Aerosmith, Jimi Hendrix Announce Record Store Day Exclusives
(Courtesy of http://ultimateclassicrock.com/) – Record Store Day is coming up fast, and two of classic rock’s finest have been added to the list of artists who will have exclusives available for the annual event. Legacy Recordings will be offering up vinyl exclusives on Aerosmith and Jimi Hendrix for this year’s celebration of independent record stores.
Aerosmith’s first three albums will be available in exclusive vinyl editions. ‘Aerosmith,’ ‘Get Your Wings’ and ‘Toys in the Attic’ will be packaged as 12″ 180-gram audiophile vinyl LPs, each in an individually numbered jacket. These are RSD editions newly re-mastered from the original source tapes.
Legacy is also offering Jimi Hendrix’ ‘Hey Joe’ with the B-side ‘Stone Free’ as a 7″ 45 RPM vinyl single. These are the original mono mixes created in 1966 for the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s first U.K. single. They have not been commercially available since.
This year’s Record Store Day takes place on April 20. Other classic rockers releasing exclusives include Paul McCartney, Cream, David Bowie and Bob Dylan.
