Epi Artists Shine on Record Store DayOk Epi fans, just to show that we're not all just about guitars, guitars, guitars, (or basses, mandolins, etc) we thought we'd talk to our friends at Record Store Day HQ to see how much money you need to set aside for Black Friday, the 2nd biggest day of the year for vinyl releases.  The answer is: a lot.

Besides The Beatles stereo LPs (the mono box is due in 2013--shhh you heard it here first) there are also special singles by My Chemical Romance, Slash, Machine Head, KISS, The Beach Boys (with Carl Wilson on his Epi Riviera 12-string), Band of Horses, David Bowie, Captain Beefheart and his Magic Band, Joan Jett, Frank Zappa, The White Stripes, The Rolling Stones, and Widespread Panic. And that's just the singles.

Skrillex, Tenacious D, Gary Clark Jr., and many others are commiting to LP releases with many more to come. If you think vinyl is kaput, find your local record store (yes, they're still out there). You'll be shocked by the variety of goodies out there.  Keep it right here for more news on our Epi artists. And just how does one make a record? Let this lovely couple from England show you how.
