Did you miss Record Store Day this weekend? You can read about the day’s activities here. As far as releases go, we still have several titles available in limited quantities. These are available in-store at Amoeba Hollywood and online as of the time of this writing, but as quantities are low and demand is high, you should act fast if you want anything on this list!

Big Star Complete Columbia: Live at University of Missouri 4/25/93

One of the great cult bands of all time, Big Star reformed for a live show 20 years after burning out after two fanatical student DJs from University of Missouri asked them to. The lineup consisted of original singer/guitarist Alex Chilton and drummer Jody Stephens with The Posies’ Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow. It’s the first time the performance has been commercially available and has been mastered from the original tapes, adding five performances to a 1993 release. Limited to 4,000 copies total.

Pinback Blue Screen Life

One of the great underrated bands of indie rock, Pinback’s gorgeous lines of clean guitar interplay can be heard superbly on the band’s second album. I saw some left in the store last I checked, so come in if you want it!

Jon Bunch of Sense Field and Further Seems Forever passed away tragically this year. You can pay tribute to the emo/alt-rock bands’ frontman by picking up Sense Field’s last album, originally released in 2003, on limited blue vinyl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sun Ra - Spaceways

Astral traveler Sun Ra’s Spaceways captures performances by Sun Ra and his Arkestra in New York City in 1966 and ’68. This is the album’s first vinyl release and captures the avant-garde jazz pioneer in his element. On psychedelic swirl vinyl.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Various Artists - Cambodian Cassette Archives: Khmer Folk and Pop Music Vol. 1

(UPDATE: This album is now sold out.) I walked into a store the day after RSD and heard this amazing record full of warbling analog synths, garage guitars and awesome lo-fi production. Turns out it was this RSD release. Other RSD comps currently in stock: The Rough Guide to Psychedelic Samba, The Rough Guide to East Coast Blues and Big Lizard Stomp! Teen Trash From Psychedelic Tokyo '66-'69 Vol. 2.
