Record Store Day 2023: dates, full vinyl release list and our top picks

The resurgence of vinyl sales since a low point in 2013 has been great news for die-hard music lovers everywhere. Some of the credit for today’s very welcome (and impressively persistent) ‘vinyl revival’, as it’s been coined, must go to initiatives such as Record Store Day, an annual celebration that champions vinyl, and all those who sell, collect and enthuse about the once-endangered format.

In the organisation’s own words, RSD is “a day for the people who make up the world of the independent record store – the staff, the customers and the artists – to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities.” Now isn’t that wonderful?
