Run For The Roses set for Record Store Day 2018 reissue

The RSD re-issue was re-mastered by Fred Kevorkian and pressed to vinyl by Pallas Group in a limited edition of 5,000 pieces featuring individually numbered foil-stamped jackets.  Each LP includes a free MP3 download of the re-mastered album audio. Record Store Day 2018 will be held on Saturday, April 21st.  Find a participating, independently owned record store near you at
