Get a copy of Elvis' first recording

It’s time to celebrate vinyl.

Saturday is Record Store Day, an annual event that promotes independent record stores. Participating record stores across the world sell a limited supply of records released just for the day.

This year’s selection of 400 exclusive releases include David Bowie’s “Changes,” Bob Dylan’s “The Night We Called It a Day” and “15 Everly Hits” from The Everly Brothers.

Jeff Harrigfeld, co-owner of The Woodstock Music Shop in Woodstock, N.Y. said people were already lining up in front of the store before it opened at 9 a.m., with the first customer showing up at 5:30 a.m. to get first dibs. Harrigfeld’s personal favorite this year is a copy of Elvis’ first recording, a 10-inch record in a paper sleeve, recently purchased at auction by Jack White, lead singer and guitarist for The White Stripes. The record features two songs, “My Happiness” and “That’s When Your Heartaches Begin.”
