There are many late additions and price changes. We’ll update it as we go. Aren’t sure? – please contact recordstoreday@pieandvinyl.co.uk, and we’ll confirm or deny any rumours!

IMPORTANT: PLEASE VIEW OUR RULES & TIPS HERE TO UNDERSTAND HOW RECORD STORE DAY WORKS

*We are 8 years old now, and support every label and distributor in the UK all year around. We have recently been shortlisted for the Music Week Independent Record Shop of the year, so must be doing something right!

SO we can expect a very good level of stock of everything. With your help, we can sift through those 500 odd titles, and make sure we order lots of what you are after!

When we have received your request, we will add the title to our buying list and make darn sure that there will be stock available in our store.

***A note on the pricing for Record Store Day – As many regulars know, we aim to offer the lowest prices and the highest standard of experience. We never mark our prices up; our standard margin is applied to all stock at all times of the year.

We want to attract new friends who support us regularly in the shop, the very reason that Record Store Day exists!

We’ll also have free gifts for EVERY person that queues, (We have been saving up all year) Ranging from Test Pressings & Promo’s to T-shirts, posters and key rings!

We’ve also asked our amazing label friends to donate a few special items. For this, we’ll hold a raffle where every person that purchases something, will be in with a chance to win something unique and desirable.

Every person that purchases a record store title will also get 10% off our regular stock that day. So, fill your boots.

We will also have a stage outside the shop, featuring some incredible live performances, along with a street market. We will talk about this separately, as it’s all too much tight? But, THE CASTLE ROAD RECORD STORE DAY CELEBRATION IS BACK! We can’t wait.

We’ll also continue to sell any stock left over from Sunday onward. So if you are busy Saturday, fear not!

Please continue to consult www.recordstoreday.co.uk  for details of all official UK releases.

*Don’t be confused with the recordstoreday.com version, this is the U.S.A. release list, and they differ*

Also – listen to BBC 6 Music for updates and good times. They will be sponsoring the event this year. Thank goodness for that. Visit: www.bbc.co.uk/6music

Record Store Day 2020 at Pie&Vinyl – Rules & Tips for Fun Times – *Please Read*

For those who are new to Record Store Day, and a recap for those who treat the annual celebration as a type of Birthday/Christmas/Wedding Day/birth of son and daughter all rolled in to one…please find some very important information on how we will roll on the big day.

Ok, we’ve called them rules but please see them as positives gestures, which helps everyone have a really great Record Store day! Read on for a few tips also…

P&V RSD RULES (Positive Gestures)

  • We will open our doors on the big day at 8am sharp (Maybe before if we can, but we can’t sell a thing until 8am). People are welcome to queue in an orderly fashion from approx. a week before then. We will close at 7pm on the day, and open on the Sunday at 11am so people can pick the bones.
  • First come first served. We really mean it. We adhere to RSD and ERA rulings, which state that we can’t reserve anything for anyone (Including animals and robots). Damn right too! What kind of cherished event would RECORD STORE DAY be if people could reserve records or buy online? You need to earn that LIMITED must have…this isn’t downloading, it doesn’t come easy, but the rewards are totally worth it and you will feel like a champion! You can however request what you are after and build a wish list, which will help us order the correct amount of stock. Just emailrecordstoreday@pieandvinyl.co.uk – with your requests 

Official List info HEREh

  • ONE COPY OF EACH OFFICIAL RSD RELEASE PER CUSTOMER. You can buy as many records as your bank manager allows, but please don’t try and purchase two or more of the same thing, as we will not sell them to you. This will mean everyone will have a chance to get what they want. From Sunday (the day after) The rules will be relaxed, any stock left and in any quantity will be up for grabs.
  • We’ll be letting 30 people into the store at any one time. It will be one in one out from then on. Although we are larger, we have to respect the people who have queued for hours and give them a fair crack at purchasing what they have nearly died for. We are a larger beast these days, but still small and perfectly formed. We don’t want to see any crushes/fistfights/passion for music being compromised. We will play it by ear as the day goes on, and as soon as we feel it is safe to let more punters in, we shall do. By putting the above rules into place, this will mean that everyone should be able to purchase at least something they desire at any point during the day. *For regular stock, please enter the other door as there will be no fixed limit.

*Please don’t be put off if you don’t fancy standing in a queue. This is why we employ the rules above, so that everyone gets a fair crack at buying what they want:)

Many people were still finding bits they wanted at in the afternoon last year. We want to make this as fair as possible and look after you regular customers as well as welcoming new ones*

There may be quite a few late additions, or titles you have heard are being released but not on the RSD list. Rest assured, if it’s an official RSD UK release, we will have a chance to stock it.

We are confident that we will receive large amounts of stock, and certainly as much as we are allowed to lay our furry paws on. But do remember, that some of these items are super limited (in some cases only 150 items for the whole country) so depending on total quantity available, we will get as much as we are sent.

