Pete Townshend's Deep End - Face The Face - 2022 Record Store Day 2LP releaseA reminder, should you need it: it's the 2022 Record Store Day! Each year, they reveal a list of limited edition, one-day-only releases sold via participating stores over the counter (and not via mail order), and for Floyd fans there's a potential gem tucked away amongst this year's items, which may be of interest.

Mercury Studios are releasing, for the very first time on vinyl, Pete Townshend's Face The Face album recorded live at MIDEM in Cannes on January 23rd 1986 and broadcast live by Rockpalast, the German TV show. The album was released on DVD/CD in 2016.

The new 2LP set is pressed on bright yellow vinyl and includes 14 songs from the concert.

The band, known as Pete Townshend's Deep End, included David Gilmour on guitar for their limited run of shows in late 1985 and early 1986, and also featured Townshend on guitar and vocals, Peter Hope-Evans on harmonica, Chucho Merchan on bass, Simon Phillips on drums, John ‘Rabbit’ Bundrick on keyboards, and Jody Linscot on percussion.

They were joined by the Kick Horns: Simon Clarke, Roddy Lorimer, Tim Sanders, Pete Beachill and Dave Plews, with backing vocals provided by Billy Nicholls, Ian Ellis, Chris Staines, Gina Foster and Coral Gordon.

As with the other RSD 2022 releases, it is a limited edition: often the RSD releases are pressed up as just a couple of thousand or so worldwide. As yet we don't know how many there will be of these to snap up on the day.

And, as we've mentioned previously, all the limited edition items are released via RSD participating stores today, 23rd April 2022 - go to or for more details of who those will be. A reminder that it will ONLY be these stores participating; the stores themselves can't sell it online - the record will become available for customers coming through the door of the store from the morning of the 23rd (and not before), in limited quantities - first come, first served, and only one copy per customer. After RSD, if copies remain, they may put them for sale online (and of course, there'll also be copies on eBay inevitably...).
