A look at Record Store Day through the years

Corner Record Shop in Grandville joined in the celebration with live music in the store all day.

Community members rally together for Old Towne Strings' weekly Hootenanny to play together while they browse the record selection.

The first Record Store Day was held on April 19, 2008, as a way to celebrate independent record stores, which are defined as "brick and mortar" retailers.

"A lot of people got rid of their records back in the 90s thinking it's not going to come back", Owner of Old Towne Strings Ty Striebel describes.

Record Store Day returned Saturday, and with it hundreds of early-rising vinyl lovers hoping to score exclusive records by Prince, Neil Young, Arcade Fire, Run the Jewels, the National and many others. On the day, there are also special vinyl and CD releases. And at shops across Tampa Bay, musicians popped in to play sets.

In Bradford, the Record Café in North Parade was the only store involved in the event, and had music fans queuing out of the door to get their hands on exclusive music and also to enjoy a glass of real ale. Third Man Records is a Nashville based record store that has a mobile store.

That tradition stuck, and in the years since, artists like Ozzy Osbourne and Iggy Pop have been record store day ambassadors. The comic book industry has "Free Comic Book Day" every May, so, it was argued, there should be something similar for the record collecting crowd.

The vinyl record, it's not just for parents and grandparents anymore as record sales and the independent record store have had a resurgence in popularity in the last decade. There's been an uptick in vinyl album sales every year since, sales went up 9% from 2016 to 2017, according to Billboard Magazine.
