It’s BLACK FRIDAY at HORIZON RECORDS, and we will be striving for safety and fun, with plenty of Record Store Day limited-edition releases and a full day (8am-8pm) to spread out shopping visits.

The 2020 version of RECORD STORE DAY BLACK FRIDAY at Horizon Records is naturally going to be a bit different than the traditional ones we’ve had in years past. Happily though, with any luck a couple of key elements will still be present as we kick off the holiday season: we WILL have a sturdy selection of the limited-edition Black Friday releases in-stock TODAY, and we’ll be open from 8am-8pm for your browsing and buying pleasure, within the limits of our health precautions such as limited capacity observance, and masks required.

And even more IMPORTANTLY, we’re are going to once again be paying it forward with  ROCK THE PANTRY project, teaming up with Loaves & Fishes and collecting canned and other non-perishable food items along with cash or credit card donations to help support the families that rely on food banks.

So, as with our other 3 RSD 2020 events, keep calm, carry on, come on by, wear your mask, help yourself to some hand sanitizer, and have a SAFE AND HAPPY holiday season with music from Horizon Records. We’ll indeed have the selections from the RSD Black Friday, and yup, we’ll be opening up at 8am, but other than that, we’re gonna enjoy a regular HORIZON RECORDS weekend, with historic stock levels of new & pre-loved LPs, CD’s and more to choose from.

We are all about the fun of collecting music and sharing it with you, all year every year. We are just busy every day being the best Horizon Records we can be, for you and for us too. We are striving to keep things as normal as possible as we roll through these crazy times.

Always remember, we love RECORD STORE DAY, but we love you more.

You can ogle the full list of RSD Black Friday releases HERE, and here are some of the titles we’re excited about.


BILL EVANS, Live At Ronnie Scott’s (2xLP)

Live at Ronnie Scott’s (1968) is the third official Resonance release of previously unissued recordings of the Bill Evans trio with Eddie Gomez and Jack DeJohnette. The recordings that comprise this release come from the personal archives of drummer Jack DeJohnette, who has had them in storage for over 50 years, and the nearly 2 hours of music have been meticulously remastered from the original tape reels. Live at Ronnie Scott’s was captured in December of 1968, six months after their legendary performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival and Resonance’s long-lost studio session Some Other Time from the Black Forest. The deluxe limited-edition 2LP set will include never-before-published original artwork by David Stone Martin on the album cover, plus an extensive booklet with rare photos, essay by the esteemed British writer Brian Priestly, a conversation between Chick Corea and Jack DeJohnette, interview with Eddie Gomez, and more.


AIMEE MANN, Bachelor No. 2 (20th Anniversary Edition) (2xLP)
The 20th anniversary of Aimee Mann’s groundbreaking album in a deluxe double LP package with liner notes from Aimee Mann and five additional tracks: four songs written for Bachelor No. 2 that ended up on the Magnolia Soundtrack and a re-recorded version of “Wise Up”. Completely remastered and pressed on colored double vinyl, this is the first time SuperEgo has released this album on vinyl.


WILLIE NELSON, Live At Austin City Limits 1976 (LP)

Willie Nelson has appeared on Austin City Limits more than any other artist, performing on the pilot and seventeen subsequent episodes of the Texas Public Television institution that debuted in 1976 and is still going strong as the longest running music series in American television history. This performance was captured in 1976 and aired as the premiere episode of the second season the following year. It found Willie and The Family performing his classic album Red Headed Stranger front to back in an amazing performance and this RSD Black Friday edition marks its first audio release.


SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS
, Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Rendition Was In) (LP)
Throughout their career, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings remained in high demand both publicly and privately to recreate and often re-imagine songs by other artists. More often than not, these covers were recorded by request, commissioned for placement in movies, television programs, tribute albums, or for samples. This album compiles some of their most popular and some never-before-heard renditions Though the band mostly built their career on a prolific catalog of originals, these forays into other artists’ compositions lay bare their gift for arrangement and the unmatched studio prowess that earned them their reputation as The Baddest Band in the Land.

