Record Store Day 2016: The Ultimate Guide

From vintage Bowie singles to a Hello Kitty picture disc, here are the best releases of this year's event



This is a banner year for the too-much-TV crowd. Rhino is releasing mono versions of the Monkees' "Saturday's Child" and "You Just May Be the One" pressed on vinyl shaped like their iconic guitar logo. The Dr. Who audiobook Genesis of the Daleks – first printed in 1978 and based on the six-part 1975 serial – will get a reissue on "Tardis blue vinyl." And two of Disney's popular Silly Symphonies, 1929's "The Skeleton Dance" and 1933's Oscar-winning "Three Little Pigs" will be featured on opposite sides of a 10-inch.

Ever wanted to hear Ethan Hawke sing? If you don't feel like sitting through all 97 minutes of Born to be Blue, you can grab a 45-rpm record of him doing his best Chet Baker on "My Funny Valentine" and "I've Never Been In Love Before" – pressed like a vintage Atco single. And Hello Kitty: Hello World, a pop tribute to the cartoon cat, will be re-released with 1,000 copies of a very colorful picture disc.
