RSD 2015: RPM Turntable Baseball announced

News / Record Store Day 2015 / March 12, 2015

Following up on the RPM Turntable Football release of RSD yesteryear, Microfiche has moved on to Turntable Baseball, which will be a 7″ release on opaque blue vinyl. You can see the description below, which again is an interactive experience, this time with 13 different grooves:

The follow up to the successful and out of print RPM Turntable Football, is the 2015 Record Store Day Exclusive RPM Turntable Baseball!  The envelope has been pushed a little further as this record has a whopping 13 grooves spread over one 7″.  The A side is the title game, players take turns getting runs, outs, home runs, and more as they play a full 9 inning game on their turntable.  There’s even a separate band of grooves should you feel like you’d like to try to steal a base.  The B-side is The Concession Stand Challenge.  This game is both an homage to stadium mascot races and to the horse racing turntable games of the 50’s.  You name the stakes and the record chooses the winner; it could be Hot Dog, Salted Nuts, Nachos, Soft Pretzel, or Falafel. Both of these games again use Decagonaphonic Multi-groove Technology.  Jay Grainer and Barry Dingle return to provide color commentary on all the action and offer clear instructions when to advance your players to the next base, or add an out to your score card. Available for the first time ever on Record Store Day 2015, exclusively in a limited edition colored vinyl. Get it while you can.

It comes packaged in a matchbook jacket.
