With everything that’s been going on in the world, this year’s Record Store Day has an altogether different feel.

The main day itself was originally scheduled to take place back in April, but it was postponed and split into three separate days in order to maintain social distancing directives. 

This year’s first Record Store Day took place on August 29, with part two coming up this Saturday (September 26) – and while there won’t be quite as much music available as last month, there’s still plenty of choice cuts to get stuck into.

We’ve gone through the list and hand-picked our 20 favourite Record Store Day releases that’ll be available on Saturday. 

Highlights include Jealous Again by The Black Crowes –a 12-inch repressing of the original 1990 release – and Fleetwood Mac’s The Alternate Rumours, which includes different takes and demos from the original Rumours studio sessions.

Our wallets are also ready to be thrown wide open for The Wall - Live In Berlin by Roger Waters. The show was recorded in the German capital in 1990 – just eight months after the fall of the Berlin Wall, with this RSD release presented on double clear vinyl.

Don’t forget that the next Record Store Day ‘drop’ is coming  your way on October 24, so keep your peepers on the official website for further info.
