  • Waiting on a Song, Dan Auerbach's second solo album, is the follow-up to 2009's Keep It Hid and is a love letter to Nashville. As such, he recruited some of Nashville's most respected players to write and record his latest, including John Prine, Duane Eddy, Jerry Douglas, Pat McLaughlin, and Bobby Wood and Gene Chrisman of the Memphis Boys. Auerbach said about working with his musical heroes: "Living in Nashville has definitely changed the way I think about music and the way that I record it. I didn't have all of these resources before. I am working with some of the greatest musicians that ever lived." Waiting on a Song is available from Auerbach's new label, Easy Eye Sound.

  • The Following Mountain represents a new approach for Sam Amidon, who shifts here from his previous norm of re-working traditional folk songs and presents nine wholly original compositions, with some lyrics drawing on traditional sources. The album was created with producer Leo Abrahams and frequent Amidon collaborator Shahzad Ismaily, with a rare guest appearance by drummer Milford Graves.

  • Emmylou Harris and the Nash Ramblers' Grammy Award–winning 1992 album, At the Ryman, was recorded live over three nights at the historic Nashville venue. It features the legendary singer and her acoustic backing band performing songs by Bill Monroe, Bruce Springsteen, Steve Earle, Stephen Foster, Nanci Griffith, and others. The New York Times declared at the time: "This record is her finest moment." This first vinyl edition was re-mastered and pressed on 140-gram double vinyl.

  • Randy Newman's Lonely at the Top: Studio Albums, 1968–77 was first released for Record Store Day 2017. It comprises his first five studio albums—Randy Newman, 12 Songs, Sail Away, Good Old Boys, and Little Criminals—on vinyl plus a bonus 45 RPM of alternate versions of "You Can Leave Your Hat On" and "Last Night I Had a Dream."

  • Emmylou Harris's Queen of the Silver Dollar: The Studio Albums, 1975–79 was first released for Record Store Day 2017. It comprises her 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 plus a bonus 45 RPM of "Light of the Stable" and "Little Drummer Boy" from her 1979 Christmas album.

  • 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—received its first-ever vinyl release for Record Store Day 2017. This two-LP, three-sided vinyl features a fourth side with 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."

  • Cellist Yo-Yo Ma, mandolinist Chris Thile, and bassist Edgar Meyer perform works by J.S. Bach originally written for keyboard instruments plus a sonata for viola da gamba. They last recorded together, with Stuart Duncan, on the Grammy-winning album The Goat Rodeo Sessions, which the Los Angeles Times called "haunting, invigorating, often breathtaking." The Times of London calls Bach Trios "effervescent" and "irresistible."

  • Tigran Hamasyan's album An Ancient Observer includes ten new compositions, two of which are based on Armenian melodies. Some are through-composed and completely written out, while others are composed with ample space for Hamasyan to improvise. He cites a wide range of influences—from Baroque dance to hip-hop grooves adapted to piano—and the sounds of his native country of Armenia are present, as always. DownBeat exclaims: "It's simply breathtaking."
