DiS has put together a Record Store Day 2012 playlist featuring many of the things we're excited about purchasing on RSD12.
Saturday April 21st is the date you probably have scribbled in your diary already. If that day is blank, you'll wanna grab a big thick marker and write RECORD STORE DAY in that square/page/pixelated box, because that's the day when loads of one-off releases come out - there seem to be quite a few albums coming out on vinyl this year, including The Breakfast Club soundtrack and Mclusky Do Dallas.
This year's list of releases is as exhaustive as ever (full list is here!), so in an attempt to help you navigate through it all, we've put together this Record Store Day Spotify playlist (yeah, yeah, we know you love vinyl and hate the sound quality of streaming, and think Spotify is the devil's work...).
Please note, before you moan in the comment box: There are a couple substitutions, like Zomby is actually releasing 'Where were you in '92?' but that wasn't on Spotify, same goes for Bob Dylan's version of 'Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window' but Jimi's version was there, and Beach House are releasing a different track. Please feel free to leave any other incredibly pedantic remarks below, and, you could, like, maybe make your own playlist or tell us what you're excited about buying, and things like that.
