The seventh annual Record Store Day is this Saturday!
The organizers for the annual Record Store Day have teamed up with almost every leading indie label and even some major labels to release limited edition exclusives just for the occasion. The event has been a big part of the resurgence in the popularity of vinyl over that last few years.
