It may feel like a struggle to get up off the couch and stand in line for all those sales the day after Thanksgiving — but the folks behind Record Store Day are working overtime to lure you out to your local music retailer with a bevy of Black Friday exclusives.

Rhino Records will be joining the fun with a double shot of vinyl from a pair of classic rock heavyweights, offering the two-LP set ‘Winterland 5/30/71′ from the Grateful Dead as well as a limited 45th anniversary edition of Love’s ‘Forever Changes.’

Both titles will be pressed in extremely limited quantities — only 7500 copies of ‘Winterland 5/30/71′ are heading out to stores, and ‘Forever Changes’ is enjoying an even smaller run, at 1500 copies — and they’ll be priced accordingly, with the Dead set listing at $34.98 and the Love LP going for $24.98.

As Rhino points out in its press release announcing the titles, ‘Winterland 5/30/71′ captures the “second night of a homestand during the era later immortalized on the 1971 live collection ‘Skull and Roses.’” Although it represents only a portion of the show, it offers fans everything the band has in its vaults — 10 songs in all, painstakingly mastered from the original quarter-inch tapes.

The new pressing of ‘Forever Changes’ was similarly cut from the original analog masters, and as an added bonus, it includes a 7″ disc featuring the single edit of ‘Alone Again Or’ backed with ‘House Is Not a Motel.’ Have a look at the complete list of Black Friday exclusives over at the Record Store Day site, and peruse the complete track listing for ‘Winterland 5/30/71′ below.
