Record Store Day, around since 2007, is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store-staff, customers, and the artists-to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special limited vinyl (including loads of unreleased material and first time on vinyl releases), CD releases, t-shirts, books and more are made exclusively for the day.

Record Store Day is celebrated this year on Saturday, April 22nd 2017.

Keep in mind it’s a good idea to let your neighborhood record store what you might be looking for in advance. They can’t guarantee you will walk out with what you want, but it’s a good place to start.  All stores do not order all releases and they may not get everything they order. Record Store Day titles are limited for a number of reasons, and all in all, that’s a good thing.

Some great local Cleveland area stores to visit include My Minds Eye in Lakewood, Music Saves in the Waterloo Arts district,  Loop in Tremont,  as well as numerous The Exchange stores in Mentor, Cleveland Heights, North Olmsted, Lakewood and more.

This years special limited edition releases include 7, 10 and 12 inches from over a hundred artists, including a lot of previously unreleased material and first time vinyl issues.  Some highlights include (the support record stores, not flippers on every photo is just a watermark, not on final artwork):
