record store day 2013 Record Store Day 2013: 'Let's wake each other up,' writes ambassador Jack WhiteSaturday, April 20 is Record Store Day 2013. Will you be buying any vinyl?

Jack White writes on the official website:

Record Store Day Ambassador of 2013 I’m proud to help in any way I can
to invigorate whoever will listen with the idea that there is beauty and
romance in the act of visiting a record shop and getting turned on to
something new that could change the way they look at the world, other
people, art, and ultimately, themselves. 

Let’s wake each other up.

There are also dozens of records being released only at record stores on Saturday. Some of the really fun ones include a “Dazed and Confused” soundtrack being released on “weed green” vinyl, Porno for Pyros self-titled LP on swirl vinyl and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts “Album” on yellow vinyl.

Others exclusive vinyl releases include Ani DiFranco’s “Buffalo,” Ben Harper’s “By My Side,” Blind Melon’s “Blind Melon + Sipping Time” EP, Bob Dylan’s “Wigwam” 7″, Buddy Guy’s “Hold That Plane,” David Bowie’s “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” 7″, The Grateful Dead’s “Rare Cuts & Oddities 1966” and The White Stripes’ “Elephant” 10th anniversary.
