    Record Store Day to Feature Allen Toussaint, Emmylou Harris, Randy Newman Vinyl Releases

    Record Store Day, the annual celebration of independent record stores, takes place this Saturday, April 22, 2017, and included among the special releases on that day are new vinyl releases featuring classic titles from three artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Allen Toussaint, Emmylou Harris, and Randy Newman.

    The Allen Toussaint Collection, a 1991 compilation of tracks from the legendary New Orleans musician's first four albums—From a Whisper to a Scream; Life, Love and Faith; Southern Nights; and Motion—receives its first-ever vinyl release in this two-LP, three-sided pressing, limited to 1,500. The fourth side of the vinyl features an etching of a quotation from Toussaint. All Music Guide calls the set "one of the greatest greatest hits albums of '70s soul, funk, and R&B."

    Emmylou Harris's Queen of the Silver Dollar: The Studio Albums, 1975–79 comprises Harris's first five studio albums—Pieces of the Sky, Elite Hotel, Luxury Liner, Quarter Moon in a Ten Cent Town, and Blue Kentucky Girl—on vinyl and a bonus 45 RPM of "Light of the Stable" and "Little Drummer Boy" from her 1979 Christmas album. The collection will receive a limited release of 1,000.

    Randy Newman's Lonely at the Top: Studio Albums, 1968–77 comprises Newman's first five studio albums—Randy Newman, 12 Songs, Sail Away, Good Old Boys, and Little Criminals—on vinyl and a bonus 45 RPM of alternate versions of "You Can Leave Your Hat On" and "Last Night I Had a Dream." The collection will receive a limited release of 1,000.

    This year marks the 10th anniversary of Record Store Day, which celebrates the unique culture surrounding over 1,000 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally. To find out what special releases will be available at a participating local retailer near you, head to recordstoreday.com.
