Record Store Day – an annual celebration of the over 700 independently owned record shops – is Saturday, April 18th this year. Next Tuesday, March 10th, a panel featuring Annie Clark (St. Vincent), Kate Pierson (B-52s), Kozmo Vinyl, Todd Barry, Sam Calagione and Record Store Day co-founders Michael Kurtz, Eric Levin and Carrie Colliton will hold a 1pm press conference at Rough Trade Records in Brooklyn to officially announce the full list of 2015 offerings. Over 400 releases are expected, with 254 of those being from indie labels. Hundred of these have already been announced individually by artists and labels, or confirmed by the distribution catalogs stores order their stock from. Below is a preview of the hottest items confirmed so far.
Foo Fighters — Songs From The Laundry Room EP
With Dave Grohl as this year’s Record Store Day ambassador, a Foos release was a given. The tracklist of their new EP Songs from the Laundry Room was revealed by a photo in latest issue of Kerrang! (below) of a handwritten J-card showing Dave’s recordings from Barrett Jones Laundry Room Studios revealing the tracks:
Alone + Easy Target
Kids In America
(title crossed out)
This is presumed to be Dave’s demo from January 1992, which would sync up nicely with Foos celebrating their 20th anniversary this year. Tag it as a going-back-to-the-start release.
Phish – New Year’s Eve 1995 Madison Square Garden 6LP
Last week Phish shared a photo on their facebook page showing “Side K” of an unannounced release. Sure enough New Year’s Eve 1995 – Madison Square Garden has been confirmed as a 6 LP set – that’s 12 sides! Though Phish phans will never agree on the band’s greatest concert, this show is the closest there is to consensus as one of their best. Officially released on 3 CD in 2005, this new 6 LP version will be its first on vinyl.
Trey Anastasio Band – “Bounce” b/w “Never” 7-inch
Phans have another item to save their pennies for: 1,000 copies of “Bounce” b/w “Never” will be released on 7-inch. Both songs will be on the new Trey Anastasio album, Paper Wheels, and both are currently streaming online.
Jerry Garcia — Garcia LP
The Grateful Dead guitarist’s covers-filled sophomore solo album from 1974 – also known as Compliments – will be re-released on green vinyl.

The Black Keys/Junior Kimbrough – “Meet Me in the City” 7-inch

The Zombies – R.I.P. (The Lost Album) LP
The back story goes something like this:
The Zombies had their biggest hit in 1969 with “Time of the Season,” but had been broken up for over a year by then. To capitalize on their moment in the spotlight, original members Rod Argent (keyboards) and Chris White (bass) agreed to release songs they were already writing together for a new group as follow-up singles to their hit under The Zombies name. Plans were made by their label to collect these singles with unreleased studio outtakes and issue it as the final Zombies album under the title R.I.P. When none of the singles became hits, the label didn’t follow through. All twelve tracks planned for that album appeared first on the Zombie Heaven 1997 box set and then in the originally planned sequence on a Japan-only 2008 CD. Last year R.I.P. received an official release throughout the rest of the world, and on Record Store Day it will be available on vinyl for the first time ever.

Metalica – No Life ‘Til Leather cassette
Metallica now operate their own label, Blackened Recordings, and their first order of business is re-issuing their master recordings – which they own – with an ambitious new series of special releases. This Record Store Day will see the first offering. Rather than start with their 1983 debut Kill ‘Em All, they’re going back even further to the second demo tape they circulated. Lars Ulrich recently reminisced to Rolling Stone about writing the J cards in his bedroom and mailing them to tape collectors around the world. Keeping in that spirit this 1982 demo will be released as a limited edition cassette remastered from the original tapes with the artwork replicating Ulrich’s own copy and the tracklisting in his handwriting.
