As you may know, Saturday is Record Store Day and there are hundreds of exclusive titles being released just for the occasion. Some of them don’t seem so essential—do you really need a 12″ picture disc of Toto’s “Africa” that’s in the shape of Africa? (ok, maybe you do)—but there are always a few things that get us excited. (We did want those Spacemen 3 reissues until we learned Sonic Boom and Jason Pierce asked fans not to buy them.) We also hope to find one of those free Hollie Cook singles on our journeys Saturday, but here are 17 things we’re actually looking for.

The Doors - ‘Live at the Matrix ’67’

Especially because Jim Morrison died before many of us younger fans could ever see him perform, The Doors’ live recordings and live films are worth treasuring. In honor of The Doors’ 50th anniversary, they’re giving the first-ever vinyl release to the recording of this show from the first year they were a band.