JAHARI MASSAMBA UNIT, Pardon My French (colored vinyl LP)
The Jahari Massamba Unit features Madlib on all instrumentation with the exception of drums, which are laid down by Karriem Riggins. Like Madlib, Riggins is well-versed in both the worlds of Jazz and Hip Hop. Musically, Madlib’s label says “we would call the project Spiritual Jazz, but jazz great Phil Ranelin told us to call it Black Classical Music, so that’s what we’re going with.” This is an album put together by students of jazz in its myriad and historic corms who are also proponents of jazz’s future. The resulting recording reflects a lifetime of record collecting, musical study, woodshedding, and a reverential respect for one another’s craft. Regardless of categorization this is an exciting an all new entry in Madlib’s Yesterdays New Quintet canon of difficult-to-categorize music.


DRIVE-BY TRUCKERS, Plan 9 Records July 13, 2006 (140g 3xLP)
On July 13, 2006 the Drive-By Truckers set up shop at Plan 9 Records in Richmond, VA. It was the 25th Anniversary of the store. The band performed to a packed house and played a blistering set of fan-favorites featuring the songs, “18 Wheels of Love”, “Let There Be Rock”, “Goddamn Lonely Love” and “Daddy’s Cup.” The performance was also set up to benefit the Bryan and Kathryn Harvey Family Memorial Endowment. The foundation provides, among other things, music scholarships in the Richmond area. Lead vocalist and songwriter, Patterson Hood ended up writing the song “Two Daughters and A Beautiful Wife” about Bryan Harvey and his family.


HERBIE HANCOCK TRIO, The Herbie Hancock Trio (LP)
This 1977 studio recording finds Herbie Hancock embracing his jazz roots. The straightforward trio setting puts Hancock’s piano front and center. Backed by Ron Carter on bass and Tony Williams behind the drums, the recording features Hancock originals as well as the Trio’s take on Miles Davis’ “Milestones.”


JAMES MCMURTRY, Childish Things (LP)
Author Stephen King described Ft. Worth native James McMurtry as “the truest, fiercest songwriter of his generation” in Entertainment Weekly. The son of acclaimed author Larry McMurtry (Lonesome Dove, Terms of Endearment), James grew up on a steady diet of Johnny Cash and Roy Acuff records. 2005’s Childish Things garnered some of the highest critical praise of McMurtry’s career and spent six weeks at number one on R&R’s Americana Music Radio Chart in 2005 and 2006. In September 2006, Childish Things and “We Can’t Make It Here” won the Americana Music Awards for album and song of the year, respectively. This is the first time Childish Things will be available on vinyl.

LOU REED:
Magic & Loss (2xLP 180g)
Live At Alice Tully Hall – January 27, 1973 – 2nd Show (2xLP)
Black Friday brings us two fantastic glimpses of the late, great Lou Reed, one as a mature songwriter pondering mortality, and the other as a reborn glam-rock god reveling in his first realy taste of fame. Magic & Loss is pressed as a double LP, featuring three sides of vinyl and an etching, exclusive released for RSD Black Friday 2020. Live At Alice Tully Hall – January 27, 1973 – 2nd Show captures Lou Reed’s New York City live debut as a solo artist, at the Lincoln Center venue during his Transformer tour. He was backed by The Tots, a tight, funky, twin-guitar combo whose gritty bar-band approach offered an energized accompaniment to Reed’s material, whether that was the Velvets (“Heroin,” “Sweet Jane”) or songs from his first two solo albums, Walk On The Wild Side and Vicious. Mixed from the original multi-track tapes by Matt Ross-Spring, these fourteen live tracks are available for the first time, released first on RSD Black Friday on two LPs pressed on burgundy vinyl and packaged with a new essay by Ed McCormack, rare pictures and memorabilia.

JERRY GARCIA BAND, GarciaLive Volume Two: August 5th, 1990 Greek Theatre (4xLP)
