Sony’s Legacy Recordings is releasing Janis Joplin's Greatest Hits on colored vinyl; a four LP set of Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds Live At Luther College; rapper Prodigy’s “Keep It Thoro” on a  12" picture disc; and a Preservation Hall Jazz Band live album, Run Stop & Drop!! (The Needle).

Rhino is preparing 12 limited edition releases. The LPs are Dimebag Darrell’s The Hitz (limited to 6,000 copies); The DoorsAbsolutely Live (2-LP, 12,000 copies on midnight blue vinyl); Grateful Dead Records Collection (5-LP boxed set, 7,500 copies); The Notorious B.I.G.’s Hypnotize (9,000 copies on black and orange mixed vinyl); 50th anniversary edition of Otis Redding’s Live In Europe (6,000 copies on 140-gram red vinyl); the 40th anniversary Deluxe Edition of Richard Hell and The Voidoids’ Blank Generation (2-LP limited edition of 4,500 copies); Son Volt’s Straightaways (4,500 copies); Twisted Sister’s A Twisted Christmas (4,200 copies on green vinyl); and Tori Amos Y Kant Tori Read (6,500 copies on orange vinyl).
