Record Store Day's second RSD Drops event is, of course, a highlight – but the list of July 2021 new music releases doesn't begin or end there.

David Crosby's For Free features a collaboration with Michael McDonald. Jackson Browne will release his first new album in six years. Dee Snider is back with his fifth solo project, too.

Expanded reissues are on the way from the Beach Boys (the five-CD Feel Flows focusing on Sunflower and Surf's Up sessions from 1969-71), Chicago (their 1971 live album, Chicago at Carnegie Hall) and Stone Temple Pilots (a 25th-anniversary edition of 1996's Tiny Music ... Songs From the Vatican Gift Shop). Another looks back at Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous soundtrack.

The month's live sets include projects from Tedeschi Trucks Band, whose Layla Revisited (Live at LOCKN') features Phish frontman Trey Anastasio; Blondie, with a return to their 2019 debut performance in Cuba; and surviving members of the Allman Brothers Band, who will commemorate the group's 50th anniversary with a new concert release.
