Record Store Day (and i'll be damned if i'm gonna drop $100 on one on Ebay), but every year, i inevitably end up digging on something unexpected. One release this time around comes from the always wonderful and dependable Numero Group, a collection of rare and obscure soul jams out of San Antonio called "Southwest Side Story: Vol. 19." The compilation consists of 14 grooving little nuggets that's probably going to have me heading south on a mission to find original old 45's. Listen to The Eptones' "No One Else but You" below, snag a digital copy of the album here, and venture out to a brick and mortar record store to find a physical copy.

Jagjaguwar. Watch the noirish video below and be on the lookout for a full-length LP later this year.

This one's kind of a no brainer for me, a 3 disc Bowie live album from 1974, lovingly mixed and mastered by Tony Visconti, featuring a whole slew of great songs from Bowie's earlier years. Yes! Yes! Yes!
Rhino Records reissues a rare power pop gem from the 1970's from John Scoggins. Finding an original copy of "Pressed for Time" will set you back a few hundred bucks, so this reissue is probably the way to go. Oh, and it's fucking great.
A mix of erotic jazz, spy music, and Japanese pop, all with a quirky Serge Gainsbourg vibe, Ike Reiko's very rare "You, Baby" LP is a wonderful oddity that needs to be on my record shelf.
An exotic and trippy Popol Vuh score to a Werner Herzog film starring crazy person Klaus Kinski? Why would i not own this?
Old Wipers records are pretty hard to find, and usually kind of expensive when you do, so what better way to close out you record buying bonanza tomorrow with a reissued copy of the legendary band's debut release?
So there you go. I could easily recommend a dozen more (The Bad Signs, Dennis Wilson, Nico and The Faction, etc.), but i wanted to keep it reasonable. Have fun tomorrow.

here, you can snag yourself a autographed copy of the record on color vinyl, an MP3 download, and a t-shirt for $40. Get on that.
