Revue April 2017 cover - The Food Issue

 

Letter from the Editor 

 

Music lovers probably already have April 22 penciled into their calendars. 

And for good reason: It’s the tenth-annual Record Store Day, a celebration of independent music stores around the country and the day when audiophiles can comb through dozens of newly released, rare or limited-run goodies in search of their next favorite vinyl. 

The full list of releases planned for this year is posted at recordstoreday.com, and it’s chock full of interesting music from mainstream and obscure artists alike, everyone from Prince and David Bowie to Thelonious Monk and Jaco Pastorius. 

I’m hoping to find copies of Alice in Chains’ Get Born, a double seven-inch single featuring some of the last recordings the band made with the late Layne Staley, and Born Again by the late Notorious B.I.G. 

(Both of the albums I want to score have the word “born” in their titles and feature dead singers. Go figure.)

If nothing else, Record Store Day is as good excuse as any to shop locally, look through the stacks and try to feed my growing LP collection. As a relative latecomer to rediscovering vinyl, I’m still in the mode of filling in gaps in the discographies of some of my favorite artists, in particular for New Wave Of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) giants like Diamond Head, Tygers of Pan Tang and Tank. 

Happy wax hunting to all, and if you happen to find a good copy of Lightning to the Nations, you’ll have to let me know its whereabouts.

 

Cheers,

Joe Boomgaard, Editor
