The folks behind Record Store Day, per usual, put together a collection of exclusive releases available only at your local, independently-owned record shop.

If you really want one of the exclusive releases, get to the shop early. Many of Record Store Day’s offerings are limited-edition and get picked up quickly. Note that not all participating stores will get all the releases, so it’s a good idea to contact your local shop before going there early in the morning on Record Store Day to see what they expect to have in stock.

From the Cars to David Bowie, here are some Record Store Day 2017 highlights. These are all Record Store Day exclusives. For the full list of releases and to find a participating record shop, head to Record Store Day’s official website.
