Miles DavisLive-Evil (2x 12″ Opaque Teal Colored Vinyl) 
Originally released November 17, 1971, Miles Davis’ Live-Evil turns 50 in November and this jazz-funk landmark double LP is a 100-minute workout of hard grooves and rhythmic explorations. Recorded live during his legendary 1970 stand at Washington DC’s Cellar Door and then edited by producer Teo Macero, this album features Miles joined by a formidable row of top-flight musicians: Gary Bartz, John McLaughlin, Keith Jarrett, Michael Henderson, Jack DeJohnette and Airto Moreira. The album’s striking cover by legendary illustrator Mati Klarwein is complemented by two discs pressed on exclusive limited edition opaque teal colored vinyl.

Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a regular celebration of the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the U.S. and thousands of similar stores around the world. This year, RSD has named Fred Armisen as Record Store Day Ambassador 2021.

As with last year’s pandemic-related RSD Drops, stores will be handling sales and store procedures in the way they determine to be right for themselves and their community and that may mean something different from what people are used to. RSD recommends checking in with your local record stores –join their email lists, follow them on social media– so you’re as in the loop as possible. Find your nearest participating RSD shop HERE
