Record Store Day’s Oddest Releases: the Good, the Bad, and the Huh?


Record Store Day will be upon us this Saturday (April 19), and with it we await the glorious multitudes of limited-edition exclusive releases that’ll be sure to leave people in a blissful music-coma for days following. Serious vinyl fans likely read various publications’ guides to Record Store Day releases to anticipate: rarities to cherish (like the hard-to-find Joy Division debut), reissued classics, and indie treasures. Here we thought we’d do something a little different, presenting, rather, the utterly unexpected. Indeed, here you’ll find both shrewd innovations in music curation… and also some purely questionable stuff, from Ron Jeremy (yes, that Ron Jeremy) to David Lynch.