To request any title – please e mail recordstoreday@pieandvinyl.co.uk

See HERE for release list and P&V prices.

TIPS FOR THE BIG DAY

Remember, this is as much about the experience as it is the records! (Well, we try and make it so anyway…)

The first customers on the big day have usually earned the right, by queuing for quite some time. If there is something you really, really want – Plan to get there really, really early.

If you are going to queue, bring a good chair, some blankets and maybe some beer…

This may sound funny, but you get to meet some really like-minded souls, standing in line. There is a really special atmosphere and team spirit in the queue…and when that door opens, you won’t have felt excitement quite like it! Friends for life and a triumphant atmosphere all round!

We’ll be providing FREE Tea, Coffee, Biscuits and reading material throughout the night. We’ll also be running our quiz with prizes to entertain you!

Bring plenty of cash – there will be a cash only till in action on the day to help serve you as swiftly as possible.

Make sure you get to enjoy the street market and our incredible outdoor stage – more information HERE (announced soon)

Keep up to date by visiting and ‘liking’ our social pages, and sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know stuff.

FREE Breakfast for all queuers…

With all this no sleep, queuing lark – Rest assured, we want you fighting fit when you finally get to touch those promised pieces of shellac. You need to eat, to be strong to face the final hurdle…a Bowie 7’’ or the complete Vengaboys collection? We can’t have you going hungry now…

We’ll be offering all the classics, toast, pastry bakes, cereals, fruits, juices, tea, coffee – etc.etc. Imagine you are at the breakfast bar in Butlins.

You may even be served by a hilarious fancy dressed person, on roller skates, hoping to lift your morning blues.

Food and drinks will also be served throughout the day from our outside pie pop up stall, (look out for some delicious music-related pie specials) With beer available too.

BASICALLY, WE WANT YOU TO HAVE THE BEST EXPERIENCE – HELP US BY FOLLOWING THESE POSITIVE GESTURES, AND THE MAGIC WILL REVEAL ITSELF.

See you soon!

Lots of Love, the P&V Referee x

The recently announced #loverecordstores event, which will take place on Saturday June 20th, has announced the first of the many special releases that will be available to music fans.

To ensure that this hugely important, annual opportunity to highlight the work of record stores remains active this summer, #loverecordstores is partnering with a wide range of record labels who have already pledged to make special, limited edition releases available via over 130 independent record stores’ online platforms on June 20th.

To coincide with the Love Record Stores online performances and DJ sets, a number of special releases will be made available to buy at participating stores websites from 9am on June 20th. With a diverse range of artists and labels involved there is sure to be something that will interest everyone but you’ll have to be quick on the keyboard as there are only limited quantities available. As the releases have had to be put together in relatively short space of time there is still potential for some additions to the list, watch this space!

Record Store Day 2020 official releases to be split across 3 dates to support independent record shops.

29th April 2020: In 2020, the world is a different place. And for that reason, Record Store Day has had to adapt to fit into this different place.

Record Store Day will unfortunately no longer be taking place on June 20th.

Instead, the titles on the RSD 2020 official list will be available from independent record shops on one of the three following RSD “Drop” Dates: Saturday 29th August, Saturday 26th September and Saturday 24th October.

A new version of “The List” with assigned release dates will be launched on 1st June and updates will be found on recordstoreday.co.uk and the RSD social media accounts.

Record Store Day 2020, originally scheduled for April 18 was bound to look and feel different from any of the previous twelve. Prior events have been as much about the gatherings, parties, concerts and “group hang” element of a celebration as the financial bonus for the record shops.

However, in this unprecedented situation, the focus of these three RSD Drop dates is on supporting the stores, as well as the artists, labels, distribution and every other business behind the scenes making record stores work. 

Record Store Day organizers have looked at numerous possible dates and various ways to re-work an event that takes place at thousands of record stores around the world, taking into consideration the varying circumstances and situations they and their customers might find themselves in at any point this year.

This current RSD 2020 plan to spread the spotlight and the support over three months, was made with as much available information as possible, and gives the largest number of stores a chance to participate globally in the strangest Record Store Day ever. RSD will be using the guidance of government and scientific experts to ensure these RSD Drop dates are as socially responsible and safe for all involved as possible. Don’t necessarily expect all the normal in-store celebrations and events as these changes have been made to allow customers to get the RSD product safely in a socially distanced world. Our RSD online rules will be adapted in due course in line with retail developments.

To clarify, this year online rules have changed so that shops in the UK can sell online from 6pm. Selling online is a shop by shop decision and will be dependent on the status of the pandemic at the time of these three dates. This is new to all of us and very new to the shops. They are still figuring how to best make this work in the safest and fairest way. They will communicate how they intend to sell these records closer to the time as this is a fast-moving and ever-changing situation.

