It's Record Store Day!

21 APR 12 DAVID VIENNA

The nation celebrates Record Store Day today. During the annual event, people are encouraged to patronize local and boutique record stores all over the country. To further entice people to support their local record shop, Concord Music Group unveiled a handful of limited edition vinyl releases. These collector's items from artists such as Linda & Paul McCartney, Esperanza Spalding and Little Richard are only available at participating stores.

For the past couple of days, we've told you about vinyl releases from The Dave Brubeck Octet and the supergroup of Jay Farrar, Will Johnson, Anders Parker and Yim Yames. If vinyl versions from those artists weren't enough to get you to the store, you can also find the inimitable Esperanza Spalding's latest offering Radio Music Society in a double-vinyl package as well as a 7" vinyl single from Linda & Paul McCartney, "Another Day"/"Oh Woman Oh, Why." And if you really want to bring the house down, pick up the remastered Here's Little Richard from the Architect of Rock 'n' Roll himself. Oh, yeah, and it's on red vinyl.

So, get out there and support your local record shop. And expand your personal library with some awesome collector's items while you're at it.
