Arcade Fire

Frequently cited as one of the most important alternative songs of the 2000s, “Neighborhood #1 (Tunnels)” – the opening track on debut album Funeral – was an early introduction to the trademark Arcade Fire sound and encapsulates the essence of the music and themes on Funeral. The B-side, “My Buddy” by the Alvino Rey Orchestra, pays tribute to Will and Win Butler’s late grandfather, the Jazz musician Alvino Rey whose passing during the early part of Arcade Fire’s career would greatly influence Funeral.

This RSD Black Friday 7” replicates the original Merge Records single – first released in June 2004 – the debut single from the band. Originally limited to 1500 copies, it has become a highly collectable item amongst fans over the years.

The Comet Is Coming

The Comet Is Coming is: Danalogue (synths), Betamax (drums) and King Shabaka (saxophone) and they follow up their critically acclaimed Trust in The Lifeforce of the Deep Mystery with The Afterlife EP.

“The two records can be seen as companions, that cannot exist without each other, like day and night, light and dark, creation and destruction. They were made together, at the same time, and have always been intended to be experienced together,” says Danalogue. “The Afterlife has been a topic of deep consideration and one of the keys to spiritual mythology around the world for millenia… The idea of a form of continuation of consciousness from our perceived reality into another state brings an extra dimension of meaning into the gravitas of our actions in this life, our respect and reverence for our ancestors, as well as the sense of a continuum of life over an infinite, timeless void.”

1. “All That Matters is the Moments” (ft. Joshua Idehen) 2. “The Softness of the Present” 3. “The Afterlife” 4. “Lifeforce Part I” 5. “Lifeforce Part II” 6. “The Seven Planetary Heavens”

Bill Conti

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe made their retail debut in 1982 because executives at Mattel wanted their own line of action figures to compete with Kenner's blockbuster Star Wars toys.

Miles Davis

Miles Davis was on the verge of forming one of his most acclaimed ensembles in 1964. It was this year that he travelled to perform in Japan for the first time, bringing with him 3/4ths of the musicians that would form his famed "second great quartet": Herbie Hancock on piano, Ron Carter on double bass, and Tony Williams on drums. In addition, the jazz legend brought along saxophonist Sam Rivers to replace the recently exited George Coleman.

Davis and Rivers never developed any major chemistry and frequently found their distinct styles clashing (or perhaps dueling) in their performances. Rivers would ultimately be dismissed from the group at the end of their trip, leading to the arrival of Wayne Shorter, and the inception of the second great quintet.

The partnership of Miles Davis and Sam Rivers may have been short-lived, but it did produce the live album Miles In Tokyo. The record is a rare jewel in Miles Davis' discography, featuring high-energy live versions of songs by Rodgers & Hart, Cole Porter, and Richard Carpenter, as well as a restlessly fast-paced take on the Davis staple "So What". This collection has previously only been available in Japan, but is now presented on vinyl for the first time in America by Get On Down, just in time for RSD Black Friday.

A Side : “If I Were A Bell”, “My Funny Valentine”
B Side : “So What”, “Walkin”, “All Of You”

In the early 1980s the “Warner Bros. Music Show” series was mailed to radio stations as promo copies, to be aired only once as a radio show.

Dr. John

When Dr. John hit the studio in 1968 to record Babylon, America was in a very turbulent period. On top of that, Dr. John was being pursued by various Los Angeles authorities for a handful of criminal offenses. It was, in his own words: "a heavy time for me."

This set the stage for Babylon being a reflection of the chaotic and tumultuous time that he was living in. He and his band dove deeper into the voodoo-inflected psychedelic rock and the R&B of Gris-Gris, while touching upon elements of free jazz and Captain Beefheart-style avant garde. Babylon stands out as a psychedelic swamp of apocalyptic lyrical content, drunk, disorienting experimentation, and a fascinating entry into Dr. John's catalogue well-worthy of his expansive legacy.

Out of print on vinyl for 40 years, Get On Down is all too eager to reissue this unique recording for RSD Black Friday. In keeping with the album's hallucinogenic sound, it is presented on trippy never to be repeated splatter-colored vinyl and housed in a deluxe gatefold jacket.

Edan

While Edan’s critically acclaimed debut, Primitive Plus, was a celebration of hip-hop’s golden age and a true throwback, his sophomore album, Beauty And The Beat, is a vast musical collage that contains many different influences; Hip-hop, rock, pop, dusty breaks, hazy loops, luxurious off-kilter samples and curveball tempo changes that are all crafted into one cohesive piece of art.
In 2015, FACT placed it at number 30 on the "100 Best Indie Hip-Hop Records of All Time" list. In 2013 NME placed it at number 392 on the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list.

“A goofy psychedelic gem. It’s like ‘The Grey Album’ in technicolour” - Vice

“Edan has a seemingly bottomless musical curiosity… he unites old school hip-hop’s aesthetics with a previous generation’s sense of grooviness” - The Washington Post

“Impossibly ambitious, as psychedelic as Mythos, as unrelenting as the Ultramagnetic MCs, Edan is a master in possession of his own style. One of the best and most original records to come out this decade” - XLR8R

“A full tab of b-boy psychedelia… a creative quantum leap forward” - XXL

“With an awe-inspiring imagination in tow, Edan drops his own magical mystery tour” - URB

“Nothing is fucking with Edan right now. ‘Beauty and the Beat’ is the best hip-hop I’ve heard in a long time” - Mass Appeal

Gun Club

The Gun Club were a highly influential post-punk/ blues band from Los Angeles, CA that existed from 1979 to 1996.

Herbie Hancock

Throughout the 1970s, legendary jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock engaged in a prolonged period of experimentation across sounds and recording formats, releasing several albums for Columbia that were only issued in Japan. 1979's Directstep was one such album, one that made use of a new form of recording technology called "Direct-To-Disc." This method recorded masters, in real time, to acetate discs, rendering incredibly high fidelity LP pressings, but sacrificing the ability to edit or overdub, a challenge Hancock and his group were more than up to.

Directstep utilized other technological advancements as well, incorporating brand new electronic instrument technology such as the electronic wind instrument the Lyricon, the freshly released Propet-5 synthesizer, and of course the Sennheiser Vocoder which would become a key part of the artist’s arsenal during his electro-funk period in the 1980s.

Beyond all that, Directstep is an incredibly solid collection of Herbie Hancock material, featuring stirring remakes of Hancock staples "Butterfly" and "I Thought It Was You" as well as brand new track "Shiftless Shuffle." Get On Down is proud to present this reissue of Directstep, a gem of jazz-fusion, available on vinyl for the first time in 30 years for RSD Black Friday!

A Side: “Butterfly”
B Side : “Shiftless Shuffle”, “I Thought It Was You”
