Record Store Day is Saturday and it's a day I LOVE EVERY year. Either hitting Rasputin on Blackstone or Tower District Records in the well..............Tower District. This below are a few of things we may fight over day of. I don't mean full fights, but I may run and grab it first. Plus, I'll have my kid with me, so not much I can do if you get something first.
Alice in Chains - Get Born
This special Alice in Chains 45 RPM double 7” single collects four hard-hitting tracks remastered and available on vinyl for the first time. “What the Hell Have I” and “A Little Bitter,” released on the soundtrack to the Arnold Schwarzenegger film Last Action Hero in 1993, were the first to feature new bassist Mike Inez, who’d played with Ozzy Osbourne for five years. “Get Born Again” and “Died,” released on the box set Music Bank in 1999, were the band’s final recordings with original vocalist Layne Staley.
Cheap Trick - the Epic Archive Vol One
Consisting of single mixes/edits, soundtrack, non-LP tracks and other rarities, this yellow vinyl double LP presents eighteen rarities from the early years of this seminal power pop band.

Toto - Africa (12' picture disc)
Yes, totally serious about this one. Two of Toto’s biggest hits—the chart-topping “Africa” and Grammy Award-winning smash “Rosanna”—return to vinyl on a special recreation of a limited edition, die-cut, Africa-shaped picture disc originally released in 1982, featuring a map of the continent on the A-side and an image of actress Rosanna Arquette, the inspiration for “Rosanna,” on the B-side. This is the first release in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Toto, one of the best-selling and most virtuosic rock bands of all time.
Check with wherever you are going 1st since some places get things, some don't, etc. See you Saturday.
