March 13, 2012 – Vanguard Records is proud to announce the reissue of five classic recordings available exclusively on Record Store Day – April 21, 2012.
Back in June of 2011 Vanguard and Record Store Day asked fans to vote on www.recordstoreday.com for the five Vanguard titles to be reissued on Record Store Day 2012. Fans voted, and below are the five titles selected. These 12” vinyl LPs – newly re-mastered from the original tapes - will be limited in quantity and available EXCLUSIVELY at participating independently owned record stores on April 21, 2012. And if the past two years are any indication, these LPs will be gone in hours, if not minutes! So mark your calendars – April 21, 2012 – Record Store Day!
Larry Coryell – Spaces - This iconic jazz-fusion album features Coryell alongside John McLaughlin, Billy Cobham, Miroslav Vitous, and Chick Corea.
Buddy Guy – This is Buddy Guy - This classic live blues album features Guy at the height of his powers, tearing through a blistering and virtuosic set.
Joan Baez – Farewell Angelina – This 1965 album features Bob Dylan tunes as well as songs by Donovan and Woody Guthrie.
Mississippi John Hurt – Last Sessions – Recorded just months before Hurt’s death, this album captures the blues icon in fine, inspiring form.
Skip James – Devil Got My Woman – This 1968 release holds a dozen semi-autobiographical or entirely personalized traditional songs that attest to James’ almost unparalleled artistry.
