RSD 2016: Preliminary releases reportedly leak

News / Record Store Day 2016 / February 3, 2016

Through the Vinyl Collective boards, it seems like we have a chunk of Record Store Day 2016 releases out in public view. Now this list can’t be 100% confirmed, as the user is remaining quiet on how they got their hands on it (probably a solid plan), but you can see the releases below.

I’m going to say it’s pretty accurate given the amount of detail and the releases I’ve been able to independently confirm, such as the Star Wars 10″, Albert Hammond Jr. first pressing and Chvrches remix EP, among others.

Also, this is not the full list, I’ve confirmed that.
