Record Store Day Is A-Comin’!



Technically, Black Friday,
November, at your favorite local indie store..


By Fred Mills


As the good folks at hasten to point out,
Friday, November 26, is NOT an official Record Store Day, at least not like the
one they coordinate nationwide across the indie retail sector each April. They’re
just referring to it as “Black Friday.” But it IS going to be a day when you
can find some fairly nifty exclusives.


So assuming you’re actually insane enough to go shopping the
day after Thanksgiving – we’ll be out hiking ourselves and will steer clear of
the malls and supercenters, but may have to find a way to swing by the record
shop at least – below is a shortlist of some of those goodies you should keep
your eyes peeled for. You can find the full list of releases at the Record
Store Day website,
and they even have the list available in PDF form (including
notes on the releases and the quantities that have been manufactured) that you
can print out.
