As per tradition, the organizers of Record Store Day will hold a satellite event on Black Friday (November 23rd). Though the day doesn’t offer the number of releases as the main event in April, there are still some exclusive, limited-edition releases to be hand. We’ve singled out a few notable releases below, and you can find the full list here.
