TOP TEN: Record Store Day, 2016

Viva la Vinyl.

Another RSDelight.

It’s another year, and another round of Record Store Day shopping is on the schedule today, April 16. The annual event is once again taking place all over the world, and the massive music fest is sure to bring out even more people than last year, so make it to your local store or stores early enough so that you don’t get caught behind the huge lines. With another diverse collection of exclusive CD and vinyl pieces across all genres and eras, there’s something for everyone, but quantities are limited.

In honor of the ninth national day, I’ve decided to highlight ten of my favorite vinyl-exclusive releases that you’ll be able to buy in stores very shortly. This year, I’m focused on more current releases and artists than last year, as you’ll see below. However, I may not be able to locate them all; indeed, the challenge is on. Searching high and low, far and wide, I’ll be on the hunt for great finds like these ten:
