Satchmi is joining the worldwide Record Store Day (RSD) celebrations this April 21 at the UP Town Center! For the very first time, Satchmi, in partnership with Offshore Records and Ayala Malls will give Filipino vinyl enthusiasts access to exclusive Record Store Day Vinyl, a limited collection of vinyl pressings or reissues that are only made available during RSD.
“It has always been Satchmi’s goal be part of the official list of record stores to be acknowledged by RSD. Now that it’s an internationally celebrated event, we are excited to have been awarded a pledge here in the Philippines,” shares Edric Chua, one of the founding members of Satchmi.
Ronald Sy, Satchmi’s Managing Director adds, “We worked extensively to bring in exclusive RSD Vinyl releases this year because we want our customers to experience how the US [along with the rest of the world] celebrates Record Store Day. It would be the very first time any record store has done this in the country.”
Here are our top picks from this year's RSD selection:
Phoenix – Monologue
A never-before-released track from their Ti Amo Diaries, pressed on red 7” heart-shaped vinyl.
David Bowie - Let’s Dance (Full-Length Demo)
First released as an edited version unearthed earlier this year by Parlophone, this 12” single features the debut of its full-length version, clocking in at 7 minutes and 34 seconds long. (Another RSD album of David Bowie, the rare Bowie Now compilation, will also be available in Satchmi stores.)
Led Zeppelin - Friends / Rock and Roll
Lez Zeppelin's first Record Store Day exclusive, featuring unreleased mixes of two songs. Pressed on yellow vinyl.
