Record Store Day’s special Black Friday event is scheduled for Nov. 23, 2018, and an expansive list of special releases will include limited edition LPs from the Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band, Phish and more.
A 30th anniversary version of Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band’s Almost Acoustic will hit record store shelves on Black Friday. Formerly out-of-print, the 1988 record will be available on CD and 180-gram vinyl double LP for the first time ever. The release will be printed on green and black marbled vinyl and individually numbered as well as foil stamped. Only 5,000 copies of Jerry Garcia Acoustic Band’s Almost Acoustic will be available.
Originally announced as a part of the cancelled Curveball festival, 6,000 copies of Phish’s Slip Stitch & Pass vinyl will be served up on Black Friday as well. This marks the first time the 1997 live record will be pressed to vinyl.
