For lovers of vinyl, it can feel like torture waiting for Record Store Day in the spring. Luckily, Record Store Day celebrates on Black Friday just like the rest of the retail world, and this Black Friday there are some cool releases. One such album is Dawes' Stripped Down at Grimey's, which was recorded just before their tour with Bob Dylan this past summer.
“This is a recording of the performance that turned me into a devoted Dawes fan,” says Grimey’s co-owner Doyle Davis. “For what it’s worth, I made a point to catch two more Dawes shows within four months of their Grimey’s performance. That’s how fans are made.”
The cool thing about Record Store Day, beyond the obvious support it offers for local record stores, is that the vinyl released is often limited edition or colored. Stripped Down at Grimey's will be offered on a limited edition 12" orange vinyl, so any Dawes fan should make a dash before they're all sold out.
Other Black Friday Record Store Day releases include Paul Simon, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Jack Johnson, Lana Del Rey, The Clash, Tegan & Sara, and many more. The full list can be found on Record Store Day's website.
