For some, it's the apex of their year. It's Record Store Day 2021 and this year, it comes to us in two parts: June 12 and July 17. The special releases for those of us who like Rock 'n Roll (actual, not what the Hall of Fame calls rock) should be a pretty good addition to our libraries. As always, you can find out more by visiting https://recordstoreday.com/ if you're curious what the mortals who listen to other types of music listen to, or want to know where to line up to hand over your money. Below is just a sample of what will be available.
