The day vinyl collectors and record enthusiasts all clamor over is finally here! Stop by Academy Records this Saturday, April 19th for Record Store Day! This special celebration gives vinyl collectors the unique opportunity to browse a wide variety of original promotional material from both classic and contemporary artists in music stores across the nation.
Academy Records is one the few record stores in New York City selected to participate in this exciting event, and is a special location for collectors to pick up exclusively released material. Unlike previous years, this year’s Record Store Day will feature geographically specific release material, in some cases limiting the release material to just a few 1,000 items available on the East Coast. This means, avid collectors need to get to this East Village record store early to pick up the rarest pressings.
Check out material from these participating artists:
- Selections from Play All Night: Live at the Beacon Theatre 1992 by The Allman Brothers
- The Lake Nokomis Maxi Single by Atmosphere
- Take it or Leave it by Cage the Elephant
- Side by Side Series by The Cure/ Dinosaur Jr. (pictured right)
- The 1969 Singles by Creedence Clearwater Revival
- Dragonfly/The Purple Dancer by Fleetwood Mac
