Record Store Day is the one day of the year when over 200 independent record shops all across the UK come together to celebrate their unique culture. Special vinyl releases are made exclusively for the day and many shops and cities host artist performances and events to mark the occasion. Thousands more shops celebrate the day around the globe in what’s become one of the biggest annual events on the music calendar.
2018 sees the reissue of the second Police single ‘Roxanne’, the first for A&M Records. Released in April 1978, it was the first single from debut album Outlandos d'Amour. Controversial in some territories, this seminal favourite was written about a man who falls in love with a prostitute. On re-release in 1979, the song peaked at number 12 on the UK Singles Chart. Bespoke gatefold sleeve with die-cut ‘dialling holes’ – front cover is the original UK red ‘telephone’ image. Blue European sleeve for inner sleeve. Reissue sleeve, with band photo, for inside gatefold. Original A-side and B-side – ‘Peanuts’. Both remastered at Abbey Road.
