Record Store Day “Black Friday” will offer Judas Priest, Hendrix releases

Record Store Day’s “Black Friday” event is coming up on Nov. 22, offering limited-edition vinyl releases that are for sale exclusively at select independent record stores. Sony’s Legacy Recordings label has unleashed its initial list of special releases for the special day, and among the big names are releases from Judas Priest, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble.

Judas Priest’s released is the “Painkiller” EP, a 10-inch, die-cut buzz saw disc celebrating the 25th anniversary of the group’s 1990 “Painkiller” album. Hendrix’s release is “Burning Desire,” a two-LP set with instrumental jams and demos that Hendrix recorded back in 1969 and 1970.  Vaughan and Double Trouble’s Record Store Day release is a double-disc live album called “A Legend in the Making” that follows the band’s July 1983 show at Toronto’s El Mocambo Club.  The album features a white-vinyl LP and a gray-vinyl disc.

Other artists set to release special Record Store Day “Black Friday” releases include Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, the Alan Parsons Project and the Isley Brothers.
