It’s that special time of year again - Record Store Day! (Tomorrow April 20th) When you get to do good in your neighbourhood and keep your local record store alive. My favourites are still Phonica on Poland Street, Sister Ray on Berwick Street, and the HMV Flagship on Oxford Street, but I occasionally pop into all the stores in my local area, as featured on the map below:
Other notable stores in the London area are the Rough Trade West and Rough Trade East twins - the former just off Portobello Road at 130 Talbot Road, and the latter at 91 Brick Lane.
For this year, I will be keeping an eye out for the following 10 and 12 inch platters specially released for RSD (in alphabetical order):

Happy shopping - and keep music alive!
