Jimi Hendrix, Tom Petty and More Classic Rockers Highlight Record Store Day 2016



Dozens of classic-rock releases are on tap this year for Record Store Day next month, including albums, EPs and singles by Tom Petty, Jimi Hendrix, Cheap Trick and David Bowie.

The full list of records available at the day-long event on April 16 was revealed today, and while the releases span genres (country, pop and hip-hop are all represented) and formats (10″ EPs, 12″ picture discs), there’s plenty of classic-rock albums spread throughout the three main categories: exclusives, limited releases and firsts.

Among the releases are Hendrix’s 1969 Smash Hits compilation, featuring alternate cover art; a single featuring two brand-new songs by Mudcrutch, Petty’s side band, which will release a new LP later this year; a complete version of Cheap Trick’s famous Budokan concert; and three separate Bowie items, including I Dig Everything – The Pye Years 1966, which includes some of his earliest recordings.

Other classic-rock faves like the Doors (Live at the Aquarius: The First Performance ), Fleetwood Mac, ([Alternative] Tusk), Creedence Clearwater Revival (1969 Box Set) and Metallica, whose Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica! – Live at Le Bataclan. Paris, France – June 11th, 2003 was previously announced. The metal giants are also Record Store Day’s official ambassadors this year.

You can see a list of the classic-rock releases that will be available at this year’s Record Store Day below.
