Hey Backbeaters! As you may have seen, this week Record Store Day dropped the list for the upcoming RSD Black Friday releases coming on November 26th. We absolutely want to hear from YOU as to what you’d like to see us try and bring in from the list, we won’t stock every release but your input ensures that we are bringing in what YOU want.
Remember, these releases are usually super limited and we won’t always receive them or the quantity that we order. We will of course provide a list of what will be in stock at Backbeat on Black Friday the day before.

Not sure what Record Store Day or RSD Black Friday is? Here’s a little 411 from the Record Store Day website.
Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The first Record Store Day took place on April 19, 2008. Today there are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.
We work year-round to shine a light on the independent businesses in your local community that sell you records and other things that make you happy, make you smile, make you sing, bring you comfort, bring people together (with proper safety protocols in place, of course!). This year that has felt more important than ever, as local businesses of all kinds face unprecedented challenges, and we’ve been so happy to see how you’ve all supported them. Everything you find in a record store (or on a record store’s website) would make a great gift for someone, so in this year when the holiday season may be a little strange, but also a little special, and it may feel even better to wrap up and give a little something to someone, helping record stores be a part of that ‘shopping season’ makes more sense to us than ever.
