Record Store Day 2012 Hits Tomorrow

Rare vinyl releases celebrate the independent record shop on April 21

Crack open your piggybanks and make room on your shelves: Tomorrow, April 21, is Record Store Day-that special day when music fans make a point to obtain their tunes the old-school way, at brick-and-mortar retail outlets staffed by helpful, knowledgeable human beings.

A grip of limited-run recordings will be introduced tomorrow or exclusive to Record Store Day. We pulled the prime jazz stuff in the links below, but visit the official Record Store Day site for the full list and to check for participating stores close to you. And note that not all participating stores are going to carry all these records.

Happy hunting!
