  • Old-school sound Record Store Day celebrates vinyl with specials, live music

Record Store Day is noted for limited releases, or pressings, of certain records.

Beginning on Record Store Day, the folks at Friendly Records in Bristol have chose to make it "Record Store Weekend" with live performances from Snails, Alex Lipinski and Olive Haigh. The annual event is now in its 11th year with hundreds of stores participating.

The third Saturday of every April is Record Store Day and to celebrate people in La Crosse gathered to play music of their own.

Ella Fitzgerald. The two-LP set Ella Live at Zardi's, released past year, can be had on jazzy pink and blue vinyl. Most of the records have a limited production run that is typically between 100 and 5,000 pieces.

Grimey's has a long history and reputation as one of the United States' finest independent record stores, and for good reason.

The day is a celebration of the brick and mortar store, and the atmosphere is festive.

"People love the sound of the wheel", Marsh said.

In the digital age, Lambert said people are seeking out experiences that make them feel more connected.

"The biggest thing we hear from older people coming in is, 'I gave away all my records and I regret it.'" Howarth said. Last year, sales of vinyl LPs accounted for $395 million, up 10% over 2016, Recording Industry Association of America says.

"I love Record Store Day not only because of the fun, exclusive releases that come out, but especially because it helps bring a large group of vinyl lovers to the store at one time", said Vinyl Revival owner Andrea DiFabio. Classic rock and indie-rock comprise the majority of the releases, but the offerings also include rap, soul, jazz, techno, country, folk, metal and more. Wax Trax will be carrying as many vinyl releases as it can cram on the shelves. Also available: the soundtrack to the 1991 film Rush, available for the first time on vinyl.

As the sales of vinyl records continue to grow, Record Store Day is a great way to get into collecting and supporting small businesses all at the same time.

Other featured musicians include Dylan & the Dead, Neil Young, Courtney Barnett, Prince, The Cure, The National, The Sundays, and Eno.

Park Ave CDs opens at 8 a.m. on Record Store Day, and the list of RSD-branded releases is extensive and diverse, ensuring that stores and customers can choose the special releases of most interest to them. Re-Animated Records in La Mesa will open at 7 a.m. with free food and drinks and a big 20 percent off sale. To cap off the day, Dharmasoul will perform a family friendly in-store show at 6 p.m. "It was an easy decision for us, a city without a record store would be a place I wouldn't want people to live in".
