Record Store Day is upon...just 30 days away until the greatest music day of the year. For some reason, they're dicking around with the U.S. release list. They've already announced all the releases for the U.K., which you can check out here. I'm not sure what the delay is...basically the releases for the U.K. and the U.S. are practically identical. And they add new titles every couple days leading up to the date. Not sure what they're waiting on. Part of the excitement of Record Store Day is the anticipation. Getting to pick through the list and check out every new available title is almost as exciting as getting home and listening to the music. The longer they wait to announce the releases...the less time we have to do our research. And every one knows, audiophiles having nothing else to do with our lives except sit around and do useless research. The U.K. list is interesting. Not as exciting as last years...but still a few nuggets in there. Maybe the big hitters are yet to come. April 21, 2012...here we come!!!
