On the official Record Store Day site, they have a disclaimer that states, “There are a lot of independent stores that participate in Record Store Day. Not all of them will choose to participate in all promotions, or carry all releases. Just because a store is listed here does NOT mean it will have the goodie or record you’re looking for. That said, find a store near you and check with them directly. It’s always a good idea to be BFFs with your neighborhood record store.”

Get there early, call around, and have a blast! Happy listening!
