Record Store Day on Nov. 25 offers new releases, multi-colored vinyl
Record Store Day began in Baltimore, Maryland in 2007. Held twice a year in April and on the day after Thanksgiving, Record Store Day celebrates the culture of independently-owned record stores. A culture that encourages music discovery, and now satisfies the nostalgia for vinyl records with a twist — multi-colored vinyl.
This Friday's Record Store Day offerings include:
- Guitarist Larry Coryell's 1969 album "Coryell," re-issued on rose colored vinyl.
- Latin Jazz from Paquito D’Rivera & Arturo Sandoval, a re-issue of their 1991 "Reunion" album, the first recording they made together after both had defected from Cuba.
- Ahmad Jamal – Emerald City Nights: Live at the Penthouse, two volumes: 1963-1964 and 1965-1966, recorded by KNKX's Jim Wilke in Seattle.
