The countdown feature on the official Record Store Day website shows there are 43 days until RSD 2019 takes place. But as of today, the list of one-day only vinyl treasures that will be available on April 13 is available to view or download. As usual, the selection sweeps across multiple genres, from Disney Songs The Satchmo Way by Louis Armstrong to Live At The Palladium by The Ramones. You’ll find new songs, reissues, and oddball collaborations on various size records in the jazz, blues, classic rock, folk, punk, and soul categories.
Over in the U.K., they give the Record Store Day List Launch a proper celebration, with several stores offering live band performances, DJs and refreshments throughout today. Their list varies from the American one, and in some ways, seems more interesting. I haven’t seen any mention of List Launch bashes stateside, but there’s sure to be plenty on the actual Record Store Day. Be on the lookout for any announcements from your local store and your favorite bands. In the meantime, you can view the upcoming releases on the RSD site and figure out which ones you’ll be waiting in line for come April 13.
