Records by The Beatles, Elvis Presley and New order will be given away at the new flagship HMV store on Oxford Street next week.

The free vinyl will be available each day next week at the retailer's newly-reopened shop on 363 Oxford Street on a first-come-first-served basis when doors open at 8am.

A 7" promo for The Beatles' 'Live On Air Volume 2' will be the first to be given away on Monday (October 14). Some 300 copies of a limited 7" to support the forthcoming album of BBC recordings of the same name will be made available.

A limited colour pressing of Elvis Presley's eponymous 1956 debut album will be given away on Tuesday (October 15). Some 100 copies will be on offer.

Some 100 copies of a clear vinyl version of New Order's 'Movement' will be available for free on Wednesday (October 16), while 30 copies of a rare 10" 78 RPM Robbie Williams promotional disc will be available on Thursday (October 17). For more information, see HMV's Facebook page.

Hilco chief executive and HMV chairman Paul McGowan recently explained how he plans to improve the flagging retailer following the administrator's £50m takeover earlier this year.

In a blog for NME, McGowan outlines five major ways in which HMV will improve, singling out the quality of the stock in store, instore performances, HMV's online presence, representing local scenes and trends as well as an increase in the number of Fopp stores around the UK.

HMV recently returned to the Oxford Street flagship shop last month (September 28). The chain first opened at the site in 1921 and remained in the property until 2000 before relocating. The store was where The Beatles cut the demo disc that led to them meeting George Martin and signing their recording contract with EMI in 1961.
