Parlophone release some limited edition vinyl for National Record Store Day

Remember vinyl? Of course you do – vinyl records are still around, still in use and still probably the coolest (though least practical) way to store your music.

Well it’s National Record Store day on 17th April and Parlophone Records (and its imprint label, Regal) are releasing a series of limited 7″ vinyl records to celebrate and support vinyl lovers all over.

The series will run over a total of 12 artists, new urban hottie Tinie Tempah to the Beatles, originally released on Parlophone. Each release will come in a vintage-style paper Parlophone house bag which has been designed especially for the releases and uses elements of historic sleeves from the 1960s to the present day.

Each release is strictly limited (the maximum run is 1000) and exclusive to the independent record shops taking part in the event – of which 150 are in the UK, see more on the parlophone website.
