TVD Vinyl Giveaway: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Live, Volume 1

It’s both telling and sobering that, upon Prince’s passing, his—what’s the word?—otherworldly, seemingly effortless guitar solo as the outro to George Harrison’s “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” performed at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for George’s posthumous induction was just…everywhere.

The induction jams are moments captured in a bottle. And those moments for the first time have been captured on vinyl—180 gram, natch—and we have a few copies of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Live, Volume 1 to give away. First, here’s some official stuff:

“For over a quarter century, rock and roll’s biggest stars have gathered on one special evening for an exclusive party: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies. Honoring music’s most influential figures with the most prestigious of awards, it’s also an evening where both artists and fans celebrate rock and roll with once-in-a-lifetime performances. For the first time on vinyl, Time Life has pressed a selection of the most memorable moments in the history of the induction ceremony, previously only available in digital and physical formats.

Volumes 2 and 3 will roll out though 2016, allowing fans to collect even more of these beloved performances on vinyl. Additionally, the net proceeds go to The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation, which supports the exhibits and educational programs of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

This release includes performances from legendary talents like Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Cream, Jeff Lynne, Steve Winwood, Metallica, Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Ron Wood, Joe Perry, Tom Petty, Green Day, James Taylor, Al Green, Chuck Berry and more.

Unforgettable collaborations occur on this volume, such as Tom Petty paired with Prince, and Mick Jagger paired with Bruce Springsteen. Jam-filled performances of chart-busters like “Johnny Be Goode,” “Tenth Avenue Freeze Out,” “A Change is Gonna Come,” “Train Kept a Rollin,’” “Ironman,” “Woodstock,” “Blitzkrieg Bop,” “Can’t Get No Satisfaction,” and a show-stopping performance of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps,” make this volume a must-have for any LP library.

The biggest names in rock, performing in intimate settings and jamming in combinations not seen anywhere else, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Live, Volume 1 is a 180 gram black vinyl “ticket” to the very best the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies have to offer.”

…and we have 3 tickets to send to 3 of you.

Enter to win a copy of Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Live, Volume 1 by citing in the comments below a RRHOF performance you believe deserves the vinyl treatment—and briefly why. We’ll choose 3 enlightened entrants with a North American mailing address for a copy of the LP a week from today, May 12, 2016.

    I was at the 1995 concert in Cleveland and would love to hear the duet between Al Green and Aretha Franklin. Another highlight was James Brown’s performance. What a great 7 hours of music.

  • TheDreamerCometh

    Talking Heads 2002 session because we will never see or hear this band together ever again,

  • High Rant District

    John Fogarty playing Creedence Clearwater Revival songs with Springsteen instead of his supposedly stunned former bandmates when CCR got inducted in 1993. Just to listen to the thickness of the tension that had to be hanging in the air!

  • Cliff H (Hawkman64)

    Cheap Trick because sometimes ya just gotta have more !!!

    I loved Sara Bareilles tribute to Laura Nyro when Laura was inducted. Her rendition of ‘Stoney End’ was heartfelt and stunning; a fitting salute to one of the greatest songwriter/singers this country has ever produced.

  • Shanghai_Kev

    Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page performing a storming rendition of Beck’s Bolero infused with the main riff from the Immigrant Song during Beck’s Induction in 2009 at Public Hall in Cleveland, OH: The Rock and Roll Capital of the World! How much sweeter do you want it?!

  • G Wally

    Black Magic Woman — written by Fleetwood Mac founder, Peter Green and popularized by Carlos Santana, two of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s greatest guitarists rocked the house with their 1998 induction jam.
