Edan

While Edan’s critically acclaimed debut, Primitive Plus, was a celebration of hip-hop’s golden age and a true throwback, his sophomore album, Beauty And The Beat, is a vast musical collage that contains many different influences; Hip-hop, rock, pop, dusty breaks, hazy loops, luxurious off-kilter samples and curveball tempo changes that are all crafted into one cohesive piece of art.
In 2015, FACT placed it at number 30 on the "100 Best Indie Hip-Hop Records of All Time" list. In 2013 NME placed it at number 392 on the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time" list.

“A goofy psychedelic gem. It’s like ‘The Grey Album’ in technicolour” - Vice

“Edan has a seemingly bottomless musical curiosity… he unites old school hip-hop’s aesthetics with a previous generation’s sense of grooviness” - The Washington Post

“Impossibly ambitious, as psychedelic as Mythos, as unrelenting as the Ultramagnetic MCs, Edan is a master in possession of his own style. One of the best and most original records to come out this decade” - XLR8R

“A full tab of b-boy psychedelia… a creative quantum leap forward” - XXL

“With an awe-inspiring imagination in tow, Edan drops his own magical mystery tour” - URB

“Nothing is fucking with Edan right now. ‘Beauty and the Beat’ is the best hip-hop I’ve heard in a long time” - Mass Appeal

This is a legendary Fu set, iand includes classics “Squash That Fly,” “Hell On Wheels,” “Boogie Van” and “King Of The Road.”

"Playing Roadburn back in 2003 was a blast!”, Scott Hill, lead vocals/guitar of Fu Manchu says. “It was the year before we put out Start The Machine and we played a couple of songs from it live for the first time on that tour. One of the songs that’s on this live record, “I Wanna Be,” is a different arrangement than what ended up on the final studio release. We're stoked that the show was recorded and that people will get to hear it. Always a good time playing at Roadburn!"

The Gun Club

The Gun Club were a highly influential post-punk/ blues band from Los Angeles, CA that existed from 1979 to 1996. Created and led by talented maverick singer songwriter-guitarist Jeffrey Lee Pierce, they merged the contemporary genre of punk rock with the more traditional genres of rockabilly and country music, alongside X, the Flesh Eaters and the Blasters. The Gun Club has been called a "tribal psychobilly blues" band and initiators of the U.S. wave of Cowpunk.

Sex Beat 81 is a live album, recorded in 1981 and eventually released in 1984. It’s not been reissued on vinyl until now, and comes out on RSD Black Friday on translucent yellow vinyl, with reproductions of the original labels, and an OBI spine.

Ian & Sylvia Tyson

Regarded as pioneers of the folk & Americana genre, Ian & Sylvia first came to prominence in the early ‘60s Greenwich Village and Yorkville folk scenes, performing alongside Bob Dylan (they were also managed by Albert Grossman), Joni Mitchell, and Gordon Lightfoot (who they made famous by being the first to record “Early Morning Rain”) and headlining at the now-famous 1963 Newport Folk Festival. Ian's composition "Four Strong Winds" is now considered a standard and a CBC poll in 2005 named it the "most essential" piece of Canadian music. Ian & Sylvia were one of the first artists to explore an electric Country Rock sound, recording with both New York and Nashville musicians.
In early 2019 Sylvia discovered a box of old 1/4" analog tapes in her attic that were professionally recorded in the early 1970s in front of a live studio audience. More than twenty previously unreleased recordings included many of Ian & Sylvia's classics, but also enough recordings that had never been included on any Ian & Sylvia album to make up a full album, presented here as a double vinyl release for RSD Black Friday.

LP1:
1 “Keep On The Sunny Side” 2 “Darcy Farrow” 3 “Will The Circle Be Unbroken” 4 “When First Unto This Country” 5 “Come All You Fair and Tender Ladies” 6 “Four Rode By” 7 “Nancy Whiskey” 8 “Four Strong Winds” 9 “Little Beggarman” 10 “The French Song” 11 “Summer Wages” 12 “Crazy Arms” 13 “I'll Fly Away”

LP2:
1 “After The Fire Is Gone” 2 “Heartaches By The Number” 3 “Sweet Dreams” 4 “Come On In My Kitchen” 5 “Jimmie's Texas Blues” 6 “How Long” 7 “The Last Thing On My Mind” 8 “That's The Way Love Goes” 9 “Crying Time” 10 “Starting All Over Again” 11 “Together Again” 12 “Silver Threads and Golden Needles” 13 “The Goodnight Loving Trail”
