A press release notes that it's the most number of albums the label has issued in the 11 years that Record Store Day has taken place. Among this year's offerings are limited-edition releases by such artists as AC/DC, Pink Floyd and Bruce Springsteen.
Pink Floyd are reissuing their debut, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, on mono vinyl for the first time in 50 years. Springsteen will see his 1995 Greatest Hits compilation issued on individually numbered red vinyl, while AC/DC's Back in Black will be sold on cassette. The document of the 1987 tour by Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead, Dylan & the Dead, will be sold on red and blue tie-dye vinyl.
Legacy also revealed that the Allman Brothers Band's Live at the Atlanta Pop Festival, July 3 & 5, 1970, one of their most famous concerts prior to their At Fillmore East breakthrough, will be available for the first time on vinyl, with four discs housed in a box set with eight pages of notes and photos. A similar treatment has been given to Jeff Buckley's Live at Sin-é: Legacy Edition.
Johnny Cash's legendary At Folsom Prison is coming out in a special five-LP collection that combines the entirety of both sets Cash performed that day, as well as performances by June Carter, Carl Perkins and the Statler Brothers. Included in the package is a 12" single of rehearsals the band ran through at a Sacramento, Calif., hotel the night before the shows and an eight-page 12" x 12" booklet.
