Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, is gearing up for one of their biggest line-ups in years for Record Store Day (April 22, 2023).
From Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees to legends of rock, reggae and hip-hop, this year’s selection of titles (all available exclusively at RSD participating independent record stores) offers something for everyone – a testament to the power of music on vinyl and the joy of adding new LPs to your collection.

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. With vinyl sales roaring back after decades of enthusiasm among a small faithful, Record Store Day heads into its 16th year with participating stores and celebrations on six continents.
Legacy’s Record Store Day exclusives include:
Billy Joel, Live at The Great American Music Hall 1975 (2 x 12” Gray Opaque Vinyl)
Billy Joel Live at The Great American Music Hall 1975, available on Gray opaque vinyl & digitally, was recorded at The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, June 1975. The live gig from the Streetlife Serenade tour introduces the earliest available recordings of future Turnstiles classics ‘James’ and ‘New York State Of Mind’ into Billy’s catalog, and includes examples of Billy’s loving imitations of Joe Cocker, Elton John and Leon Russell — a staple of his early concerts.
