I did not take part as I have in past years by getting up early and finding a record store where I could purchase Record Store Day collectibles.
However there was one RSD vinyl EP that I clamored for and that was The Doors, Ghost Song/Drums.
When I saw that The Doors.com Store was selling this collectible direct to the public I ordered a copy. I like that the proceeds from the sale of this recording go to Honor The Treaties.
Indigenous communities are fighting their most important battles in recent history—battles to protect the integrity of their land and water and traditions. The treaties are at the heart of these battles. Article VI, Clause 2 of the US Constitution, also known as the Supremacy Clause, lists these treaties as the “supreme law of the land.”
The record’s cover art was done by Shepard Fairey, the graphic designer behind the famous Barack Obama “Hope” and Andre the Giant “Obey” images. The “Ghost Song” cover is based on images by prize-winning National Geographic photojournalist Aaron Huey.
