Record Store Day 2021 is rapidly approaching and there are some very exciting releases coming which will be separated out over the two drop dates in June and July.
Check out the list of titles coming to record stores as part of RSD Drops, in a pretty web view with details or a striking PDF version, and start making your wishlists. Follow your favorite local record store on social media as well, because a lot of them really want to hear what kinds of things you’re interested in!
RSD 2020 was a success; minor miracle considering there was a global pandemic going on.
Record Store Day 2021 will certainly require some patience once again due to local rules; you will certainly have to wear a mask to shop inside local retailers.
But RSD 2021 is almost here and we’re really excited about some of the releases.
We can’t emphasize enough the importance of supporting your local record store and keeping the momentum going as we emerge from the pandemic in many parts of the U.S., Canada, and parts of Europe.
Standing in line doesn’t appeal to a lot of people right now, but we’re hopeful that as vaccination rates increase, people will feel safer about participating this year.
You can always wait for some of these great albums to appear on Discogs or Amazon but you know what that means in terms of pricing. Prepare to be fleeced by people who purchase multiple copies of certain albums in order to flip them for huge profits.
