Saturday, April 16 is Record Store Day. Record Store Day was launched in 2007 when over 700 independent stores in the USA came together to celebrate their unique culture; the UK followed suit, and 2011 will see the third celebration of the UK's unique independent sector. This is the one day that all of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day, and hundreds of artists across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include meet & greets with artists, DJ's, live performances, in-store quizzes, and many other events. Deep Purple are marking the 2011 occasion by releasing a "retro" single containing "Hush" recorded for Chris Grant's "Tasty Pop Sundae" in early 1969 and "Speed King," recorded for Stuart Henry's "Noise At Nine" in October of that same year. Both tracks are from the upcoming "BBC Sessions" project. The picture sleeve is based on the original Harvest art and will be unveiled next week. The limited-edition single will be distributed to the participating indie shops in the UK; only 1400 copies will be pressed. Thanks for the report to
