PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you might have surmised, not every single item will be available at every single retailer so this is where you get your friends in other locations involved in your quest and ask what they need in exchange for what you are looking for. Don’t scoff at the notion because you might be surprised at the results of some like minded teamwork. Be advised that those who arrive first are often those that leave with the best stuff that is coming out for Record Store Day. Now I’m not the biggest LP collector these days but sometimes I embark on a quest to get one of the things that piques my interest the most and there are a few notables in this run down as you can see. A more complete list of the whole shebang can be found via the website link below and I suggest you download the PDF to your mobile device and bring your charger along with you just in case you run short on the power when its most needed. Happy hunting and let me know what you are most interested in securing a copy of for this years event.
