You don't have to be a serious vinyl collector to enjoy the Record Store Day experience. To be sure, it's the catalyst for a lot of pleasant memories for those of us who used to take the neighborhood record store for granted back when there was no Amazon, no Best Buy, no iTunes or Spotify. And if you missed that experience back in the day, RSD is as close to time travel as you can get.
Classic rock artists were among the first to support and promote Record Store Day when it began back in 2008, and one of its main features is the availability of releases -- exclusive to participating stores -- of vintage music of many genres, classic rock chief among them. More than two dozen exclusive classic rock vinyl releases await.
Save the date: Saturday, April 19 at your neighborhood indie record store.
