolution from the original master tapes, and adding five previously unreleased performances to it’s original release in 1993 and now accurately re-titled, Complete Columbia: Live at University of Missouri 4/25/93. Limited to 4,000 copies.

Music On Vinyl and Sly & Robbie's legendary TAXI label collaborate with Record Store Day on this 4-track EP of brand new, previously unavailable material from two of Reggae's best singers: Bitty McLean and Bunny Rugs from Third World, including "War Is Over" over a brand new "riddim" (Jamaican term for instrumental). On "Let Me Go Bar Bell Stylee" Bitty covers his hit over a riddim built using a loop from a 1975 Barbell production. Side B features the late great Bunny Rugs, one of Jamaica's most recognizable voices, better known as the lead singer of mega group Third World. In 2009 Rugs booked studio time to record new songs and in 2009 in Paris to work with producer and Sly & Robbie associate Guillaume Bougard on a new solo album produced with Sly & Robbie. This RSD release features a poignant and soulful cover of "Rumours", one of Gregory's biggest hits. The song is followed by a earth shaking remix by Bitty McLean who mashes Bunny's vocals with a riddim built from a loop of Sly & Robbie's "Guess who's coming to dinner" instrumental they had originally made for Black Uhuru in 1978. That song had been sitting in the TAXI vaults until now and we are happy to introduce it to the public at last on Record Store Day. Limited Edition of 1500 numbered copies on red vinyl.

A classic DIY release, Field Rexx was made in the sweltering summer of 2004 with no budget amidst the hiss of flies and tape. “Recorded,” according to the liner notes, “at the carny shack, fer shook n timsel on Duke’s shoot-o-matic for tisks & soda & that ol’ broke 4-track that 3-fingrd mike poured Old English on and lit on fire,” Rexx’s warped eclectic pop Americana proves that great songs and performances can transcend squalor and bad album art. Features archival material of the original Trapper, James Earley, performing snippets of traditional hillbilly tunes. Field Rexx is Blitzen Trapper's self-released sophomore album originally released in 2005. It was remastered at the tail end of 2015 and is available on Record Store Day for the first time on vinyl.

On June 7, 2000 Blonde Redhead stepped into the BBC's Radio 1 Yalding House studios for what would be their sole Peel Session, a setting particularly important as it inspired the namesake of one of this 7" single's two songs. "Where is John?" a nervous producer asked again and again, pacing the room, unable to locate the revered radio host, as a warmed up Blonde Redhead waited patiently. The trio's affection for Peel dated to a very early tour in 1995, when they were lost among the tumbleweeds of a barren Texas landscape. As the band turned the crackling radio dial, the celebrated radio presenter's Northern English accent suddenly piped through their van's speakers with high praise for the track "Violent Life" from their recently released sophomore LP, La Mia Vita Violenta. This unexpected bit of encouragement from Peel helped give the young, extremely road weary and relatively unknown trio the confidence and validation to press on in what had proven to be an arduous road expedition. Five years later, the seasoned threesome eventually played live for Peel's show, and it seemed only fitting that the they christen a brand new, yet-to-be-titled song after their only session with the man held deep in their collective heart. Remastered and released here for the first time on vinyl, "Where is John?" b/w "Missile ++" speaks not only of a band in the prime of their celebrated sound, but also of the people who helped along the way.
"Where Is John?"/"Missile"
In 2012 Bonobo posted his unofficial remix of the 1977 gem 'Les "Là-Bas” by french jazz legend Henri Texier. Texier began his career at age 15 playing piano in nightclubs, but he soon switched to bass in order to play in the big band of Jef Gilson. Over the years he has gained recognition for his work in developing a type of jazz that is uniquely French and not beholden to American models. This Record Store Day official 12" release includes the Bonobo remix and the original by Texier. Artwork designed by the excellent Leif Podhajsky, who did the The North Borders artwork for Bonobo.
