Record Store Day 2011

Record Store Day was created in 2007 as a way of drawing attention – and much-needed sales – to brick-and-mortar independent music shops. The celebration has grown bigger each year, with more stores getting involved as labels and artists both great and small offer exclusive limited-edition releases to independent shops participating in the event. This year's Record Store Day falls on Saturday, April 16th. An overwhelming number of new releases and reissues will hit shelves that day, so we've picked out the 20 most exciting Record Store Day exclusives for you to focus on.
