Happy Record Store Day! Itunes, CD's, Spotify, Tidal, Cassette tapes, and Vinyl are all apart of the ways we consume music in today's generation. With all these platforms out, one thing connecting them has remained constant throughout the time of its creation, Record Stores. Record stores have been around since the late 19th century, and since then they have continued to be a hub for all things music. From Country to Gospel, Record Stores got it all. No matter what year it is, Vinyl still hold a level of value that can't be defeated. A lot of people assume that artist don't put their music on Vinyl anymore; however, I'm pretty sure your favorite artist has released their project on a Vinyl as well. In my opinion, real music lovers should always hold physical copies of the albums they truly adore. Record Store day was created to pay homage to all the independently own records stores around the world. Since 2007, this day has served as a center of unity for artist, musicians, shops, and music enthusiast. With the headquaters being in the United States, since its creation, Record Store Day has spread as far as the UK. Stores create contest, special releases, and music events that promotes the holiday as a whole.
