The day after Thanksgiving, commonly known as Black Friday, has always been a day to empty your wallets and stuff your home full of discounted items. This year, it will also be a day to give your record player some sweet, sweet tuneage. Record Store Day, typically held in April, will have a second showing on November 26th as loads of labels and bands release exclusive, limited edition music. In addition to The Black Keys Brothers box set we reported on earlier, check out a list of some of the standouts below.
