The twelfth annual event takes place on Saturday 13th April, with 250 shops taking part in the UK – the largest number in the history of Record Store Day. You can search the list of participating shops here.
As ever, there’s a more than healthy reissue-to-new-release ratio. A few early stand-outs include: 4×12″ box set of acid house pioneers 808 State, soul singer Alice Clark’s self-titled LP and Lebanese disco rarity Abu Ali by Zaid Rahbani on WeWantSounds, the electric zouk of KASSAV from Guadeloupe, Basil Kirchin’s electronic experiments on Trunk Records, Fela Kuti & Roy Ayers’ Music Of Many Colours, and a 7″ box set for Aretha Franklin.
In terms of new music, noteworthy releases include Anderson .Paak, Idles, Slowthai, Moses Sumney and Iggy Pop.
There is also a good selection of soundtracks, with Lost In Translation, Malcolm X, the second season of Twin Peaks, Bohemian Rhapsody, and a brace of soundtracks written for dance by Sigur Rós leading the way.
And, as ever, RSD throws up a few oddities too, not least a recording of an interview with Salvador Dalí in Venice from 1961.
