Release Day Picks Spotify Playlist


This year Team JamBase introduced a new weekly feature called Release Day Picks to highlight the new albums we’ll be spinning on the day they get released. Now that 2016 is about at its halfway mark, this week’s Saturday Stream Spotify Playlist is a collection of available albums that have been among the 66 selected across the first 15 installments of RDP.

So far we’ve showcased albums by such legends as Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Bonnie Raitt, Iggy Pop, Mavis Staples, David Grisman, Graham Nash, Santana, The Del McCoury Band, Mudcrutch, Allen Toussaint and others. The playlist includes new live releases by Frank Zappa and Grateful Dead (the Red Rocks 1978 supplement to their Complete July 1978 set is included) and there are remastered reissues featuring previously unreleased material from My Morning Jacket and Ryan Adams.

From the jam scene you’ll find recently issued LPs by Steve Kimock, Marco Benevento, Michael Franti & Spearhead, The New Deal, Hot Buttered Rum, Hard Working Americans, Kung Fu, Jerry Joseph and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong as well as such other favorites as Ben Harper And The Innocent Criminals, Animal Collective, Woods, Charles Bradley, M. Ward, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real, Ray LaMontagne, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, Band Of Horses, William Tyler and many others. There are various artists compilations including the massive Grateful Dead Day Of The Dead tribute, the Alligator Records tribute to Blind Willie Johnson and Dave Cobb’s Southern Family concept album.

The playlist will continue to grow each week with each new Release Day Picks entry, stream it below:
