The Rolling Stones, Ben Folds with yMusic, Jimi Hendrix and New Vinyl
Record Store Day Black Friday is celebrating the holidays with 150 new titles released across independent record stores in the United States.
Black Friday is commonly known for sales on electronics and other big ticket items early in the morning following Thanksgiving.
A more recent trend developing is the demand for vinyl music within independent record stores. Each April, Record Store Day celebrates a day where musicians release vinyl records only to independent record stores across the world.
Record Store Day Black Friday extends the concept of providing new vinyl to indie record stores with a stocked list of new music. Locate the participating stores here.
This year, we cover some of the records being released on #RSDBF.
