Spin This Gift Idea

5005070695_882be79edc_oRecord Store Day, the annual High Holiday for audiophiles, gets a Black Friday spin-off for the fourth time. For the best chance to get limited-edition vinyl, check out the full list of releases at RecordStoreDay.com and then head down early to Zia Records, Record City or Wax Trax records. Fair warning: Not all stores carry all items listed on the website, so call ahead if you have a specific desire. Speaking of which, here’s ours:

Grateful Dead’s Family Dog at the Great Highway: A “lost” acoustic set by Bob Weir and Mickey Hart sees the light of day. Deadheads rejoice.

Stone Temple Pilots’ Core and Nirvana’s In Utero: Two grunge champions get the colored-vinyl treatment.

Dawes’ Stripped Down at Grimey’s: Record Store Day comes full circle with this release, recorded at Grimey’s in Nashville during their RSD celebration in March.
