Vinyl junkies and collectors of rare pressings, get out your pen and set aside some time on April 21, 2018 for the 11th annual Record Store Day when record labels, independent artists, and others line up to release special editions, one-time pressings, and other limited-time goodies all in one day, driving higher than average foot traffic through your local record store doors.
