Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, gears up for Record Store Day with another stellar assortment of exclusive releases on vinyl and cassette, to be released Saturday, April 13, 2019.
Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a regular celebration of the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the U.S. and thousands of similar stores around the world. This year, Pearl Jam has been named as Record Store Day’s Official Ambassador.

Legacy Recordings’ Record Store Day 2019 releases include:
Billy Joel, Live At Carnegie Hall 1977 (2LP – Previously Unreleased On Vinyl)
On June 3, 1977, Billy Joel and his band wrapped a tour with a performance at New York’s venerable Carnegie Hall. The audience was treated to a stellar set, accompanied by a live orchestra and featuring several then-unreleased songs, including the newly-written epic “Scenes From An Italian Restaurant” and the romantic “Just The Way You Are.” One of the show’s many attendees was producer/engineer Phil Ramone, who helped Billy translate his boundless live energy into his blockbuster fifth album, The Stranger, released later that year. This historic show is available on vinyl for the first time!
