"The original idea for Record Store day was conceived and founded in the USA back in 2007 as a celebration of the unique culture surrounding independently owned record stores in not only the USA but internationally. The UK soon followed suit in 2008 and has been growing gradually ever since. From a handful of stores in the first year, Record Store Day UK now plays host to over 190 stores.
On April 21st 2012, all of the independently owned record stores join forces with artists to celebrate the art of music. These artists make special appearances and performances across the globe alongside an extensive list of hundreds of exclusive products available for the day.
At Reflex records we have been participating in Record Store Day UK for the last two years. As part of this year's event we will be again participating and carrying almost the entire range of RSD titles..Additionally there will be a live acoustic set from a mystery local guest artist:)
"We at Reflex strongly believe that Record Store Day is a hugely important tool to convey to all generations, but especially the young, there are other possibly more interesting formats to collect your music on other than faceless, poor quality MP3 files and that supporting your local Record Store is important if you want real music to, not only prevail, but to grow and innovate.
We believe that the music industry as a whole needs to educate people that MP3 files , although hugely convenient, are indeed the modern equivalent to the cassette tape as they sacrifice sound quality for convenient file size and RSD helps to demonstrate this. Compare an MP3 simultaneously to a CD or Vinyl recording and I defy anyone to say the MP3 file is even close to the sound quality of its contemporaries, losing bass and high end definition. Record store day is all about real music of all genres on Vinyl (and some CD's) on one day only limited and very collectable editions. Since the advent of Record Store Day Vinyl Record sales have increased by circa 50% "
In 2011, 180 stores staged more than 200 events on the day and 2012 promises to be even bigger.
