Record Store Day 2017 Rumors + Confirmed Titles

Share This:

Record Store Day isn’t until April 22 this year, and we’re expecting to see the official list of special titles that will be released for the big event later this month. But in the meantime, a long list of possible RSD titles has leaked, and we’ve gone through it and pared it down to the ones (mostly vinyl LPs) that have connections to classic rock.

We can’t promise that any or all of these will actually materialize next month, but the details–right down to the quantities–are so precise that we’re reasonably confident that they’ll all be included when the official list is released shortly. (Plus, it’s fun to speculate and never too early to start stashing those nickels.)

Titles that are verified are in green.
