Record Store Day Plans Black Friday Releases
Posted on October 24, 2011There will be a round of Record Store Day releases on Black Friday this year. A Record Store Day FAQ says there will be about 35 unique releases on Black Friday.
Billboard reports that some of this years releases include a vinyl singles box from the Beatles as well as vinyl singles from the Byrds, Black Keys, Dr. Dog and Ryan Adams. Hitfix lists a few more, including vinyls from the Beastie Boys, Nirvana, The Doors and Tom Petty.Record Store Day will only be releasing about 10% of the number of releases for Black Friday as compared to Record Store Day itself. For example, there were approximately 300 unique releases made for Record Store Day this year. For Black Friday there will be about 35. By design, Record Store Day is not attempting to create the massive music celebration of Record Store Day. Rather, we are reminding music fans about the gift of music at the kick off of the holiday season. We will call it a victory if less cheap toasters and socks are given as gifts and more awesome music by some of the greatest artists of our time exchange hands.
You can find all of the Black Friday releases on the Record Store Day website.
