Record Store Day's Black Friday : Our pick of the best out on 23/11

Article written by Paul M - Oct 16, 2012

RSD-Black Friday
Following the huge successes over the last few years of April's annual Record Store Day, it was inevitable that some would see it as a chance to get collectors dipping into their pockets more often. So, it is with no surprise whatsoever, that the 23rd of November 2012 has now been rebranded Black Friday and will see dozens of, mainly old releases, repackaged and sold to us again. It's also no surprise that the labels involved are almost entirely the majors, and the acts they've focused on, chiefly the big players but once again only independent music retailers will be selling them so don't bother looking on Amazon or queueing up down Tescos. Additionally, there are some decent items lined up and we've picked out the most SoundsXP friendly. If you want the full list and details of b-sides etc, head over to the Record Store Day site.
