The fourth annual Record Store Day is Saturday, April 16, 2011. So get out there and buy some stuff. If you need pointers, Spin put together a list of 10 Must-Have Releases for Record Store Day. That list includes three releases that are close to my heart - the 13th Floor Elevators 7'' with a never-before-released song, the Daft Punk clear TRON vinyl, and The White Stripes' first two singles. It does however leave off the Record Store Day branded vinyl figure designed by FRANK KOZIK. If none of those strike your fancy, you can peep the full list of special releases right here. Or just watch this video of RSD founder Chris Brown showing off some of the goods:
