OFFICIAL RSD 2020 POSTER DESIGN

Once again our friends at Dogfish Head Craft Brewery are bringing the Official Poster to the RSD 2020 party! This year's image was created by their 2020 Art Series artist Dan Stiles, who is creating amazing artwork for four of their Art Series beers. He's designed for Muse, Major Lazer, The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Guided By Voices and more... so we think his work is right at home in a record store or at home with you and your record collection!

One way to get this year's Official RSD 2020 Poster is to visit a record store on April 18-- these posters are part of the Party In A Box that participating stores will have, and they'll be free while they last.  Follow Record Store Day and Dogfish Head on social media to find out even more ways to get your hands on the limited edition Official RSD 2020 Poster.

A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS “BLIND BOX”  

A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS “BLIND BOX”
 
A Charlie Brown Christmas, certified 4X Platinum by the RIAA in 2016, is one of the best-selling jazz albums in history and it’s no surprise: Guaraldi’s engaging score for the synonymous holiday television special has introduced generations of children and their parents to the joys of jazz music, with tracks like the instantly recognizable “Linus and Lucy,” and yuletide favorite “Christmas Time Is Here.” The album was inducted into the GRAMMY® Hall of Fame in 2007 and the Library of Congress’s National Recording Registry five years later, and continues to be a perennial favorite, thanks to annual airings of the Christmas TV special.

Made to play on the RSD3 mini-turntable, the RSD3 A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS “BLIND BOX” series comes in an outer box that reproduces the original 12” album art, and includes one of four songs:“Christmas Time is Here (Vocal),” “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” “Linus and Lucy” and “Skating.”  Each track comes with its own unique pull-out poster.

Each 3" single in A Charlie Brown Christmas Blind Box Series will include ONE of these songs: 

VINCE GUARALDI TRIO "Christmastime is Here"
VINCE GUARALDI TRIO "Linus and Lucy" 
VINCE GUARALDI TRIO "Skating"
VINCE GUARALDI TRIO "Hark, The Herald Angels Sing"

SUN RECORD COMPANY ON RSD3

In 1952, Sam Phillips founded the legendary Sun Record Company and throughout the '50s changed the course of music with artists like Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley. In 1969, Shelby Singleton, a music executive who, with his brother John, ran a stable of labels in Nashville, took ownership of Sun. The Singleton family continues to guide the legacy of Sun Record Company to this day.

To mark the golden anniversary of Sun Record Company's move to Nashville with the Singletons, we're happy to present this RSD3 special collection of iconic tracks from the Sun vault, sized just right for a hit of rock 'n' roll!

Each release in this 3” series for the RSD3 mini-turntable comes with a collectible fold-out poster, and showcases four of the most iconic names in the Sun Record Company catalog, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Roy Orbison.

For more info on these Sun RSD3 releases, and all the titles in the 3" catalog see recordstoreday.com/RSD3
