The music and magic of Midland’s LIVE at the Palomino show becomes available on vinyl this Saturday, August 29 as part of the first RSD Drops dates, a re-working of Record Store Day, celebrating the people who make up the world of the record stores. Midland’s LIVE at the Palomino LP, whose cover art features an original illustration of the North Hollywood haunt, will be available at select stores across the country. The special vinyl features 17 live tracks that are an unapologetic hybrid of Midland’s classic country embrace of grown-up themes of drinking, cheating and seduction. On the night before the limited edition vinyl’s release, Record Store Day will premiere the Midland LIVE at the Palomino concert special on its Facebook page at 8 p.m. ET on Friday (Aug. 28).
