This Black Friday shop your local record store 

It’s almost upon us — Black Friday, coming Nov. 25. And to get you out of the house and into an actual establishment, Record Store Day, Warner Brothers and its affiliated labels have come up with suitably cool vinyl-only collector’s items.

The first: Arguably the most definitive Red Hot Chili Peppers album, “Blood Sugar Sex Magik,” remastered and reissued for the first time in two decades. The ’91 classic is pressed on 140-gram red vinyl, in a limited domestic edition of 2,500.

The next? Iron And Wine’s “Live At KCRW,” Sam Beam’s acoustic on-air performance from Jan. 26 of this year, with 2,500 copies available, plus an included CD.

Also available: A two-song Black Keys 12” EP, featuring two songs from their upcoming “El Camino” album (“Lonely Boy” b/w “Run Right Back”); Tom Petty’s “Kiss My Amps (Live),” tracked during his 2010 “Mojo” tour and including a hard-to-find B-side called “Sweet William” (5,000 copies of this one available); and Eric Clapton’s three-album, five-disc “Blues Box” set on 180-gram European vinyl. It features “From The Cradle,” “Riding With The King” and “Me And Mr. Johnson.”
