The Best Vinyl Records to Buy This Black Friday

The Best Vinyl Records to Buy This Black Friday

November 20, 2019 | Music

With Thanksgiving coming soon, most people have food, family, and friends on the brain. But the fun doesn’t stop when the turkey and mashed potatoes run out. Fighting through a food coma the day after the holiday may be worth it for deals on all your favorite goods. Black Friday may be hectic, but this year it will also give vinyl lovers a chance to load up on unique records for their collections.

This Black Friday, November 29, will be a Record Store Day event, with exclusive releases and special promotions bringing people from all sides of music culture together.

Here are 10 vinyl (and one plastic) records to look out for this Black Friday:

1. Beck - "Uneventful Days" (3-inch record)

While not technically a vinyl record, Record Store Day and Crosley are releasing 2,500 copies of Beck's new single from his 14th studio album, HYPERSPACE.  This is a 3" record, so you'll need a Crosley RSD3 Mini Turntable to play this bad boy.      

2.  Lizzo: “Coconut Oil” 

Lizzo’s debut, a six-song EP originally released in 2016, will be available on vinyl on a white pressing with a coconut-scented insert. 

3.  Paul McCartney: “Home Tonight / In A Hurry”

The legend is dropping two new tracks on Record Store Day, and is also releasing an exclusive double A-side 7" picture disc single that will include exclusively created artwork and a lyrical insert.

4.  Kings of Leon: “Day Old Belgian Blues”

The rock band is giving its 2004 EP a vinyl debut. The EP, limited to 3,000 pressings, features six live recordings of crowd favorites.

5.  Cardi B: “Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 1” 

The hip-hop star’s musical career began with this 13-track mixtape. For Record Store Day it will be available on vinyl in certain stores and website catalogs. 

6.  The National: “Juicy Sonic Magic”

The indie rock band will release a live recording of its shows at the Greek Theatre in Berkeley, California. 

7.  U2: “Three” 

U2 is launching a vinyl reissue in honor of the 40th anniversary of the EP, which was recorded in Dublin. It will include remastered tracks as well as new artwork. 
8.  Madonna “I Rise”

“I Rise” will be pressed on 12" vinyl, and in addition to the title track will include remixes of additional tracks. 

9.  Miles Davis: “Early Minor: Rare Miles From The Complete In A Silent Way Sessions” and “Miles in Tokyo” 

Two Miles records will have their vinyl debuts this Black Friday. 3,500 copies of “Early Minor” will be produced, along with 2,200 of “Miles in Tokyo.”

10.  The Tuxedo: “Get The Money”

Neo-soul disco-funk band Tuxedo is releasing an exclusive 7" that will include previously unreleased tracks featuring CeeLo Green and Tony! Toni! Toné! 

11.  Pearl Jam: “MTV Unplugged” 

Back in 1992, the rock band recorded an iconic, stripped-back set on “MTV Unplugged.” On Black Friday, the set will be available on vinyl for the first time.

Make sure you have all the equipment you need to spin your new records and have the best listening experience possible. Of course, Crosley is here to help!

Happy shopping!
