In its 11th year, the annual event is celebrated by stores around the world including our two local record stores, Going Underground and World Records. The limited edition items are often colored vinyl, are numbered, and have special packaging.

The increase in record sales are driven mostly be a re-release of classic albums.

Rage Against the Machine's disc marks the vinyl debut of their 2000 performance outside the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles.

For the record, vinyl is alive and well, in part thanks to events like Record Store Day. "It started out about eleven years ago with a small number of limited edition releases just for that day", Daddy Kool Records Operator Manny Kool said.

"It has grown ridiculously over the years and we have actually had people with lawn chairs outside waiting for us to open at 10 a.m.", said Bayliss.

Back when Record Store Day began, Jon Lambert never imagined the event would be such a hit with collectors. That tradition stuck, and in the years since, artists like Ozzy Osbourne and Iggy Pop have been record store day ambassadors.

McGlothin owned the store from 2012 to 2014 but still goes by the shop at least once a week. "All of my favorite artists release vinyls every time they put out new music, and I have bought a turntable for those records".

"It has a tangible quality", he said. With a cassette or CD, you can press play and walk away. They'll be teaming up with their neighbours, The Old Bookshop and The Old Butchers to deliver a gorgeous weekend of records, music food and drink. "That wasn't happening in our society ... connecting with the band, reading the lyrics, and now younger kids, they feel something". You can see how it works", said Vinyl Junkies' landlord Sam Chammas, who also owns the Whistle Stop bar across the street and had stopped by for music fix."With all of these screens we look at every day, it's rad to be able to take a break from the battery life.

The Flaming Lips. The band collaborated with Dogfish Head Craft Brewery on a special Record Store Day Band project including a 7-inch single with songs The Story of Yum Yum and Dragon and Pouring Beer in Your Ear, composed by frontman Wayne Coyne. "Even if you don't identify with that, to see a bunch of people in a tiny shop milling around, thumbing through records, hanging out talking, engaging with each other, it gives off a vibe of an art exhibit".
