He said the store has been participating in Record Store Day, since it started in 2007. It has increased our contact with music lovers through out the region, allowed us to build our network of musicians locally and nationally, promote music and playing music to people that hadn't considered playing an instrument.

Record Store Day celebrates the unique culture of independent record shops, and is celebrated by more than 200 shops across the UK. In the last few years, the Princeton Record Exchange has had more than 1,500 limited edition pieces for sale on Record Store Day.

Back when Record Store Day began, Jon Lambert never imagined the event would be such a hit with collectors. Record stores from across the world are flooded with not only fans, but folk of interest and an overall musical essence too. Lo-fi king Mac Demarco has two separate records up for grabs and of course you can't miss indie classics from the likes of Wolf Alice and The Courteeners; they're essentials to any collection and we're not against fighting to get our hands on them!

Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding almost 1,300 independently owned record stores in the U.S., and thousands of similar stores internationally.

He thinks the reason vinyl has become "cool" again is because people have a desire for music to mean more, and they want it to return to a medium of art.

Record Store Day is noted for limited releases, or pressings, of certain records.

On Apr. 21, local record stores all around the United States celebrate their communities with limited edition releases, live music, food and much more. With a cassette or CD, you can press play and walk away.
