Like, well, everything in 2020 this year’s Record Store Day has gad a different plan.
The main day itself was originally scheduled to take place back in April, but it was postponed and split into three separate days spaced roughly a month apart in order to maintain CODID-19 directives.
This year’s first Record Store Day took place on August 29, also Saturday September 26 and the upcoming 3rd and final RSD drop which will take place on October 24th – and while there won’t be quite as much music available as previous drops, there’s still plenty of choice cuts to snap up.
Record Store Day full lists can be found here.
