This Saturday (April 23) is Record Store Day, the one day of the year that unites more than 250 record shops in the UK and thousands globally. It’s a celebration of their independence, unique culture and the art of vinyl.

Many of the world’s major recording artists support the event by releasing exclusive vinyl records. This year includes releases from the likes of David Bowie, Blur, Noel Gallagher, The Rolling Stones, The Prodigy and hundreds more.

Nice Price Books and Records – 3106 Hillsborough St. Nice Price is my favorite record store in Raleigh and perhaps the one that has drained my bank account the most. I first went with Vol. 102 editors Jaylan Harrington, Caryl Espinoza Jaen and Avery Davis, along with Managing Editor Sam Overton, and that experience spurred me to keep going back.

Scotland, UK | Record Store Day 2022 in Scotland: When is it, what exclusive records are available and how can I buy them? The pandemic has meant that Record Store Day has been a little different – with two separate ‘drops’ of limited vinyl last year – but it looks like things are back to normal for 2022.

Now over 200 independent record stores across the UK take part each year, selling thousands of copies of exclusive vinyl, from new releases to old classics. Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s event.

Chicago, IL | 3CR’s Guide to Record Store Day 2022 in Chicago and Beyond: It’s time for Record Store Day to celebrate 15 years of fantastic vinyl exclusives! Since COVID-19 forced the annual day of record store celebration to split into three in 2020 and two editions last year, things have been a little tumultuous. The pandemic and interest in vinyl rising has also caused delays, pushing records off their originally announced dates. While this Saturday, April 23 is the official Record Store Day, there will be another RSD drop on June 18 for any titles that couldn’t make it in time (and there’s quite a few that have been moved to the later date). The fun event has always had some criticism, specifically its focus on costly vinyl, records that don’t necessarily need to be repressed, flippers picking up all the rarest goodies to resell at even more ridiculous prices, record stores not making as much as they once did because of all the corporate overlords digging their nails into the backs of small business, etc. And now with the ever looming pandemic, safety has become an issue.

Note: Not all participating stores will carry every new release. If you’re looking for a specific title, make sure to contact your local record store directly.
