Music fans ready for Record Store Day

Record Store Day: The biggest selling albums in indie shops of the last year

Record Store Day: The biggest selling albums in indie shops of the last year

In an era of record stores closing down, Steamboat was created from the closure of HMV in Limerick in 2013.

To celebrate the day, some artists will just pop into a store or will have a specialty album shipped out. Saturday, all $1 records are 25 cents and $5 records are $2.50.

National Record Store Day (RSD) is on April 21, so Park Ave CDs plans to celebrate by stocking at least one of every 400 RSD-branded releases created for the US market. The limited edition items are often colored vinyl, are numbered, and have special packaging.

Rachael Smith covers local businesses for The News & Advance.

RSD is always full of special releases, and this year is no different.

The Flaming Lips. The band collaborated with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery on a special Record Store Day Band project including a 7-inch single with songs The Story of Yum Yum and Dragon and Pouring Beer in Your Ear, composed by frontman Wayne Coyne.

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit.

Early this week, the Record Works received its first of many shipments of these rarities, including a live Stompin' Tom Connors record pressed on gold vinyl, some never-released David Bowie recordings and a Porg die-cut picture disc of music from The Last Jedi.

Vinyl is not an exclusive club, anyone and everyone is encouraged to come along - with over 500 exclusive releases we don't doubt that you're going to unearth so many hidden treasures, but you'll have to beat us to it (the game is on guys).

Wu-Tang Clan. You can get the original Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) available on cassette for the first time since its original release in 1993.
