Record Store Day requires proper planning, similar to Black Friday. So now that Record Store Day has a special Black Friday event again this year, it only makes sense you'd need to prepare.
There aren't as many releases as Record Store Day in April but there are definitely reasons to shop. Highlights include Pearl Jam’s MTV Unplugged vinyl release, Tenacious D’s long-awaited Jack White collaboration, and The National’s new live album.
