Record Store Day Drops 2021 - July
Born Innocent [RSD Drops 2021]
The hard-hitting, melodic heavy metal band Alcatrazz celebrate RSD Drops 2021 with the release of a colored double vinyl edition of their latest studio offering, Born Innocent. The 13-track opus, having previously only been available on CD and digital formats and never on vinyl will be a must-have collectible for anyone who considers themselves a fan of rock (pun intended!)
Their first studio venture since 1986’s Dangerous Game. Alongside the unique vocal prowess and range of star frontman and founding member Graham Bonnet, Born Innocent also features fellow founding members Jimmy Waldo and Gary Shea. And from the classic album art, featuring the mighty rock itself, Born Innocent is a journey into the sort of heavy, melodic and supremely articulated hard rock that is a cornerstone of the likes of Rainbow and the Michael Schenker Group, territory Alcatrazz successfully strode in the ‘80s before going on hiatus.
Born Innocent was produced by Jimmy Waldo with Giles Lavery and mixed and mastered by Andy Haller and features many former stars from Graham's long career. Guest appearances include Chris Impellitteri, who wrote the music and played all guitars on the arpeggio-powered “Born Innocent”, with Bonnet’s vocals soaring to old-school heights, as did Bob Kulick for the majestic “I Am The King”. Virtuoso Japanese guitar maestro Nozomu Wakai similarly wrote and played guitars on the double-kick steel-plated Irish warrior ode “Finn McCool”, while the six-string legend that is Steve Vai wrote “Dirty Like The City”, with Bonnet once again powerfully hitting notes that are beyond the business of most humans.
As fans will immediately hear, Alcatrazz are back doing what only they can do with Born Innocent, delivering quality hard rock with genuine storyteller lyrics, virtuoso performances and an added layer of modern ‘heavy’ that underscores the melodic excellence. Don’t miss out on this piece of rock history.

Raleighwood [RSD Drops 2021]
Vinyl: $13.98 Buy
Raleigh NC’s The Backsliders were formed in 1992 by Steve Howell and Chip Robinson, rock ‘n’ roll dudes playing country-tinged tunes with just the right amount of Don’t Give A Damn attitude. The original line-up of Chip Robinson (lead vocal, guitar, electric 12-string guitar), Steve Howell (harmony vocal, lead guitar), Danny Kurtz (bass), Jeff “JD” Dennis (drums), came back together in 2012 with new bandmate Greg Rice (keyboards). With engineer John Plymale of Overdub Lane at the board, they wasted no time in recording the RALEIGHWOOD (EP), featuring their hardcore honky-tonk and unmistakable swagger. Steve Howell describes the writing of these songs: “Headlights” was written in the spirit of late ‘60s/early ‘70s California Country Rock with peyote and red wine as the chief inspirations. “You Can Be My Baby Now” is the haze of a long weekend listening to Big Star and Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers. “Nightfalls” was written after being haunted by a ghost that never told me her name. Danny and JD kicked it up into the southern soul stratosphere. “Forever and Ever” is the result of Neil Young and Crazy Horse running thick through my teenage veins. I can still taste it! “Twang”, well... nothing says attitude better than a twangy Gretsch guitar right between the eyes.” The attitude of the original lineup is still there, though they may not be the same band that burned up the road all those years before, they still have something to say, something to prove, and something to be.
Proceeds from this release, and three others in this series support The Shalom Project (an organization that supports NC families in need).
This is a regional release and though it’s available to all RSD-participating stores, it will primarily be available at stores in North Carolina.
Side 1: “Headlights”, “You Can Be My Baby”
Side 2: “Night Falls”, “Forever And Ever”, “Twang”

Perennial indie rockers Born Ruffians return with Squeeze, their seventh album. Squeeze (a companion piece to their previous album, Juice) finds the trio expanding their sound into more psychedelic territory, especially apparent on tracks like "Sinking Ships" and "Death Bed."

2 x LP: $12.00 Buy
Soundtrack to the Emmy award-winning HBO TV drama starring Mark Ruffalo. Comprises original score by Harold Budd alongside curated archive selections used in the show. At the time the show originally aired in summer 2020, this was the first new music to be heard from Budd in over six years. Tragically it also ended up being some of the last, as he passed away in December at the age of 84. The Guardian wrote “Harold Budd's sublime music was a gateway to a brighter world. It can't be contained with the term 'ambient', it is a guide to dreamworlds and a haven in tough times. His albums are a gateway to a beyond and an invitation to exist, however briefly, above yourself”. Pressed on clear vinyl.

