Dark Horse Records and Record Store Day are excited to announce a multi-year partnership to release limited Zoetrope picture disc pressings of George Harrison’s entire studio album catalogue.

 

The first two titles in the RSD exclusive series – Wonderwall Music and Electronic Sound - are available on Record Store Day in April 2024.

 

Limited to 8,000 units globally and exclusive to Record Store Day, each unit is individually numbered in silver foil and includes an insert reproducing the original artwork.

 

As a direct result of The Beatles’ keen curiosity about experimental music and other avant-garde artistic expression, Apple Records launched its short-lived Zapple subsidiary in February 1969 as a forum for unfettered sonic exploration, or, as announced at the time, “more freaky sounds.”

 

George’s Electronic Sound and John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Unfinished Music No. 2: Life with the Lions, both released in May 1969, were Zapple’s only releases before it was closed down.

 

Electronic Sound’s cover art, painted by George, depicts his Moog IIIp synthesizer (which was later used on four tracks by The Beatles on their album Abbey Road) with the four modules from which the sound was synthesized.

 

Each side of the Electronic Sound LP featured one exploratory long-form work.

 

This is an exclusive Record Store Day 2024 release. Available in-store from 8:00am Saturday 20th April, with all remaining stock available online from at 8:00pm on Monday 22nd April. Strictly 1 per customer. Click notify me to be kept up to date.
