Established in 2010 with a focus on exclusive vinyl, RSD’s Black Friday event features a combination of new music and reissues.

Seventy-eight releases will be on sale, with highlights including the debut LP from Madlib’s jazz project Jahari Massamba Unit, an instrumentals version of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Return to the 36 Chambers, an obligatory Studio One compilation and several soulful singles by Norma Jean, amongst others.

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, this year’s annual Record Store Day, previously taking place annually in April, was postponed and split across three drop days.

Despite this change, vinyl sales hit record highs in 2020, – with the highest week of US vinyl sales coinciding with the first RSD drop day in August.
