Out spilled Grateful Dead boxed sets, Jimi Hendrix 45s and AC/DC cassettes - and dozens more albums and 45s - all to be affixed with price tags Tuesday and Wednesday and, on Friday night, placed in bins.

Record Store Day launched in the United Kingdom in 2008, a year after it had premiered in the US.

"I think it really comes back to that appreciation for a deeper experience with the artist", Skarecky said. This song, for all its progressive rock intricacies and melancholy, has seen me through some of the toughest moments of the past decade of my life. Their advice: "Find a store near you and check with them directly". This unique single includes a Sunset Sound Mix of Led Zeppelin IV's "Rock and Roll" and "Friends" from Led Zeppelin III recorded at Olympic Studios, London. She started her collection with her dad's records - original records from The Temptations and Motown, the music her dad grew up listening to. The limited edition run of "Juicy" the first single from the legendary debut album Ready to Die, is back on vinyl for the first time since its 1994 release and only 9,000 copies will be made available worldwide. I want to say it was probably around 2011.

Before that, the store will open from 9am with Pity of the Sea first on stage, followed by Windings, Zombie Picnic, Flag Listeners, Paddy Hanna and Inner City Radio. "It still exists and I think for the fact of what Record Store Day has become it has nourished the growth of the record store and is on the rise".

"We usually open up two hours early, and there's definitely a lineup", said Jeff Conklin of Academy Records, at 415 E. 12th St. Buying vinyl is about enjoying the packaging - unwrapping the album, studying the album cover art, holding the disc, and collecting different formats, such as multi-colored discs and alternative covers.

"We are going to be celebrating our 43rd year in September", said Alayna Alderman, Record Archive co-owner. "That's going to help a lot".

With so many great titles being released on the day we have very carefully each picked just one of our top titles being released.

The shop carries both new and used vinyl, CDs and other merchandise, with a focus on relevancy. It has increased our contact with music lovers through out the region, allowed us to build our network of musicians locally and nationally, promote music and playing music to people that hadn't considered playing an instrument.

For Record Store Day, this year's slate of releases features a wide spread of genres, Lambert said.

Some 82% of the album's sales in independent record shops over the past year were on vinyl.

"Vinyl sales are still strong".

Even though the album came out in 1996, vinyl records weren't being released in large quantities.

We will be participating in the official Record Store Day celebration, including tons of exclusive limited product, free swag bags and lots of perks all day long.

Keith Wildman, owner of the Record Café, said: "It's been a really busy day".

"It's always the biggest day of the year", he said. On Facebook, somebody posted that it's nothing but a money grab.

Paul Doege has owned Recycled Records since 1980. There were other record stores that could do that.

"Every time we do a vinyl edition for any of our acts, it sells out. We have hundreds of people here at the end of the day". Things will have a street release date of whenever, and sometimes it'll be late or I'll order records and they'll come before they come out, and then I just hold them until they're supposed to be released.
