Vinyl Makes a Comeback for Record Store Day

Vinyl Makes a Comeback for Record Store Day
Music fans prepare to celebrate the seventh annual Record Store Day


If you're the type who prefers vinyl music over digital, tomorrow is your day. Acts like Devo, The Allman Brothers Band, Dolly Parton, Public Enemy, Korn and R.E.M. will have exclusive releases for Record Store Day.

It's meant to help out independent record stores with releases not sold in big outlets. David Bowie will have a "1984" picture disc, and Harry Mancini's "The Pink Panther" will come out on pink vinyl.

Vinyl will not be the only thing available. Eric Clapton, Tegan (TEE'-gan) and Sara and My Chemical Romance will issue T-shirts, Jake Bugg will release a live album on CD, and Green Day and Skrillex will have releases on cassette.

The selection will vary from store to store.
