Harry Nilsson’s 1971 masterpiece Nilsson Schmilsson will be pressed on yellow and white split color vinyl for Record Store Day. This classic LP—the first of two that Nilsson recorded in England with producer Richard Perry—features the Grammy Award-winning No. 1 hit “Without You” (written and originally recorded by Badfinger and later a hit for Mariah Carey) plus the quirky Top 10 smash “Coconut” and the hard-driving “Jump Into the Fire.” This special reissue also includes a reproduction of the poster included with original copies of the album.

Dennis Wilson – Bambu (The Caribou Sessions)

Bambu (The Caribou Sessions) features highlights from the recording sessions for the planned second album by Dennis Wilson of The Beach Boys. Recorded in 1978 as the follow-up to Wilson’s classic Pacific Ocean Blue, these eclectic and ambitious recordings were left unreleased when Wilson died in 1983, and remained so until 2008. Now, the power and emotion of Wilson’s lost masterpiece can be heard on a newly designed 2LP set pressed on colored vinyl and featuring new liner notes by Ken Sharp.

On November 18, 1975, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band made their first concert appearance outside of America, at London’s Hammersmith Odeon. Born to Run had been released three months earlier, and Springsteen had famously appeared on the covers of Time and Newsweek three weeks before the Hammersmith gig—was the rest of the world finally ready for him?
