So how was Record Store Day for you? Lots of unique music releases from some major bands…

So Record Store Day took place yesterday (Saturday 17 April 2010). Did you support your local independent record store? It seems that this event is gaining a lot of support. I didn’t realise the extent of the support from major artists until today. There were some amazing record collectables to be had from the likes of:

Many thanks to Rock Radio for this list.

Looking at this list, I think next year’s Record Store Day will see even more great releases. In the meantime, your local independent record store is for life, not just for Record Store Day. If you’re a music lover, please support your local independent music retailer all year round.
