Er..thanks Ozzy! As we’re keen to point out, it’s Record Store Day every day around these parts but nevertheless it’s that time of year once again when record shops get to showcase what they do best and remind people that music doesn’t just arrive in cardboard cartons from Amazon or down your broadband.
Once again there is a huge list of exclusive collectable items and rarities that will only be available in participating stores on the day. The list is here in full on the Record Store Day website
This year four local shops are taking part, Piccadilly Records, Eastern Bloc, X Records in Bolton and Beatin’ Rhythm so there will be plenty of queues to join to get your hands on some of the exclusive goodies. The queues at Piccadilly in particular were right round the block last year so get there early if you want to bag your desired items. Remember to check with the individual shops to find out which items they’ll be offering.
If you’re coming to Manchester specially for the day don’t forget to check out some of our other fab record stores while you’re in town.
