PRNewsFoto/Legacy RecordingsWith the 2017 Record Store Day scheduled for Saturday, April 22, Sony’s Legacy Recordings label has announced its list of special limited-edition releases for the campaign. Among the collectible discs being issued are vinyl offerings from Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, The Beach Boys‘ Dennis Wilson, Santana, Toto and Harry Nilsson.
Springsteen & the E Street Band’s Record Store Day release is Hammersmith Odeon London ’75, a four-LP set documenting the group first-ever performance outside of the U.S. The show took place on November 18, 1975, a few months after The Boss issued his landmark Born to Run album.
Wilson’s contribution is the two-LP set Bambu (The Caribou Sessions), a collection of solo recordings the Beach Boys drummer made in 1978, but which weren’t released until 2008. The upcoming release is pressed on colored vinyl.
Santana’s offering is Live at the Woodstock Music & Art Fair, August 16, 1969, a single-LP collection that features the memorable performance that put the legendary San Francisco rock band on the map.
Toto will issue a 12-inch picture-disc single featuring its hits “Africa” and “Rosanna.” The vinyl disc, which recreates a limited-edition 1982 release, is shaped like the continent of Africa.
Nilsson’s Record Store Day release is a colored-vinyl version of his classic 1971 album, Nilsson Schmilsson, which incudes his hits “Without You,” “Coconut” and “Jump into the Fire.” The disc is pressed on yellow and white vinyl.
Other 2017 Record Store Day releases from Legacy Recordings include discs by Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, Johnny Mathis and Dave Matthews Band, as well as a previously announced single by Pink Floyd featuring an unreleased version of “Interstellar Overdrive.”
