Record Store Day 2012

Well, another year has come and gone and I'm sad to say I did not get to my favourite record stores today. I did, however, play my almost-two-year-old some of his Fisher Price imitation vinyl. Record Store Day seems to get bigger every time, it seems like every artist wants to get in the action, which is cool. According to Rolling Stone magaine, record sales went up 36% lst year. Would you believe the vinyl version of The Beatles - Abbey Road sold 41,000 copies last year? How about Fleet foxes selling 29,700, or Radiohead selling 20,800?
