    Emmylou Harris, Randy Newman, Allen Toussaint Record Store Day Releases Now in Nonesuch Store

    When the 10th annual Record Store Day celebration took place last month, among the special items were new vinyl releases featuring classic titles from three artists familiar to readers of the Nonesuch Journal: Allen Toussaint, Emmylou Harris, and Randy Newman. A limited number of all three vinyl releases is now available in the Nonesuch Store.

    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." To order it in the Nonesuch Store, click here.

    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. To order it in the Nonesuch Store, click here.

    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. To order it in the Nonesuch Store, click here.

    Ry Cooder's critically acclaimed album Chávez Ravine, first released on Nonesuch Records in 2005, will make its vinyl debut on September 6. With a cast of legendary Chicano musicians, Cooder recounts the story of how a Mexican-American community was razed to make way for L.A.'s Dodger Stadium. "A remarkable song cycle," said Rolling Stone, "a brilliant and flavorful film-noir history lesson." The two-LP vinyl edition was remastered from the original high-resolution source files and pressed on 140-gram vinyl. The set comes in a gatefold tip-on jacket with a twenty-page, full-color booklet. It is available to pre-order now in the Nonesuch Store.
