Every year, the organizers behind Record Store Day team up with record labels and independent shops to create special releases, exclusive to the day. Most of these items are limited edition, all the more to entice you to get up and head to your local mom-and-pop record store this Saturday, April 13th. This year's extensive list of limited edition vinyl, cassettes, box sets, reissues, and more features hundreds of releases, but KEXP's Kelsey Brannan, Afternoon Show Producer & Project Manager, has scoured the list to spotlight some of our faves. Check out the complete list here and some notable picks below.
