This Saturday, April 18, marks one of the most special days of the year: Record Store Day!
Record Store Day dates back to a 2007 gathering of independent record store owners and employees where the day was conceived as a way to “celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally.”
Perhaps not coincidently, vinyl record sales have also been making a serious comeback since 2007.

Each year, many great musicians and bands release exclusive new material or limited edition reissues of their most acclaimed albums especially for Record Store Day.
