Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.

This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day. There are festivities such as performances, meets & greets, and DJ’s spinning records.

In 2010, Record Store Day coordinated its first RSD Black Friday event, which gives record stores exclusive releases as part of the attempt to redirect the focus of the biggest shopping day of the year to the desirable, special things to be found at local stores.

This year’s Record Store Day Black Friday takes place on Nov. 25, 2022 and includes exclusive releases, limited runs, and first releases. Check out the list below and plan your trip to your local record store!

E = Exclusive Release: These titles are physically released only at indie record stores.
L = Limited Run / Regional Focus Release: These titles are either regionally based and sold at specific stores, or are press runs under 1000, which means they may be harder to find at record stores around the country.
F = RSD First Release: These titles are found first at indie record stores but may be released to other retailers or webstores at some point in the future.
