RECORD STORE DAY ANNOUNCES RELEASES FOR BLACK FRIDAY 2018
Some of the new vinyls will include a limited picture disc of Kyle Dixon and Michael Stein’s Stranger Things: Halloween Sounds Of The Upside Down, some live cuts from The Ramones, The Dave Matthews Band and Dio, a picture disc edition of Smashing Pumpkins’ Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1/LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun, and Weezer’s cover of “Africa” on a picture disc 10″ single in the shape of Africa.
RSD FIRST: These titles are found first at indie record stores, but may be released to other retailers or webstores at some point in the future.
SMALL RUN/REGIONAL LIST: These titles are either regionally based and sold at specific stores, or are press runs under 1000, which means they may be harder to find at record stores around the country. (If a title is regionally based and is not available throughout the country, it will say that in the description. The majority of titles on this section of the list are there because they have a limited run.)
Here’s a list of quick pointers about the sale from the Record Store Day site
*The titles on the Black Friday list are usually limited in number, as are most things that are created for special time periods or exclusive to certain retailers. This means a store may not get all the copies they wanted, or that a store may sell out of a release before you are able to purchase it.
*The artwork for the titles on the site is watermarked. Non-watermarked artwork will be in place when the titles are released, so those of you who want/need the artwork for your collections can access non-watermarked versions then.
*The list of titles may change. Titles may be added, titles may drop off, information may be amended.
