Cool Record Store Day goodies from Pawelski's Omnivore

The annual Record Store Day is on the horizon, taking place on April 21, 2012. The event seeks to drive traffic to indie record shops, and most labels unveil a series of gems each year to drive customers.

This year, Omnivore Recordings, an L.A.-based label co-owned by Milwaukee native Cheryl Pawelski, has some fun goodies to celebrate Record Store Day 2012.

First up, as a teaser for Omnivore's May CD release, "Havin' A Rave-Up! Live in Los Angeles, 1978," by The Knack, there's "The Knack Live in Los Angeles, 1978" four-song 10" on splatter-colored vinyl.

In addition to two songs from the 14-track CD – "Let Me Out" and "My Sharona" – the 10" has two songs – "Romeo Eyes" and "Art War" from a 1978 rehearsal." The vinyl is limited to 1,500 copies.

Doug Fieger dug deep into the archive for those recordings, but from an even older stash comes an original vintage 1970 Buck Owens coloring book with a four-track EP on red, clear or blue flexidisc.

According to Omnivore, these are "original, uncirculated vintage coloring books (that) have been safely stored by Buck Owens Enterprises for over 40 years!"

The coloring book and flexi (limited to 2,500 copies) are packaged together – along with a digital download card – in a plastic envelope. The songs – "Act Naturally," "Together Again," "Crying Time" and "I've Got a Tiger By the Tail" – were recorded live at the White House (yes, that White House) in 1968.

Pretty cool stuff.
