Saturday Is Record Store Appreciation Day [PHOTOS]

VINYL! (Craig Allen photo).

Whether you prefer the “warm” sound that only comes from a vinyl record, or the crisp perfection of an “album” on compact disc, this Saturday, April 19th, is the day for you!

This coming Saturday will mark the “7th Annual National Record Store Appreciation Day.”

Its a celebration of everything that surrounds the more than 700 independently owned record stores in the United States (and many more taking part around the world).

The day (always the third Saturday in April) can feature live music, also official record store day promotional giveaways, and record deals that can only be found in the indie stores!

HUNDREDS of limited edition albums are being featured, including singles from “Jersey’s Favorite Artists” including Bruce Springsteen, The Doors and Fleetwood Mac!
