Rodriguez and Record Store Day Make Sweet Music Together

Rodriguez-RSD Single - 300 dpi

Record Store Day 2010 is set for April 17, and we’re knee-knocking excited about our contribution. Our Man in Detroit – Rodriguez – is the reason for all this exuberance. LITA is releasing a special 7″ featuring two live performances from Rodriguez’s 2009 tour. The A side is a recording of “Inner City Blues” from his Cold Fact album performed on the streets of Paris. The B side is a cover of Frank Sinatra’s “I’m Gonna Live Till I Die” recorded at The Triple Door in Seattle. The release will be packaged in a hand-numbered gatefold jacket. It includes a CD sampler featuring a dozen new tracks from our catalog, and the latest issue of our magazine with 40 pages of articles and exclusive interviews.

To celebrate the release, Rodriguez (with a full band to accompany him) is scheduled for a live performance on Record Store Day at Criminal Records in Atlanta, one of our favorite record shops. To commemorate the day, Criminal Records is releasing a special version of the 7″ printed on gold vinyl containing a ticket to attend that night’s show. Awesome, right?

And if you are fortunate to call Australia home, Rodriguez kicks off a tour of that lovely country next week. The man remains an amazing live performer, and it would be well worth your time to see him in his element.
