As well as HMV having local musician Dan Burnett playing live at its Harrogate store tomorrow afternoon, Saturday as part of national Record Store Day, a long-established Harrogate institution for fans of Mozart and Mahler is also taking part.
Renowned for many years as the town’s leading classical music store, Pomp & Circumstance on Commercial Street is now stocking indie, rock and pop and is right behind this national celebration of independent record shops.
Launched in the USA in 2007, Record Store Day (RSD) is now an international event, celebrated in every country that loves and values independent record shops.
More than 200 stores are participating in the sixth Record Store Day in the UK and Ireland with a variety of crowd-pleasing activities such as:
RSD exclusives this year will feature limited edition records in every imaginable colour.
For example, this year The White Stripes’ Elephant is treleased on split-colour black and red vinyl, mastered direct from the original analogue source with a MP3 download card”
For the long-term record collector, there are also new, limited-edition, coloured vinyl re-issues of classic albums, EPs and singles by David Bowie, Human League, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones and many more.
