Record Store Day is like the Black Friday of the music industry. Love it or hate it, RSD is a great opportunity to add to your vinyl collection. Participating stores in Toronto will be hosting a great selection of live music performances, sales and, of course, ever-coveted Record Store Day exclusive releases.
If you’re willing to skip the snooze button and brave the crowds, RSD 2015 promises to be a good one. Though the annual celebration has received some controversy in the past few years, namely from small labels, there is no denying that music fans and vinyl enthusiasts will be able to uncover great finds and add some exceptional exclusives to their library.
Record Store Day has published a complete list of all the specials that will be available on April 18th, which you can find here: http://recordstoreday.com/SpecialReleases, but we’ve compiled a small list of some of our favourite exclusive releases for RSD 2015.
