Record Store Day is now in its sixth year of existence. Throughout its six years, it has garnered more and more interest as vinyl sales numbers continue to ramp up in a world that seems to be going more and more digital. In addition to being a day to celebrate record stores with special sales, m0re and more bands and artists have been creating limited edition releases specifically for sale at record stores on this hallowed day. In its first year, there was only about ten special releases. Last year featured over 400 different limited edition Record Store Day releases. This year promises to be the best yet with even more releases as well as having the always enthusiastic Jack White at the helm as the Offical Record Store Day Ambassador of 2013. He has been quite busy doing some really incredible things in preparation for this day. You can check out the full list of releases for this year here. So be sure to get out there to support your local record store and treat yourself to something special!
