Deluxe edition of their album 20/20 Vision featuring new artwork and 5 new songs. Anti-Flag is a political punk band, which is obvious from their name alone. But over the course of 12 albums across more than 25 years together, they’ve rarely set their sights on singular individuals in songs. Unlike their punk predecessors in the 80s, who made targets of Reagan and his cronies, Anti-Flag has always opted not to date their work with current references, instead focusing on fighting ongoing oppression and dismantling deeply rooted systems of injustice. But on their new album, 20/20 Vision, the band drew a big, fat line in the sand.
Pressed on translucent Red vinyl.

Perhaps because bassist Jennifer Finch left the band during the recording sessions, 1996's The Beauty Process--Triple Platinum has never quite gotten its due, but Donita Sparks counts it as her favorite L7 album. It's simultaneously the heaviest record they ever released, and the most varied, with delicate songs like "Me, Myself, and I" and "Moonshine" contrasting with the metal-verging-on-industrial mayhem of "Drama." Twenty-five years is a long time to wait for an L7 album to come out on vinyl: for its overdue debut, Real Gone Music is pressing up 3000 copies for Record Store Day on (what else?) Platinum vinyl and putting 'em inside a jacket with printed inner sleeve. Rawk on!
Side One: 1. The Beauty Process 2. Drama 3. Off the Wagon 4. I Need 5. Moonshine 6. Bitter Wine 7. The Masses Are Asses
Side Two: 1. Bad Things 2. Must Have More 3. Non-Existent Patricia 4. Me, Myself & I 5. Lorenza, Giada, Alessandra
Created in 2010 by Marlon Magnée and Sacha Got, two young men from Biarritz in France, La Femme is a very unique band. Between psychedelia, surf rock, electronica, krautrock and even disco they have managed to create their own very recognizable sound and have become one of the most influential French indie bands of the century. After two Gold records in France, several sold-out US tours and glowing support from the likes of The New Yorker, KCRW, NPR, Flaunt, The Guardian, Q, Uncut, Paste and many more, La Femme will be releasing their third album in the Spring. And for RSD Drops, they would like to please their fans by releasing two unreleased tracks on vinyl.

Contains previously unissued live recordings of unsung tenor saxophone hero Harold Land from The Penthouse in Seattle from 1962, 1964 and 1965 with stellar musicians including Hampton Hawes, Carmell Jones, Buddy Montgomery and Philly Joe Jones. Released in partnership with the Harold Land Estate, the deluxe limited edition, hand-numbered, 180g double LP set is mastered by Kevin Gray of Cohearent Audio. The remastered audio was captured from direct transfers of the original Penthouse's tape reels. Westward Bound! includes an extensive booklet with rare photos; essays by jazz historian Michael Cuscuna, co-producers Zev Feldman and Cory Weeds, and pianist Eric Reed; plus interviews with tenor saxophone giant Joe Lovano and the legendary saxophonist Sonny Rollins.
Land developed his hard bop playing with the Max Roach/Clifford Brown band into a personal, modern style; often rivalling Clifford Brown's instrumental ability with his own inventive and whimsical solos. Born in Houston and grew up in San Diego he started playing at the age of 16. He made his first recording as the leader of the Harold Land All-Stars for Savoy Records in 1949. In 1954 he joined the Clifford Brown/Max Roach Quintet, with whom he was at the forefront of the hard-bop/bebop movement. He moved to Los Angeles in 1955 and played with Curtis Counce, led his own groups, and co-led groups with Bobby Hutcherson, Blue Mitchell, and Red Mitchell. From the '70s onwards his style showed the influence of John Coltrane. In the early '80s through to the early '90s he worked regularly with the Timeless All Stars; a group sponsored by Timeless jazz records. The group consisted of Land on tenor, Cedar Walton on piano, Buster Williams on bass, Billy Higgins on drums, Curtis Fuller on trombone and Bobby Hutcherson on vibes.
Over his career he was a sideman on albums from Roy Ayers, Bill Evans, Ella Fitzgerald, Freddie Hubbard, Thelonious Monk, Wes Montgomery, Donald Byrd, Dinah Washington and countless others.

Side B: 3. Happily Dancing/Deep Harmonies Falling 4. My Romance

Originally released in 2003, Here Comes That Weird Chill (Methamphetamine Blues, Extras & Oddities) was a precursor to Mark's stunning album Bubblegum.

Heavy Sun, the soulful, debut from Daniel Lanois and his invigorating new all-star band. Recorded in Los Angeles and Toronto, the album fuses classic gospel and modern electronics, mixing gritty, human textures with crisp, digital accents and lush, swirling atmospherics to create a sound that's at once warmly familiar and boldly unexpected. The arrangements here are spacious and dreamy, anchored by rich, righteous organ topped with airy falsetto and mesmerizing four-part harmony, and the writing is buoyant and soulful to match, tapping into the shared uncertainty of the human condition to offer hope, comfort, and connection at a time when all three run in desperately short supply. For RSD Drops this year comes the vinyl debut of this critically acclaimed album. Pressed on Translucent Ruby inside Opaque Orchid colored vinyl, and limited to a worldwide run of 4000. Includes a download card.
The debut LP from The Lemonheads, re-issued and pressed on yellow vinyl.

The second and last album from Richard Butler's post-Psychedelic Furs project arguably was as good as anything his first band put out…this 1997 release sported the Furs' arty blend of post-punk and glam embroidered with some well-placed electronica and alternative touches. Best of all--it rocks! And Butler's distinctive vocals have never sounded better in all their snarling tenderness. Never before on LP, our reissue comes in a jacket with printed inner sleeve containing white with black swirl vinyl that matches the album cover.

Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor Series is a limited edition four LP set featuring Fiasco’s debut studio album Food & Liquor and follow up Food and Liquor II together on vinyl for the first time, exclusively for RSD Drops 2021.
Food & Liquor – which celebrates its 15th anniversary this year – features production from Kanye West, The Neptunes (Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo), Mike Shinoda & Jay-Z amongst others. It was nominated for four Grammy Awards, and includes Grammy Award winning track “Daydreaming” (Feat. Jill Scott).
Food & Liquor II: The Great American Rap Album Pt. 1 – which will be pressed on vinyl for the first time ever exclusively for this package – features production from The Audibles and 1500 or Nothin' amongst others. It went on to chart at number 5 in the US Billboard 200 and was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Rap Album.
The albums are pressed on 140g vinyl, in an assortment of colors and housed in a slipcase. Strictly Limited and numbered to 7000 copies worldwide.
The project was born out of Lupe pulling a beat off of Twitter, posted by Kaelin Ellis with the caption, "get this to Lupe". Lupe recorded a rap over the beat and posted the new recording back on Twitter within an hour of Kaelin posting the instrumental. The two conversed over social media and agreed to work on more music, which led to the HOUSE EP being turned around within 3-4 weeks while quarantined during the Covid pandemic. The project features narration from longtime friend of Lupe and international fashion designer and entrepreneur, Virgil Abloh (Louis Vuitton, Off White). The title of the EP is HOUSE because they recorded the entire project while in the house (due to Covid). Artwork for the EP is an original painting of Philip Johnson's iconic Glass House, and liner notes were written by the painter's son who is a good friend of Lupe’s. Previously available on cassette.
