Record Store Day 2016… It’s Here!

Published on

Record Store Day 2016 Logo

It’s that time of year again: queues round the block; anxious crate-diggers hoping their “must have” of the year is still in stock; the inevitable overspend followed by buyer’s guilt…

But when you get home and put the needle to the groove, it will all have been worth it. Record Store Day comes but once a year, but it’s the gift that keeps on giving to hardcore music fans who think nothing of cancelling all other engagements, setting the alarm before daybreak and joining the hordes that have, over the years, supported independent record stores and made it an increasingly amazing event across the world.

From in-store gigs to out-there sounds, coloured vinyl and exclusive box sets, there’s something for everyone – and 2016’s Record Store Day is no exception. After all, with thrash legends Metallica as its ambassadors (they’re releasing super deluxe box sets of their first two albums, Kill ’Em All and Ride The Lightning, along with an exclusive RSD live album, Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité, Metallica!), how could it be anything else?

For a primer, tuck into our Record Story Day 2016 playlist, and scroll down for a list of some of the best booty on offer this year.
