This Saturday (20 April) Record Store Day returns for its ninth year. For the uninitiated, RSD is a celebration of physical music formats and, in particular, the dedicated, characterful shops that champion them.
Every year labels and bands of all shapes and sizes (from indies to majors) announce a line-up of limited-run Record Store Day exclusive releases. These items are usually produced in limited runs and distributed to participating stores around the world. It's like the ultimate musical treasure hunt.
Here's our pick of 40 of the best vinyl treats available this year, from psychedelic picture discs and ultra-rare soul 7", to unreleased Dylan tracks and the world's shortest album (on 5").
