Saturday is Record Store Day

  • Record Store Day is Saturday, April 20.

So it's been a tragic and bizarre week, and I think it's perfectly understandable if folks wanted to take a day to decompress and think about something else for a while, perhaps with a little retail distraction.

For the music buffs, I would suggest partaking in Record Store Day, which will be observed Saturday at North Little Rock's Arkansas Record & CD Exchange, along with hundreds of other outlets around the world. For those of you in Northwest Arkansas, check out Fayetteville's Sound Warehouse.

RSD is an important observance for those of us who still value the experience of actually looking through stacks and racks of physical music formats — LPs, CDs, 78s, 45s, Edison wax rolls, cassettes, 8-tracks, reel-to-reel tapes, MiniDiscs and probably a couple others.

To commemorate such a special holiday, tons of bands and labels issue special, Record-Store-Day-only releases. Take a peek at the list of titles, many of which will be available at the Record Exchange and Sound Warehouse.

After the jump, check out a video from ARCD owner Bill Eginton. Oh, and support your local record store(s)!
