Some choice selections for Record Store Day Black Friday.

Analog audiophiles know November 29th, 2019 as Record Store Day Black Friday.  And just in time, good news for a loved Chicagoland record shop:  The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Val’s halla Records in Oak Park has reversed course and will continue to keep its doors open, extending the story on a 47 year legacy of music.  And that’s a good thing.

RSD Black Friday is Christmas come early for fans of vinyl.  And here are just a few of the items you might be able to get your hands on (check with your local shop to see if they will have inventory):
