With RZA, Miles Davis, Mobb Deep, and more.
Here we go again… After emerging from your turkey fugue and family feuds – or, just another Thursday if you’re anywhere outside of the USA – the fuzzy embrace of Record Store Day is back.
Taking place on Friday 26th November, RSD’s ‘Black Friday’ 2021 offerings, the little cousin to its main events earlier in the year, return with hundreds of releases on offer.
As with previous instalments, these exclusives heavily feature reissues fare. There is also a striking dearth of female artists in this year’s list, perhaps more so than any year in recent memory.
Mindful of this, we’ve selected highlights from the 157 exclusives available in the US, and 86 in the UK.
Check out our selections below, and head here to delve into the lists in full.
