As most of you know, Record Store Day is upon us, this Saturday - celebrating all that is magical about independent music stores. With that comes many band's (often rare) vinyl contributions to this annual event. I'm particularly looking forward to picking up Heady Nuggs, the box set of the first 5 Flaming Lips' Warner Bros. albums. What are you looking forward to scoring?

I'll be down there to pick up the new Paul Simon record, and if I'm lucky enough to get my hands on one of those Lips box sets I'd consider it if it isn't like $500. Other than that, I'll be looking around for a copy of that Built to Spill 7" (their cover of the Dead's "Ripple" -- awesome!). And there's a Pinback 7" as well. Oh, and Gorillaz' The Fall is being released that day too.
I entered a raffle to win one of the limited edition copies of Tomboy, maybe I'll get lucky.
This is my first year hunting for records on Record Store Day. I was wondering if anyone knows what I should expect in terms of pricing. Are the releases more expensive since they are limited numbers or do the prices carry the average price tag for vinyl?
I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.

I'm excited about this! There are two stores on my street participating and the radio station I work for is really heavily promoting this. Can't believe I didn't hear about it until this year. I can't wait to stock up!
