For music fans, Black Friday is also Record Store Day and as we promised, there are still more surprises to come.
As improbable as it seems, we haven't heard the last of Jimi Hendrix's late 60s sessions. Check out Burning Desire,
a new 2-LP set recorded at the Record Plant in New York City, that covers jam sessions with Billy Cox on bass and Buddy Miles on drums that took place just before and after Hendrix debuted his Band of Gypsies trio at the Fillmore East. Included are early takes of "Izabella" and several long blues jams, all mixed by Eddie Kramer from the original analog tapes.
There are also some great 7" singles and 10" EPs by some of our favorite Epiphone legends including The Kinks, Todd Snider
, Joan Jett, and the original LP soundtrack to Family Way
from 1967 by Sir Paul McCartney. Line up early on Friday at your favorite local record store and watch Epi fan Dave Grohl's heartfelt ode-to-plastic from the RSD earlier this spring.
