On April 21st, the day will be known as Record Store Day: a day in which independent music stores get rare vinyls in order to sell them. Loads of bands contribute towards Record Store Day by releasing these obscure records, which will only be sold on that day in the independent shops.
This year has releases ranging from The Black Keys to Noel Gallagher, Jack White to Metallica, and Arctic Monkeys to David Bowie. Some bands set a limit on the amount of vinyls that will be sold during the day, meaning they will be individually numbered, and then rare in the future. Not all stores provide all vinyls that are available on Record Store Day, but you may find that the popular ones are there for sale.
"We discovered a common bond between us and some of these older artists like B.B. King. When we met him there was a whole world of understanding and nothing needed to be said. That has been the payoff of working ten years to get into this position. We no longer have to prove ourselves. It's in the music and people can hear it."
- Adam Clayton
