Record Store Day

Record Store Day 2020

Johnny James, Managing Editor

Taking place on the 18 April 2020, Record Store Day brings together hundreds of the UK’s independent record shops to celebrate their unique culture. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and many shops host artist performances and events to mark the occasion. Whilst Piccadilly Records and Eastern Bloc are always at the forefront of Manchester’s RSD activities, there is a whole host of stores and venues with great offerings, including Vinyl Exchange, Vinyl Revival and Common.

This handy guide will give you the lowdown on what the best participating venues have planned for the big day. It will also give you an exclusive insight into what their staff members reckon the top three most exciting releases are this year!

Last year our pick of the exclusive releases were:

  1. Jeff Buckley – In Transition
  2. Olafur Arnalds – Re:member & String Quartets
  3. Bob Dylan – Blood On The Tracks – Original New York Test Pressing
