Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding almost 1,400 independently-owned record stores in the US and thousands of others internationally, the website says.

With some releases limited to 500 copies total, Record Store Day has become a bonanza for shoppers hoping to re-sell releases for a quick profit.
