Taxes, Record Stores, and Rain

If I hadn't watched Jon Stewart and the evening news, I would have naturally assumed that today was the dreaded Tax Day. But they moved the line this year and for some reason it's a "holiday" and you don't have to submit your taxes until Monday, April 18th. I can just hear the procrastinators rejoycing right at this very moment. Tomorrow, April 16th, is Record Store Day, so it's a great time to go to visit Music Millennium. Here's just a taste of what will be available: Bruce Springsteen: a two-song live 10-inch of "Gotta Get That Feeling" and "Racing in the Street ('78)." Queen: an unreleased version of their debut single, "Keep Yourself Alive," backed with "Son and Daughter" on seven-inch vinyl. Eric Clapton: Unplugged on two vinyl LPs; a seven-inch single of Derek and the Dominos' "Got to Get Better in a Little While" with newly finished vocals by Bobby Whitlock, backed with "Layla"; and a seven-inch single of "Lonely Years" backed with "Bernard Jenkins" by John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers With Eric Clapton. Jimi Hendrix: a seven-inch single on vinyl and CD of "Fire" backed with "Touch You" and an unreleased track. The Doors: a seven-inch vinyl single containing the original stereo single of "Riders on the Storm" paired with a previously unreleased mono mix and packaged in one of three picture sleeves originally used for international release. AC/DC: a seven-inch vinyl single of "Shoot to Thrill" and "War Machine" from their forthcoming concert DVD, Live at River Plate. And Ozzy Osbourne, the Record Store Day Ambassador will release a 7" vinyl single of "Flying High Again" with a live version of "I Don't Know" on the B-side, along with full-length vinyl versions of the newly expanded 30th anniversary editions of his Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman albums. So relax this weekend, knowing that you have until Monday to submit your taxes, go get yourself some great music, and wait for the sun to arrive.
