Legacy Recordings To Drop Live Performances From Janis Joplin, Elvis Presley & More For Record Store Day
Janis Joplin and Sly & The Family Stone's Woodstock performances and Elvis Presley, Live At The International Hotel, Las Vegas, NV August 23, 1969 are just a few of the unique and collectible titles coming from Legacy Recordings in time for Record Store Day 2019 on April 13. The cultural riches offered on RSD tempt vinyl listeners steadily, and these provide a good example.
Other delectable collectibles include Bob Dylan Blood On The Tracks – Original New York Test Pressing, a reproduction of the influential original which has been bootlegged but never before released. The Prince cassette The VERSACE Experience: PRELUDE 2 GOLD is an RSD-exclusive reproduction of the rare originals, which Prince distributed as gifts during 1995 Paris Fashion Week.
Pink Floyd's second album, A Saucerful Of Secrets, has been remastered from the 1968 original's mono mix and is released as an RSD limited edition with a reproduction of the album's original sleeve. The Dennis Wilson 7" single of "Holy Man" has the original by Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys on one side and a revitalization on the other by Foo Fighters' Taylor Hawkins with Queen's Brian May and Roger Taylor.
