Start your countdown, vinyl fans. There’s just one month before Record Store Day celebrates its 10th anniversary, April 22.
The annual vinyl extravaganza finds music fans flocking to record stores to celebrate the medium and purchase limited edition vinyl and CD releases made just for Record Store Day. Most record stores also host live music and giveaways as part of the festivities.
This year, expect to search the crates for exclusive releases by acts like blues singer/guitarist Buddy Guy, whose “Sick With Love” will feature two brand new songs; country singer Sam Hunt, who is releasing “Drinkin’ Too Much” as a 7”; folk-rock trio the Lumineers, which is releasing “Song Seeds,” a 10” that features the demo, album and live versions of two songs from its latest album, “Cleopatra”; rock band Toto, releasing an Africa-shaped picture disc featuring “Africa” and “Rosanna”; and two releases from the late David Bowie, “BOWPROMO,” which includes seven Bowie tracks and five exclusive Bowie prints, and “Cracked Actor,” a previously unreleased live recording of Bowie’s Sept. 5, 1974 show in Los Angeles.
