Max's Record Store Day 2017 Picks!
Max Czerwinski (aka Max 1.0) is one of two Maxes currently interning at Easy Street! He attends West Seattle High School, plays sax in the Seattle All-City Marching Band, and is well on his way to being a full blown vinyl addict! Here's what Max plans on snagging on RSD17!
Pink Floyd - Interstellar Overdrive - 12" single
A previously unreleased 14:57 minute recording from 1966, released in mono at 33 1/3 for Record Store Day.
Frank Zappa - Rollo / Portland Improvisation - 10" single
Zappa Records celebrates Record Store Day 2017 with an exclusive 10" clear vinyl reissue featuring The Petit Wazoo, a 10-piece band heavy on horn instrumentation, that Zappa toured with in late 1972.

Side 2 contains the unreleased track "Portland Improvisation," produced by FZ himself and mastered by Bernie Grundman.
Sun Ra - Janus - 12" LP
Janus is a compilation of rare material from the Sun Ra Arkestra, drawing from tapes recorded between 1963 and 1970, taken from both live and studio performances.

The album is finally making its vinyl debut with this limited edition, psychedelic swirl color vinyl for Record Store Day 2017. The tracks have been remastered, and pressed on audiophile-grade yellow/black swirl vinyl at Pallas in Germany.
