After the release of the Beat Farmers’ successful 1985 debut album Tales Of The New West, the band did a tour of the UK and Europe and while there recorded a six song EP originally only released in the UK, and never on vinyl in the US.

Perennial indie rockers Born Ruffians return with Squeeze, their seventh album. Squeeze (a companion piece to their previous album, Juice) finds the trio expanding their sound into more psychedelic territory, especially apparent on tracks like "Sinking Ships" and "Death Bed." Lead singer and songwriter Luke Lalonde shares vocal duties with indie pop luminary Hannah Georgas on "Waylaid," and the band finds a way to incorporate their anthemic, hooky roots within their new sound on "30th Century War" and "Sentimental Saddle."

If Dave Davies did nothing more than create the slash-and-burn power chords of the Kinks' "You Really Got Me" he'd earn a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As it is, the younger Davies brother has accomplished much more. His first studio album in over 20 years finds Ray's frequently overshadowed sibling reviving that rather charming '70s device, the concept album--the plot here revolving around extraterrestrial visitation and brain implantation. Davies brings the idea of benign aliens a little closer in a collection that recalls some of the best trends of the '60s and '70s. He uses a rock template that harkens back to post-Tommy Who ("The Lie"), Mott the Hoople ("Whose Fooling Who"), and Deep Purple ("It Ain't Over 'Till It's Done"), sounding rather anachronistic as a result. The songs are engaging and show Davies to be a writer of considerable skill and wit, but they're somewhat stuck in the way-back machine.
1. Who's Foolin' Who 2. It Ain't over, 'Till Its Done! 3. The Lie! 4. Let Me Be 5. Displaced Person 6. Rock You, Rock Me 7. Flowers in the Rain 8. Fortis Green 9. Why?!! 10. True Phenomenon 11. Bug 12. De-Bug 13. Life After Life (Transformation)

Bobbie’s journey from country singer-songwriter to blue eyed soul diva stopped off at a hitherto unknown destination along the way. Before she arrived at Muscle Shoals to work her magic with the late great Rick Hall, Bobbie cut a laid back album of classic and contemporary jazz tunes that was abandoned before it had chance to see the light of day. This was a shame, as Bobbie proves herself as adept in this genre as in any other. This self-produced collection first saw the light of day on the Bobbie Gentry boxset, but this lost album deserves to have its own separate release and what better format than vinyl? The set exudes a sophisticated and intimate late-night vibe mostly featuring Bobbie alone with her guitar accompanied by a bass player; occasionally there is a whisper of strings from Jimmie Haskell who famously composed the cello and violin arrangement on Ode to Billie Joe. Gentry fans will find much to love in Bobbie’s short lived but brilliant turn as a jazz singer. The original 8 tracks to be supplemented by the ‘I Didn’t Know’ and ‘Hushabye Mountain’ demos recorded around the same time, this LP also features the previously unreleased Hushabye Mountain [alternate version].

Back To The Old School may have seemed like a crazy title for a hip-hop album released in 1986. In retrospect, Just-Ice clearly saw the movement into a new school of hip-hop as artists like Run DMC and LL Cool J were moving towards mainstream commercial success. The release serves as a punctuation mark at the end of the old school of hip-hop with production by none other than Kurtis Mantronik of acclaimed electronic hip-hop group Mantronix. Long out of print on vinyl, Get On Down marks the 35th anniversary of this landmark with a deluxe splatter color vinyl edition of the LP available only for RSD Drops 2021.

1. Nothing Compares 2 u [Live] 2. The Last Day of Our Acquaintance [Live] 3. Irish Ways And Irish Laws [Live] 4. Toy [Live]
This project brings together the sophisticated songcraft of singer-songwriter Johnny O'Donnell, the iconoclastic arrangements of Van Dyke Parks, and the genial production touch of Lewis Pesacov into a refreshing and rewarding musical package that deserves the focus that only a 45RPM single provides.
Built upon a relationship formed in Los Angeles over a nearly twenty year period, the songs, penned by O'Donnell, are explorations in harmony, straddling the line between familiar and freakish. The arrangements and production are cinematic and full of drama which befits a production born of the belly of Hollywood. Romance, intrigue, and a touch of the unreal is where the tripartite of musical craftsmen have brewed this potion of melodies.
The two unreleased songs will be available for the first time as a 7" single, exclusively as part of RSD Drops.
"Cats" b/w "Funny Face"

