The list of record store day releases just came out and I found this interesting:

http://www.recordstoreday.com/SpecialRelease/5375

Basically, over 100 tracks of material over 8 cds, but that's all the site says. I've done some looking around but I can't find any more information. Anyone know anything else about it? Like what the actual contents are?

My best guess is that it's a package deal on the two 4-CD Box sets entitled "A  21st Century Guide to King Crimson" volumes 1 and 2, released several years ago.  Plus a t-shirt

Volume 1: http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=7801

Volume 2: http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=9564


I agree the entry on Record Store Day is a bit vague.

Interesting.

I didn't see that at my record store, but I got the second to last 45 with The Flaming Lips' A Spoonful Weighs a Ton and a cover of the same song on the other side by Mastodon.  

I was intrigued but had no idea what to expect... anyways the Mastodon version works very well.




I looked for the Sigur Ros special release too, but they must have sold them already.
