Sister Ray Records Announces Record Store Day

Sister Ray Records, based in Berwick Street, Soho, London, is proud to be taking part in this year's Record Store Day; the event is on Saturday April 21st from 8am-8pm.

After the huge success of last year’s Record Store Day, which was their busiest day ever, the world renowned independent record shop will be stocking the vast majority of over 400 limited edition titles, which have been manufactured for this special event. These include releases by Kate Bush, Arcade Fire, Bruce Springsteen, PIL, Coldplay, Elbow, Metallica, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Arctic Monkeys, Black Keys, Vaccines, amongst many others.

Customers started queuing outside the shop the night before last year to be the first to buy these limited records; they are expecting it to be even busier this year.

There will be in-store signing sessions with Jim Kerr and Charlie Burchill from Simple Minds, an appearance from Billy Bragg and various other guests will be visiting the shop throughout the day.

St Etienne’s Bob Stanley and respected music critic Pete Paphides have both agreed to work behind the record counter for a few hours, so customers will be able to discuss the whereabouts of that extremely rare 7" single from an obscure all-female 60’s pop group!

All customers that purchase a Record Store Day release in the shop will be entered into a special draw to win an exclusive Jack White "white label" vinyl copy of his forthcoming album Blunderbuss.

Record Store Day is now in its fifth year and has been instrumental in helping independent record shops in these challenging times. For more information:
