Record Store Day Saturday 18 April this year features a Jimi Hendrix 7" single, Purple Haze (Live Recording) b/w Freedom, released by CMG/Sony Music and allegedly limited to 1000 copies.

The US website says: This double A-side single features two electrifying tracks recorded live at the Atlanta Pop Festival in Byron, Georgia, on July 4, 1970; an incredible sonic document from Hendrix's Cry of Love tour.

Some other interesting material - unreleased tracks from Mumford & Sons, 4 early Foo Fighters tracks on 10" vinyl, an early John Martyn single (750 copies), Steve Reich, and a Brian Eno set, My Squelchy Life, which was originally pulled.

Anyone else cynical about RSD? You stand in line on a chilly April morning alongside a hundred or so (almost all) male saddoes of a similar age (well, ish); they only let 10 or so in at a time, then most of what you want has already gone, or has it been put aside by the shop to sell on an online auction site? :o

Hope the Jimi single has a good picture cover.

Spin has a purple vinyl edition of this single for £12.99 released on 27 April - see here: http://www.spincds.com/coming-soon/necrocopia-cd-44765

This is the queue for Piccadilly Records in Manchester which is on the far side of this building. I went to the pub and then bought a copy on eBay for a tenner. A much better way to spend a cold day in Manchester. It might look sunny but it was bloody cold. Whereas The Moon On The Water was toasty warm and does a nice Peri Peri Chicken.

Great idea but I hate to feed the greedy people on e bay, especially those shops that hold back items simply to sell at even higher prices on e bay!

As for the disc itself.
The rear shows the cover and title of the upcoming Atlanta release and the EK mix is [for me at least] the best he has done on a Live recording of Hendrix [well the one's we have heard thus far, lol].

Very instant, very real. Just what was AD thinking of?
