Record Store Day 2017

Record Store Day 2017

For music junkies like ourselves here at CHPTR, Record Store Day is one of the ‘most woooonderful time of the year….’ Here are a few or our picks for this year’s Record Store Day and reasons to get out of bed, queue up, and cross your fingers you get a chance to cop one of these gems…

David Bowie – Cracked Actor (Live in LA 1974) – nThis one is easy… unreleased live Bowie… nuff said…

Frank N Dank & Jay Dee – A Dilla release on Record Store Day is pretty par for the course…

Slick Rick – A Children’s Story – A seminal hip hop track now accompanied by a legit children’s book.

Numero Group: Southwest Side Story – Evocative of the old school lowrider bootlegs this has some heat that has only seen the light of day in Texas.

Busy P & DJ Mehdi – Classic Ed Banger… this one will have legs on decks on decks on decks for fans of that scene

Andre 3000 – A wax release of a super hard to find track period?  Count our stacks on this three stacks release.

Vangelis – Blade Runner OST (Picture Disc) – One of our favorite movies getting the picture disc release… just like the previous OST’s released in similar fashion expect a secondary market clamor and price spike.

Gil Melle – Andromeda Strain OST (Hexagon Shaped Vinyl LP) – See above.
Danny Brown – Ain’t It Funny 10″ – Worth it just for the Clams Casino joint that was featured on Adult Swim.

Lil Uzi Vert vs The World – Glad to see labels supporting Record Stay Day with legit drops… this is one of the hottest albums and should see some secondary market growth with its limited release.

Africa – Toto (Die Cut Picture Disc) – One of the 80’s seminal tunes gets a die cut picture disc a la D.R.A.M.’s Broccoli and UGK’s International Player’s Anthem last year… expect a sell out and price spike like those two previous releases.

A Bronx Tale – OST – Cogliostro says cop this for some rare doo wop and its uber limited release.

Prince – Little Red Corvette/1999 – Prince. Picture Disc.  Need we say more?

Mayer Hawthorne – Party of One EP – I personally have a soft spot for any of Mayer’s releases as he gave me my first break as a writer/shooter/content creator; nevertheless, this is a solid release that’s worth your time.

Duff Breaks – Itch and Scratchy making you itch.  Some classic and new cannon fodder for the producers and turntablists.

The Smiths – The Boy With The Thorn In His Side – This has seen the light of day, but the demo version featured here is the reason to cop. This is the closest you’ll get to a Smiths reunion…

Bullet For My Valentine – Don’t Need You – They blew out the speakers at FYF 13 playing this… now you can replicate it at home.

Banks and Steelz – Wild Season – Interpol x Wu Tang Clan x Florence??? C’mon… you know you want it… we’re copping two to make it harder for ya’ll…

Dee Lite – Groove Is In The Heart – Classic. Classic. Classic House.

Big L – Devil’s Son – We almost went with the Biggie – Born Again for this last pic… but Big L tracks from the vaults… Any legit hip hop head would be on this…
