For music fans this is one of the best days of the years, Record Store Day. On Saturday, April 20 we see another year of some great limited edition vinyl albums to be released to participating stores for this years event. The Ambassador to this years Record Store Day is the great guitarist Jack White who will be re-releasing a vinyl version of The White Stripes “Elephant” in honor of the 10th anniversary of the albums release.
Additional albums released on this day is a Ramones cover album from New Found Glory, GasLight Anthem “Handwritten” deluxe and so much more. Some of the record stores participating will also feature special musical performances such Silversun Pickups at Oragami Vinyl in Los Angeles, CA and Halestorm in Chandler, Arizona at Zia Records.
Before digital downloading, before CDâ€™s, and before cassette was the vinyl record. A lot has changed but a comeback of the vinyl record has slowly been growing with the help ofÂ Record Store Day. An event that helps promote the mom and pop stores that at one time your musical librarian to some of the latest and greatest sounds.
Though in this day and age of Walmart and Best Buy, the independent record store was almost a lost experience 5 years ago. It was revived when the event started on April 19, 2008 in the San Francisco music shop,Â Rasputin MusicÂ and kicked off byÂ Metallica. In such a short time the event is now celebrated by 700 US independently owned record stores and hundreds of stores internationally.
Today it is an event to experience with the cooperation between independent record stores and musicians who have released special limited edition releases of old and newly produced albums just for this day. The list of the albums that will be available can be viewed below with a list of participating stores.
