Record Store Day: Black Friday Edition
While some folks will be getting up early on the day after Thanksgiving to try and get their hands on a super cheap big screen TV or overhyped toy, others will be heading out to get some cool vinyl deals on Record Store Day (the Black Friday edition).

I was perusing the list of records that will be available at participating stores (while supplies last, of course)...and it looks like there's something for just about every type of vinyl junkie.

Some of the things that piqued my interest:

*David Bowie: 7" vinyl picture disc of JeanGenie

*Bob Dylan: 7 " single of Duquesne Whistle (title song of his newest album)

*Grateful Dead "Live at Winterland" 5/30/71  gatefold double album set

*Wanda Jackson "Capitol Rarities" 10 " vinyl

*Buck Owens "Buck Sings Eagles" 10" vinyl

*Rolling Stones EP (reissue of the 1964 original)

*The White Stripes (3 different 7" singles on colored vinyl)

Please note: not all releases available in all stores.

More about the Black Friday releases and Record Store Day here.

Participating Madison stores include:
Exclusive Company 508 State Street

Mad City Music Exchange 600 Williamson Street

Strictly Discs 1900 Monroe Street

Sugar Shack Records 2301 Atwood Avenue

B-Side Records 436 State Street

2nd new Rolling Stones song
The Rolling Stones have released the second new song from their new greatest hits album, GRR! that comes out November 13th in North America.

It's called "One More Shot" and Neil McCormick of the London Telegraph calls it "dirty, swaggering and perfectly Stonesy."

GRR! is coming out in several different formats and editions, and both this new song  and the previously released "Doom and Gloom" will be included on all of them.

The next Hendrix?
There's a lot of buzz about a Texas bluesman named Gary Clark, Jr.  In fact, the New York Times says 'this singer-guitarist may be the next Hendrix."

I'm not sure I'm ready to go that far, but he sure has a lot of talent, which he demonstrates in the new CD, Blak and Blu. Rolling Stone says it's a mix of R & B, retro soul, psychedelia and garage rock, but says he's at his best when he's playing the blues.
 
I first got to see Clark at the Crossroads Guitar Festival in Chicago in 2010, and I thought he was great, and so did the folks at Warner Bros Records because they signed him to a contract. And since then, he's been touring non-stop, jammed with the Roots on Jimmy Fallon, and even got to play at the White House, at that "Red, White, and Blues" event at the White House that featured every one from B.B. King to Buddy Guy and Mick Jagger.