Fingers crossed for the return of the biggest party of the year on the third Saturday of April 2021. RSD Black Friday is still being planned and is scheduled to take place on November 27 

We are aware that this is an ever-changing situation that brings new challenges every day. Please check www.recordstoreday.co.uk for updates. 

Love Record Stores – 20th June (#LRS)

New website www.loverecordstores.com  launched to promote blog posts, articles and photo stories from independent record stores and the people who work in them

Tim Burgess Announced as Love Record Stores Ambassador

Labels Plan “Dozens” of Exclusive Releases on June 20th

#saveourvenues to Benefit from T-Shirt Profits

Love Record Stores (#LRS), which will take place on Saturday June 20th, has announced Tim Burgess as its ambassador, with The Charaltans frontman playing a key role in curating activities around the event.

Tim,  who has been extremely active during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown and whose nightly ‘Tim’s Twitter Listening Party,’ has attracted a huge social media following, is a passionate advocate of independent record stores and the author of the acclaimed ‘Tim Book Two – Vinyl Adventures from Istanbul to San Francisco,’ an ode to record shopping.

#LRS is an initiative from the #loverecordstores campaign, which launched on 26th March to encourage music fans to shop online with their favourite record stores. Conceived as a way to allow artists to post supportive messages and videos on social media, it quickly achieved global momentum with some of the world’s biggest musicians backing the campaign.

Record Store Day has become an important fixture in the music retail calendar for UK record stores, labels and music fans alike, so it came as a real blow that the organisers have had no choice but to postpone this year’s event due to the continued Covid-19 crisis.

To ensure that this hugely important, annual opportunity to highlight the work of record stores remained active, the #loverecordstores campaign announced that it would step in and host #LRS.

With the aim of encouraging music fans to continue supporting independent record stores online a wide range of record labels have already pledged to make available exclusive, limited edition releases for #LRS.

Already confirmed are releases from: Oasis, Caribou, Belle and Sebastian, Arctic Monkeys, Beach House, Robyn, New Order, Jungle and John Grant and many more to be announced.

To support #LRS a 24-hour, online party is being curated by Tim Burgess and the #loverecordstores team, including exclusive ‘at home’ performances, DJ sets, ‘virtual drinks’, Q&A’s, readings and much more. Again, full details to follow.

Record labels taking part in #LRS are designing a range of exclusive T-shirt’s to be sold around the event with the proceeds going to Music Venue Trust’s #saveourvenues campaign.

Tim Burgess said, “The idea of what we would do without physical record shops has been a question we’ve asked in the past, but now it’s looking more possible than ever and we need to do whatever we can to help. Record shops are like drop in therapy centres for me – there’s a calmness, a familiarity and a sense of belonging that I don’t feel in many other places. A chance to talk with like-minded people – and maybe be reminded that you didn’t know as much about music as you thought you did. Like an animal threatened with extinction – we need to organise ourselves to try and stop it happening. Record shops have been good to me since I first ever spent time on my own – they’ve been good to us, let’s do what we can to help.”

Jason Rackham, UK Managing Director at [PIAS] and a co-founder of the #lovefrecordstores campaign said, “Tim Burgess has always been a huge supporter of independent record stores and having him on board as our ambassador for #LRS has given the campaign a real boost. Together we are curating an amazing day featuring dozens of fantastic, exclusive record releases from some of the world’s best labels and most loved artists, alongside a 24-hour party , which will be a lot of fun and will provide music fans with the motivation and opportunity to support independent record stores who really need our help at the moment. We are also delighted to be able to partner with Music Venue Trust to support their #saveourvenues campaign.”

#LRSD will be a day of online shopping for vinyl exclusives at favourite record stores with a range of strictly limited-edition releases being made available to music fans. The aim is to give participating stores the significant spike in custom they normally receive on Record Store Day while helping music fans satisfy their appetite for great music during this difficult period. 

Alongside new and exciting releases #LRSD will be supported with online, ‘instore’ performances by a number of artists and exclusive DJs sets being broadcast throughout the day.

A wide range of record labels are already confirmed to participate in #LRSD.

#LOVERECORDSTORES

London, March 25th 2020 – The music community are launching a high-profile, global initiative on Thursday of this week (26th March), to help independent record stores during the current coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

With many of these stores now experiencing a catastrophic drop-off in footfall or having already closed their doors there are fears that some may not survive if something is not done urgently to stimulate sales.

With that in mind, many music companies have already pledged their support for this new campaign which has been named #loverecordstores.

Companies are coordinating ideas, resources and mobilizing the artists they represent to record messages of support for record stores that can be used across all forms of social media.

Musicians, artists, actors and celebrity music fans around the world are being asked to film short video clips of themselves talking about, for example: what independent record stores mean to them, where their favourite store is, what records and artists those stores have helped them discover and most importantly to encourage their fans to continue to shop online with their favourite stores wherever possible.
