Here's a list of Detroit-connected Record Store Day releases


Record Store Day 2015 has announced its list of exclusives for this year, and because Detroit is such a music town there's a few Motor City-related releases on there:

• J Dilla's out-of-print "Fuck the Police," previously released as a 12-inch, gets the RSD treatment as a 9-inch police badge-shaped picture disc. Dilla's previously unreleased "Love" also gets released as a 7-inch.

• The White Stripes' Get Behind Me Satan sees its first commercial release as red and white vinyl double LP.

• A 7-inch single celebrating the 50th anniversary of Marvin Gaye’s “How Sweet It (To Be Loved By You)." A duet with Mary Wells, “Once Upon A Time,” is the B-side. 

• The Stooges' Have Some Fun: Live at Ungano's, a 1970 performance on black and white spattered vinyl.

• Speaking of which, Stooges collaborator Mike Watt and his band the Secondmen will be featured on a clear split 7-inch.

• Macaulay Culkin's pizza-loving band, the Pizza Underground, will release a record on former MT contributor Jarrett Koral's label.

• Air's "Playground Love" 7-inch (from the soundtrack to The Virgin Suicides — which was set in a Grosse Pointe, duh) on orange vinyl.

• George Clinton's Chocolate City: London | P-Funk Live at Metropolis, a box set containing a 12-inch, a CD, and a DVD. 

Record Store Day is April 18, 2015. Check with your favorite record store to see if they're participating.
