More than a day, Record Store Day is a holiday for vinyl collectors and casual music fans alike. This Saturday marks the twelfth year for the US and UK event. Plan out your hunt with these record recommendations from DerekPlease.com!
Madonna – La Isla Bonita — 1 LP — RSD Exclusive Release
Madonna’s Latin-inspired, classic hit on green vinyl.
Madonna – True Blue (Super Club Mix) — 1 LP — RSD Exclusive Release
On blue vinyl! Although I wish Record Store Day would press one of the big Madonna releases missing from the vinyl format – like GHV2 or any of her live albums – I’m still buying these two Japanese re-pressings.
Mark Ronson featuring Miley Cyrus – Nothing Breaks Like A Heart — 1 LP — Quantity: 1500
Criminally slept on, Mark Ronson’s single “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart (feat. Miley Cyrus)” was not only the return of Miley Cyrus, but a genuinely hit-worthy song. Features the original song and two radio-length remixes.
Robyn – Body Talk — 2 x LP — Quantity: 2500 — RSD Exclusive Release
A custom-tailored 2019 reworking of Robyn’s Body Talk album with a track listing selected by the artist herself. It’s a welcome some-what re-issue of than the album, as the original version is currently selling for over $500 on Discogs. For avid pop fans – and, well, gay people in general – this is a Record Store Day must.
Sheena Easton – Sugar Walls — 12” Picture Disc — Quantity: 600 — RSD Limited Run / Regional Focus Release
A controversial single produced by Prince, Sugar Walls is seen here pressed directly from the Abbey Road studios original master tapes. Perfect for serious Prince collectors and audiophiles alike.
Prince – His Majesty’s Pop Life / The Purple Mix Club — 2 x LP — Quantity: 14,000 — RSD Exclusive Release
Two records packed full of Prince remixes from the 1980s… what’s not to love?
Prince – The VERSACE Experience: PRELUDE 2 GOLD — Cassette — Quantity: 4000 — RSD Exclusive Release
Electric Fetus will have an exclusive purple version.
South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture) — 2 x LP — Quantity: 5000 — RSD Exclusive Release
The long-awaited first vinyl pressing of this Academy Award-nominated soundtrack will no doubt be near the top of many fans’ lists. Two collectible versions are being pressed; one with Cartman & Kenny holding red & orange records, and another with Kyle & Stan holding green & blue records.
Coneheads (Music from the Motion Picture) — 1 LP — Quantity: 1500 — ‘RSD First’ Release
As a kid in the ‘90s, I can’t think of another live action comedy that gave me this much joy. It’s full of grunge covers of rock classics that are worth the price. This is an early access item, meaning it will be released generally later this year; A.K.A., don’t freak out if it sells out.
House of Wax (Music from the Motion Picture) — 2 x LP — Quantity: 1500 — ‘RSD First’ Release
That iconic Paris Hilton cover art… those ‘00s bangers…
