The official list of Record Store Black Friday Special Releases is out, and we have it for you below. Record Store Day falls on April 3, but the organizers still like to get in on the Black Friday fun. Music fans of all ages look forward to Record Store Day every year. There are usually dozens of exclusive, limited-edition LPs up for grabs. Record Store Day has participated in Black Friday for a few years now.
The list is divided into three sections:
Exclusives are only available at participating indie record stores.
Small Run are vinyl that has less than 1,000 copies available. This makes these records difficult to find. They also tend to hold sentimental — rather than monetary — value.
RSD First titles are debuting on Record Store Day. These titles will eventually be available elsewhere.
Here are some of our favorites:
- Dreams 12″ Vinyl – Beck (Exclusive)
- Halo I-IV 4 x 12″ Vinyl Set – Nine Inch Nails (Exclusive)
- Stankonia 2 x LP – Outkast (Exclusive)
- TV Set 10″ Vinyl – Spoon (Exclusive)
- Earthling LP – David Bowie (Exclusive)
- Lullaby Renditions of Fleetwood Mac -Rockabye Baby! (Exclusive)
- Bohemian Rhapsody – Queen (Exclusive
- In The Air Tonight– Phil Collins (Limited Run)
- Burning Desire 2 x LP – Jimi Hendrix (First Release)
- True Detective Soundtrack 2 x LP – Various Artists (Exclusive)
Keep in mind that record stores are not required to participate in this event, so you’ll want to call your favorite shop to see if they are participating. Almost every title featured in this list is limited-release, meaning not every title will be available at every store. If you’re interested in special releases, contact your local indie record store.
