It’s Vinyl Tuesday! Record Exchange customers receive up to $5 in used vinyl* with every $25 in new vinyl purchased and have access to early and exclusive releases. This week’s releases:
JOHNNY CASH – A Concert Behind The Prison Walls
A Concert: Behind the Prison Walls features Cash performing for inmates inside the Tennessee State Penitentiary in Nashville. Recorded in 1976, this is one of only two prison concerts Cash ever shot for broadcast and features legendary performers Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt and Roy Clark performing their greatest hits. The concert aired on national television, and this vinyl edition features rare, live performances of mega hits Folsom Prison Blues, Sunday Morning Coming Down, Boy Named Sue, Love Has No Pride, and more.
TASTE – What’s Going On: Taste Live at the Isle of Wight
Originally formed in Cork, Ireland, in 1966 by Rory Gallagher, Taste had a brief but influential career, releasing two studio albums in 1969 and 1970 and disbanding shortly after their legendary appearance at the 1970 Isle Of Wight Festival, which is the centerpiece of this film. The core of “What’s Going On” is the band’s performance at the festival on August 28th but it is encapsulated by a documentary on the history and importance of Taste and setting the scene for their Isle Of Wight Festival appearance. This features contributions from Rory Gallagher’s brother Donal along with Brian May (Queen), The Edge (U2), Bob Geldof and renowned guitarist Larry Coryell. Rory Gallagher would go on to enjoy an acclaimed and highly successful solo career and this electrifying show by Taste is an early example of Rory’s justified reputation as the ultimate live performer.
ABOUT VINYL TUESDAY
With the move to a global Friday street date in July, Vinyl Tuesday was established to celebrate music in physical form and give record store customers access to early and exclusive releases. For artists, it’s a chance to showcase special releases on a special day and not get lost on the increasingly crowded Friday/weekend.
* Must be redeemed at time of purchase. Offer valid during regular business hours (10am-9pm) on Tuesdays only. The Record Exchange will not issue store credit for any unused portion of the Vinyl Tuesday used vinyl bonus.
