    Happy Independence Week

    We hope everyone had a great 4th! Our fireworks went off the day before with the release of Jellyfish, Live At Bogart’s, on CD and laser-etched limited-edition double LP on translucent-blue vinyl (wow!). The blue vinyl first pressing is likely to go fast, so track one down soon if you want one for your collection. Up next, on Tuesday, July 17, is the brilliant Sam Phillips album, Martinis & Bikinis on CD and limited-edition double LP on white vinyl! Sweet! Sam gave us four bonus tracks for this reissue, one of which, a new version of the great, “Strawberry Road,” she recorded specifically for this release! Uh, she’s awesome! Next release announcements coming this week, lots of great stuff coming up, stay tuned!

    Buck Owens Webstore Exclusive

    The Buck Owens Coloring Book E.P. (with red, white or blue Flexi-disc!) blew off the shelves on Record Store Day, and though we have no crystal ball to figure out what’s going to sell and how many, we anticipated that this one might just become scarce very quick. So as we were hand-assembling them, we held 150 back for a webstore exclusive.

    Sam Phillips Martinis & Bikinis Plus 4 Bonus Tracks

    We’re thrilled to release another one of our absolute favorite albums from the ’90s, Martinis & Bikinis by Sam Phillips! Produced by T Bone Burnett and released in 1994, this is a true classic and we worked closely with Sam to make sure every attention to detail has been properly tended. Sam chose to add four bonus tracks to both the remastered CD and double LP.

    Get More Knack, Buck, and Ernie Too

    We hope everyone had a great Record Store Day! This was our second one, and it went swimmingly with Buck Owens Coloring Book EP and The Knack Live In Los Angeles, 1978 10″ selling out across the country. Thank you all for your support. And, just so you understand the method to our madness, those titles we picked for RSD were not random at all.

    RSD: Our Favorite Day Of The Year

    In fact, it’s tomorrow, Saturday, April 21st. Record Store Day means quite a bit to us here at Omnivore, as RSD 2011 saw our first releases hit the street — Big Star’s Third and Buck Owens’ “Close Up The Honky Tonks” b/w “My Heart Skips A Beat.” Both sold out within hours, and we were both proud and grateful that we had put out releases people really dug. If you weren’t lucky enough to get one of the 1,300 Buck singles last year—we’re happy to announce that the tracks are now available digitally at the Omnivore shop, or wherever fine digital music is sold!
