Finally; after months of receiving daily e-mails about this year’s exclusive Record Store Day releases, the all-vinyl-everything holiday has shared its final list of catnip for weak-willed collectors, including 7, 10 and 12-inch pieces that are broken down into the following categories:
RECORD STORE DAY EXCLUSIVE RELEASES. Exclusively available on Record Store Day at Record Store Day participating stores. Will not be available anywhere else in the same format.
RECORD STORE DAY LIMITED RUN/REGIONAL FOCUS RELEASES. Also exclusively available on Record Store Day at Record Store Day participating stores, but may not be distributed nationally, or the quantities of these titles are EXTREMELY limited. 1000 and under and WAY under 1000 in some cases. We felt it was only right to put them on a special sub-list, so that everyone is clear on the odds.
‘RECORD STORE DAY FIRST’ RELEASE. These are titles that you can find on Record Store Day at Record Store Day participating stores. So if you’re a fan of the artist, you get first listen. At some point in the future, generally four to six weeks, these titles will be available at other retailers.
Among the new additions are a remastered reissue of Joy Division’s debut EP (sans its questionable Hitler Youth cover art), LP pressings of World Music Network’s popular Rough Guide series, and a garage rock compilation from Toledo, Ohio, called Breaking Glass. Take a look at the complete rundown here; what are you all willing to wait in ridiculous lines for?
