Every Record You Need to Buy: Record Store Black Friday 2016 Edition

I don't know about you, but I rarely ever go out and do the Black Friday shopping thing. Black Friday is usually reserved for lounging, drinking, then getting the house situated for Christmas. If I was going out, though? I'd be hitting up Princeton Record Exchange to see if I could cop some of these Record Store Day releases for Black Friday 2016. There aren't a lot, but what's there is choice.

Don't believe me? Just watch!

I'm not the biggest fan of D.R.A.M., or broccoli for that matter, but this vinyl release of D.R.A.M.'s Lil Yachty-featured "Broccoli" is dope. It's a 7" picture disc in the shape of broccoli, because obviously. "Cha Cha" is on the flipside, again because obviously.

Apparently the Geto Boys' classic "Mind Playing Tricks" hasn't been reissued on vinyl since 1991! This green vinyl 12" features the clean, explicit, and instrumental versions of the song, and "proceeds will benefit The JED Foundation, working to promote emotional health and suicide prevention among college and university students.

As the story goes, the full, 33-minute version of Isaac Hayes and the Bar Kays' jam "Do Your Thing" has never been released, so have at it. Word is this was mixed directly from the master tapes, and features a "bonus rhythm section instrumental and booklet detailing the history of this never-before-heard version of one of Isaac Hayes’ most famous songs by Hayes historian Bill Dahl."

The Jungle Brothers' second album, Done By Forces Of Nature, is being issued for the first time ever in 2xLP format with "the original picture sleeve artwork, it also comes with a reproduction of the original insert, with credits and lyrics."

This holiday CLASSIC is being released on a beautiful picture disc. Almost wouldn't want to play it. "Christmas In Hollis" and "Peter Piper" are on the A-side, with instrumentals for both on the flip.

If this UGK classic drops at your party and the party doesn't start rapping along, your party is trash. This colored vinyl is actually shaped like the state of Texas, as it should be, and includes the instrumental on the flipside.
