Record Store Day was founded in 2007 as a celebration of the unique culture surrounding over 700 independently owned record stores in the USA, and hundreds of similar stores internationally. This is the one-day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances.
The world still needs good record stores. As an indie label, we appreciate everything a good destination record store does for our artists. From their belief and support – even in those early stages of artist development – to their ongoing commitment to being a bastion of culture and good music; a good record store is a haven in which our artists thrive.” – Lenny Levine, President of Last Gang Records