Del Casher (Colv) (Rex)
Italian Stallion / O.S.T. (Rsd) [Colored Vinyl] [Record Store Day] [RSD Drops 2021]
Vinyl: $11.00 Buy
Del Casher may not be a household name, but you’ve undoubtedly heard his music. He was a member of the famous Wrecking Crew, played on Lawrence Welk, recorded Frank Zappa’s first demo, and even backed Elvis Presley on film. His inventions include the Wah-Wah pedal and the Ecco-Fonic, influencing the development of electric guitar playing. In 1978, Casher was impressed by Bill Conti's top selling score for Rocky, and set out to make an album with original compositions of disco and jazz/funk inspired by the film. With a series of tunes written, he gathered some of the top studio players in Hollywood including Billy Preston, Stan Worth, and members of Johnny Carson's Tonight Show band. The working title for this album in the making was called “Music Inspired By Rocky And Other Compositions”. A film company who had acquired the rights to Sylvester Stallone's 1970 debut "The Party At Kitty And Stud's" heard the music and immediately recognized it as the perfect fit for their rebranded “Italian Stallion” film release. Though the score was never released outside of the film, it generated lots of interest in the early 2000’s when the internet became a widespread phenomenon, and fans began recording the audio off of the film themselves. The soundtrack for Italian Stallion stands on its own as a musical masterpiece. Over 40 years later, with the help of ORG Music, Del Casher dug up his original master tapes and assembled a record’s worth of material for the soundtrack’s first ever release. Italian Stallion will make its long overdue debut with a vinyl pressing, exclusively for RSD 2021.

Bug [RSD Drops 2021]
2 x LP: $9.00 Buy
If Dave Davies did nothing more than create the slash-and-burn power chords of the Kinks' "You Really Got Me" he'd earn a place in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. As it is, the younger Davies brother has accomplished much more. His first studio album in over 20 years finds Ray's frequently overshadowed sibling reviving that rather charming '70s device, the concept album--the plot here revolving around extraterrestrial visitation and brain implantation. Davies brings the idea of benign aliens a little closer in a collection that recalls some of the best trends of the '60s and '70s. He uses a rock template that harkens back to post-Tommy Who ("The Lie"), Mott the Hoople ("Whose Fooling Who"), and Deep Purple ("It Ain't Over 'Till It's Done"), sounding rather anachronistic as a result. The songs are engaging and show Davies to be a writer of considerable skill and wit, but they're somewhat stuck in the way-back machine.
1. Who's Foolin' Who 2. It Ain't over, 'Till Its Done! 3. The Lie! 4. Let Me Be 5. Displaced Person 6. Rock You, Rock Me 7. Flowers in the Rain 8. Fortis Green 9. Why?!! 10. True Phenomenon 11. Bug 12. De-Bug 13. Life After Life (Transformation)

The Windows of the World [RSD Drops 2021]
Bobbie’s journey from country singer-songwriter to blue eyed soul diva stopped off at a hitherto unknown destination along the way. Before she arrived at Muscle Shoals to work her magic with the late great Rick Hall, Bobbie cut a laid back album of classic and contemporary jazz tunes that was abandoned before it had chance to see the light of day. This was a shame, as Bobbie proves herself as adept in this genre as in any other. This self-produced collection first saw the light of day on the Bobbie Gentry boxset, but this lost album deserves to have its own separate release and what better format than vinyl? The set exudes a sophisticated and intimate late-night vibe mostly featuring Bobbie alone with her guitar accompanied by a bass player; occasionally there is a whisper of strings from Jimmie Haskell who famously composed the cello and violin arrangement on Ode to Billie Joe. Gentry fans will find much to love in Bobbie’s short lived but brilliant turn as a jazz singer. The original 8 tracks to be supplemented by the ‘I Didn’t Know’ and ‘Hushabye Mountain’ demos recorded around the same time, this LP also features the previously unreleased Hushabye Mountain [alternate version].
God Bless The Child
Since I Fell For You
Here’s That Rainy Day

This new issue of the record will also include an expanded layout with new liner notes from Doc Coyle, and rare photos and memorabilia. The original 2001 release of Determination”was the band's first release through Century Media Records, but M-Theory Audio's new issue will mark the album's first-ever vinyl release, and will also include the bonus track, “Mind Eraser”.