PVRIS marked a new era with the release of Use Me in 2020, as frontwoman, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer Lynn Gunn confidently stepped forward as PVRIS’ leader and sole architect. That newfound sense of freedom defined the record, on which Lynn wrote, played the entirely of the guitar, drums, and bass parts, cooked up beats, and of course, sang vocals. Awash in glitchy beat-craft, airy guitars, and spell-binding vocals, the record included 070 Shake collaboration “Use Me,” explosive song “Hallucinations,” plus “Dead Weight,” “Gimme A Minute,” and “Death of Me” all brought to life by producer JT Daly [K. Flay].
The deluxe edition of the acclaimed third studio album featured five new tracks, including remixes of fan-favorites “Dead Weight” (remixed by Nicole Moudaber) and “Loveless,” (remixed by Lynn herself), plus brand-new song “Thank You” featuring RAYE. For the first time ever, these five tracks are now available on coke bottle clear vinyl, exclusively for RSD Drops.

One of the very rare chances – quite possibly the only chance - to listen to the genius of Ennio Morricone engaging with the jazz musical language. His soundtrack for the film The Blue-Eyed Bandit (Il Bandito Dagli Occhi Azzurri by Alfredo Giannetti, 1980) is marked by the very singular 5/4 time which creates a relentless rhythm that perfectly matches the crime atmosphere of the film. This new edition of The Blue-eyed Bandit is part of the Morricone Segreto series by CAM Sugar and it is remastered from the original tapes preserved in the historical CAM Sugar archives. This is the first official vinyl reissue of the score since its original release in 1982 on the Cerberus label. Pressed exclusively for RSD Drops on Blue vinyl.

Del Casher may not be a household name, but you’ve undoubtedly heard his music. He was a member of the famous Wrecking Crew, played on Lawrence Welk, recorded Frank Zappa’s first demo, and even backed Elvis Presley on film. His inventions include the Wah-Wah pedal and the Ecco-Fonic, influencing the development of electric guitar playing. In 1978, Casher was impressed by Bill Conti's top selling score for Rocky, and set out to make an album with original compositions of disco and jazz/funk inspired by the film. With a series of tunes written, he gathered some of the top studio players in Hollywood including Billy Preston, Stan Worth, and members of Johnny Carson's Tonight Show band. The working title for this album in the making was called “Music Inspired By Rocky And Other Compositions”. A film company who had acquired the rights to Sylvester Stallone's 1970 debut "The Party At Kitty And Stud's" heard the music and immediately recognized it as the perfect fit for their rebranded “Italian Stallion” film release. Though the score was never released outside of the film, it generated lots of interest in the early 2000’s when the internet became a widespread phenomenon, and fans began recording the audio off of the film themselves. The soundtrack for Italian Stallion stands on its own as a musical masterpiece. Over 40 years later, with the help of ORG Music, Del Casher dug up his original master tapes and assembled a record’s worth of material for the soundtrack’s first ever release. Italian Stallion will make its long overdue debut with a vinyl pressing, exclusively for RSD 2021.

First ever vinyl release of the soundtrack for this Wes Craven classic from 1991. Composer Don Peake created an incredibly atmospheric and spooky score for this film. Peake's career is insane –as a guitarist and member of the Wrecking Crew, he’s played on albums by Marvin Gaye, Phil Spector, Everly Brothers, Mahalia Jackson, John Lennon, Jackson Five and more. It's an incredible career and his musical diversity shines on this score. Fun fact: People Under the Stairs opened at #1 on the box office chart and stayed in the Top 10 for a month.

Behind The Dykes 2 - More Beat, Blues And Psychedelic Nuggets From The Lowlands 1966 - 1971 is the follow-up to the hugely successful first edition, released for RSD Drops 2020. It was picked up and released by many RSD territories, resulting in social media posts from Amsterdam and London to Nashville, Canada, Massachusetts, Sweden, Ohio, Boston, Illinois, Bratislava, Los Angeles, Portugal, Australia and many more, all using the hashtag #behindthedykes. Besides that, the album was No.1 in the Dutch compilation chart the week after its release, making it the best selling RSD release of Drop 2. And that same week it entered the US Billboard compilation chart at #5, after being tipped by Rolling Stone magazine as one of their favorite RSD 2020 releases to look out for. So more than enough reasons for a second volume, to be released on RSD 2021. The concept is the same: Much sought-after Dutch beat and psych rarities on a colored vinyl double LP, with amazing artwork, track-by-track liner notes and band photos. All songs on Volume 2 have been newly transferred and remastered from the original master tapes, some in their original mono versions, including two newly unearthed, previously unreleased gems.
