Record Store Day is coming this Saturday, April 18, and we’ve got a look into some of the great stuff that’s headed our way that day. Read about everything we have going on in all of our stores here

First up is the much-discussed Jack White reissue of Elvis Presley’s first-ever recording, “My Happiness,” recorded to acetate on July 18, 1953, at Memphis Recording Service. White paid $300,000 for the recording at auction in Graceland this January, and his label, Third Man Records, will release the song as a limited-edition acetate facsimile 10” on RSD along with Presley’s second recording, “That's When Your Heartaches Begin.” It’ll also be released as a 7” later this year. Hear a preview below:

And check out these photos of some of the releases that are sitting in our stores and waiting for you on April 18, including a reissue Metallica’s first-ever release, the demo tape No Life ‘Til Leather, and N.W.A.'s classic debut, Straight Outta Compton, on cassette; and the Kinks’ first-ever EP, Kinksize Session, on vinyl. Plus, we've got a Ramones-themed Crosley Cruiser turntable! Check 'em out below:

Black Friday launches the holiday shopping season the day after Thanksgiving with lots of great deals. Instead of yanking someone by the hair off of that $10 barbecue set at Wal-Marts or whatever, you can come to Amoeba for a variety of deals on turntables, Blu-rays, gift certificates and more. Additionally, there will be nearly 140 Record Store Day exclusive Black Friday releases to choose from—see the whole list (.pdf) here. That’s a lot of records, bro/broette! Here are 10 that stood out to me.

David BowieSue (Or in a Season of Crime) 12”

david bowie sue or in a season of crime“Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)” is an unsettling new David Bowie track full of jazzy horns and creepy lyrics about a dissolving relationship that may end in murder. It’s backed on this 7” by another new Bowie song, “Tis a Pity She Was a Whore,” a fluctuating electro-rocker that shares its name with a play from the 1600s by John Ford. Both songs will also appear on the Bowie retrospective Nothing Has Changed, which came out today, but here’s your chance to get them separately from that. Hear both tracks in all their maddening glory below:

10 Bands We'd Like to See Reunite

Posted by Billy Gil, January 29, 2014 11:11am | Post a Comment

Two of our favorite bands of all time — OutKast and Slowdiveare officially reuniting. OutKast announced it a couple weeks back, with news that the Southern rap legends will headline Coachella and play Governernor’s Ball in New York, though it seems likely we’ll see another Big Boi album before a new OutKast album (and we’re OK with that!). Meanwhile, shoegaze titans Slowdive yesterday confirmed rumors (that they themselves flamed) that they’d reunite, playing Primavera in Barcelona in May and “a couple of gigs,” including a show at Village Underground in London May 19 (better book your tickets now!), in order to raise funds for a new LP.

With those two reunions locked down, we thought we’d turn our attention from bands we liked that reunited to bands we’d like to see reunite.

Talking Heads

talking heads amoebaThis one seems a no-brainer. They exactly been quiet since they first broke up in 1991, from briefly “reuniting” onstage in 2002 to play three songs for their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, to David Byrnes solo career (including a one-off album with St. Vincent), to the other members’ activity, including The Heads and Tom Tom Club. And the band seems more popular and prescient than ever. So, everyone’s still alive and working.
