Record Store Day Black Friday 2015
The official list of Record Store Black Friday Special Releases is out!
Record Store Day falls on April 3rd, but the organizers still like to get in on the Black Friday fun. Music fans of all ages look forward to Record Store Day every year because usually there are dozens of exclusive, limited-edition LPs up for grabs. Record Store Day has participated in Black Friday for a few years now. At BFAds HQ we have quite a few musicians and music fans on our team, so we always look forward to seeing this list.
The list is broken down into three sections. EXCLUSIVES are only available at participating indie record stores. SMALL RUN vinyl has less than 1,000 copies available - which makes them very hard to find and that much more special. RSD FIRST titles are debuting on Record Store Day, but eventually they'll be available elsewhere.
Here are some of our favorites:
- Dreams 12" Vinyl - Beck (Exclusive)
- Halo I-IV 4 x 12" Vinyl Set - Nine Inch Nails (Exclusive)
- Stankonia 2 x LP - Outkast (Exclusive)
- TV Set 10" Vinyl - Spoon (Exclusive)
- Earthling LP - David Bowie (Exclusive)
- Merry Muthaphuckkin' Xmas 7" Vinyl - Eazy-E (Exclusive)
- Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen (Exclusive)
- Animals As Leaders 2 x LP - Animals As Leaders (Limited Run)
- Burning Desire 2 x LP - Jimi Hendrix (First Release)
- True Detective Soundtrack 2 x LP - Various Artists (Exclusive)
- EP - Get Up Kids (Exclusive)
Keep in mind that record stores are not required to participate in this event, so make sure you call and double-check with your favorite shop before getting your hopes up. Almost every title featured in this list is limited-release, which means that not every title will be at every store - especially since stores stock their own inventory. If you're only interested in one special release, you should contact your local indie record store and plan on getting in line early.
