Record Store Day was founded in 2007 and has become an annual tradition that takes place every April. With a stated purpose of celebrating the culture of the independently owned record store, bands and labels will press unique items that are distributed exclusively to shops participating in the event.
For the first time, The Monkees will be represented on Record Store Day, which takes place on Saturday, April 16. In celebration of the group's 50th Anniversary, Rhino Records will issue a limited edition (4500 copies) 7" vinyl picture disc shaped in the mold of the famous Monkees guitar logo. The mono TV versions of "Saturday's Child" and "You Just May Be The One" make up both sides of the disc.
Visit the link posted below for more details. And be sure to find your nearest participating store.
Additionally, Record Store Day shoppers in both the United States and the United Kingdom will be able to purchase the recently released 10-CD box set, Classic Album Collection, on colored vinyl (in the US) and 180 gram vinyl (in the UK). This collection is limited to 3000 copies.
And if that wasn't enough, Micky Dolenz will be the first Monkee to have his solo recordings featured on Record Store Day when 7a Records issues a gatefold 7" single of "Chance of a Lifetime" and "Livin' On Lies" on transparent vinyl, exclusively in the UK (limited to 1000 copies).
