Record Store Day is like Christmas in April for both fans and independent record shops. Fans make pilgrimages to local shops seeking limited-edition releases, free shows, band signings, bonuses, sales and, if you're lucky, free food. The releases are hyper-limited—smaller stores may only get one or two of what's ordered, if any at all. To fans, this makes them all the more coveted.
Here's a selection of the more unique collaborations, compilations and covers.
