THREE BLACK FRIDAY RECORD STORE DAY SPECIALS

For Black Friday we are presenting three special Record Store Day releases: Magma, Stray Cats and Cranes.

This year's Black Friday takes place on November 26th. For this occasion, we are presenting three special Record Store Day releases:

Cranes - EP Collection Volumes 1 and 2

Cranes formed in 1985 in Portsmouth, England by siblings Alison and Jim Shaw. They were named after the many mechanical cranes around the city's docks. Cranes are best known for the childlike, high-pitched vocals of lead singer Alison.
EP Collection, Volumes 1 & 2 is a triple disc set that features the majority of the Cranes' EP releases, which were among the group's best work. Cranes rarely sounded as effective or as eerie as they did on these EPs.
The 3-LP set features 28 songs; an extensive selection of their biggest successes; “Jewel”, "Paris and Rome (Flood Mix)","Beach Mover", ”Adrift”, "Inescapable", "Lilies (Flood Mix)" a.o. This collection is available on vinyl for the first time and is a limited edition of 1500 individually numbered copies on blue (lp1), silver (lp2) and gold (lp3) coloured vinyl.

MAGMA - BBC 1974 Londres

Magma is one of the most influential bands from France. Their music defies any of the standard and convenient classifications of rock, instead they operate in a realm of their own creation.
Early in the morning of March 14th 1974, right in the middle of their second U.K tour, Magma recorded one session for the John Peel sessions, playing only two pieces, but clocking in at 57 minutes, making it one of the longest, if not thé longest, studio session ever recorded for this show; “Theusz Hamtaahk” (LP 1) &  “Köhntarkösz” (LP 2).
This session is now available on vinyl for the first time and is a limited edition of 1500 individually numbered copies on translucent red coloured vinyl.

Strat Cats - Live At Rockpalast 

The Stray Cats were born of the punk era, but it was evident from their love of pure rock & roll that rockabilly would be their driving force. Guitarist/vocalist Brian Setzer, Lee “Rocker” Drucker on standup bass and Jim “Slim Jim Phanton” McDonald took their revivalist style to England from their native Long Island and slowly set the world on fire.
Live At Rockpalast are recordings of two German liveshows. The album starts with their 1983 set from Loreley Open Air, which was recorded just before the release of their third album 'Rant N' Rave'. The second set takes place a few years before, in 1981, which takes place in Cologne. This release lets you hear how exactly the Stray Cats established their reputation as a great live band.
Live At Rockpalast is now available as a 3LP limited edition of 4000 individually numbered copies on silver coloured vinyl.

Cranes formed in 1985 in Portsmouth, England by siblings Alison and Jim Shaw. EP Collection Volumes 1 & 2 is a triple disc set that features the majority of the Cranes' EP releases, which were among the group's best work.
