Echo & The Bunnymen’s 1980 debut album Crocodiles will be reissued for Record Store Day in a new 180-gram audiophile pressing on red vinyl by reissue specialist Vinyl 180, the label announced in an e-mail newsletter this week. No further details have been revealed, and it’s not yet known whether it will be a U.K.-only release or also put out in the U.S.
This year’s Record Store Day falls on April 20, and while the full list of exclusive releases has not yet been posted, we do so far know of special titles coming from Hüsker Dü, Robyn Hitchcock, Paul Weller, Wire and Duran Duran — and, possibly, The Glove (see links below).
