The Blacklist LP Info
Spacelab9, in partnership with Madison Gate Records, is keeping vinyl alive! Just when you though that the music on The Blacklist was unstoppable, music supervisor John Bissell (“The Hurt Locker”, “Zero Dark Thirty”) and executive producer and series creator Jon Bokenkamp hand picked songs from the first two seasons of the show to make The Blacklist LP. Boasting a collection of twelve tracks from cutting-edge artists, “THE BLACKLIST: MUSIC FROM THE TELEVISION SERIES” LP includes music from Algiers, Radical Face, Timber Timbre and Hozier. You can also hear time-honored classics by Bobby Darin, Gordon Lightfoot and a slowed-down version of “Jolene” by the legendary Dolly Parton.
This deluxe, one-time only vinyl pressing from Spacelab9 is limited to 1500 copies and includes a full-color, 16-page 12” x 12” dossier featuring encrypted text that can only be read when viewed through the “decoder ring” red vinyl record.

About Record Store Day 2016
Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica. This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities.
Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, DJs spinning records, and on and on. In 2015, 60% of the Record Store Day Official Release List came from independent labels and distributors. The list continues to include a wide range of artists, covering the diverse taste of record stores and their customers. This year The Blacklist LP will be one of those very special releases.
