New Vinyl: $31.99 Buy
Available for Record Store Day Black Friday is the first in a series of three volumes of double LPs that will contain the entire Big Star Complete Third boxed set. Titled Vol. 1: Demos To Sessions To Roughs starts at the beginning of the album creation with demos of the songs that were all eventually cut at the sessions. Material from the sessions follows including a take on The Beach Boys’ “Don’t Worry Baby” (previously unissued in this unedited form) and oddly enough a version of “I’m In Love With A Girl” (previously unissued) from the album that was released prior to these sessions, Radio City. All the chaos and, as producer Jim Dickinson put it, “deconstruction,” is present in these early stages of recording. Vols. 2 and 3 will follow in short order in early 2017.

B2 "Art Analysis"
Equal parts primal, early rock’n’roll, deviant hill country blues, and avant-garde art, Tav Falco's Panther Burns are ramshackle, raw, unholy & utterly amazing. The historico-musico revue originated in 1979 at the nadir of Memphis’ postmodern, post-Beale, post-Sun, post-Stax era, and boasts an impressive roster of past members including Alex Chilton of Big Star, Ben Cauley of the Bar-Kays, and Jim Duckworth of The Gun Club, among many others. In an equally impressive line-up for the latest recordings, Tav Falco teams up with legendary bassist Mike Watt and drummer Toby Dammit (The Stooges, Nick Cave). The songs were recorded during the group's 2015 USA Whistle Blower Tour, and will be released exlusively for Black Friday RSD on a 7". Tav Falco's Panther Burns will release a long-awaited full length album in 2017, supported by worldwide touring.

An epic showdown between two modern day torchbearers of experimental dub music and the legendary Jamaican musical icon. On-U Sound are proud to present two exclusive new versions of an Adrian Sherwood-produced Lee “Scratch” Perry tune, sent on a far-out version excursion by the brains behind cult “8-bit reggae” label Jahtari. On the A side, Rootah turns out a casio-fried galactic funk Re-rub primed to nice up the dance. Shades of Prince Jammy’s computerised dub ricochet around a brilliantly demented vocal from The Upsetter. A distant descendent of classic Black Ark floorfiller “Disco Devil”. On the flip Disrupt spaces things out further into a maze of arcade machine blips and vocoder delay, while a soulful girl group chorus beams down from the cosmos. This is dancehall from saturn, lovers rock made by aliens. Another Pipecock Jackson premonition, another 2026 On-U Sound creation. Retro jukebox style 7” disco plate housed in a beautifully designed house bag, strictly limited edition for Black Friday Record Store Day.
Side A - "Scientific Dancehall (Rootah Version)"
Side B - "Scientific Dancehall (Disrupt Dub)"

(Justin Time Essentials Collection) Love for Sale – recorded live at Montreal’s Rising Sun Celebrity Club in 1978 and available on vinyl for the first time, provides an unexpurgated glimpse into the musical reality of Chet Baker’s last years; a life on the move from club to club across North America and Europe. The music was often loose and ragged. But there is a solo on “Snowbound” that is the kind of Baker moment you wait for. It is fragile threads of luminous melody, discovered by a series of existential choices so slow they sometimes almost stop.
A1: "Milestone" B1:"Oh You Crazy Moon" B2:"There Will Never Be Another You" C1:"Snowbound" D1:"Love For Sale" D2:"Love For Sale (Late Night Remix)"

The Film: This strikingly shot concert documentary follows enigmatic Drag City singer-songwriter Bill Callahan on a two week tour from California to New York. For the past 25 years, under both the Smog moniker and under his own name, Callahan has cultivated a legacy as both a pioneer in the lo-fi movement and one of the country’s finest troubadours. The film is built on impressionistic scenes of Callahan’s life on the road combined with his cryptic musings ("I started playing music when I was 20, and time stopped for me then in a good way”), creating a voyeuristic glimpse into his meticulously constructed universe of disaffection and disorder. It is an austere and beautiful portrait of both the musician and the multifarious American landscape.
The Gatefold LP packaging will include the DVD of the film and an LP of exclusive vinyl only tracks.

Presented as the first in a two part series, this reissue shines a new light on the fantastic recording from a world-renowned jazz great.

The Grammy-nominated U.K. duo – brothers Guy and Howard Lawrence – gave the lead-off track “BOSS” its first live performance at their self-curated Wild Life Festival in the U.K. Anchored around Howard’s pitched-down vocal, the song is a tour de force of propulsive hi-hats, liquid bass and incendiary dynamics. The intoxicatingly soulful “Feel Like I Do” came together after Guy sampled soul legend Al Green’s classic hit “I’m Still In Love With You” off a batch of vinyl he had purchased. When Disclosure sought approval to use the track, the request reached the ears of The Reverend himself. Green loved it so much that he made an exception to his usual practice and gave Guy the original recording stems to work with.
2. "Feel Like I Do", 3. "Moog For Love"
Perhaps one of the most important blues recordings of all time, Frank Frost's Hey Boss Man! has long been a "white whale" for many record collectors. The album is one of the last blues records to be producded by the legendary Sam Phillips. Frost and his Mississippi cohorts Jack Johnson and Sam Carr played Southern juke joint blues, rough & ready in the classic mold, with plenty of dynamic interplay and nasty, lowdown grooves. This limited edition red color vinyl reissue marks the first US vinyl release since the original pressing in 1962!
