Record Store Day 2015

 

April 13, 2015

Record Store Day 2015 took place on Saturday, April 18th. Here at Legacy we decided to create a vine-yl (get it – a vine of vinyls) of our releases for this year:

As you can see we had a lot on offer, from Sly & The Family Stone, Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Adam Ant, Jimi Hendrix, Manic Street Preachers and John Cooper Clarke.

Speaking of John Cooper Clarke, he performed at Berwick St London and they have created a little video all about their Record Store Day that we absolutely LOVE:
