Started in 2007 Record Store Day is an annual event to celebrate the independent music store. Record Store Day has grown into an international event, and many artists and record companies release special vinyl records for the day, only available in participating stores.
This year Universal Music is releasing a special 12 inch blue glitter single of ‘Voulez-Vous (Extended Dance Remix)’ back with ‘If It Wasn’t For The Nights’, also from the Voulez-Vous album. The single is limited to 5,000 copies. The remix of ‘Voulez-Vous’ was first released on a US promotional 12 inch single in 1979, and first commercially released on The Definitive Collection double CD in 2001.
The ABBA Fan Club Shop will have some copies for sale for fans, though at this stage it is not known how many copies. Presumably it will also be available through ABBA – The Official Site, as its webstore is run by Bengans, which fits the description of an independent record store.
Record Store Day is Saturday 21 April, 2012.
